BLACKPINK has undoubtedly harnessed their dancing skills, and they have shown their gratefulness to their mentor who had taught them how to become the best.

Part of the rigorous training activities BLACKPINK undergone during their YG trainee days is dancing with much perfection and flexibility. One of the reasons why they stand out among the many idol groups is that they were trained by the stern but loving dance teacher, Kim Hee Jung.

In the latest episode of “24/365 with BLACKPINK,” Lisa, Jennie, Rose, and Jisoo talked about her.

Born in 1979, Kim Hee Jung is YG Entertainment’s dancer from the popular dance group Crazy Girls. The girls dubbed her as the “Potato Teacher” and was revealed to have been a harsh mentor to them. Jennie even mentioned that she got really scared when she started training with her. It turned out that Hee Jung tends to shout and sometimes intimidate them, but only because she was pushing them to become better dancers.

Jennie realized that with the strictness Kim Hee Jung exhibited as their mentor, all BLACKPINK members had become amazing dancers. “Now, when I think about it, thanks to her teaching, we were given an ample chance to improve in such a short period,” Jennie concluded.

Jisoo could not help but agree on what Jennie said about their dance teacher, “Yes, we are fortunate to learn from her.” Adding to that, she never stopped overseeing the girls during their trainee days, and she keeps on watching over BLACKPINK even after debut. She would go visit their sets and look at their choreographies as well.

It was also revealed that BLACKPINK is the last set of trainees she had taught in YG Entertainment and now keeps her eyes on Crazy Girls. “I am so honored that I got to learn from her because we all know we were the last set of students,” she added.
