Blackpink’s Lisa was overwhelmed by the love of her dedicated legion of fans — known as Lilies and Blinks — as she enjoyed her 26th birthday early during the group’s two-day concert in Bulacan.

The celebration was attended by Janella Salvador, Jane De Leon, Alexa Ilacad, and P-pop supergroup SB19, and other local celebrities.

The four-piece act, who debuted with the songs “Boombayah” and “Whistle” in August 2016, returned to the Philippines for their long-awaited solo concert at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan on March 25 and 26, where Lisa’s pre-birthday celebration was one of the highlights.

The K-pop idol, who turned 26 years old on March 27, received a special cake from fans during the event, as well as several greetings from her bandmates and fans. She also took to her personal Instagram page to express her gratitude, where she shared some of her favorite moments during the show.

“Such crazy energy here in Manila! So happy I got to celebrate my pre-birthday together with my BLINKS,” she said in the caption.
