“BLACKPINK are one of the most popular artists to ever come out of South Korea,” it said in a separate feature story released the same day. “Their massive success is part of the Korean Wave, which refers loosely to the global popularity of South Korea’s cultural industry.”
It also said the group’s music projects are “an explosive, larger-than-life force that’s both invigorating and addictive. … They make serious bangers, mixing powerful hip-hop beats with house, EDM (electronic dance music) and more.” (Yonhap)/DC
