Pinoy fans of Blackpink immediately shared their excitement with the release of their idols' album, with the hashtags #JENNIE, #JISOO and #ROSE, among the trending topics on Twitter Philippines. 

Last month, the Blackpink made headlines with the release of their collaboration with American singer Selena Gomez, "Ice Cream," which is the second pre-release single off Blackpink's first full-length album.

The first single off the album, "How You Like That," released in July, achieved commercial success and broke YouTube records.

Last year, Blackpink made history as the first Korean girl group to perform at the Coachella music festival in the United States.
