The video coincides with the broadcast of Chinese idol-trainee competition show Youth with You, where Lisa mentored and performed ‘Kick Back’ with her team. Lisa also disclosed that she had asked her Thai friend from NCT/SuperM/WayV (same he’s always booked) to teach her the choreography to their latest song, which was released last March.
We love a cute and talented friendship!
