Collection of Blackpink’s Pre-debut Photos and Dances


BLACKPINK is a South Korean girlgroup from YG Entertaiment. They debuted on August 8, 2016 with the song Whistle and Boombayah. Before their debut, YG Entertainment had been giving fans some clues about their identities since 2012. Besides the current BLACKPINK members, YG also gave other trainees a video introduction, such as Euna Kim and Kim Eunbi. In the end, only four trainees, Jennie (leader), Jisoo, Rosé, and Lisa were chosen and debuted as BLACKPINK. Are you curious about their appearances before they debuted? Here’s a collection of BLACKPINK pre-debut photos and videos.


Jennie Kim is the leader of the group. She grew up in New Zealand, and is fluent in speaking English. Here’s her pre-debut photos and videos.
