Meanwhile, about BLACKPINK, the news site wrote, “Jisoo, Lisa, Jennie, and Rosé have long ruled K-pop as the ‘Lovesick Girls’, but with ‘Born Pink’, they blow up into rock queens”. ‘Born Pink’ is the most undeniable music BLACKPINK have ever made — so far”, they described.
Finally, Rolling Stone had a lot of praise for NewJeans, saying, “There’s no question that Minji, Hanni, Danielle, Haerin, and Hyein made a splash this year with their first EP…NewJeans are part of the latest generation of K-pop groups, and with New Jeans, they have a strong foundation to evolve and grow from. It’s just a bite-size EP, but it’s left us wanting a lot more.”
