Global K-pop sensations BLACKPINK have officially arrived. Last night, they made their US television debut with an energetic rendition of “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The group impressed with tight, synchronized choreography during their rendition of the trap-influenced pop song. Notably, they didn’t perform the track in English like K-pop counterparts before them have for stateside television appearances, such as Girls’ Generation and the Wonder Girls.
BLACKPINK first made headway in the States last year, when “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” debuted at number 55 on the Billboard Hot 100. The foursome promptly followed up their success by collaborating with recent Grammys Best New Artist winner Dua Lipa for “Kiss and Make Up.” Come April, they will become the first K-pop girl group to perform at Coachella.
