Some were born rich. Some were born with nothing. Blackpink member Jennie happens to be among those born into well-to-do households. Her rich background has, however, not stopped her from making her own money. As a result, she’s rich in her own right.

After six years with YG Entertainment, On June 1, 2016, Jennie became the first member of Blackpink to be revealed to the public. She has remained with the group since, entertaining the world with her superb vocals.
Interestingly, besides being the first member of the Blackpink group unveiled to the public, she’s also the first to go solo, with a single appropriately titled “Solo.” Released just two years after she was officially unveiled in 2018, the song was a hit and had over 300 million streams on Spotify.
The song also had over 800 Youtube views, a milestone as she’s the first Korean female soloist to reach to snap that record.

“I listen to music when I’m going through a hard time or don’t want to think about anything — I hope our music can have the same effect on many others.”
The above is one position Jisoo has held for a while. It is not surprising, then, that she should give her all always when it comes to music. Her commitment stands her out. But then anyone who has been following the career trajectory of the singer wouldn’t be surprised.
For one who grew up in Gunpo, a relatively small city in Korea, Jisoo has done pretty well for herself. Right now, not only is she globally famous, but she’s also one of the most followed Korean musicians.
Of course, it didn’t start that way. From when she was much younger, Jisoo had a great interest in the world of music and nursed that interest by not only singing but by listening to the songs of other musicians songs.
Interestingly, despite her fame, she doesn’t feel like a world star. She still has her old high school friends with whom she rolls. You’ll most likely find her going to see a movie with her friends who aren’t even famous. Some are surprised she still acts “ordinary” despite being globally renowned.
But that’s Jisoo for you – always down to earth and with a welcoming smile. Not surprisingly, she’s also one of the most-loved Korean singers.
