The meaning of the K–Pop girl group’s name, Black Pink, is that the color pink is commonly used to portray prettiness, but BlackPink means to say that pretty isn’t everything, and also symbolizes that this is a group that is not only beautiful but talented. Very deep.
The entertainment conglomerate behind it all began promotional preparation for BlackPink back in 2012 (who knew that talent required that long an incubation period?) with the final lineup and name revealed last June, and the group making its debut last August. Their first two releases set records for exploding up the charts, and within weeks of their debut the endorsement deals started rolling in, with Reebok amongst them. All the girls are between 19 and 21 and are Korean (“Rose” was born in New Zealand and raised in Melbourne), except Lisa who is Thai.
