FINALLY! BLACKPINK’s Kim Ji-soo is making her debut as a solo artist, according to the group’s label, YG Entertainment.

On January 2, YG disclosed that the BLACKPINK member is preparing to launch her solo debut in 2023.

“BLACKPINK’s Jisoo is currently working hard on recording her solo album. While carrying out a busy world tour schedule since last year, she finished the album jacket photo shoot and worked on music production whenever she got the time in order to keep the promise with fans. She will greet [fans] soon with good news,” YG Entertainment wrote.

Fans have long been waiting for Jisoo’s solo music gig after the other BLACKPINK members,  Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa, started their solo careers.

Other details regarding Jisoo’s solo album, such as its concept and release date, are yet to be announced.

While she has yet to have a solo music project, she starred in the drama Snowdrop without the other group members.
