Get To Know BLACKPINK Lisa Family
Just after debuting with BLACKPINK in 2016, Lisa’s exotic appearance instantly caught the fans’ and public’s attention and made them wonder whether Lisa is a mixed girl group member or not. Well, we can assure you, dear readers, that Lisa’s parents are originally Thai citizens, which certainly makes Lisa a Thai too. However, we found an interesting fact that Lisa’s parents have divorced, and Lisa’s mother remarried to a foreigner. Thus, Lisa has a step-father.
Lisa’s step-father is Marco Bruschweiler, a chef whose reputation is notable as a Global Master Chef of the World Chef. Currently, Marco Bruschweiler is running a culinary school in Bangkok, specializing in Thai cuisine and also organizing Thai, Vegetarian, and Swiss food festivals worldwide. In addition, he is often invited to national and international culinary competitions in Bangkok and the greater Asian region.
On the fourth episode of BLACKPINK HOUSE, Lisa’s parents made a surprise visit, which made Lisa excited and getting teary. Lisa ran to kiss her step-father’s cheeks and hugged her mother tightly. Aww, how sweet!
Did BLACKPINK Lisa Do Plastic Surgery?
Just like most of K-pop idol group members, BLACKPINK’s Lisa is also accused of doing changes to her facial features because she looksdifferent compared to the time before she debuted with BLACKPINK. Well, to prove whether this allegation is true or not, let’s check Lisa’s predebut pictures first.
Now, let’s see Lisa’s appearance in the current time.
After examining Lisa’s predebut and present time photos, we can see that Lisa’s skin tone noticeably got whiter. As for the plastic surgery, some people think that Lisa obviously has done it for her nose. In the past it was short and bulbous, which is not flattering to look at. After Lisa restructured it, her nose looks slimmer and balanced to the rest of her face. However, the fans debunked the plastic surgery accusation towards Lisa by comparing her past and present pictures below.
As you can see, Lisa’s nose still looks kind of short when she laughs so perhaps it is only the matter of angle which makes her nose looks different. On the other hand, as for her eyes, we think that Lisa changed their shape. Her big eyes, which became the facial feature that stands out the most on her face, are lengthened horizontally a little bit. Well, we still love Lisa regardless of what she did to make herself prettier, don’t you agree, dear readers?
