BLACKPINK’s “Whistle” Becomes The First Song Selected For Induction In The Korean World Music Culture Hall Of Fame

BLACKPINK is making history!

When BLACKPINK debuted with “BOOMBAYAH” and “Whistle” on the single album Square One back on August 8, 2016, no one could have guessed just how huge the girl group would become not just in the K-Pop industry, but in the music world as a whole.

It’s not often that a debut song makes such a major impact in the K-Pop space, and yet both of these tracks continue to remain relevant and inspirational to the younger generations of artists in the industry. “Whistle” even earned a spot by Billboard as one of the best releases of 2016, the first time such a recognition was ever given to a newly debuted K-Pop group.

And now, over seven years later, “Whistle”‘s lasting impact on K-Pop artists and fans alike has earned it a prestigious label by the Korean Federation of Copyright Societies.

“Whistle” is now the first song to be inducted into the Korean World Music Culture Hall of Fame, thanks to its overall impact on Korean culture and society.

Fans are sharing their pride and excitement over this prestigious accomplishment on social media.

Congratulations to BLACKPINK, and to BLINKs, for earning this recognition!
