While the location for the BLACKPINK music video is undetermined, Hands Up by 2PM was definitely filmed on our shores.
The start of the music video showcased one of the members apparently playing golf overlooking the Marina Bay skyline:
They were also lucky to have clubbed in the now-defunct Zouk at Jiak Kim Road:
K-pop groups may cause an ocean teenage girls to wreak havoc in airports, but it can be a good way to boost tourism in Singapore.
