With K-Pop going global and more people falling in love with the idol groups, it isn’t surprising that the list of celebrities that have cemented themselves as K-Pop stans is also growing.
Recently, one person has confirmed their status as one of us, and it’s none other than “Never Have I Ever” actress Maitreyi Ramakrishnan.
The Canadian actress is known for her role as Devi Vishwakumar in the hit show “Never Have I Ever” and is currently promoting the latest Disney Pixar movie, “Turning Red.”
During an interview with MTV, Maitreyi was discussing her music taste, and it seems like she is a big fan of none other than BLACKPINK!
During the interview, Maitreyi was asked if there was an artist she loved that people might be surprised about.
She then added that although fans are constantly shocked about it, Maitreyi has explained on several occasions that she’s a huge BLACKPINK fan!
A lot of my fans, just people in general, are like, ‘Oh my god, she likes BLACKPINK. What?’ I’m like, ‘Yes, I do. I’ve said this multiple times.’
Yet, if that wasn’t enough, she actually spilled on who her bias in the group is, and it’s none other than BLACKPINK’s maknae Lisa!
During the interview, Maitreyi was very clear about her love for Lisa, adding, “Lisa is my favorite. I love BLACKPINK to death.” It seems like she is a true BLINK, judging by her enthusiasm when speaking about the members.
Yet, it isn’t the first time Maitreyi has shared her love for the idol group. Back in 2021, the actress shared an old video of the time she went to see the group. Although it was LQ, it was BLACKPINK, so it doesn’t matter.

Yet, it isn’t the first time an A-Lister has shared their love for BLACKPINK and particularly revealed Lisa to be her bias. While chatting to a fan, musician Lauren Jauregui also revealed that her favorite is none other than Lisa!
Fan: Do you have a favorite, or a member you like? If you’re familiar with them.
Jauregui: Of them? I don’t know them like that, but I think Lisa is the one that recently… Yeah, she’s really, really pretty.
Hopefully, with Maitreyi being more vocal about her love for the group and a potential BLACKPINK comeback around the corner, she can maybe see the group again or even meet them if they tour again.
