When asked about what inspired the global K-pop sensation to become a musician, Lisa replied, “I remember the moment I first fell in love with dance—the first time I watched a K-pop idol perform in Thailand is still vivid in my mind. Captivated by the powerful performance and its energy, I decided to learn how to dance and pursue my dream of being a singer. As I learned and explored different dance genres, I naturally grew interested in music, which made me realise that I was totally fascinated by music and dancing. “
The star then shared her experience so far as a solo artist. “BLACKPINK members discuss and make decisions together. However, as a solo artist, I had to decide on every detail such as the song, choreography, styling, music video, album covers and more. It was a new experience for me, thanks to my company which valued and followed my suggestions. I gained a lot of confidence in myself, which also had a positive influence on my group activities as well. I believe my decision- making skills improved, which was especially helpful for our comeback,” she said.
The icon then revealed what motivates her to become a better artist. “As I go on tour from city to city, I look forward to performing for BLINKs [the name bestowed on the BLACKPINK fandom] there, and I feel a sense of responsibility to give them the best memories. I hope our fans have a good time and feel happy watching us perform since that energy affects me as well. It motivates me to become a better artist so that I can always present excellence to them. I am the happiest and most confident when I am onstage,” the ‘money’ singer shared.
Lisa talks about her future adventures
When asked about what adventures she likes to embark on next, the star replied, “Rather than a big adventure, I would like to travel to a place I’ve never been before with my family after the tour. It doesn’t have to be a trip around the world, but I would like to visit a country I’ve never visited before, especially Egypt! Last year was a very busy year for me, and our ‘Born Pink World Tour’ is scheduled to run until June [with a stop in Singapore on 13 and 14 May], so I’m really looking forward to my trip.”
Lisa finally shared the things she finds inspiration in right now. “Recently, I’ve gained inspiration and energy from performing in so many different cities. Meeting and talking to people from different places, examining what kind of clothes they wear, and looking into their cultures inspires me. The various reactions and feedback we receive from each city also give us energy and creative ideas,’ she added.
