K-pop quartet BLACKPINK performed and shared its stories on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” becoming the first K-pop girl group to appear on the U.S. late-night show.
The band, which Kimmel introduced as “the most popular all-female group in the vast realm of music known as K-pop” joined the show through video chat on Tuesday (U.S. time).
BLACKPINK’s four members ― Jisoo, Jennie, Rose and Lisa ― talked about their successful gig at the Coachella music festival last year and behind-the-scene episodes from the making of their first full-length album released earlier this month, according to the band’s agency.
The band gave a performance of their latest hit “Lovesick Girls” following the interview.
