When it comes to music show set design, few groups can outdo BLACKPINK. Here are just 10 of the times they blew us away with the coolest sets in K-Pop.
1. “BOOMBAYAH” on Inkigayo
From the palm trees to the speakers to the pink truck, this awesome stage design brought together all the most memorable parts of the “BOOMBAYAH” music video.
2. “Whistle” on Inkigayo
This “Whistle” stage had levels—literally. All the members performed on separate platforms during the first half of the song before joining each other for an impeccable finish.
3. “Playing with Fire” on M Countdown
BLACKPINK weren’t kidding when they said they were “Playing with Fire”. Designed to look like an abandoned junkyard, this set featured real fires blazing throughout the performance.
4. “Stay” on Inkigayo
One of BLACKPINK’s prettiest stages has to be this “Stay” set. Giving off feelings of a warm fall night in the open air, the design was only made better by the members singing on swings.
5. “DDU-DU DDU-DU” on Inkigayo
Just in time for BLACKPINK’s rise to worldwide fame, this all-gold set design for “DDU-DU DDU-DU” was the epitome of the opulence they deserve.
6. “As If It’s Your Last” on Show! Music Core
As simple as they were, there’s something very cool about the giant letters spelling out “BLACKPINK” on this “As If It’s Your Last” stage.
7. “Kill this Love” on Inkigayo
The Lara Croft looks BLACKPINK served in their “Kill this Love” music video were some of the most iconic BLINKs have seen, so it was only natural that one of their sets recreated those ruins.
8. “Lovesick Girls” on Show! Music Core
From the white mist to the glass ceilings to the flowers growing up the walls, we’re pretty sure this “Lovesick Girls” set is what BLINK heaven looks like.
9. “Gone” on M Countdown
For this “Gone” performance, Rosé sang on a vintage-style couch in a room adorned with flowers and it fit the vibe of the song perfectly.
10. “On the Ground” on M Countdown
Last but not least, the effort that went into this “On the Ground” set is no joke. Starting off on a floral stage with wedding chapel vibes, Rosé soon transitions to an edgy junkyard, replicating the way her song goes from soft to cool and back again.
