BLACKPINK’s Lisa has been selected as the most influential figure in Thailand.
According to a local media report on the 2nd, Lisa topped a recent survey as Thailand’s most influential person, receiving 28.1% of the votes from respondents.
Propelled by the global popularity of K-pop, BLACKPINK enjoys immense popularity in Thailand. Lisa, the team’s rapper and main dancer, is celebrated as a national hero in her homeland.
Previously, Lisa’s mere mention of missing meatballs, a street food from her hometown in Buriram Province, led to a surge in sales for local vendors, highlighting her influence. Additionally, restaurants and tourist spots she visited have also seen a spike in popularity, attracting visitors and boosting business.
Last month, Lisa set a record by reaching 100 million Instagram followers, showcasing her unparalleled global popularity. Her achievement as the first Asian female artist to achieve the feat is a testament to her undeniable influence.

With her dance, singing, visual appeal, and language skills, she has grown into a global star, and interest in her future moves remains high. Lisa has decided not to proceed with an additional contract for individual activities with YG Entertainment. Given her proven talents and considerable influence, anticipations surrounding her future decisions is running high.
