Blackpink is one of the most famous and popular K-pop groups of all time, and they are one of the reasons why K-pop started to catch on in a larger way internationally during the third generation. YG Entertainment and music producer Teddy simply struck lightning with the group’s chic visuals and modern sound. Blackpink debuted on August 8, 2016 with the single album Square One and the dual-singles “Whistle” and “Boombayah,” and the members have gone on to achieve tremendous success both as a group and individually since. If you are wondering how old the individual members of Blackpink are, here is the birthday and age for Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa.
How Old Explained: Age and Birthday for Each of the Blackpink Members
- Jisoo is 28 years old and was born on January 3, 1995.
- Jennie is 27 years old and was born on January 16, 1996.
- Rosé is 26 years old and was born on February 11, 1997.
- Lisa is 26 years old and was born on March 27, 1997.
That means that, at the time Blackpink debuted as a group in 2016, there ages were as follows: Jisoo was 21, Jennie was 20, Rosé was 19, and Lisa was 19. Lisa is the maknae (“youngest person in the group”), though debuting as the maknae at age 19 is actually a bit unusual, in that companies often like to debut a group at as young an age as possible. One need look no further than YG’s BabyMonster.
Meanwhile, Jisoo is the oldest member of Blackpink, but she is not the leader of the group because Blackpink actually has no leader. Having no group leader is uncommon in K-pop, but it does happen, with prominent examples including KARD and NewJeans. Incidentally, out of the four Blackpink members, three of them speak fluent English, even though only one of them, Rosé, is a native English speaker. Meanwhile, it would appear that Rosé is also the only Blackpink member with an extroverted MBTI.
