It was the 8th of August! The BLINKS have prepared a lot of surprises and gifts for their beloved girl group; some are expensive, some are time consuming, but all of them are of course amazing. Now my contribution is to write a blog for them, to at the same time experiment on my blog and share my love!

BLACKPINK introduced my love to K-pop
I remembered liking 2NE1's hit musics, but I've never been a big fan of other k-pop music, so when my k-pop loving friend rambled on about "fan war" or fangirling about a k-pop boy band, I can't never really join.Well, until... last year.
On December 2016 I found Lisa's picture in my IG's explore page and I was intrigued when I found out she's a K-pop idol from Thai! I am a South East Asian myself, and when I see a representation to a world I never knew I wanted in my life, I slowly gain interest.
I remembered having "Boombayah" as literally the first music I've heard on 2017 because I knew that BLACKPINK is going to be special for me. Slowly, until last month I started to listen to other K-pop idols like Red Velvet, EXO, and I'm starting to open up to BTS too. Family like K-pop group is my weakness!
Now, I'm not into idols or k-pop in general because it is mostly manufactured visuals, and I remembered hearing how difficult a life of a k-pop idol was and how many of them commit suicide. But I feel like the idols coming from YG entertainment just seem to have less.. pressure on them (compared to other companies.) Correct me if I'm wrong! But personally I find the members to have more personalities and they seem to genuinely be enjoying themselves. The fact that they post all of their dance practice and have their own youtube channel is another plus.
Also, most of the idols I know that came from YG seem to have a family bond with their members and it's very heart warming. I also love the fact that BLACKPINK have 4 members, making it an ideal, balanced number for a group; it's not too much, or too little.
Their latest MV "AS IF IT'S YOUR LAST"
I have to be honest at first it was a bit hard trying to distinct their voices, and I keep mixing them up. But really, Jennie's rap skill is to die for, Rosé and Jisoo's voices are amazing, and my bias: Lisa, whom I just adore with her charisma and dancing skills gives BLACKPINK the perfect chemistry.
I have to say that they're all really lucky to meet one another, and to be able to make hit songs, looking bad-ass and cute with the people you love, having no heavy pressure on dieting (based on their radio interview), debut in Japan, and all that in only one year! The international fans they've gathered are also breath taking.
Official Art by BLACKPINK
Well, they made some drawings during the days before the Anniversary. I love all of it (obviously). By far, Lisa's part is my favourite because I love how she colours. But.. maybe I'm being a little bit biased hahaha, JK, I just wanted to point that out. I love all of them.
