BLACKPINK have taken the world by storm with their songs breaking records and more.
You may be wondering about the individual members themselves – if you want to learn more about Lisa, read on.
Who is BlackPink member Lisa?
Pranpriya Manobal was born on March 27, 1997 in Buriram, Thailand.
On the advice of a fortune teller, she changed her name to Lalisa, meaning “the promised one.”
She was raised by her Thai mother, Chitthip, and her Swiss stepfather, chef Marco Brüschweiler.
At the age of four she began taking dance lessons and taking part in competitions. She later joined the dance group We Zaa Cool alongside BamBam of the K-pop band Got7.
The crew took part in the LG Entertainment Million Dream Sanan World competition broadcast on Channel 9 and won the Special Team Award.
Lisa has received many awards throughout her career:
- Seven Guinness World Records
- Mnet Asian Music Award
- Gaon Chart Music Awards
- MTV Video Music Award (first ever won by a K-pop soloist)
- MTV Europe Music Award (the first ever won by a K-pop soloist)
She is also the most followed K-pop artist on Instagram.
Who are BlackPink?
BlackPink is a South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment and consists of four female singers: Jisoo, Jennie, Rose and Lisa.
BlackPink’s debut album, The Album, featured the songs Whistle and Boombayah, which were the group’s first number-one entries on South Korea’s Gaon Digital Chart and US Billboard World Digital Song Sales Chart.
The group’s second album, Born Pink, peaked at number one on the Billboard 200 and was the best-selling album by a female artist in South Korea of all time, selling more than 2 million copies.
It also set two Guinness World Records for being the first album by a Korean girl group to top both the Billboard 200 and the UK Albums Chart.
Who was Lisa dating?
In August 2023, Lisa and Tag Heuer CEO Frederic Arnault sparked rumors that they were dating.
The rumors began to simmer when the two were spotted having lunch together in Paris, and intensified when fans speculated they were on holiday together in Greece.
Lisa published some photos from her trip to Greece, and Frederic’s sister-in-law, Geraldine Guyot, also published photos from a trip around the same time.
The pair were later spotted together in Los Angeles at a private airport, but neither has provided confirmation of their relationship.
What are Lisa’s greatest songs?
She made her solo debut in September 2023 with her album Lalisa, which became the first album by a K-pop soloist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify.
She was the first artist to sell 736,000 copies of an album in South Korea within the first week.
The lead single, also called Lalisa, racked up 73.6 million views on YouTube in 24 hours.
