GLOBAL SUPERSTARS BLACKPINK kicked off the Born Pink World Tour Saturday in the group’s home ground of Seoul, South Korea. The girls returned to the KSPO Dome, the same venue where they opened their first-ever tour “In Your Area.”

That was four years ago, when the venue was still called the Olympic Gymnastics Arena, and the tour concluded in late February 2020, right before Covid-19 lockdowns started happening around the world. Since then, the girls have shot up even higher into super-stardom: With The Album, the group’s Netflix documentary Blackpink: Light Up the Sky, and their livestream concert “The Show” all in 2020.
The group kicked off the show with “How You Like That” and “Pretty Savage,” dressed in custom ivory outfits with Asian-inspired silhouettes and prints. “It feels weird to perform in front of our Blinks after so long. I feel nervous and emotional and excited,” Rosé shared.
Blackpink made their return with their second full-length album Born Pink in Sept., and now with Covid-19 restrictions lifted in South Korea, fans from overseas flew in for the long-awaited show. The setlist included six of the eight newly released songs, marking the first time some of the tracks have been performed in front of an audience.
