BLACKPINK made a splash in the music scene when they debuted on August 8, 2016. They had dual title tracks: “WHISTLE” and “BOOMBAYAH”. They were equally popular, with the former gaining them their first win and the latter being one of the only K-Pop music videos to reach over a billion views.
Both of their tunes and dances solidified them as a certified “girl crush” group. They were not, however, equal in difficulty. Jennie compared them in the online broadcast which celebrated their second year anniversary. She and the others had to answer the questions written on the Jenga blocks they gathered.
The question Jennie was faced with was, “What’s the song that has the most challenging choreography?”
At the time, their options were limited to performances including “WHISTLE”…
…”Playing With Fire”…
…”As If It’s Your Last”…
…and “Forever Young”.
Without thinking too hard, she named “WHISTLE” as the most challenging while “Forever Young” came as a close second.
The most challenging song to dance to…I think this is the most challenging to do a live performance. Personally, it’s ‘WHISTLE’.
She explained that having to sing while dancing was tough. As it was a slower song than most, they needed to be more careful with their notes.
‘WHISTLE’ requires inner strength. We need to breath when singing.
It was an easy choice for her: “I always think ‘WHISTLE’ is harder than ‘BOOMBAYAH'”. Though the latter is visibly more energetic, it’s actually harder for the girls to control their breathing with ‘WHISTLE’.
Looking at their ultra-precise choreography, it’s easy to see why it was Jennie’s pick!
