    24.September.2017 | FASHION

    The number of tickets requested to see BLACKPINK’s debut at the Budokan was enough to fill 20 Budokans. The successful ticket requests were then called “premium tickets”. BLACKPINK decorated the front covers of magazines with titles such as “live sold out in 3 days”. Taking the country by storm, this popular Korean girl band has steadily advanced. Now, BLACKPINK will be on the front cover of Zipper magazine’s autumn edition! The band will feature in a separate volume called “Issatsu Marugoto BLACKPINK PERFECT BOOK”. This will be released for sale on 23rd September.
