K-pop has in recent years become a global phenomenon as the music genre is today receiving airplay in parts of the world that would have previously not given a thought to such music. While there are more than a few people who can lay a claim to have helped make the genre popular, no one can outrightly dispute the role Lalisa Manoban has been able to play to this effect.

The Thai rapper, dancer, and singer is a member of the YG Entertainment all-girl group Blackpink who is unarguably the biggest female K-pop group in the world. This is thanks to the fact that they have attained the highest positions on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200 chart among the other K-pop acts, and are also the most subscribed music group on YouTube among other notable criteria.

On a personal note, Manoban, who is also a model and fashion icon, has in 2019 become the most followed K-pop artist on Instagram, a clear nod to her popularity, marketability, and claim to be one of the industry’s bigwigs.

Lalisa Manoban’s Fact Sheet

Lalisa Manoban’s Early Life and Career Beginnings

Lalisa Manoban was born Pranpriya Manoban on the 27th of March 1997 in the northeastern Thailand province of Buriram. While the identity of her biological father is not public knowledge, her mother is known to be of Thai origins while her stepfather, Marco Brueschweiler, is a native of Switzerland.

Manoban spent her formative years in Bangkok and fell in love with K-pop music at a tender age. She admired acts such as Big Bang and aspired to become just like them. To realize these lofty aspirations, she enrolled in several talent hunt competitions. She also joined a dance crew known as We Zaa Cool.

Lalisa Manoban Has Had Successes With Blackpink Music Group

In 2010, the then 14-year-old Lalisa Manoban successfully auditioned to join YG Entertainment. She spent five years training under the South Korean entertainment company before debuting as a member of Blackpink in August 2016.

Blackpink dropped its first album titled Square One in August 2016. The album spurned several hit songs including “Whistle” and “Boombayah” which reached numbers 1 and 2 on the Billboard World Digital Songs Chart respectively. Following this impressive debut, Manoban and her bandmates did not relent as they dropped their sophomore album titled Square Two in November 2016.

Square Two equally produced several hit songs including “Playing With Fire” which also topped the Billboard World Digital Songs Charts. This back-to-back success unsurprisingly earned Blackpink universal rookie of the year honors at all the major award shows in Asia.

Since their stellar debut, Lalisa Manoban and her bandmates have gone on to drop several other chart-topping projects. They have also set many enviable records, including being the first K-pop girl group to perform at the Coachella Music Festival and the first K-pop girl group to grace the cover of Billboard Magazine, among other achievements.
