Zainab on August 25, 2020:

Just because jennie isnt here people are making fun of jisoo. She is so pretty without makeup. The quality of the camera isnt good. Even nancy from momoland said that even camera cant capture her beauty properly. She is called the visual of blackpink because she fits the korean standards. She is called miss korea for her visuals. Because she is the least popular member of blackpink thats why people dont see her. She is talented she has a nice voice. She is a good vocalist for sure. I am not hating on jennie but you guys shouldnt say jennie is better than jisoo. You shouldnt compare them.
