BLACKPINK debuted in 2016 under YG Entertainment. While they have yet to reach their seventh year in the K-Pop industry, the quartet has already achieved massive successes in the world of music.
Many high-profile personalities even deem them as one of today's top girl groups in the world. Aside from being successful and famous as a group, each of the members is, also, popular on their own.
It is not surprising why numerous individuals from various industries follow and admire the K-Pop idols. Pinkvilla recently released some of the names of celebrities who are vocal fans of Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa.
In the music industry, the list includes Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, and Dua Lipa. While the two female artists have shown their support by posting pictures with BLACKPINK on social media, the One Direction member watched one of the group's live performances in Los Angeles.
The "Break My Heart" singer, also, collaborated with the four idols in 2018 on "Kiss and Make Up." The other artists who worked with the "Lovesick Girls" singers, as well, include Lady Gaga for "Sour Candy" and Selena Gomez for "Ice Cream."
Also on the list are actors and actresses, as well as models and television personalities. The same outlet said that these include Will Smith, James Corden, Kendall Jenner, and Hailey Bieber.
Billboard previously released a similar report, as well, naming the other celebrities who are fans of BLACKPINK. As noted, the music industry has several BLINKs, including Diplo, Halsey, Pharrell, DJ Snake, LANY, Zedd, Benny Blanco, Drake, Steve Aoki, and Charli XCX. Outside the music scene, the publication said that Todrick Hall and Jaden Smith are, also, big supporters of the K-Pop group.
Meanwhile, South China Morning Post previously said that the members of BLACKPINK are the leading idols with the highest number of followers on Instagram. It is not, reportedly, surprising considering their overall success and popularity inside and outside South Korea.
Among the four members, though, Lisa tops the list with her 51.8 million followers, as of the time of writing. Jennie comes next to the group's rapper with a total following of 44.8 million.
Rose and Jisoo take the third and fourth spots with their 40.4 and 40.3 million followers, respectively. Despite being in the last two places, though, they are still above all other K-Pop idols outside BLACKPINK.
In the top ten, the next placers are some of the members of EXO. Chanyeol, Sehun, and Baekhyun take the fifth, sixth, and seventh places with their 22.7, 21.2, and 20 million followers, respectively.
