In the video, member Rosé is seen saying "Hanoi, we love you." She also tries the claw machine given to her by Vietnamese fans.

Meanwhile, bandmate Lisa reveals to viewers that she tried to preserve her best look by keeping her hair down during the group’s second concert night despite the hot weather in the city.

The video also contains other fond moments of the concert.

Blackpink debuted in 2016 and consists of Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo and Rosé. The group has since achieved international success with numerous hits like "Ddu-Du Ddu-du," "Kill This Love" and "Pink Venom."

Their shows at Hanoi’s My Dinh National Stadium on July 29 and 30, which were attended by an estimated 70,000 people, were part of the group’s "Born Pink" world tour which began late last year and has grossed around US$163.8 million so far.

This makes it the highest grossing girl group tour of all time, surpassing the previous record set by the Spice Girls' 2019 Reunion Tour ($78.2 million).

The status of the girl group has recently been a hot topic due to the expiring exclusive contract with YG Entertainment. South Korean news outlets have quoted "music industry insiders" who said Rosé is the only member that has renewed her contract with the talent management agency, while the remaining three members are keeping their options open.

Member Lisa has also been embroiled in hot water for her performances at the Crazy Horse Paris, renowned for its nude female dancing, on September 28-30. She has been criticized for possibly setting a bad example for her fans, many of whom are minor, and for sexualizing women, especially female office workers.
