Blinks aren't the only ones who continue to be impressed by Jisoo's talent. The BLACKPINK member can wow any K-Pop fan with her vocals, dance moves, and acting skills. Not to mention her extremely visually appealing Instagram page, but more on that in a little bit. So, who is BLACKPINK's Jisoo? Here's everything to know about the K-Pop queen.
BLACKPINK — which is also made up of Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé — has no shortage of talent, but Jisoo brings her own unique flair, which constantly has fans talking.

In fact, Jisoo fans are so dedicated to her that they've even taken to social media in the past to defend her, like after some haters slammed her for not speaking much during a video with The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in February 2019. "Jisoo understands english but isn’t confident yet to speak. it’s okay. the girl is a perfectionist. time will come. everyone who dragged her down isn’t welcome. bye," one fan tweeted at the time.
