In a recent upload of BLACKPINK‘s reality content, 24/365 with BLACKPINK, the members looked back on their more difficult days as a trainee and made the disgusting confession that they used to live with cockroaches and centipedes.
As expected for poor trainees, Jennie shared that they had no money as trainees and revealed what they used to eat as a result.
We didn’t have much money at the time. So we mainly lived based on eggs and strawberry jam. We always had scrambled eggs with strawberry jam at least once a day.
But the unfortunate revelation turned into a shocking one when Jennie continued her description of BLACKPINK’s early days.
We used to live with cockroaches.
And Rose and Jisoo confirmed the claim.
The centipedes were this big.
We couldn’t even catch them. When we trapped one with a cup, there was another one beside it.
But thank goodness they had Lisa because according to the members, she was the only one who could catch them with her bare hands.
When Lisa caught them, we would put it on a piece of paper and send it outside.
Luckily, BLACKPINK is one of the top idols in the Korean entertainment industry, meaning they won’t have to live in such conditions again.
But despite their success and glamour now, their journey to stardom wasn’t an easy one.
On an added note, Lisa’s truly a brave soul.
