Lisa won’t be greeting fans as a quarter of South Korean girl group Blackpink, neither as the ambassador of make up brand MAC Cosmetics.
Instead, the 23 year-old Thai rapper-dancer will be returning as a mentor for the third season of Chinese survival programme “Youth With You”.
Though the upcoming season will only feature male trainees, the end goal of the programme — to pick the best talent to form an idol group — remains the same.
Lisa mentored budding female trainees in the second season alongside Mandopop vocalists Ella Chen, Cai Xukun and rapper Jony J.
She was in-charge of teaching trainees the choreography to the programme’s theme song “Yes Ok!”.
Her unfeigned feedback and unbending standards gave her a renewed image, one different from her doll-like character she portrays in Blackpink.
Video streaming site iQIYI also posted a teaser of Lisa announcing her return to the show, featuring three of her fur kids.
Lisa will be mentoring trainees alongside Chinese singer-songwriter Li Ronghao. “Youth With You 3” will soon be available on iQIYI.
