Calling all BLINKs—the world’s hottest female K-Pop group are bringing their chart-topping songs and incredible style to the 852 this January
BLACKPINK is one of the most successful K-Pop bands of our time. Lisa, Jisoo, Jennie and Rosé make up this unstoppable YG Entertainment powerhouse, who have defied the odds and beaten records at every turn. Their first single ‘SQUARE ONE’ took the K-Pop world by storm when it debuted in 2016. After just five months, they were dubbed New Artist of the Year at the Golden Disc Awards and Seoul Music Awards.
They’ve spent the last three years topping charts around the world. BLACKPINK is the only Korean girl group to ever score multiple entries on the Billboard Hot 100 and they’re also the first to do a world tour with a live band. They’re the fastest girl group to reach 400 million YouTube, and they even collaborated with Dua Lipa on the hit track ‘Kiss and Make Up’.
Basically, these girls are unstoppable, and now’s your chance to catch them live in Hong Kong on 26 January, 2019. Don’t forget to dress the part! A tee-shirt and jeans just won’t cut it.
If you’re unsure what to wear to a K-Pop concert, we’ve got you covered, with a look back at some of BLACKPINK’s most iconic looks.
Dark and Mysterious
BLACKPINK proves that an all-black ensemble is always a good idea. But if you’re going to rock the monochrome, do as the girls do and play with textures and hemlines. If you’re going for a black leather miniskirt, pair it with a fun lace top. Or channel your inner athlete in loose-fitting jeans and a sports bra. For a romantic touch, add lace gloves or sparkly accents to a LBD and you’ll fit right into the ultra-stylish K-Pop crowd.
Pink and Playful
You can’t have BLACKPINK without a little pink! Don’t be afraid of standing out from the crowd in a bright bold colour, like these gorgeous shades of pink the girls rocked. A thick, studded belt adds a bit of an edge to a suit jacket, but if that’s too hot we love a good t-shirt dress! Pair it with a high pony and some killer boots and you’ll feel like the K-Pop queen you were born to be.
A DDU-DU DDU-DU-Inspired Look
If a monochrome wardrobe isn’t in the cards, look no further than the ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU‘ music video. Not only is it the most-viewed Korean music video in 24 hours, it’s also the highest-charting hit by a K-Pop girl group ever. And of course, the outfits are incredible. Matching short-shorts and over-the-knee boots? Yes please! White go-go boots with fishnets and white shorts? Double yes! Sequin playsuit with combat boots? Sign us up! You can’t go wrong if you take a page from their DDU-DU DDU-DU stylebook.
School Girl Style
Another video that gives us all the fashion-feels we can handle is ‘As If It’s Your Last‘. BLACKPINK rocks the school girl look better than anyone we know (sorry Britney!) and they make us want to give a pleated skirt and tie a spin. It almost makes us want to go back to class….almost. Pair the super-short skirts with long socks and combat boots for a naughty-and-nice vibe.
BLACKPINK are playing at the AsiaWorld-Expo Arena, and tickets are on sale now, starting at just HK$698. But don’t wait, they’re almost sold out!
