To help fans get to know the seven members, YG Entertainment is releasing introductory videos detailing everything from each member’s struggles while training to what their mentors believe their strongest skills are.
The newest video introduces netizens to Chiquita, who, like Pharita, is from Thailand.
In the video, former YG Entertainment CEO and founder Yang Hyun Suk praises Chiquita’s natural skill, explaining that despite having the shortest training time among the members, she’s “born with [talent].”
BLACKPINK‘s Lisa also praises Chiquita’s skill when she meets with Chiquita and Pharita as a mentor, which the two BABYMONSTER members couldn’t have been more excited about, sharing their appreciation for the idol.
Even though you haven’t trained for long, you’re just as good as the other girls, Chiquita.
And while fans loved seeing Lisa as an inspiration and mentor for other idols…
OUR MAKNAE IS NOW A SUNBAE 🤭
Also mentor Lisa, I miss you!!!!

They called out Yang Hyun Suk for comparing Chiquita to Lisa.

Toward the end of the video, Yang Hyun Suk expresses his desire for Chiquita to “be popular just like [Lisa].”
From a producer’s perspective, it’s very clear that Chiquita is a special kid. I really hope in the future, she’ll be popular just like Lalisa and practice global influence. That’s my personal hope.
— Yang Hyun Suk
There’s no denying Lisa’s global impact as the star continually breaks records as a part of BLACKPINK and a soloist. Lisa is also a global fashion icon, representing luxury brands like Celine and BVLGARI.
Reportedly, the idol has even been offered ₩100 billion KRW (about $76.6 million USD) to sign a contract with a company outside of Korea once BLACKPINK’s contracts with YG Entertainment expire.
While fans agree with Yang Hyun Suk about Lisa’s incredible success, they are voicing their frustration at the comparison and even his mentioning of Lisa. Fans believe YG Entertainment has mistreated Lisa, causing the idol to have to find success despite YG Entertainment’s management.
Him, mentioning LISA makes me sick.
Coming from disgusting Yang Hyun-suk’s mouth who never treats her well sounds like an insult. “She will be popular like LALISA” (but w/ mistreatments because she’s a foreigner?)

all this lisa praise is not matching up to the way shes treated under that nasty company pic.twitter.com/z3rlUGjPij

how can you want someone to be like lisa, pressuring someone to follow in her footsteps, and yet completely MISTREAT her & turn a blind eye on her potential and impact all at the same time? pic.twitter.com/uuuF4CkWFt

this man. this man sabotaged lisa’s career. when she started getting really big, she couldn’t travel anymore. she couldn’t even pay respect to her grandfather when he died. never forget that.

Fans also don’t believe the comparison is fair to Chiquita, who, while talented, hasn’t debuted yet. They don’t want the members of BABYMONSTER to have pressure to become the next BLACKPINK, arguing that BABYMONSTER should instead be able to embrace their own unique charms and identity.
Exactly homie, “Be like lisa lisa lisa”
He can just tell these girls to be themselves.
they have great talents and own charisma.
Why always pressure them??
It’s not called motivation, but YG is too desperate. these girls are still young!
— JOY 🎥🏳️🌈⁰³²⁷ (@LisagittarProd) February 22, 2023
No hate to her but yg is already trying to market her as the next Lalisa. Can’t even compliment her without comparing her to fave & shamelessly saying all this while treat lisa like sht. He knows her influence globally that’s why they want to hold her back as much as they can.
— mm. IA 👉🏻🏖 (@Manobal_0327) February 22, 2023
he literally can’t go 5 seconds without pitting women against each other like why not let chiquita be chiquita AND let lisa be lisa..
