She is preparing for her comeback to the stage. The member of BLACKPINK, and Dior ambassador, confessed to a prestigious magazine and recalled passages from her childhood.
The group BLACKPINK has been the protagonist of the recent special that Rolling Stone magazine launched, a production that divided its edition in exclusive interviews with each of its members, Lisa, Jennie, Rosé and Jisoo. The latter confessed to journalist Haeryun Kang, to whom she told details of her childhood, her relationship with her parents, her solo career and other unknown details of her life.
Kim Ji-soo, born on January 3, 1995, took a trip to the past to give curious facts about her non-public life. The K-pop artist specified that it never crossed her mind to become a celebrity, let alone having the popularity she got after being part of this YG Entertainment project following her debut in 2016.
She considers herself a woman who likes to travel and enjoy her solitude. “I talk about moving abroad all the time. I’ve always been a really free soul since my school days. If people asked me back then, “What are you going to do with your life?” Well, if I can’t get a proper job, I’ll get part-time jobs.”
“I’ve always admired people who have their dreams clear, who go down a single path.”
On his relationship with his parents, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo recalls his time as a student, when his parents respected his decision not to go to school on days when he was not in the mood. This stance of his parents was not well regarded by teachers, who did not hesitate to question him about what he would do with his life.
On these days off, he shares more with them because they live in the same building. He enjoys their company very much, as well as getting together for lunches or dinners.

HER FACET AS A SOLOIST
Being the only member who has not yet debuted as a solo artist, the Korean performer indicates that she is still not quite sure about launching her solo career, constantly wondering what genre of music she would choose, what she could do and what she would choose.
About the exposure they have worldwide, she differs from the rest of her peers who enjoy and know how to deal with fame. When she stands on stage she only thinks about not making a mistake; performing can be a test and not something genuine to have fun.

HER MENTAL HEALTH
Jisoo details that the worst time she goes through during a tour is when the silence comes and she can’t receive the energy from the ‘Blinks’. She assures that she feels a bit depressed when that happens. She considers her fans as friends with whom she can have fun and be fully honest.
Her mood has been altered in recent days because she hasn’t slept well due to an injury she recently suffered, a fact that has led her to constantly go to the hospital. “My leg hurts, I hit a door very hard. It’s not broken or fractured, but it’s been hurting for the last month.”
Will this affect BLACKPINK’s comeback? He is receiving medical attention, and pointed out that they are currently recording for their next album, which means that he is not yet physically exerting himself to learn the choreography.
