Blackpink celebrated its four-year anniversary with a special clip for fans.

In the video crafted by YG Entertainment, the four bandmates looked back on their time together and answered questions about their careers and their fan group, the Blinks.

“I think it went by really quickly,” said Jisoo of the four years.

Lisa said, “For me, last month felt like our third anniversary.”

Jennie added, “I can’t believe we’re here celebrating our fourth anniversary.”

“Over the past four years, we’ve had great memories together with the Blinks and I feel like we’re becoming more mature year by year, which feels good,” said Rose.

Asked about her favorite memories with the Blinks, Jisoo said: “I think it changes every time I think about it. Since it’s raining today it makes me think of the ice cream event we did on a rainy day.”

Jennie mentioned the group’s recent online fan meeting, saying, “It was so fun to talk with them as if we were just chatting with our friends.”

At the end of the video, Blackpink surprised fans by dancing to their recent single, “How You Like That,” in costumes from the Disney film “Frozen.”

Cravity to release another story-filled album


Shortly after promoting its recent single “Cloud 9,” rookie group Cravity is gearing up for more.

On Saturday, the new boy band under Starship Entertainment dropped a Season 2 video, titled “Hideout: The New Day We Step Into,” which sets the tone for what’s to come from the group.

The clip kicks off with narration from Woobin: “Everything was vague, but the memories were clear. And the destiny we felt in it was happiness. I want to find you guys as the dream gets thicker.” It goes on to feature the bandmates in school uniforms, taking photos and playing claw machine games. Then the story takes a drastic turn with a change to a mysterious setting.

Having debuted with “Break All the Rules” in April, the nine-piece act peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Social 50 Chart. It became the fifth-fastest South Korean group to enter the Social 50, as well as the only K-pop rookie act to make Billboard’s Social 50 in 2020.

The group’s new album will be out Aug. 24.

Mingi of Ateez celebrates 21st birthday


Mingi of Ateez celebrated his 21st birthday with fans.

Right before midnight, the Ateez member took to V Live to celebrate his special day online against a backdrop of gold birthday balloons.

“In the past, I used to celebrate my birthday overseas due to the group’s schedules, but this year I’m glad that I’m in my hometown. I actually feel a bit nervous doing this broadcast all by myself,” said Mingi, wearing a birthday crown.

He’d spent his day chatting with fans via video chat as part of an online fan meeting, he told fans, and talking to his father over the phone.

After receiving a specially crafted mint ice cream cake -- his favorite -- he said, “It’s actually my first time celebrating my birthday this way. I’ve thrown a birthday party before, as I used to just spend the day in a quiet way, or stay home. Thank you so much, Atinys,” he added, addressing the band’s official fandom community.
