Lisa, being the youngest member, shared that without her three older members, BLACKPINK would be very different.

“Can’t live without these girls 🌈 Happy BLACKPINK 6th year anniversary💗 This year will be another BIG year for us✨ Love u,” she added.

Jisoo, who debuted as an actress in December last year with the Korean drama Snowdrop, shared various photos of them together both on stage and behind the scenes. Lisa, Jennie, and Rosé heavily relied on her being the oldest member.

“Happy 6th anniversary my beloved BLACKPINK forever,” she said in Korean.

Meanwhile, their main vocalist, Rosè, penned a lengthy message for all of them including their fans.

The group spent years of training in preparation for their debut.

“We’ve been practicing together for a long time and we’ve been working together for 6 years and we’ve learned a lot more. Thank you so much for being my member and family.”

“I am endlessly grateful to BLINKs who always support us and stand by our side. I am so grateful for each and every precious memory that BLACKPINK and BLINKs have made over the past 6 years,” Rosé shared.

Meanwhile, YG Entertainment announced the release date of their latest single, Pink Venom, the same day as their anniversary.

The pre-release single will drop on August 19 at 1PM KST. This comes before their much-awaited album drop and world tour all happening this year.
