BLACKPINK may be one of the biggest groups on the planet right now, but they were also once rookies.
Their reaction to their debut stage shows their sincerity. After over half a decade of training, BLACKPINK debuted on August 14, 2016 in Inkigayo.
They performed “BOOMBAYAH” and “WHISTLE” to a live audience of BLINKs.
The moment they got off the stage after “BOOMBAYAH”…
…they couldn’t hold back their tears.
Rosé in particular, who is known as one of the softest members, was emotional right away.
The staff gave them tissues and congratulated them for finally debuting.
The members naturally gravitated towards each other and gave a big team hug.
Now they have broken numerous records with “How You Like That” and are individually popular as well!
They’ve come so far! If you haven’t seen it yet, check out their debut stage below.
