There is no doubt in the fact that all the Blackpink girls are extremely hardworking and goal oriented. Jisoo is no less. She identified a weakness when she entered the US music industry and has made sure that she becomes adept at understanding and communicating in English. Her band mate, Jennie, has been very generous at helping her learn the new language. The bond between the K-pop idols is surely exemplary.
Jisoo revealed her name when she knew she had perfected the language. ‘Okay, it’s time’ she said. The unique name she selected was ‘Jisoo Turtle Rabbit Kim’.
