The K-pop girl group revealed the real meaning of BLACKPINK and the title of its debut album, The Album, in Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The K-pop all-girl group BLACKPINK composed of Rose, Lisa, Jisoo, and Jennie sat down for a virtual interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The group shared how they came up with the name BLACKPINK.
BLACKPINK: Black to the pink
Rose explained to Jimmy Kimmel that BLACKPINK is something like them.
Black and pink are two colors that represented them the most. The members are girly (pink), but at the same time, they are savage too (black). They have a song called Pretty Savage, and it kind of goes with BLACKPINK.
Other members of the group agreed that it best describes their personalities well.
Years of training
BLACKPINK also talked about their Netflix documentary BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky. It shows behind-the-scenes of the group’s creation. The members are trained in special schools with meticulous dancing, singing, and performance.
Jimmy pointed out that the school is a Hogwarts, Harry Potter, or an X-Men type of situation. The special schools do not have formal school curriculum studies such as math or history.
Rose was pretty happy when she heard that it was the kind of school she will be enrolled in.
She thinks that she is personally excited that they would get to rid of all those. In her opinion, those subjects are annoying. But in the long run, she means that it would be nice if they are educated that way.
However, the particular school is mainly about performance training and as well as language. The agency taught the members how to speak or understand different languages.
Fans tagged Jisoo as the one who is the slowest in speaking the English language. On the bright side, Jisoo can understand the language well.
