The latest appearance of BLACKPINK's Rosé for the cover of the upcoming March 2022 issue of DAZED Korea magazine immediately reaped various comments from netizens who were 'crazy' with her through the Pann Nate forum.

"It's been a long time I haven't seen Rosé with a perm in her hair, so beautiful"

“Her body is like a tall and slender model. Her skin was white, her face wasn't a standard beauty either but she had charm while looking cute too. Anything she shoots will definitely make her look like a professional model. But she also transforms back into an idol when she's on stage and her freshness and grace is solid. She also sings well. The fact that she was the best was even crazier. You can't leave the fandom once you fall in love with Rosé. Rosé's charm is truly indescribable”

“The 2nd pic is crazy, she looks so pretty with curly hair”

“I completely understand why Rosé was chosen by Saint-Laurent. Her aura alone is Saint-Laurent's inspiration.”
