Now these Blinks, the official fandom name for the Korean pop group, have some talent.

The kids in the video are cousins Charles Peter Dela Cuesta, 8; Josh Tin Dela Cuesta, 5; Clarl John Dela Cuesta, 9; and Carl Brian Zapanta, 9.

According to their cousin Chearlim Cañeda, she took the video last August 8, 2020, during a relative’s birthday party within their compound in the city just south of Cebu City.

“They are avid fans of Blackpink and every time they get the chance to perform, they give it all their best,” said Cañeda.

She said that since these boys love Blackpink so much, they already made a couple of videos with their other cousin, Shawn, 9, (who is not in the video) and even made their own page dubbed “Shawn TV.”

Cañeda that since the cousins are avid fans of the K-pop group they always make dance videos and upload it online, hoping that they get noticed by the group.

Well, they are on the right track as the video, since it was uploaded on August 8, has already been viewed over 4 million times.

Looks like these little “Blinks” are making a splash alright. Let’s just hope it’s strong enough to reach their idols.  /bmjo
