Despite the criticisms and racism issues Blackpink's Lisa is facing, fans have to admit that she is one of today's most famous K-pop artists. Thanks to her group's immense popularity, the 23-year-old star is now gaining traction in both the music scene and fashion world.
Lisa has dominated a lot of K-pop lists, from the most popular foreign K-pop idols to the most beautiful to top Instagram star, and more. As she continuously dominates the entertainment industry, here is what you need to know more about this fan-favorite Blackpink member.
The No. 1 Foreign K-Pop Idol For More Than Half A Decade
In case you don't know, Lisa has been the number one foreign K-pop idol since 2016 via Koreaboo. She has shown great popularity and interest throughout the years that never fade until today.
Thanks to her hard work and determination, she has been a massive part of this music genre though she grew up in Thailand. She has made a huge name in South Korea that she surpasses the Taiwanese member of Twice, Tzuyu, for three consecutive times, from 2016 to 2018.
She also outshines the Japanese singer and dancer Momo from Twice in 2019 and Momoland's Korean-American member, Nancy in 2020. For this year, Lisa puts GOT7's Hong Kong rapper, Jackson.
An Excellent Blackpink Trainee
Long before Lisa debuted as an official Blackpink member, she already excelled as a trainee. The group members revealed she "aced everything" when they were just training to be K-pop idols, helping them reach where they were today.
However, the Thai rapper herself never denied that she also faced a lot of difficulties and struggles. The moment she left her country and stepped into South Korea, she felt overwhelmed and homesick.
Thankfully, she got Jisoo, Jennie, and Rosé's help and made her stay more endurable. Hard works pay off, as they say, as she has finally reached the top after Blackpink debuted.

It can't be denied that Lisa is also making a name in the fashion world. A lot of women have been following her style. Her outfits quickly become a trend, and she can pull off anything she wears.
So, it is no surprise that she has become one of the 14 guest juries at the 2021 ANDAM Fashion Award. She will be headlining the event, along with the likes of the Chinese singer Chris Lee, fashion designers Kerby Jean-Raymond and Phoebe Philip, French singer and actress Lou Doillon, and more, per Soompi.
Evidently, Lisa is one incredible talent that everyone should watch out for.
