BLACKPINK is officially back with their brand new single “Pink Venom.”
The group returned with a powerful hip-hop track, along with a high-quality music video and iconic designer outfits they made their own.
The music video showed a strong performance from the members and highlighted each of their individual talents.
From Jennie‘s runway walk down a red carpet and her epic rap…
… to Lisa‘s effortlessly smooth dancing and equally epic rap performance…
… to Jisoo‘s impressive and visually stunning geomungo performance…
… and Rosé showcasing her talented musical skills, becoming a rockstar on the electric guitar.
Fans loved seeing the new side to the group and enjoyed the references to BLACKPINK’s past music sprinkled throughout the video.

While fans eagerly dissected the music video for every hidden meaning, they noticed something familiar about a cloaked extra in Jisoo’s scene.
With their larger-than-life presence, it’s hard to believe that Lisa could hide in the video, but it took some fans a few watches before they spotted the group’s charismatic maknae in a scene with BLACKPINK’s oldest member Jisoo.
In a moment that flashes by in an instant, Lisa is shown among the cloaked extras in Jisoo’s scene, intently staring up at where Jisoo is seated while wearing a VR headset.
The moment had some fans convinced they were seeing things until a behind-the-scenes video of the music video filming was released, confirming that the mystery star was, in fact, Lisa.
In the clip showing the making of the music, Lisa visits Jisoo while she’s filming her individual scenes. Lisa’s casual clothing during her visit led fans to believe Lisa’s cameo wasn’t previously planned.
Fans loved seeing the surprise appearance and shared their excitement about spotting the disguised maknae.
now i know why they said we have to watch 10 times IT'S BECAUSE LISA HAS A CAMEO IN JISOO'S SCENE pic.twitter.com/I9uJgCBvrA
