Who is the richest BLACKPINK member and can you guess their net worth?

·5-min read

BLACKPINK is a third-generation K-pop girl group signed under YG Entertainment in South Korea in 2016. Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa form the all-girl band, which debuted with the single album Square One, comprising hits like “Whistle” and “Boombayah.” 

Soon after BLACKPINK’s debut, the K-pop group shot to fame in the country. With multiple music videos topping charts like “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du,” “How You Like That” and “Kill This Love,” they not only created ripples in the K-pop scene but also garnered worldwide acclaim. What added to their popularity was their well-synchronised performances and sense of style both on and off the stage, which even made them brand ambassadors of some of the most prominent luxury fashion houses.

Such is their renown that BLACKPINK dethroned Canadian singer Justin Bieber in September 2021 to become the most subscribed artist on YouTube. On 28 June 2022, the number of followers on their channel stood at 75 million, making them the first musical act to achieve the feat. Like the BTS’ ARMY, the four-member girl band also has a dedicated fanbase who call themselves Blinks.

The band also appeared on the cover of the June 2022 issue of the acclaimed Rolling Stone magazine, making them the first girl group to do so at such a young age. All this contributes to the net worth of the K-pop group, which is estimated at USD 62 million, according to South China Morning Post, as well as BLACKPINK members’ individual earnings. 

Starting with the richest BLACKPINK member, here is the break-up of how much each of them earn:

Jisoo’s career spans from music to acting, with her latest role being in the South Korean drama Snowdrop (2021-2022) opposite Jung Hae-In. According to reports, her net worth is estimated at USD 20 million as of June 2022.

Besides Dior, she is also the face of French luxury jeweller and watchmaker Cartier, Ella Balinska, Yasmine Sabri and Chang Chen, as well as the South Korean cosmetics brand Kiss Me.

While Lisa and other members are working on their solo debut projects, the oldest member of the group hopes to work on more projects alongside her Snowdrop co-actor.
