“International sister” is the exact title for this female idol.
In Kpop, there are many foreign idols who were born and raised abroad and then went to Korea to pursue their dreams. However, at the level of “global citizen” like this female idol, it is really rare.
This “global citizen” female idol is Lisa (BLACKPINK). Indeed, few people can have as many activities in Korean, Chinese, and French showbiz as her. The name “international sister” is completely correct for Lisa, when the youngest member of BLACKPINK was born in Thailand, went to Korea to be an idol, hosted a Chinese reality show, and recently became a judge for the French fashion award.
Lisa was born in 1997 in Bangkok, Thailand and her full name is Lalisa Manoban. At first glance, her Western face and name make many people think that Lisa is a hybrid. But in fact, the female idol is 100% Thai. From a young age, Lisa has shown her talent in singing and dancing, and this is the premise for the little girl to come to the second country in her life – Korea.
In 2010, Lisa participated in the audition for YG Entertainment in Thailand. With a burning ambition and outstanding performance, Lisa overcame 4000 other contestants to get the chance to become a trainee of one of the biggest entertainment companies in Korea. At the age of 14, Lisa alone flew thousands of kilometers to South Korea and started her dream journey to become a star. After 5 years of hard training and many hardships, Lisa finally debuted with BLACKPINK and succeeded as a Kpop star.
Despite being a famous global star, until 2020, Lisa has continued her journey in another country, China. Despite her very young age, Lisa has successfully taken the role of a coach in the show “Youth with You 2”, with Cai Xukun, Jony J, and Ella. The cute and strict image of “coach Lisa” has helped her attract more fans in this country.
Lisa also continues to participate as the host of Youth with You 3, which will be shown soon. The female idol’s promotional photos were also released and immediately became a global hot topic because she was so beautiful, attractive and sexy, thoroughly showing off her beautiful face and long legs that made people excited.
And most recently, Lisa has proven that “international sister” is completely not only a title. On February 16, WWD reported a shock to the public: Lisa will be one of the members on the supervisory board, along with designers, CEOs, creative directors, photographers and other stars to choose the winner of the ANDAM Fashion Award 2021. This is a prestigious French fashion award, held for more than 30 years to seek new talents and help them have a chance to come to the prestigious Paris Fashion Week.
Lisa’s global, impressive profile surprised the public. Indeed, being beautiful, talented, and a famous fashion icon, fluent in many languages, it is not too difficult to understand when Lisa is loved all over the world. This year is expected to be a busy year for the YG female idol, and maybe, “international sister” will also add several other countries to her impressive profile.
