Yang Hyun Suk clarifies that all 4 Black Pink members have solo projects in the works


Shortly after news that Black Pink's Jennie would be making her solo debut soon, Yang Hyun Suk took to his Instagram to clarify any fans' misunderstandings or concerns regarding Black Pink's future paths.


Papa YG wrote, "We are simultaneously working on new BLACKPINK songs as well as solo projects for all 4 members at the moment. JENNIE’s solo will be the first one to be released, followed by ROSÉ’s solo. The biggest strength of BLACKPINK is that each member’s ability/talent as a solo artist is as strong as their teamwork/cohesiveness."


If Yang Hyun Suk keeps his words, that means fans can look forward to solo music from all 4 Black Pink members very soon! Check out Yang Hyuk Suk's SNS spoiler for Jennie's upcoming solo project below, while you wait for more news on solo projects from the other members!

Yeah I don’t buy this for some reason. It feels like he wants to make sure Jennie’s solo project doesn’t get any backlash. They could’ve easily announced this was the plan in the first place seeing as they had time to put out a statement confirming Jennies solo release.

Of course these things have all been thoroughly calculated. YG papa needs ample buzz today to give Kiss and Make Up an extra lift. As simple as that. Plus, I've learned with YG releases to doubt anything and everything until an official MV drops. These tactical moves Yang HyunSuk plays frustrate me to the high heavens.

Can they just release their full album? A good idea would be to have three group singles throughout the year but also have solo singles that are apart of the album. Kills two birds with one stone.

So you're telling me a group that doesn't even have 10 songs to their name is already doing solo promotions? What do you mean simultaneously working on BP songs and solo songs? Work on the songs separately, in fact just work on the BP songs. It's been 2 years and they only have 9 songs and an upcoming concert in a month. Basically the concert is just going to be a BP and 4 solo artists concert. Yeah ok

Followed by Rose and ending it there. They are thinking twice of giving solo to the two members. lol. Lisa is the most well received member from them. I hope they will give her solo.

TBH, YG is hyping them but don't believe him until the whole product is out. See what happened to CL or 2ne1 album that was promised? None of them happened.

I hope they will stop giving false hope to their fans and just start executing all their projects.

Honestly i dont think giving Lisa a solo is a good idea,

a subunit? sure. dance videos? sure. but she isnt that good of a singer yet to get a solo.

She might be well received, but i've seen 'popular' pple have their solos flopped cos pple dont actually buy the songs as much as they hype the individual.

Solo project is good only when they are ready. To me, they are not. Besides they still have a lot to prove as a group.

I think this is stemming from the fact that Yang is unable to move the girls to the "next level."

In hindsight this may be a good thing, successful individual solos may shut up these 'Jisoo can't sing, Lisa can't rap' hecklers/haters a little bit.

Sorry YG, but I'll believe it when I see it. I too think after all the hate, he's just putting this out there so that Jennie's solo doesn't get too attacked when it comes out. This doesn't take away what most people mentioned regarding her solo.

So if they ever do release an album, it will be a repackage of all their solo songs, and <10 previous group songs, and then they’ll then go straight to milking concert revenue. YG is greedy and lazy AF.

And of course, Yang Hyun Suk perfectly timed the release of this somewhat devastating news (to us OT4 Blinks, anyway) so we'd "bulk buy" Kiss and Make Up, which would be their last OT4 single for the foreseeable future. I'm seething. We were lead to believe they'd have another comeback this November. And I for one hoped they'd finally give us a full album. Genius. But evil.

I'm sorry, but I can't help believing this is just YG doing damage control. I mean really, in the last two years we have gotten two new songs (considering the other three on Square Up were all written before their debut). Now I'm supposed to believe YG is working on solo material for all four girls AND group material at the same time?? I can't swallow that pill. It's only thanks to Dua Lipa that we got Kiss & Make Up

I guess it would have been better if they released a full album first, however I'm still really happy about this. Hopefully we won't have to wait for a long time for all of their solo projects, it would just create even more drama in the fandom.

Hmm I am not sure if this is the best. I mean they are really talented so they deserve their solos, but a non-successful solo vs. successful one just brings one member into limelight vs. others compared to a group. This in long run isn't good for the group as we have seen multiple times. An established GROUP like Bigbang can pull it off cuz they have spent ime and effort establishing themselves as a group but for BP who hardly has 9 songs....I don't know. Hope they all do good as solos and as BP.

Um, actually, it turns out that not only Jennie will debut solo very soon, Jisoo, Rose and Lisa will also debut solo sometime in the very near future. And yes, that means that it's true, it's absolutely 100% true. There's no bullshitting here at all.
