In the New Year, there are many stars holding this zodiac in Kbiz such as Song Joong Ki, Lee Kwang Soo and a series of famous idols born in 1997. Among them, the female idol born in 1997 is the most famous today. none other than Lisa ( BLACKPINK ). Behind the success at a very young age, praise and praise are a long journey to chase dreams, with happy smiles but also many tears.
A little girl with a passionate heart and difficult dream pursuit journey
Lisa’s full name is Lalisa Manoban, born in 1997 in Thailand. Her name means “someone who will receive praise and praise” and it seems completely true of female idol. From an early age, Lisa showed a strong passion for theater, music and dancing. The little girl always aspires to perform on stage, becoming a professional artist.
10-year-old Lalisa Manoban participated in a series of competitions, large and small, is a “piece” of dance group We Zaa Cool, where she met close friend BamBam – male idol of the Asian boy group GOT7. . The turning point in Lisa’s life was in 2010, when YG Entertainment held a selection of trainees in Thailand. This is the door that opens up Lisa’s journey to become a global star.
Young Lisa participated in many dance competitions and was friends with BamBam (GOT7).
With a burning ambition and outstanding performance, Lisa overcame 4000 other contestants to get the chance to become a trainee of the Korean entertainment giant. At the age of 14, Lisa alone flies thousands of kilometers, to a foreign country and begins her journey to fulfill her dream of becoming a star – a journey of difficulty, uncertainty, uncertainty about the future.
How many people dare to leave their parents’ arms at such a young age, to a foreign country thousands of kilometers away, without the same voice? Lisa that day at the age of 14 was extremely brave, chasing her dream alone with the belief that everything would be all right.
5 years of practice is a very memorable time for Lisa. Life as a Korean trainee has been difficult, with a foreign trainee, it has been added many times. From a girl who only knew greeting in Korean, Lisa had to adapt and learn Korean quickly. The female idol once revealed that her company is very strict to improve her Korean: “In the company, no one is allowed to speak English to me”.
Can not imagine how the 14-year-old Lisa went through the difficulties and loneliness without using her mother tongue, not understanding what the people around her said. The differences of geography, culture, language … did not beat Lisa, when she brought in her burning enthusiasm.
Having a background in choreography and performance, it is never easy to win a debut at YG. 5 years of practice in Korea is 5 years Lisa was confined in the practice room, diligently practicing singing, dancing, and rapping. No friends, relatives, all just practice and practice, facing the harsh monthly tests. It is no exaggeration to say that Lisa had to try a lot more than others. Lisa once recalled this time: “5 years was really long. Sometimes I secretly cried while lying in bed because I was too homesick, but I still did not give up”. How much effort pays off in the end. After a long cherished period, YG released BLACKPINK, a new 4-member girl group in August 2016. Including Lisa – the first foreign female idol under this “big man”.

Success and tears have to trade
BLACKPINK’s path to success is not full of roses, but on which there are many rocky rocks. From being criticized by netizens as “2NE1 copies”, until now, the girls have opened a new empire, becoming not only the number 1 girl group in Kpop but also the number 1 in the world. Referring to BLACKPINK, it will refer to vibrant music, attractive performance style, attractive beauty and trendy looks, is a style icon.
Along with the success of BLACKPINK, Lisa has also become a global star, the famous “international sister”. Although she is Thai, Lisa has surpassed many other Korean names, becoming the artist with the most followers on Instagram. Lisa is especially popular in the international market, the female idol’s fancam always attracts great views, ranks top trending every time there is a new move on social networks.
Not only successful in the music field, Lisa is also extremely expensive advertising shows and is the “muse” of the famous fashion house Celine. Despite her very young age, Lisa has successfully assumed the role of a coach in the program Thanh Xuan Have Friends 2 , alongside Thai Tu Khone, Jony J and Ella. The lovely and conscientious “Greek” image has attracted millions more fans from the billion-dollar country.
But behind these successes, Lisa has suffered a lot of injustices, injustices, discrimination because of nationality and even betrayed by her closest relatives, antifans and fans of the members. another “stoned” for no reason.
BLACKPINK is currently the top Kpop group, the first girl group in Asia to create countless miracles that even world fans must be overwhelmed by. The idea of debuting under the big man YG, was a group with the golden spoon, but before that, the group had to go through many difficulties. Before being able to put their feet into flower shoes, the 4 girls also had to wear worn and worn shoes on the bumpy and rocky road.
Behind the success, BLACKPINK has gone through many difficulties
BLACKPINK’s road to success has been through a lot of hardship. From the beginning when they first entered YG Entertainment, the girls had to give up everything they had, from their family background to their family’s love to start a new life at the “furnace. prison”. Life only revolves around practice and practice, the harsh monthly reviews, but now when I remember, the members are “sticking out their tongue and shaking their heads”.
Not only practicing hard to become an all-talented artist, the girls also suffered extremely severe weight control, pressing weight during the dance practice to the point that their limbs were exhausted. There were many people who couldn’t stand it. Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa are the ones who “survived” to the last moment. The fact that a foreign girl, who does not speak Korean, overcomes many difficulties, challenges as well as loneliness is something not everyone can do.

The fact that a foreign girl can win a debut at YG is really not a simple thing
Few people know that before living in a luxurious dormitory, BLACKPINK used to live in an old, cramped, rundown dormitory full of cockroaches and centipede. Lisa is the youngest but bravest, often volunteering to catch bugs and cockroaches. Today, when remembering old memories, BLACKPINK cannot help but feel emotional. Even Jennie had to grieve: “People only look at our new dormitory, but don’t know the situation in the past”.
When they were trainees, the girls didn’t have much money. They usually only eat scrambled eggs and strawberry jam. Rosé even ate dumplings with a salad dressing. Without money to order food every day, they only go to the supermarket to buy things once a month, buy eggs and strawberry jam because these are the cheapest food. The group’s sharing surprised fans and was extremely sad. That being said, not all princesses are covered with red carpet to step into glory.
Lisa is not the first foreign idol in Kpop, but she is constantly attacked by a group of ugly netizens who often attack her Thai origin, claiming that she is not like a Kpop idol, only beautiful when she is dressed in Korean style. quotes, “stoned”, discriminated against female idols. This issue has happened many times, sometimes pushed to the climax, making international fans angry, Thai artists also have to express their love for Lisa through the hashtag #RespectLisa (Please respect Lisa).
Lisa is lovable and extremely precious for a long time, enduring ugly comments, until now. But she is also the person who breaks the stereotype about idols from Southeast Asia, becoming the omnipotent female idol, the top star today.
Through many hardships, until she thought she was reaping the sweet fruit and only received love and support, Lisa was repeatedly hurt by a part of the so-called “fans”. The 4 “Hắc Hống” girls, who are all beautiful and extremely talented, “ten to ten” deserve to bring the best to help their career go further. However, YG’s strategy somewhat caused the BLACKPINK fandom to be divided, often confused, discord, and divided. Quarreled was not enough, the members’ crazy fans even took actions to hurt the rest of the members.
Many times, Lisa was “stoned” because of ridiculous little things such as few personal Instagram updates or slower support for Rosé’s solo act than her sisters. Once, the other members’ own fans also left words to kill the youngest member of BLACKPINK just because she accidentally lost that member. Even the female idol was threatened to be killed by extremists, causing fans to panic and immediately ask YG to take measures to protect the artist.
Lisa had to swallow tears in countless times
The culmination of Lisa’s tears falling was deceived by someone close to her. At the beginning of June 2020, the case of the youngest member BLACKPINK being fraudulently managed with an amount of up to 1 billion won (more than 19 billion VND) made netizens stir up. This manager has followed the members since debut, so Lisa believes in this person very much. The manager has promised to use the female idol’s money to help her invest in real estate, but in fact, he has “baked” cleanly into gambling and repaying debt. BLACKPINK fans were very outraged because Lisa used to trust this manager very much, treating him like a family member.
A miracle girl and a rare perfect personality in the Kbiz entertainment industry
Despite many difficulties, but the smile never stopped on Lisa’s lips. The little girl is always optimistic and “handles” each difficulty, overcoming them to become strong, mature as today. It all comes from the optimistic attitude and positive personality of the female idol from Thailand. Lisa always holds difficulties and sadness for herself and always wants to bring positivity to those around her. The youngest BLACKPINK once said: “I want everyone around me to be happy, so the first thing I have to do to make everyone happy”.
Possessing a beautiful appearance, a standard body, a successful career, a dreamy life, but Lisa is not arrogant and distant from everyone. On the contrary, the youngest member of BLACKPINK is often praised by colleagues, experts, and staff for being cute, friendly, polite and very kind.
Every photographer who has worked with the youngest BLACKPINK member must recognize that she is very professional and has a very sociable and polite attitude. “International sister” always proactively greeted everyone during the photo session. Venis Venice – a famous manager once posted pictures with his feelings about the youngest member BLACKPINK: “What I feel is that Lisa is extremely polite, funny, humble and very considerate. Everyone admires Lisa so much “.
Kru Koy, Lisa’s first vocal teacher ever revealed her real self. Despite being an international star, Lisa has never forgotten her roots. The vocal teacher revealed that Lisa still keeps a good relationship with her, and at the same time always comes to visit her whenever she has the opportunity to return to Thailand. Lisa is also never arrogant, apart from childhood friends. Every occasion returning home, fans witness a simple Lisa going out to eat on the sidewalk, going out with old friends, far from the luxurious and arrogant image on stage.
Lisa has never forgotten her first teacher …
.. as well as close friends in his homeland of Thailand
The image of Lisa eating on the sidewalk in Thailand is completely different from the luxurious Lisa under the spotlight.
Female idols never give themselves privileges over others. Despite her success and millions of fans around the globe, every time she meets fans, Lisa is friendly, smiles sweetly and greets her fans. There has never been a moment when a female idol does not respect her fans. Even when being deceived by management, Lisa also chose to let this person pay back the money instead of prosecuting the law. This action makes fans unable to respect the youngest member, BLACKPINK.
The role of the youngest brother in the group is even more indispensable. The affection between the BLACKPINK members has long exceeded the boundaries of their colleagues, they have become sisters in the family. Lisa is one of the funniest members of BLACKPINK, but also a delicate person who always takes care of the members, is the one who connects the group, always puts the members first.
The affection between the BLACKPINK members has become family
Perhaps, talent and beauty are what make the fans know about Lisa, but her personality and attitude are one of the most important factors that help the singer retain fans. Lisa is always sincere towards everyone, from her group members, colleagues, fans, staff and industry insiders. All of this has been summarized through Jennie’s saying: “Everyone should be proud of Lisa”.
This year, 24 years old, just 10 years old, Lisa started pursuing her dream. From the girl that day to the adult girl of today, it has been a long way. Lisa’s journey also inspires fans to be an example of always striving, never giving up on dreams and being active even in adversity. Lisa is worthy of being the female idol of miracles, a miracle that makes both Korea and Thailand in particular and the Asian entertainment industry in particular proud.
