L-R: Jimmy Kimmel and Jisoo

Jimmy Kimmel is under fire for testing Jisoo's English!

The 25-year-old Korean singer, Kim Ji-soo is one of the four members of K-pop band Blackpink. She is known for her voice, her style and the fact that she doesn’t talk much during interviews. Read below to find out what made her fans call out Jimmy Kimmel after her appearance at his talk show!  

  • YG Entertainment recruited the girls to form Blackpink by hosting worldwide tryouts in 2016.
  • Jisoo was born on  January 3, 1995.
  • She was chosen to be Dior’s beauty ambassador in 2019.

Blackpink has made a name for themselves by showcasing their musical talent. With fans all across the globe, it's hard to address the girls bizarrely and get away with it. In the era of social media, people will talk about it.

Rosé, Jisoo, Lisa, and Jennie sat down for an interview with US late-night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel for the first time. The conversation started off with Jimmy attempting to speak Korean, but after saying one line he switched to English. We’d recommend him to spend some more time learning the language! 

The talks were going great as the girls answered questions about their lives and the band. However, what urged people to speak out against the host is when he addressed Jisoo. The Korean singer, who isn’t as fluent in English as her band members, was asked what her favorite word in the language. 

I mean we might not know about anything about hosting interviews, but asking such question on national television seem like something you shouldn’t do. Fans expressed their opinions on social media, saying that Asians are usually complimented for speaking English during interviews, why is that? Honestly we have the same question. 

Jisoo responded with ‘It's a pity’ to the question and yes girl, we do agree that such conversation starters are disappointing. Blinks, watch the video below and tell us what you think about Blackpink’s interview with Jimmy Kimmel?
