BLACKPINK’s recipe of success in Kpop – the “4Q”

With individual gifts and members’ multi-talents, BLACKPINK rises to become a powerful group in Kpop. 

After more than one day of release, up to 12 a.m. of August 21st, BLACKPINK’s “PINK VENOM” MV has reached 134 million views on YouTube, standing at no.1 Trending on after several hours of its drop. 

No one could deny the extent of investment, the grand scale of the MV and the professionalism in “PINK VENOM”. Fans are taking the music video to social media to share and express and enjoy the MV with a never-seen-before heat. 


It is safe to say that BLACKPINK mastered the principles of Kpop and refined the model of role distribution. Each member is in charge of their separate roles while still working seamlessly together. They bring this simple division of roles in Kpop to a new height with their “4Q”.
