With all these copying threads going around, I wanted to create a topic for two massively successful girl groups of their generation to show the flow of influences in generations.
1) BLACKPINK was originally meant to be a bigger sized girl group. Confirmed by many sources including Rosé, they were all originally a part of a bigger group. (Miyeon from GIDLE being one of the originally)
3) The girl group original name was PinkPunk (the bigger sized group) but the only 4 left are now (BLACKPINK). BLACKPINK meaning "Pink is commonly used to portray prettiness, but BLACKPINK actually means to say that 'Pretty isn't everything. ' It also symbolizes that they are a team that encompasses not only beauty, but also great talent."
I know it’s a long post, but I thought it would be fun to recognize the influence of the biggest 2nd Gen girl group on the biggest 3rd Gen girl group since BP is influencing so much of the 4th Gen. The SNSD influence certainly shows up in their more poppier sound and their more feminine styling. Thus, BLACKPINK as they are a group that encompasses two of the biggest 2nd Gen girl groups (both who used to be associated with Pink & Black ironically)
