Why We Love Them

They broke records being one of the all-female Korean girl-group to perform in Coachella yet these girls remained youthful and they never forget to connect with their fans.
BLINKs continues to shower them their love and support in every project they had to: be it a solo debut or a TV show they appear as guests.
Right now, BLACKPINK’s latest comeback is with Kill This Love that has swept charts and made trends with their upbeat dance moves and their catchy tune!
