The Simpsons’ Lisa may have a K-Pop career in her future, as shown in the recent episode where she sang on BLACKPINK’s “Lovesick Girls.”
K-Pop sensation BLACKPINK may have a hidden fifth member in The simpsons.
In season 34, episode 7 of The simpsons, asks Homer Simpson his daughter Lisa what she would like to listen to while driving the car. After Homer talks about a bunch of musical genres, like old school rap, Lisa interrupts him and says, “I like K-Pop, dad.” Homer laughs nervously as he is supposed to show Duffman that he is a good father. Although Homer seemed a bit overwhelmed, as soon as Lisa put on the K-Pop group’s hit “Lovesick Girls,” he, Duffman, and Lisa immediately started singing, managing to sing the Korean lyrics.
Jisoo, one of the singers and the oldest member of the group, saw the episode and excitedly posted the clip on her Instagram Story with the caption, “gahhh! Is it real?! oh yeah!” It is unclear if the other members also watched the episode.
Pop culture in The Simpsons
The simpsons is famous for incorporating pop culture references into its episodes, including anime like Death threat in the recent episode “Treehouse of Horror”. The first time the long-running sitcom mentioned a K-Pop group was in 2019 in season 30, episode 17 when the bestselling K-Pop BTS made a brief appearance. In the episode, Homer coaches Bart’s “Conflict of Enemies” team to the World Championships in Seoul, South Korea. As Homer, Marge, and Lisa explore the city, they pass some signs that mention “BTS” and “BTS Army”, which is the fandom name of the group.
Launched in 2016 with their hit singles “Boombayah” and “Whistle”, BLACKPINK are one of the hottest girl groups in the world. Comprised of four members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa, the group has won countless awards over its six-year career, such as the People’s Choice Awards, Spotify Awards, MAMA Awards, and Melon Music Awards. The name of the group, BLACKPINK, shows the two sides of their music with “black” as a more mature image and “pink” as a colorful and cute image. Their latest album “Born Pink” was the first album by a K-Pop girl group to sell over two million copies and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 charts. The group is currently in world tour where he will perform in South Korea, the United States and parts of Europe.
The simpsons airs Sundays at 8:00 p.m. on Fox.
