Kazuha of LE SSERAFIM discusses the K-pop band that inspired her to become a musician.
The making-of film for the 2022 MAMA was uploaded to YouTube on December 13.
Kazuha, while sitting in standby with Huh Yunjin, pointed to the Kyocera Dome and said with a grin, “I’ve watched a show here before.“
Huh Yunjin was taken aback and asked, “Really? A ballet performance, perhaps?” Kazuha corrected her: “No, BLACKPINK’s performance.”
Kazuha recalled how in 2018 she saw BLACKPINK perform at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka.
Kazuha has often said how much she loves BLACKPINK and how the group is the reason she got into K-pop.
Kazuha also shared that the members of BLACKPINK serve as an inspiration to her, with the goal of being as captivating and stylish as them.
When Kazuha saw BLACKPINK perform at the ‘Arena Tour 2018: Special Final in Kyocera Dome Osaka’ in 2018, she decided she wanted to be a K-pop idol instead of a professional ballerina.
While Kazuha was in the Netherlands for her 2021 semester of study abroad, she submitted an online audition application to Source Music.
She made it through the audition process and into her first role with LE SSERAFIM.
