Thailand’s K-pop sensation Lalisa Manoban, better known as Lisa, of the renowned girl group BLACKPINK, has set social media ablaze with a 10-second teaser of her latest solo track, Rockstar, sparking a frenzy among fans worldwide.

The teaser, a mere glimpse of the full song set to release this Friday, showcases vibrant scenes from Bangkok’s Chinatown at night. Iconic locations like Yaowarat Road, the now-defunct New World Banglamphu shopping mall, and a local tattoo parlour add a unique flair to the clip.

Eagle-eyed fans quickly recognised the escalator Lisa stood on as one inside the New World Banglamphu Mall. Once a bustling hub on Rattanakosin Island, the mall has been abandoned for decades. However, recent plans by the Phra Nakhon District Office aim to transform it into a tourist attraction, possibly spurred by its newfound fame.

“Lisa’s choice to film in Thailand will surely boost the country’s soft power and tourism industry.”
