BLACKPINK briefly visited LA before visiting KIIS FM for an interview with radio personality  JoJo Wright .

Although they admit that they’ve fallen behind, the members still can’t wait to make up for their fans on the long-awaited second-longest album,  BORN PINK .

The group also discussed getting used to life during the tour. Their last major tour lasted from November 2018 to February 2020 as the group traveled to Asia, North America, and Europe on their In Your Area world tour   .

The BORN PINK tour   was promised to be the biggest tour ever held for a K-Pop girl group, so the interview covered their preparations for this 45-show tour. .

Despite a lot of preparation for a tour of this magnitude, BLACKPINK shared that they missed the tour and often spent their free time watching old tour videos.

When it comes to preparing for their world tour, Jennie and Rosé admit it’s no small task, joking that they’ve packed up their entire lives.

After discussing the preparations for their tour, BLACKPINK was asked about pre-show etiquette. Lisa  shared that she would do the stretching first, while Jennie happily volunteered to talk about  Jisoo’s unique ritual.

“Jisoo unnie really likes to eat spicy noodles, spicy food right before she goes on tour.” – said Jenny

When JoJo looked surprised, Jennie explained that Jisoo feels like eating spicy food helps open up her vocal cords before performing. Jennie joked that she disagreed with Jisoo’s reasoning but respected her etiquette.

Rosé and Lisa had the opposite reaction, agreeing that they should give it a try sometimes.

Each member has their own way to get in the mood, as long as they give their best in concert nights.
