Yang Hyun Suk disclosed the reason for the lack of a leader in YG's new girl group Black Pink

During the showcased for Black Pink's new album 'Square One,' Papa YG claimed that Black Pink is unique in the sense that there is no appointed leader. 


The YG founder explained, "There were many groups that YG birthed, and we decided to go without a leader for Black Pink. The group never had a leader from the get-go. Because the four of them spent such a long time together, whenever a project is suggested to them, they discuss it together for the results." 


What do you think of this more team-oriented formation of Black Pink?

I have to disagree on this. Yes she is YG's bias, but I think YG saw that calling her a leader won't benefit anyone. Sunye of Wonder Girls, Taeyeon SNSD, Kahi of After School, Jihyo of Twice, Irene of RV, these are leaders, Jennie is hot BUT you gotta admit, her angles and moves are very unpolished and compared to other members, isn't very sharp. BP is my ultimate Stan, I left Twice for BP, but where Taeyeon, Sunye and Jihyo- talent-wise can tell other members off, can you imaginr Jennie, aside from being nearly as hot as AoA's Seolhyun, telling Lisa that she has bad angle or lack stage presence? Or Tell Rose that she sounds off and needs to apply herself more? Jennie, like Jessica Jung or Krystal, is charismatic.. but not leader material.

jennie is already a de facto leader based on the members interactions. she's a natural and seemed to command attention whenever she speaks or do something.

the whole "leader" business is an east-asian contrivance anyway... none of the popular western boy- and girlbands had members explicitly presented as the leader of their band.

This is a good move for yg to avoid a leader for favoritism issues

I think it's also to avoid issues within the group. Seriously, this group is so balanced. They have their own individuality and can work in solos as well and still do good. I think YG avoided biases through not appointing leader. I am not saying that this applied to 2NE1 but I think he wants to avoid another member leaving again. (He wasted Minzy tbh and just focused more on CL on solos, Dara on Varieties, well before he also favored Bom) Use BP wisely YG. Use them individually. Not only one member but all the members because they can.

Leaders are there to squelch personality issues and to delegate.  Obviously these 4 have no issues that would need a leader to sort out.
