Winner (Naver V Live)

Winner on Saturday celebrated the fifth anniversary of its debut.

The four members went live from their celebration dinner at a nice restaurant. As the meal was coming to an end with desert, the bandmates said hello to fans to thank them.

It was also the same day that eldest member Jinu made his solo debut on a TV broadcast with single “Call Anytime.”

“I was so nervous,” said Jinu. “So many fans came to cheer for me, so I was very thankful.”

The members blew a candle on a cake specially designed for them and each made a wish. The restaurant’s chef also made a tiramisu cake with the bandmates’ faces printed on top.

“For five years, thank you to members and fans for being together with us,” said Mino. “It’s great to be together on a good day.”

“Lot of things have changed in the past five years, from visuals to style, personality and many other things,” said Seunghoon.

“But one thing that hasn’t changed is our love and gratefulness to our fans. It only got bigger. Thank you for all your support, waiting for us and your love. We will walk together for the next five, 10 and 50 years with unchanging love and faith.”

“I think it’s very difficult to like one thing or person for five years. But thank you for continuously supporting and loving us. We really respect our Inner Circle (Winner’s fandom).”

“For the past five years, I think we worked hard to keep our promises,” said Seungyoon. “From now on, we will try even harder to keep our promises with you. Nowadays, I think it’s more important to do things together, more than achieving something.

“When we made our debut, our goal was to become successful and rank No. 1. But now, I want to be with everyone together for a long time. Thank you for protecting us, and we will become Winner that you are proud of.”

“We didn’t know what to expect. But seeing all of you dancing and singing along to our new song made me really happy,” said Lisa.

“Tonight’s going to be a very special night,” said Jennie. “I am going to remember tonight forever.”

During their stop in Paris, Jisoo and Rose toured Montmartre, enjoying the scenery and shopping.

They bought a souvenir bag with Paris printed on it, as well as T-shirts for fellow members Jennie and Lisa.

Blackpink held the grand finale of its European tour in Barcelona.

“It was the most perfect way to end our Europe tour. I am happy we could make a memorable night together,” said Lisa onstage.

“The European tour came to an end after two weeks. It was such a fun time,” said Jennie after the show. “Europe felt less familiar, but I was surprised to see so many people coming to see us and hear our music.”

“I can’t wait to meet Blinks (Blackpink’s fandom) in Korea and have fun together,” said Jisoo.

“I can’t wait to eat Kimchi stew and white rice in Korea,” said Rose.
