Lisa was the third to make her solo debut with the album, Lalisa. Released in September 2021, the album and its songs broke several records.
Jisoo, meanwhile, has been building up an acting résumé. She debuted with a cameo in the 2015 series The Producers before taking up the lead role in the critically acclaimed K-drama Snowdrop in 2021.
As a group, BLACKPINK released its second full-length studio album, Born Pink, in September 2022. The album debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 the following month.
The group has been on its “Born Pink” world tour since October 2022. The tour started in Seoul, South Korea, and is set to conclude in Sydney, Australia, on 17 June 2023. BLACKPINK will also headline the 2023 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on 15 and 22 April 2023.
