BLACKPINK Member Profile

JISOO

Jisoo

Jisoo-Whistle

Jisoo in “Whistle” (2016)

Real Name: Kim Jisoo (김지수)
Birthday: January 3, 1995
Zodiac Sign: Capricorn (Western), Dog (Eastern)
From: Gwacheon, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea

Position(s): Lead Vocalist, Visual, Face of the Group
*I’m not sure if BLACKPINK actually has a “face” at this point because they’re all relatively popular (and don’t have a lot of individual activities to set themselves apart). But Jisoo did a lot of stuff pre-debut, so she still might be the most recognizable for non-fans.

Other Activities Outside of BLACKPINK:

Pre-debut:

*Appeared in labelmate Epik High’s “Spoiler + Happen Ending” and Hi Suhyun’s “I’m Different” with Lee Hi and iKon’s Bobby.

*Did various CFs, some with labelmate iKon.

*Made a cameo on KBS 2TV’s “Producer.”

Post-debut:

*Currently hosts SBS Inkigayo with GOT7’s Jinyoung and NCT’s Doyoung.

JENNIE

Jennie

Jennie-Boombayah

Jennie in “Boombayah” (2016)

Real Name: Jennie Kim (김제니)
Birthday: January 16, 1996
Zodiac Sign: Capricorn (Western), Pig (Eastern)
From: Seoul, South Korea (also spent some time in New Zealand)

Position(s): Main Vocalist, Lead Rapper
*A lot of other sites list her as Main Rapper and Lead Vocalist, but I think that’s based on their debut. She hasn’t rapped in their last title tracks, so I think this is more accurate.

Other Activities Outside of BLACKPINK:

Pre-debut:

*Featured in G-Dragon’s “Black,” Seungri’s “GG Be,” and Lee Hi’s “Special.”

*Appeared in G-Dragon’s “That XX” in 2013.
