BLACKPINK members radiated charm and star potential early on while still embracing the normal aspects of younger years.
The rare pre-debut photos from
BLACKPINK’s trainee era are always a curiosity to the public. After 6 years since 4 members were introduced to K-pop under the name BLACKPINK and swept through the world with unique styles, BLINKs are reminiscing the group’s earlier days. Their present stands in contrast to this distanced past, showing how far BLACKPINK has come. Jennie
Before her debut, Jennie already showcased her star potential. Jennie sparked rare confidence and command from a trainee. She did not look less pretty without makeup and was even more sweet and adorable.
One can easily sense the overwhelming aura of a celebrity potential in Jennie. With immaculate beauty, stable techniques and confident attitude, Jennie is truly the ace of the group.
Her “everyday” image as a trainee was strangely sweet and innocent. Her natural and bare-faced look comes as a reminiscence for fans.
She already had a golden proportion and long legs since the old days. Lisa
Lisa captured attention for her splendid proportion and fitness among the trainees of her period in YG Entertainment. Her sense of fashion was also a plus point in helping her achieve high evaluation scores from the company. While pixelated and low in quality, this old photo still cannot overshadow Lisa’s fitness and long legs.
Lisa radiated an “idol aura” even as a trainee. Her closeup grainy picture of her face still showed the “high-quality” visual of the Thai beauty.
Her dear smile and cute expression steal the hearts of fans. Lisa and Sorn are both Thai. They kept a close relationship from pre-debut until now, when both debuted and became idols. Jisoo
Before her debut, Jisoo was favored for her distinctly Korean visuals. She did commercial deals early on and appeared in the music videos of other artists such as Epik High, Suhyun (AKMU). She also had a cameo in the Korean drama “The Producers”. Her darling and pure appearance could still shine in whichever lighting condition. In a blurry, dimly lit photo Jisoo still looked sharp and beautiful.

A closer look at Jisoo shows her golden-ratio face. The idol did not need any makeup techniques or auto-tune camera apps, she was still stunning.
Her pre-debut beauty was at the top of K-pop. Jisoo’s potential perhaps was discovered for a long time.

This was the photo of a legendary formation that would be BLACKPINK of later time. The four trainees looked sharp and captivating in their pre-debut era.
Jisoo and Rosé were another goofy pair which showcased the down-to-earth aspect of the future BLACKPINK members.
Before their global stardom, BLACKPINK were cute and playful young girls in everyday life.
