Recently, Jisoo participated in a photo shoot for Marie Claire magazine. In the interview that followed, the idol talked about BLACKPINK’s busy schedule with future projects. On the group’s upcoming single with Selena Gomez, Jisoo shared, “We weren’t able to meet in person. We each adjusted our schedules and communicated numerous times to finish the project. I thought she was such a refreshing and cool person after seeing her share her opinions in an easygoing manner even though she’s a global star.”
In June, BLACKPINK became the female artist with the most subscribers on YouTube, and Jisoo shared that she felt proud and happy to receive the title. BLACKPINK also recently became the fourth most-subscribed artist in the world. On the type of influence she wants to give others, Jisoo revealed, “I hope that someone will see me and gain confidence. After seeing me work hard and succeeding after my hard work, I hope they think, ‘I can do it too,’ and ‘I also want to find something of my own.'”
She added, “I don’t mean that they should just copy me blindly. Everyone has a different charm, and there’s no point in just copying. I hope they see me and discover their own identities.” Asked if she was born with talent or had to work for it, she described herself as someone who was “born with the ability to work hard.” She commented, “I work hard in everything, and the process of working hard isn’t too difficult for me. That’s why I think I was born with that ability.” Jisoo continued, “I’m not afraid to try new challenges and hear others’ opinions. I’m open to other people’s opinions while keeping my style and my method. Though it’s embarrassing to admit, I like that about myself.” The singer also described herself as someone who lives without regrets after going through with a decision.
Jisoo shared that these days, she has been very happy promoting with her members. She explained, “While on tour, we were always together, but recently, we had been busy individually. Even though it was tiring at the time, I miss the time we were on tour abroad a lot.” She added, “These days, the four of us play, eat, and talk together while promoting, so it’s very enjoyable.”
The singer also revealed that she enjoys eating and watching dramas with Lisa in her free time. She elaborated, “Lisa always watches dramas while eating, so I have been watching the same drama Lisa has been watching. Recently, we’ve been binge watching ‘Goblin.’ Lisa has also been enjoying ‘It’s Okay to Not Be Okay,’ so I’m watching it with her. The funny thing is that I find it more enjoyable to watch Lisa watching the drama rather than the drama itself,” adding that Lisa is very cute while reacting to the dramas.
Jisoo also touched upon her growing interest in fashion after working as a beauty ambassador for Dior. She explained that it was a huge honor to work as a model for the same brand as actress Natalie Portman, who she is a huge fan of.
Finally, Jisoo shared that after the interview, she will be going to the recording studio. She explained, “After the release of this special single album, we’re preparing for a studio album, so these days, recording has become part of my daily life. Please look forward to it.”
Meanwhile, It was recently revealed that Jisoo will be taking on her first leading role in a drama.
