Fans can’t help but think of BLACKPINK’s possible disbandment after being on a lengthy hiatus. As YG Entertainment announced the group’s return, Lisa revealed they hadn’t talked about parting ways.
BLACKPINK debuted in 2016. Since then, they dropped hits after hits until they took a break in 2020. So, does this extended hiatus mean Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa are about to go solo?
BLACKPINK Lisa Denies Disbandment Rumors
There’s no way the K-Pop idols will go on their own ways. Their contract is still up to 2023, and they are now actively working on their comeback album, Koreaboo noted.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the group’s rapper addressed the disbandment issue and denied the claim.
When asked what would happen if BLACKPINK parted ways, she said, “I don’t think we’ve even talked about this amongst ourselves.”
Though she admitted that the girls would usually joke about their futures, going solo is still far from happening and will not even occur soon.
“We’ve jokingly said, ‘Jisoo unnie is going to live in Hawaii. Lisa will return to Thailand,’” Lisa revealed. “But I don’t want to think about the end. It’s too sad.”
She knows BLACKPINK will end someday, but she’s hopeful that they will still be together and hold reunion concerts.
“Someday, we’ll get married and things like that. But then I see the Spice Girls, how they got together for a reunion concert,” the “Lalisa” hitmaker continued. “Can we do that too someday? Will I be able to dance then, like I do now?”
Anyhow, she believes their group will still last for 10 more years. At the time, she will be near her 40s, and she has no idea what she will be doing then.
Lisa then gave an update about their return.
“[These days] we’re all going back and forth from the recording studio, or doing our own stuff, or going abroad because of a fashion business,” she revealed. “I’ve been working nonstop for the past week without a break.”
Lisa Talks about Being YG Entertainment Senior
It has been known that Lisa is originally from Thailand. She left her home country to try her luck in South Korea, and thankfully, she had succeeded.
Since then, she has become an inspiration to many, especially to aspiring idols from different countries.
She’s now considered a YG sunbaenim or senior in English, and new trainees treat her with the utmost respect.
“They bow, like, 90 degrees, ‘Annyeonghaseyo!’” she said.
But aside from advising new trainees, Lisa sees being someone who is there for them as more important. Hence, she’s trying to be a sister figure to aspiring K-pop artists by going out and bonding with them.
