BLACKPINK expressed their gratitude for all their fans in honor of their very first debut anniversary!
On August 8, 2016, the girl group made their debut under YG Entertainment with double title tracks “BOOMBAYAH” and “Whistle.” Since then, they’ve released several more successful songs, including their latest, “As If It’s Your Last,” which just hit 100 million views.
In order to commemorate their anniversary, the members left heartfelt messages in Korean, English, and Thai along with several photos through their official Instagram account.
In Korean, BLACKPINK wrote, “It is August 8, 2017 at 8 p.m. KST.”
“Today marks the first day BLACKPINK and BLINKs met each other. While being interviewed about our first debut anniversary, we think that we’ve talked a lot about how we have a lot of regrets. We believe it’s because of our desire to always show a better version of ourselves, but now that our anniversary is actually here, we only want to remember the good memories.”
“Thank you for giving us many good and happy memories during the past year. We’re curious [to know] if we’ve also given BLINKs many happy memories through our performances and various appearances.”
“We’ll show you even more aspects of ourselves from now on. So, we hope that we will come to have a relationship [with you] where we can encourage each other when we’re tired, and share our joy when we are happy. Let’s stay by each other’s side for a long, long time. We love you and see you soon.”
