BLACKPINK star Lalisa Manobal, famously known as Lisa, has shared a picture on Instagram with Brazilian soccer player Neymar Jr. She posted the picture from her Paris trip. BLACKPINK fans, famously called the BLINKs, were surprised by the post that was put on Wednesday. Neymar reposted the photo where the pair look like they are getting cozy on his Instagram story.
The K-pop girl is in Paris for an important event. The First Lady of France, Brigitte Macron, has organized the Le Gala des Piéces Jaunes charity event. Neymar, who plays for the French club Paris Saint-Germain, happened to meet Lisa in the city.

For those who are not familiar, BLACKPINK is a South Korean music group consisting of all girls formed by YG Entertainment. It consists of members Kim Ji-soo (Jisoo), Jennie Kim (Jennie), Roseanne Park (Rosé), and Lisa. The group made its debut in August 2016.
K-pop and soccer have often overlapped, but a BLACKPINK member and Neymar’s picture was long overdue. With the girl group being in Paris, it was made possible.
In his celebrity career, Neymar has been in the news several times due to his highly-publicized relationships. He has been linked to famous actresses and supermodels. The soccer player’s love life has always been the stuff of headlines. Some famous names that have been linked with the Brazilian include Brazilian social media influencer and marketing manager, Bruna Biancardi, and Playboy model Barbara Evans.
Neymar posted his love for BLACKPINK in 2022
After Lisa posted her picture with Neymar on her story, the post went viral. Even Neymar’s official Twitter page posted the picture. A few months ago, in August 2022, PSG’s Neymar put up a post on Twitter to show his love for BLACKPINK’s song Pink Venom.

Neymar has been in decent form for PSG this season. He has scored 11 goals and provided 10 assists in the Ligue 1 this season for PSG. However, he had a disappointing FIFA World Cup 2022 campaign as Brazil was defeated in the quarter-finals against Luka Modric’s Croatia in penalty shootouts 1(4)-1(2).
After the World Cup, PSG faced a Riyadh All Stars team including Al-Nassr’s Cristiano Ronaldo. Neymar missed a penalty in the game, however, PSG won the match 5-4. The Parisians recently faced Pays de Cassel in the Round of 32 of the French Cup and defeated them 7-0. Neymar was on the scoresheet once while teammate Kylian Mbappe got five goals and Carlos Soler scored the other.
