Blackpink: Meet the K-pop superstars backstage at their first UK tour

They’re one of the world’s biggest K-pop superbands, and their YouTube views currently stack up to more than 6 billion.

Recently, Blackpink played at Coachella where they continued to break records as the first ever female K-pop stars to take to the stage.

They were even spotted by Will Smith when they were ‘K-pop trainees’ in Korea eight years ago.

The band have worldwide appeal, but this is the first time they’ve played in the UK.

The BBC got exclusive access to L-R Jisoo, Rose, Jennie and Lisa, just before their first gig at Wembley Arena.

Produced and filmed by Emily Wolstencroft and Tobias Chapple.
