“At the MTV VMA’s, Lisa came first in the category of Best K-pop Video; an award which had been exclusively won by BTS since it’s introduction in 2019. BTS were also the previous winners in the Best K-Pop category at the EMA’s in 2021 before Lisa completed a historic double,” Guinness stated.

In addition, Lisa also scored the title of “most followers on Instagram for a K-pop artist with 86.3 million followers as of 19 January 2023.”

Guinness World Records added, “This makes her the 38th most followed account on the platform, with Cristiano Ronaldo being the most followed individual with 538 million followers.”

BLACKPINK, meanwhile, bagged the “Best Metaverse Performance for their performance of new single ‘Ready For Love’ in the video game PUBG [PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds] Mobile, gaining an additional Guinness World Records title for being the first winners of the award.”

As of January this year, Guinness said, BLACKPINK held records for “most subscribers for a band on YouTube as well as becoming the first K-pop group to reach No.1 on the UK albums chart (female) and the first K-pop group to reach No.1 on the US albums chart (female).”
