A comprehensive guide to the K-pop girl group who are taking the music world by storm. The sassiest, most stylish girls around - BLACKPINK!
'Blackpink in Your Area!' The K-pop girl group are taking their catchphrase literally; they have just finished a sell-out stadium world tour. Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa, all beautiful and supremely talented women in their early 20s, are the hottest thing in pop right now - and they only have a dozen songs!
If Blackpink were ever a secret, the secret was out by April 2019, when they headlined Coachella, and their fandom - known as Blinks - suddenly included Ariana Grande and Harry Styles. They are the first female K-pop group to have had four #1 singles on Billboard's World Digital chart, and their single 'Ddu-Du Ddu-Du' became the most viewed music video by a K-pop group on YouTube - take that, BTS!
This book is the perfect unofficial guide to Blackpink. It relates their days as trainees, their debut, their hits and success in the US, examines the personalities of each of the members and details their choreography, fashion and style triumphs and reveals why they are 'the only gang to run the game in high heels'.
