BLACKPINK will be returning to reality show shenanigans with their self-produced show titled B.P.M, aka BORN PINK MEMORIES.

On December 1, 2022, YG Entertainment released a teaser of B.P.M with a retro movie reel aesthetic. The video worked on heightening the curiosity of the quartet’s next series of promotional activities, especially since they made a Korean album comeback with BORN PINK after nearly two years.

Similar to the album, the upcoming variety show also marks the idols’ first reality show in two years. The group's last show was 24/365 with BLACKPINK, which was released in 2020. The first episode of B.P.M, titled Roll #1, was released on December 2.
