Now, let me cover a brief life story of Lisa Swalla.
So, this story begins on 27th March 1997. Living in the Buriram Province of Thailand, the couple Mr. and Mrs. Manoban was blessed with a girl child and they named her Pranpriya Manoban. Pranpriya was a very fun-loving and enthusiastic child and along with that she was a very quick learner also. She was good at almost everything, be it studies, singing or dancing. Since childhood, she was greatly influenced by Korean Culture and K-Pop music. She loved listening to K-Pop music.
Big Bang was her favorite and she has always wished to be a K-Pop dancer since her childhood but in the meantime her parents got divorced as their relationship was not working. After this, Mrs. Manoban i.e., Pranpriya’s mother married Marco Brüschweiler, a renowned chef from Switzerland.
Once Pranpriya’s family met a fortune teller who advised them to change Pranpriya’s name. At the behest of the same, her parents changed her name from Pranpriya to Lalisa which means the one who is praised. And today if we look at the success of Lalisa, then it is very clear that he was not a road-side astrologer as he chose the perfect name for her. I am saying it because Lisa is such a popular name in the whole world today.
Lisa has been a great dancer since her childhood and that’s why her mom got her admitted in the dance classes. Anyways, even though she started taking dance classes, her dream of becoming a K-Pop artist was not being fulfilled anywhere as in Thailand, there was no opportunity of doing so.
At that time, Lisa had no option but still she did not waste her time and she continued to participate in many local competitions including a show, To Be Number One and there she joined a dance group named We Zaa Cool.
Well, after waiting for so long and putting so much effort, finally in 2010, a South Korean Company, YG Entertainment decided to host their auditions for the first time in Thailand. This moment was like a dream come true for Lisa as she was always waiting for this opportunity and she didn’t want to lose it at any cost so she gave the auditions. And you will be shocked that around 4000 candidates gave that audition out of which Lisa was the only one who qualified it. After some days, she received an invitation from the same company, YG Entertainment, to ask whether she wants to join that company. She immediately showed that invitation letter to her parents and asked them for their permission but her father’s answer was a clear no. The reason behind his refusal was that Lisa was only 14 years old at that time and to join the entertainment industry she had to go to South Korea which is obviously a very challenging in itself. After hearing this, Lisa’s curiosity immediately turned to apathy but she did not give up. She requested her parents again and again and finally they gave her the permission. And then, only at 14 years of age, she went to South Korea alone.
But now the biggest problem was that due to living in Thailand, Lisa did not know Korean at all and because of this she was unable to discuss anything with anybody there. But after a few months, she met a girl Jennie who knew English and thus, they both started sharing everything with each other.
Well, after that Lisa continued to train herself and in the meantime she also featured in the song Ringa Linga as a background dancer. Along with it, she also modeled for a local brand.
Finally in 2016, after doing so much hard work and training, the day came when her childhood dream was about to come true as she debuted in the K-Pop Industry as a member of a girl group, Blackpink, a 4 members group consisting of Jennie (Vocals), Jisoo (Lead vocalist), Rosé (Lead Dancer), and ofcourse Lisa where she was positioned as a main dancer and a main rapper.
Blackpink made their debut with the song “Boombayah” and Lisa was only 19 years old at that time. Immediately after their debut, Blackpink was exploded like a bomb as their song was a huge hit in South Korea and they gained an enormous amount of fans in no time. But at the same time, they gained some haters too.
Of those four, Lisa’s haters were the most and Korean netizens started attacking Lisa. The reason was just because she was not Korean. As she was from Thailand, her face complexion was all Thai and some Koreans didn’t like it at all as they wanted their idol to be completely Korean, thus, they started attacking Lisa on every social media platform. This hate didn’t end here. The limit was crossed when Lisa started receiving public hate in her events and interviews and that too at its extreme level. Lisa was greatly affected by all these and it is very obvious.
But as we know Love has more power than Hate and the same proves in the case of Lisa when her fans came for her rescue and filled all the social media platforms with their love and positive comments hiding all the negative ones.
Her fans’ love has helped Lisa to regain her lost confidence and after that Lisa truly created havoc in the whole South Korea. She established her unique and lovely identity in the minds of all her fans by her talent and skills. She is a part of the survival and now she is successful as a model and has done the same for various top-rated magazines.
At last, I just want to say that she is really a very important and inseparable part of Blackpink.
