On February 1, BLACKPINK Lisa’s wealthy status drew massive attention as fans recognized the idol’s special credit card following a clip.
Recently, Jisoo published a vlog on her personal YouTube channel wherein she was seen alongside Lisa strolling around the Christmas market in Cologne, Germany. When the idols bought liquor, Lisa pulled out her wallet to pay for it.
Just then, hawk-eyed fans noticed a credit card that especially stood out for its black color. Upon observation, netters claimed that it was actually a VVIP black card, also owned by veteran actor Lee Jung Jae and BTS Jin!

The annual fee is 2.5 million won (about 2k USD), the most expensive in Korea. Strictly 1,000 people can only receive its issuance, who are usually the 0.05% of Korean people with top-tier social status and economic ability.

Previously, Lisa had suffered a 1 billion won ($820k) loss in real estate fraud when her former manager at the time promised the idol to find her real estate in Korea on her behalf.
Mr. A is known to have been a manager with BLACKPINK since its debut and has been trusted by the company and its members. However, the trust was broken after it was revealed that the manager used the idol’s money for gambling. After the fact became known, he quit YG Entertainment.
