Roseanne Park (born 11 February 1997), better known by her stage name Rosé (Korean로제), is a New Zealand singer currently based in South Korea. Rosé signed with South Korean label YG Entertainment following an audition in 2012, training there for four years. She eventually made her debut as a vocalist in the girl group Blackpink in August 2016. As a solo artist, she has featured in labelmate G-Dragon's 2012 track "Without You", which peaked at number ten on the Gaon Music Chart.

Life and career[edit]

1997–2015: Early life and career[edit]

Roseanne Park (Korean박채영; Park Chae-young) was born on 11 February 1997[2][3] in Auckland, New Zealand, to South Korean immigrant parents.[4] She has one older sister. In 2004, at the age of seven, Rosé and her family moved to Melbourne, Australia.[5] Rosé attended Canterbury Girls' Secondary College in Melbourne.[6] She began singing and learned to play guitar and piano as a child and performed in church choirs.[5][6]

In 2012 at the age of 15, Rosé attended an audition in Australia for South Korean record label YG Entertainment at her father's suggestion[5] and was ranked first among 700 participants.[7][8] Within two months she had signed with the label and moved to Seoul.[6] Rosé initially thought her father's idea was a joke due to the distance and difficulty of becoming a singer overseas, stating:

In Australia, I didn't think that there was much of a chance for me to become a singer, especially to become a K-pop star... I was living so far from the country that it never really occurred to me as a possibility.[5]

The same year, Rosé was given an opportunity to feature on labelmate G-Dragon's song "Without You" off his EP One of a Kind (2012). Her name was not publicised at the time of release with her credit revealed following her announcement as a Blackpink member.[9] The song peaked at number ten on South Korea's Gaon Music Chart and at number 15 on the Billboard Korea K-pop Hot 100.[10][11]

2016–present: Debut with Blackpink[edit]

Rosé trained at YGE for four years before her announcement as a member of Blackpink in June 2016. She was the last member to be revealed.[12] The group debuted on 8 August 2016 with the single album Square One and lead singles "Whistle" and ''Boombayah".[13]

The singer has also appeared on a variety of broadcast programmes such as music shows King of Masked Singer and Fantastic Duo 2. Her vocal performance on King of Masked Singer was met with a warm reception by the audience, to which Rosé commented that she "didn't know if the audience would like [her] singing" and that she felt "happy and relieved" at the positive result.[4] Rosé later appeared as a performer on the second season of Fantastic Duo. The show's production staff stated that her appearance was intended to "reveal Rosé's vocal appeal, which is different from Blackpink".[14]

A formal solo debut for the singer is currently in development.[15] In February 2019, YG Entertainment confirmed that the song had already been selected with a planned release after Blackpink's second extended play Kill This Love (2019).[16]


Rosé's voice has received acknowledgement in the K-Pop industry for its distinct vocal timbre, following her debut as a member of Blackpink.[17] Filipina critic Almira Blancada, writing for ABS-CBN, stated that "it's hard to find an idol [singer] who stands out from the rest" due to their "common singing style", but "you would know it's Rosé singing in a heartbeat".[18] Following Rosé's performance on an episode of Fantastic Duo 2, South Korean singer Gummy, who Rosé cited as a musical role model,[19] stated that "[Rosé's] voice is so unique, it's the [type of] voice young people love".[20] Rosé has also been acknowledged for having a wide vocal range.[18] As a musician, Rosé considers American singer Tori Kelly an inspiration on her musical style.[21]

Other ventures[edit]


In 2018, Rosé and fellow Blackpink member Jisoo were selected as endorsement models for the South Korean cosmetics brand Kiss Me.[22]


In April 2019, Rosé was the ninth most-followed K-Pop idol on Instagram with over 13 million followers.[23] Rosé has appeared on the Korean Business Research Institute's female celebrity brand reputation list since 2018,[24] a chart that tracks the Korean celebrities with the most online searches and engagements. She has also reached the top 20.[25]
