One of BLACKPINK‘s Jisoo‘s earliest individual schedules was when she was a host for SBS‘s music program Inkigayo. From 2017 to 2018, she was the “Ji” in “Jin-Ji-Do”, made up of GOT7‘s Jinyoung and NCT 127‘s Doyoung.
While she was praised for doing well every week, it wasn’t the easiest job in the industry. She revealed why when BLACKPINK guested on Jung Yumi’s FM Date Radio Show in 2017.
As an Inkigayo MC, she was in charge of introducing artists, interviewing them, and announcing the weekly winners. Though the script she was presented with made it appear easier than other jobs, there was also little room for error.
It’s not hard but I occasionally make mistakes.
It was the possibility of being wrong in front of thousands of viewers that was difficult for her.
It’s a live broadcast so even if I make mistakes, I can’t start over. Those kinds of things are hard.
When asked if there was any particular mistake that she remembered, she replied that some general moments stand out.
Rather than a particular mistake I remember, I often make small mistakes. So the people next to me quickly go over the mistake.
If ever Jisoo made any errors, they certainly weren’t noticeable! She was so professional as an MC, she once kept her cool even while her members cried after winning first place with “As If It’s Your Last”.
