  • King of Masked Singer (MBC), Episodes 103 and 104 / A music competition show kind of similar to The Voice. Contestants sing wearing elaborate costumes and masks to disguise their identity.

Zodiac Sign: Aries (Western), Ox (Eastern)
From: Bangkok, Thailand

Position(s): Main Dancer, Main Rapper*, Sub-Vocalist, Maknae
*NOTE: Most other sites that I checked list Lisa as lead rapper. It’s true that she is the second rapper whenever Jennie raps.  However, I’m inclined to call her the main rapper because she’s the only one that has rapped on every title track so far.
