Jennie, Lisa, Rosé, and Jisoo made BLINKs proud again as the four-piece group made history by becoming this year's 2022 Entertainer of the year.

On TIME Magazine's website, it shared a special article dedicated to the girl group to mark a new milestone in its career. It also detailed the most notable events BLACKPINK experienced this year, including the release of Pink Venom and the launch of the 27-date world tour.

BLACKPINK also dropped its highly-anticipated second studio album, Born Pink, in September. It has since become its best-selling album after selling over 2 million copies. The members are also in the middle of the sold-out Born Pink world tour.

On top of these, the girl group dominated YouTube, as well, by having over 83 million subscribers.

"You don't accomplish all that by being like other pop groups. Most have a limited life span: they age out, flame out, or see one member rise above. But Blackpink has managed to become the biggest girl group in the world precisely by allowing its members to be solo stars in their own right," TIME said.

BLACKPINK officially became the second K-pop act to score the title, following BTS, who got it in 2018.
