The 12-chapter textbook is story-based and follows the adventures of Blinky, a BLACKPINK fan who is invited to BLACKPINK’s house to spend a day with the members.

Through the story, readers will be able to learn Korean through real-life conversation simulations and BLACKPINK’s catchphrases.

The language pack comes with a MotiPen – an electronic pen that plays the BLACKPINK members’ voices when you place it on certain spots in the textbook.

This allows readers to better grasp the pronunciation and intonation of certain words, and they get to be charmed by BLACKPINK’s sweet voices at the same time. 

However, do take note that some of the voiceovers provided with the textbook are dubbed by professional Korean voice actors.
