Jisoo's BiographyJisoo is a performer from South Korea, a member of the K-pop group Blackpink, a model, songwriter, TV presenter, and actress, one of the most popular Korean female idols. In 2022, the British publication Nubia Magazine awarded the girl - as a result of a five-month readers' vote - the status of the most beautiful woman in the world.
Childhood and FamilyKim Ji-soo, better known by her personal brand name, Jisoo, was born on January 3, 1995, in the picturesque and very musical city of Gunpo. She grew up with her older brother Jung-hoon and sister Ji-yoon.
Her parents, Ha-Joon and Ji-Yoo Kim, were already quite affluent. There were many rumors about what Jisoo's parents did, but none of them were ever confirmed. Fans hypothesized that the singer's father held a high position at the popular music channel Mnet. Jisoo never posted photos of her mother, and she never accompanied her daughter to public events.
In 2011, the bright young girl joined YG Entertainment. However, she initially had to intern and appear in commercials, as well as in videos of more popular artists. During this period, Jisoo was given a symbolic role in the series "The Producers". However, her grand success was still far off, and the budding star was waiting for her time to shine.
Early StepsTrue success came to the performer in 2016 when she became a member of Blackpink. The all-female group, consisting of four members, skyrocketed to stardom at an incredible speed.
However, Jisoo's main activity was singing, so the group didn't delay the release of new songs, and that same year they released a mini-album called Square Two. It also contained only two songs - Playing with Fire and Stay. "Playing with Fire" – the translation of the first – entered the international music charts and reached Canada.
That same year, Jisoo and her group presented a new song called As If It’s Your Last. The music video for this song garnered 10 million views in less than a day, marking a tremendous success. The song topped the iTunes charts, and the group performed shows in several cities in Japan. To please their fans in the Land of the Rising Sun, the group released a mini-album in Japanese. The overwhelming success of As If It’s Your Last led to the song being used in an episode of the film "Justice League."
Career RisingThe group's growing popularity led to the release of the reality show Blackpink House in January 2018. This program showcased the daily lives of the four members of the band: Lisa, Rosé, Jennie, and, of course, Jisoo. Concurrently, Jisoo decided not to renew her contract as the host of Inkigayo.
Blackpink House was a huge gift for the fans, as it allowed them to see their idols from a new perspective. Moreover, the show featured new songs that were later compiled into a mini-album titled Square Up. The songs Forever Young and Ddu-Du Ddu-Du, which became the title track, were particularly loved by the viewers. The album was also very successful, and the group embarked on a tour to Japan.
Jisoo's Personal LifeKorean performers seldom share detailed information about their relationships with the public, and Jisoo is no exception. The producers of many K-pop groups are not overly fond of their charges starting romances, believing that it will interfere with their careers and lessen public interest.
Nevertheless, in the summer of 2023, information leaked to the press that Jisoo was dating actor Ahn Bo-Hyun. Their romance was confirmed by both agencies: YG Entertainment (Jisoo's representatives) and FN Entertainment (which Ahn Bo-Hyun collaborates with). Fans were thrilled, closely watching their romance both in Korea and beyond, but by October of the same year, it was announced that the couple had split.
Jisoo NowCurrently, the celebrity's music and acting career is thriving. In 2023, she was seen in the thriller "Dr. Cheon and Lost Talisman." The film tells the story of a professor performing staged exorcism rituals until he encounters real paranormal forces.
... I was shocked. Since it was a minor role, I thought they would cast a secondary actress. But while watching, I thought, 'Can a secondary actress be this beautiful?'In early 2023, Jisoo announced that she had opened a Youtube channel and promised to post travel vlogs. The channel gained over a million subscribers in just a few hours and that was just the beginning. Since then, the star has posted videos about her adventures in Barcelona, New York, and also shared footage from concerts and her time spent with her bandmates. In one of the videos, Jisoo also announced the release of her solo album, which was released in March 2023 titled "Me", garnering over 1.3 million pre-orders.
