Oh, de-stress. For the past few years, having my close friends, having my family around, and just trying to balance that work life and personal life was very important for me. Because once you get caught in one life, if that’s not balanced, I think that’s when everything starts collapsing. I don’t think one specific thing could de-stress me, because we’ve got something going on every single moment, but keeping a positive mind, just taking care of your mental health and your body, is definitely something that I do…. I meditate, stretch, read, sleep.
Before I went into the last tour that we did, I was not prepared. I did not know what I was walking into, and it all just hit me. Now we are paying much more attention to even the minor details to make it better from our last tour, because we’ve learned a lot in terms of how we can interact with friends and how to showcase our new songs and how to make this tour an experience for people to remember, not just enjoy for a day and forget. We want to make sure everyone remembers that they were at a Blackpink show. – Jennie Kim
