The reasons why Jisoo’s talent deserves to be recognized

Once labeled as “a talentless visual”, Jisoo has always tried her best to improve herself.

BLACKPINK‘s rapidly increasing reputation also unintentionally creates pressure on the members. Jisoo must be the one who has to make the greatest effort to assert herself in this case. Since her debut, the female idol has been labelled as “a talentless visual”. After years of trying, Jisoo‘s accomplishment is truly deserving of the audience’s praise.

On January 3, Jisoo will officially turn 27. At this time, BLACKPINK‘s eldest member has achieved much success and is making fans proud.

Compared to other idols, Jisoo has a rather late starting point. She started becoming a YG Entertainment trainee in 2011 after an audition.  Before that, she had never been exposed to dancing and singing professionally.  Therefore, in the 5 years before her debut, she had to make great efforts to catch up with other trainees.

When she was a trainee, she also starred in some MVs or dramas as cameos.

During that time, Jisoo did not stop practicing, she hardly had time to visit her family. The female idol once confessed, “I rarely go home and have to practice on weekends, so my parents are quite sad and worried. But they aren’t sentimental, and they know what I have to do, so they advised me to be strong and try to do it.”

Finally, Jisoo‘s efforts also paid off, in 2016 she officially debuted with the girl group BLACKPINK.  However, right from the beginning, the female idol has met with mixed public opinion.  At that time, she attracted attention because of her beautiful appearance, but was also criticized for being less talented than the other members.  There was even an opinion that Jisoo had no role in the group.

Indeed, in terms of dancing and singing skills, Jisoo was not as good as Lisa, Rosé or Jennie.  However, ignoring those criticisms, she has constantly tried to improve herself.  It can be seen that her singing, dancing and stage performance skills are gradually becoming more skillful and flexible.

Recently, Jisoo once again proved her ability by playing the female lead role in the drama “Snowdrop.” For an idol first time debuting as an actress, she did not show any awkwardness.  In each scene, the female idol always perfectly transforms into her character and is not even afraid to leave her face bare when filming.

Jisoo is not afraid to overcome her own fear to portray her role well. The most typical example worth mentioning is the quite dangerous scene where she has to climb a wall. Instead of using a stunt double, she and the male lead Jung Hae In performed it themselves. In the past, the female idol was originally afraid of heights.

The facts prove that Jisoo‘s efforts are one of the reasons for the success of BLACKPINK.  However, she has never been arrogant about her ability, above all she is always very proud of her members, “When working in a group, I realize that everyone has their own position and role, everyone has a chance to shine. Synergy is born like that, that perception changes my perspective. When each person stands in the right place, amazing things can happen.”
