Blackpink officially made their American TV broadcast debut in February last year. The quartet appeared at GMA's studio in Times Square in February 2019, and performed their pop song smash 'Ddu-Du Ddu-Du'. The single was a commercial success in South Korea and was also received positively in the U.S. The song's accompanying music video also became the most viewed online video, and second most-watched music video of all time within 24 hours, at the time of its release.
On their previous GMA appearance, Blackpink also gave a brief interview. "We're just excited to be here and see everyone," said Jennie about being in New York for the first time as a group, while Rosé explained how the group's fandom name "Blink," is derived from the group's name by just shortening it by a few letters.
Meanwhile, Blackpink's new documentary 'Light Up the Sky' recently released on Netflix on October 14 to notable critical and fan reception. 'Light Up the Sky' tells the story of the South Korean girl group as bandmates and as individuals and details their rise to fame. Their comeback LP 'The Album' has also seen rave reviews and is continuously making headlines amid its global promotions. The Album contains collaborations with Selena Gomez and Cardi B, and its latest single 'Lovesick Girls' released on October 2.
Blackpink is also scheduled to appear as guests to perform on ABC's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' a day earlier than their 'Good Morning America' appearance, on October 20.
