On October 17, jTBC’s Ask Us Anything welcomed back BLACKPINK after three years. The quartet’s highly-anticipated return to the popular variety show is remarkable for them, as the show is where they made their first guest appearance.
The four-piece mentioned their various collaborations during the episode of Ask Us Anything: Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Selena Gomez, and Dua Lipa.
Lisa also brought up the story of their reunion with Hollywood actor Will Smith during Coachella‘s music festival last year.
BLACKPINK in Coachella: The story
Lisa expressed that Will Smith and his son visited the group’s agency, YG Entertainment, during their trainee days. During that time, they put on a dance performance for them.
She said that it’s already been six or seven years since their acquaintance, and after they’d debuted, they ran into him at Coachella. It turned out Will Smith still remembered them.
Will Smith recognized BLACKPINK and asked, “Aren’t you the girls who danced for us back then?” Rosé chimed.
Jennie is Jennie’s Korean name
Jennie surprised the cast later on in the show, as she shared that her Korean name is also Jennie.
The idol explained that regarding her name that people typically don’t think Jennie is her real name, but the Korean version of it is still Jennie.
Jennie revealed that her mom is a fan of Lee Jung Jae, and he played a character named Jae Hee in the drama Hourglass.
She continued that her mother admired the actor so much. So the matter made her mother decide to give the name “Jae Hee” if she had a son.
But she ended up bearing a girl. Instead of Jae Hee, she gave the name Jennie since it sounds similar.
Jisoo revealed, at one point in the episode, an unexpected habit of hers. She said that she always makes sure to eat ramen beforehand whenever she has to film something important.
She said that she wants to have fuller cheeks than the other group members, making them look cute.
How Rosé ended up as a BLACKPINK member
Rosé revealed that her house in Australia was pretty far away from their closest neighbors.
And with the location of their home, she can play the piano until late at night. As she practices singing, she screams while playing the piano.
One day her dad asked her if she wanted to take a 1-2 hour flight and go for an audition. She noted that she was shocked since she never told her dad that she wanted to become a singer.
“But I passed the audition, and that’s how I came to Korea and became a trainee,” she said.
BLACKPINK also danced to snippets of their songs during the episode of Ask Us Anything. They include How You Like That, Lovesick Girls, and Pretty Savage in their performances.
