Debut Year – Phenomenal Rookies (2016)
There was so much hype on YG’s new girl group, as K-Pop fans all over the world were excited to see who will be the next 2NE1. On 8 August 2016, Jisoo along with Rosé, Lisa, and Jennie debuted as Blackpink with a single album entitled, “Square One.” In South Korea, the single album is a term referring to a physical release of an album with two or three songs. They can compete with full-length albums on Physical Charts, but on Digital Charts they are just referred to as singles.
Square One – Dominated the Charts, Achieved Perfect All Kill for Whistle
Their debut performance didn’t disappoint fans, as they proved to be phenomenal rookies. Two debut songs were included in the single album – “Boombayah” and “Whistle.” Jisoo couldn’t help but be overwhelmed as her group swept eight major daily music charts in South Korea, including Melon, Bugs, Genie, and Mnet Music with the song “Whistle”, giving Blackpink its first Perfect All Kill (PAK) from Instiz Chart. This certification is given to a song that topped all the music charts in real-time, daily and weekly categories all at the same time. The song also gave the girls their first music show win, and they did it in just 13 days after their debut, making it one of the fastest wins in K-Pop history. A music show win in South Korea is an important milestone for K-Pop artists, as it’s considered a testament that their song became the No.1 in the country for a certain week.
The songs became the No.1 and 2 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Chart, and “Whistle” dominated the Gaon Digital Chart (official government-sponsored music chart), peaking at No.1 with a total of 2.5 million units sold, while “Boombayah” peaked at No.7 with over 605,000 units sold.
Square Two – Second #1 on World’s Digital, Another Million Seller (Playing with Fire)
Blackpink released another single album, “Square Two,” and just like the previous one, it has two songs, namely “Playing with Fire” and “Stay” on 1 November 2016. The first one peaked at No.3 on the Gaon Chart with more than 2.5 million units sold, while the second song charted at No. 10 with sales of over 250,000 in South Korea. Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales Chart welcomed both songs at No.1 and No.4 respectively, making “Playing with Fire” Blackpink’s second song to top the chart. They also added two more music show trophies to their collection.
New Artist of the Year
Jisoo and the girls were dubbed as phenomenal rookies, as they won five New Artist of the Year awards from five major award-giving bodies including the Melon Music Awards, Gaon Chart Music Awards, Golden Disc Awards, and Seoul Music Awards. They achieved this feat just five months into their debut.
Music Show MC (2017-18), Released “As If It’s Your Last”
Jisoo proved to be good in most Q & A segments whenever Blackpink made guest appearances on television shows. She charmed everyone with her wit, positive demeanor and welcoming smile, that she was chosen to be one of the MCs of the popular music show “Inkigayo.” Her hosting stint ran from 2017 up to 2018.
Blinks (Blackpink’s fandom name) were disappointed that YG Entertainment released a non‑album single instead of a studio album for the girls. “As If It’s Your Last” was released on 22 June 2017, and topped the Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales Chart the next day. It peaked at No. 3 on the Gaon Digital Chart with total sales of over 2.5 million units, and charted in other countries as well, including Canada, France, Japan and Malaysia.

2018 proved to be the year when Blackpink penetrated the world market, with the release of their first extended play (EP) entitled “Square Up” on 15 June 2018.
The EP entered Billboard 200 peaking at No. 40, and the lead track “Ddu-Du Ddu-du,” also charted at No. 55 on Billboard’s Hot 100. It was certified Platinum by the Korea Music Content Association (KMCA), Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and Silver by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ). Jisoo made history with the girls by being the highest-charting K-Pop girl group in Billboard’s main charts, and was also certified as a Perfect All Kill on Instiz Chart, dominating eight major digital music charts in South Korea. With their global activities they are also now being co-managed by Interscope Records.
The girls released their second EP, “Kill This Love,” on 5 April 2019. It peaked at No. 24 on Billboard 200 Chart and No. 3 on Gaon Album Chart, and was certified as Platinum by KMCA with the title track breaking the record set by “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” (55th), peaking at No. 41 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
With numerous successful releases under their belt, in 2019 Blackpink held their first world tour, “In Your Area,” the highest-grossing concert tour by a K-Pop girl group. They performed 32 shows spread over four continents, Asia (17), Australia (2), Europe (6) and North America (7).
On two separate weekends in the month of April 2019, Blackpink was the first K-Pop female act to perform at Coachella Festival. The girls impressed the audience and critics alike with the performance of their major hits, and trended on Twitter and Instagram with so many great reviews.
As they began penetrating the international music scene successfully, they had collaborations with popular global pop artists such as Dua Lipa with “Kiss and MakeUp” (2018), Lady Gaga with “Sour Candy” (2020), and Selena Gomez with “Ice Cream” (2020). All of these songs entered Billboard’s Hot 100 at 93rd, 33rd, and 13th respectively, making the last song the highest-charting of them.
