On June 22, BLACKPINK held an interview where they talked about their upcoming comeback.
After releasing “Playing With Fire” back in November, the group is returning with their new track “As If It’s Your Last” on June 22 at 6 p.m. KST.
During the interview, BLACKPINK commented, “It hasn’t been a long break but we’d like to thank all the fans who have waited for us.”
In regards to their new image for this comeback, Jisoo said, “We will be making a comeback with a track that has a different genre than the ones we’ve done in the past. It’s a track that fits well with the summer atmosphere and brings out our lively charms. If our previous songs had a more ‘black’ color to them, then this song has more of a ‘pink’ color vibe. We had prepared a lot in the past to bring more powerful performances, but for this song, we have a choreography that is easier to follow and we even blow kisses. There are a lot of cute, pretty elements mixed in.”
The members also talked about receiving a lot of popularity overseas, saying, “Because we have a non-Korean member in our group, we think overseas fans are naturally more interested. We haven’t shown a variety of images within Korea yet. We’re planning to show more of our different images through this new comeback.”
They also talked about their passion for music, saying, “Just like our trainee days, whenever we have time, we practice. It’s a little hard because expectations for our group are growing, but we try to work really hard and maintain a sense of tension.”
When asked about their upcoming goals, Jennie said, “Our goal for this comeback is to make our name more known to the public. We’ve always had a goal to be a group that people can come to for good quality music, but in order for this to happen, we think people need to know who we are more first. Through ‘Like It’s Your Last,’ we hope more people will start to believe in us. Because we’re still rookies, we don’t have a big picture dream just yet. It would be nice if we become more easily recognized by the public.”
Meanwhile, BLACKPINK is set to release their new track “As If It’s Your Last” on June 22 at 6 p.m. KST.
