No one was more excited about her win than the other members of BLACKPINK themselves! The girls are first shown cheering when Lisa is announced as the winner with Rosé standing up to hug her while Jennie cheers! Jisoo can’t seem to get over her excitement and shock, watching Lisa walk away with her hands over her mouth.
During her speech the girls are seen watching with hearts in their eyes, laughing and clapping when Lisa thanks “Teddy oppa” BLACKPINK’s producer. Jennie is also shown dancing the iconic L move found in “LALISA” as Lisa continues her speech.
When Lisa begins to thank BLINKs for helping her achieve the award, Jennie seems to become overcome with emotion and pride, appearing to scrunch her face to avoid crying.
When Lisa turns around to where the other members are sitting to wave and give them a special shoutout in Korean, the girls’ excitement overflows with Rosé blowing kisses towards her as Jisoo and Jennie make hearts and send kisses as well.
There’s a long list of people who are proud of Lisa and the other members of BLACKPINK are right there at the top!
