Becoming a Kpop idol for money? BLACKPINK Jennie has an answer that makes netizens ‘cringe’

BLACKPINK was recently  named “Entertainer of the Year” by TIME . In keeping with the title, their photos have been featured on magazine covers and social media sites. They also received a dedicated interview about their career to date. 

Here, a number of topics of interest were covered, from their diverse cultural backgrounds to their worldwide success. The magazine mentioned the group’s contribution to the billion-dollar K-Pop industry.

“K-Pop generates up to $10 billion in sales every year. BLACKPINK in particular is a serious engine in that market, especially for YG.” – TIME

This is not an exaggerated statement, YG  Entertainment’s stock alone has  gone up every time BLACKPINK makes a successful comeback to the industry.

Jennie  admits that there is a significant amount of money involved in this industry. At the same time, she wanted to emphasize that no member pursues a career as a K-Pop idol for financial gain.

“If we looked at this in the way of business, we wouldn’t be able to do this.” – said Jenny

Every BLACKPINK member has a packed schedule. In the past few months alone, they’ve had to practice for their  BORN PINK world  tour while promoting their title track “Shut Down” and attending  Paris Fashion Week.  They also shoot content for their social media sites and endorsements.

As Jennie explained, they do all of this not for money reasons but out of love for their work and fans. A stressful, high-reward career is something they’re motivated to pursue because it’s also their passion.

“We do it from our hearts.” – Jennie

Finally, Lisa added that the best thing about their recent world tour was being able to meet the BLINKs in person, something they were unable to do for the past two years due to restrictions of ᴄᴏᴠɪᴅ- 19.

“Being able to come back with the team to tour and meet fans around the world is the best part.” — Lisa

Is BLACKPINK the best girl group in the world?

The influence of BLACKPINK was recognized by Billboard when they were the only K-pop artists to enter this chart at the end of 2022.

In 2022, BLACKPINK works quite hard. They have many product launches from albums, MVs to global tours.


In particular, the songs on the 2nd full album “Born Pink” help them own a series of prestigious achievements and awards.

According to Billboard’s chart, in the 100 best songs of 2022, BLACKPINK is the only Korean artist to have the honor of making the top of this list.

Accordingly, the title song  Shut Down  on the group’s Born Pink album was ranked at No. 91 by Billboard.

With this achievement of BLACKPINK, Billboard said that they have elevated themselves with Shut Down. Along with that, Billboard also gave “winged” words to the YG girls as calling them the best girl group in the world at the moment. BLACKPINK’s influence on the global music scene is completely undisputed.

Of course, this is just a separate comment from Billboard’s side. But through this, it also shows their attraction in the world music market.

Not only Billboard, just in the past few days, BLACKPINK has been continuously honored by many major newspapers and media platforms such as Rolling Stone, Spotify thanks to the success of the Born Pink album as well as two singles Pink Venom and Shut Down.

Specifically, BLACKPINK has just appeared on the cover of TIME magazine with the title of Entertainer of the Year. BLACKPINK is also the first girl group in history to receive this prestigious title.

Again, although in 2022, BLACKPINK more or less creates certain controversies from the products they launch, however, their attraction and popularity after returning to the Kpop race is indisputable. .
