BLACKPINK Fans Petition YGE For Better Treatment- Before Moving Onto Boycott

Despite a successful comeback in June, 2018 with their new title track "Ddu du Ddu du" and first mini-album titled 'Square Up' that set a number of records both in the kpop industry and among YG artists, Blackpink remain a 2.5 year old group with only 9 songs to their name and no full physical album in the near future. To make matters worse, other YG group acts have received 2, 3, 4 comebacks in 2018 alone, with full albums and repacks, while Blackpink’s only other activities as artists and idols in 2018 were their Japanese tour and two concerts in Seoul, all of which were a 1.5 to 2 hour ordeals where they had to sing their 9 songs twice and do covers of other artists to fill up the time slot.


YG Entertainment has announced their tentative plans for the remainder of 2018 and upcoming 2019 on two separate occasions and yet not a word has been mentioned about Blackpink releasing any new music. The only Blackpink update the fans have received was their world tour that will kick off in Asia and is expected to continue in North America – all with 9 songs.


Fed up with YGE’s obvious mistreatment of the group and the members’ subtle and not so-subtle expressions of frustration over lack of music, blinks have tried a number of ways to voice their concern and frustration at YGE and YG himself. First, blinks took to a hashtag #TreatBlackpinkBetter, both on Twitter and Instagram, listing all the mistreatment and failed promises that Blackpink and the fans have encountered since the group’s pre-debut days to present day. Second, blinks are planning on mass e-mailing to every public e-mail address of YGE staff and people responsible for management, oversight, and artistic development of Blackpink throughout an extended period of time. A preview of the email can be seen below-


Following the hashtag and email launch, blinks took further action by starting a petition. Their petition, started on http://change.org on December 12, 2018 has already amassed over 17,000 signatures and has a goal of 25,000 signatures that it should achieve in no time(https://www.change.org/p/yg-entertainment-treat-bl...)


Blinks’ frustration with Blackpink’s lack of music and proper treatment as idols is understandable considering the enormous local and international popularity that the group has enjoyed since their debut, which keeps increasing with every (limited) release. Their fandom’s growth has doubled during a year long hiatus between their digital single "As If Its Your Last" and "Ddu du ddu du" and going off their youtube subscribers, "Ddu du ddu du" launched them to a whole new level of success.


For starters, "Ddu du ddu du" became the highest peaking song by a Korean girl group in the Billboard Hot 100, placing at #55. Blackpink are the only other Kpop girl group to chart on the BB 100.


Their first and only mini album 'Square Up' is currently the best selling 2018 gg album on Hanteo and it also became the best selling debut album for a girl group in Hanteo’s history. Square Up also earned highest first week sales on Hanteo for an album from YGE, beating YG acts such as Big Bang and 2NE1.


Ddu du ddu du currently holds the record for the biggest amount of hourly Perfect All Kills (93) among girl groups, also making Blackpink to be the first girl group to get a Perfect All Kill after the chart reforms. "Ddu du ddu du" also holds the record for the highest Melon unique listeners in the first 24 hours for a girl group (1, 015, 669 ULS).


These are just a fraction of accomplishments that BP has achieved with "Ddu du ddu du" and 'Square up', and that is not counting their previous records and accomplishments with their previous songs and Jennie’s Solo, which was released a month ago. Solo’s remarkable achievements are also attributable to the current success and popularity that Blackpink is receiving in South Korea and abroad.


Thus, YGE’s inaction and seeming unwillingness to promote Blackpink accordingly and provide them with tools and opportunities to release more music is puzzling and frustrating. Blinks hope that large numbers on the petition might help sway YGE’s mind and allow Blackpink release music and do things that other idols get to do. Otherwise, blinks are prepared to take more drastic actions such as boycotting Blackpink related merchandise and activities and taking more concrete action that goes beyond social media.

YG did the same thing with 2Ne1. They released songs but hardly ever any albums and then he had them do solos instead, while trying to get a US push for his favorite member. Same thing happening now.



It's weird how YG treats his female artists this way (remember Lee Hi and Gummy being locked in their dungeons for years and years) while the male artists have loads of comebacks.

How bad is your memory? BIg bang are 3 years older than 2ne1 and only have one more full album than they do and that one took 4 years to put out


Big bang did the exact same thing, hell their very first album had a g dragon solo on it, in fact all of the members except TOP have had solo tours.


PLus ikon and winner got shipped off to japan after they debut, it took a year before they actually released new music. Blackpink are at least releasing music yearly and are nowhere near as milked as those 2 are


Not to mention se7en was also in that dungeon for 4 years.


Even if what you are implying is true, it still would make sense why they comeback more since they less work since they write their own hits.

in korea, hardly anyone does full albums though if they are idols. Big Bang released plenty of mini-albums while neither 2ne1 nor BP have released mini-albums even close to the same rate as big bang did it. Your comparison is void.

seven was a special case though, since he was in the military for 2 years, had a huge scandal for years and chose to act instead of releasing music.

Don't compare 2NE1 (the queens) to Blackpink (wanna-be 2NE1) please. You're really disrespecting 2NE1 here.


Some of the members had to do solo stuff, because Bom's "drug scandal" (which wasn't really a scandal, but the media made one out of it) happened. Just another situation YG handled really badly. Dara re-established her acting career and went for variety shows, Minzy eventually left and CL made her American debut with "Lifted".

Tbh. they might be so successful because they have so few songs (dunno how can you stan a group that hardly makes music, bur that's beside the point). Their hit songs are kind of similar, easy and simple, and people would catch on that if they had more. It's easier to write a hit song here and there, than to consistently release good music.

I agree with both of your comments. BP has a large following of fans because of what few songs they have, and the POTENTIAL is what sustains them. A group not from the big 3 companies would never be given this much patience and understanding if a 2 1/2 year old group only managed to squeeze across 9 songs for fans. YG'S concept and most certainly his handling of BP is wrong. He should never have marketed them as the second coming of 2NE1. EVERYTHING about them has a 2NE1 "been there and done that" thing. The styling, music "badass" vibe is all 2NE1. BP are the 1st girl group to debut after an AMAZING group like 2NE1 and all he has done is try to duplicate them. I love BP but this is beyond ridiculous and simply not a smart business move to alienate them from the music scene the way he is. I get that YG like his artists to have an exclusive nature about them, and you don't see them all over variety shows, but they ultimately have to put out music in order to survive in this industry.

YG is a total fraud, he constantly breaks promises to BLINKS and lies about almost everything from comeback dates, to getting fair promotion, albums, music production, and solo activities. It's become so ridiculous at this point and all BLINKS want to do is support BLACKPINK! But how many times is he going to milk the girls while giving us the bare minimum and mistreating them? It's sick, really. They're a two year group going on three years and still don't have a full album and that's all blinks have been asking for! We don't want BLACKPINK soap, BLACKPINK belts or BLACKPINK socks we want BLACKPINK to have a full album and show this industry how succesful and empowering women can really be. But YG won't even let them reach their full potential and instead he keeps them locked away in his dungeon and uses them as display dolls whenever he needs to promote his products like his new Dance Academy or KRUNK. His boygroups get treated so much better and it's not fair to the girls at all! They worked hard to debut just like his boygroups did but they're not getting treated like artists.

Sure they have different number of songs

But remember that number of comebacks is also important to the public.

BP has had 4 all promoted comebacks

iKON has had 5 (+1 unpromoted single)

Winner has had 5 and will have 6 by next week

Both iKON and Winner are older groups then BP

iKON had 14 songs(1 was a unpromoted single and 1 was a remix of a song) by the time they were 2.5 years into their career. This was 2 comebacks(including debut)

Winner had only two comebacks with an 18 month break inbetween by the time they were a 2.5 year group.


iKON ended up using never released songs at their concerts to fill time.

I wish blinks would realize that they are kind of lucky. Sure BP doesn't have the same amount of songs as iKON and Winner but comeback wise, they are pretty equal.

In their first 2.5 years of debut iKON and Winner had two comebacks(one being the debut). iKON also had one unpromted single. BP had three comebacks, Square One Square two and AIYL. Now iKON has had a total of 5 comebacks and Winner has had 5-6 compared to BP 4.

My point is maybe BP should try self producing instead of sitting around waiting for Teddy to make a bunch of songs for them. Because iKON and WINNER self produce, they're able to push for YG to listen to the songs and he recognises the work put into them. YG knows a hit when he hears one otherwise, and tbh he only started treating them better after Really Really and Love Scenario. BP was loved by YG from the start so idk why Blinks are mad when the boys were treated worse loool

Not sure if it's a lack of song writers in YGE, but it seems groups with a dominant song writer in the group release more comeback. Big bang got GD and Ikon got BI, but I'm not sure who was the song writer in 2ne1 or Blackpink. Either way I hope blackpink release more songs. YG just need to hire more people to get it done.

Also, the fact that they can't write their own music and majority of their groups can... it would only made sense that they are able to put out more songs and full more well rounded cds. Their overall singing and dancing skills are still being baked so... yeah, for my Blinks are asking for too much too soon. But this is only my pov. I remember how YG left Winner 2 years without a comeback after their debut, now that's something strong enough to do a huge boicot.

Nope, you're wrong. That 'mediocre song' you talk about it's not "Gee", when that song came out SNSD 'exploded' in terms of popularity but they were already a force to recognize, but at that moment they became massive... The song that made every company with its girls groups try harder was "Into The New World", a song that is called the 'basis for all girl groups singing and dancing', a song that every single girl group has covered since then. It's not about 'promotion', it's about what it takes to perform that song live which is, according to some choreographers and vocal trainers, one of the hardest ones to do live. And YG doesn't work that way (relying on 'promotions'), never have and never will. He always relied on promises to keep the fans eager for the releases, promises that most of the time aren't fulfilled. He knows their fandom, and all of the YG stans in general, will keep on supporting his artists no matter how disappointed can become after his lies.

Personal preference. Hard to say who has better or what's a better song. If it appeals to the general public more and more people like it then that would be a more successful song. I like 2ne1 songs over blackpinks and SNSD songs but I like SNSD over 2ne1 and blackpink. In general I like SNSD more. And yes they appear on more shows programs and yeah promoted better. Popularity isn't just based on the songs. I'm probably one of the rare ones who doesn't care for blackpink. They look too cute putting on a fierce image they just doesn't seem to suit. I don't know LoL but if they can make the money and stay on top why do they need more music 2 song a year does the job for them.

The thing is, all of the other YG idol groups actively make their own songs, so if YG see the songs prospect, the groups will get a higher chance of having comeback so often. The problem with BP is that they can't make their own song. They have to wait for Teddy, while he has a lot on his own plate as well.

They constantly being send to attend fashion show event and doing social media partnership post.. And after that they will release solo song for each members..


I mean, they already one of the top group.. Other top girlgroups work here and there but still release mini albums..


Bigbang era and now is different.. Being exclusive and not releasing any music.. hmmm.. Even bigbang not releasing music, GD and Taeyang and Daesug fill it up with solo release/activities..


YG marketing strategy is just confusing.. I mean, they do have restaurants, club, and other business ventures to support their financial, but as agent for popular artist like Blackpink, they supposed to put more effort in to the girls..

I LOWKEY HATE TO SAY IT, because I’m a total YG stan and love everyone there, but BP is clearly more popular than WINNER and iKON(at least internationaly. And don’t get me wrong I love all of them) and YG is just gonna sit over here like, “Ok pls promote with these 9 songs u have to your name and leave me tf alone”. The sad part is BP doesn’t produce their own music while they should at least try, because that’s probably why iKON, WINNER, and MINO all got to have a comeback. BECAUSE THEY AT LEAST HELPED IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING THE SONG. So YG, pls let BP’s music talent shine through. And pls, DO SOMETHING ABOUT JENNIE BEING “LAZY”. I’m a blink but I’m sick and tired of her behavior and idrc if she’s injured or tired or jet-lag, bc BTS and EXO and GFriend and RED VELVET are too, but do u see them slacking off on stage? No. SO PLS YG, RELEASE AN ALBUM FOR BP

the thing is the same with both girls groups that they don't create their music, every think they buy! If we look at boy groups, they all doing by themselfs, and just arrangements do others... so can you imagine how much cost to make full album with best producers. Ok if there is not case in money, how about group members, how much they put work, ideas, effort for next comeback?

Just please don't reply biased messages, facts only. I know they work hard, all idols work hard, but i need fackts

Let's put it this way, YG do this because he, and the company, knows that despite they have only 9 songs and that no matter in how many formats and editions they could release them, Blinks will still buy them, even when that means to have the same songs several times. Even with the concerts, they know that even when they played only those songs, menaning just barely 45 minutes of 'original' content, they will pay its tickets for it. Just as it happened with 2NE1... Also, don't forget that this is the way YGE has ALWAYS worked with many of its artists.

Damn, Blinks are the most cancerous fandom I've seen. I thought it was SM, but not anymore. Teddy can only produce so many quality songs. Seems like this fandom doesn't give a crap about music at all, and are just pretending that blackpink needs more music. You all just want BP to be a generic mass produced idol. Just taking co... songs from anyone.

There is a lot of Indonesian Blinks always mocking Twice everytime they make a comeback. and it's not even because they are worried but it's pure hate saying Twice is afraid will be lost & flop if they don't do comeback often. LMAO, but now here we are seeing the fandom making petition asking for more musics. but anyway, Good Luck!! I hope YG Ent. considers all Blink wishes wisely ^^

if blackpink is so popular, why would yg not promote them? that would generate more earnings for the company.

do they have other plans for the girls' future careers?

YG is smart. Don't have to do much and making big bucks. Why release more songs or invest anymore money if you can have huge fan base and just have like 2 song a year. Milk the money out of minimum song release. Jennie is honestly super bored looking, like deflated and just really boring to watch. She doesn't even have much facial expressions anymore, her live performances are so lacking in energy. I don't know if she's bored of their very few songs or she just doesn't want to be in the group. Literally look so unfair when the other girls are whipping their hair and dancing hard and she's just not moving much. Is she unhappy? I wonder what's going on. She seem to be way more energetic and enthusiastic when doing her solo song. So hmmm....

Lmao. Obviously I stan Black Pink waaay more than I support YGE, but this is just dumb. This just feeds into the idea that fans are immature and spoiled. Black Pink in the past month alone held a concert, announced a tour, released Jennie's "SOLO" single, released various videos on VLive, and has Jennie in Michuri. We're more fed now than we were a few months ago. YG also promised solo releases from the other members and BP are set to feature in a couple of variety shows in the next couple of days so there's that to look out for. I know we only have 9 songs, but nothing will ever be good enough if you're YG. BLINKs recently just complained about Black Pink's poor wardrobe in their live performances and their lackluster stage at Melon Music Awards. Even if we got another comeback in the next 2-3 months, I predict that we'll just demand more.

Blinks are actually the worst fandom right know, even beating the army. why does it matter with how many comebacks other groups in yg has had and which group has had 4 comebacks? they are the only group in yg who doesnt write songs themself, they are probably allowed to if they want, but yg whouldnt release it unless its actually good. They have had a really good comeback with 5 good songs. and yg is not going to release a song if its bad. if they had 10 comebacks a year, and only 1 of the comebacks is actually good, you wouldnt be a fan. even though i like blackpink, i kinda wish he would give the group away to another company so blinks can actually see how yg is the one making them so atractive

Well YG said they have a ton of songs ready.. So your point is invalid.. And again.. Picking the worst fandom is a personal preference unless a voting is done.. And if YG is the reason Blackpink are so "attractive", what happened to their lesser known groups? Look.. I'm not a hater.. But as you have given your opinion.. I have the right to question its authenticity..

Songs are good, it's just comebacks are too slow. Smaller companies even have more comebacks. This forces me to follow other groups while waiting. And the wait is abnormally long for a top company, makes it seem like yg is so cheap or corrupt cuz like where is all his money going to then. YG doesn't have to copy JYP who throws cash on survival idol shows or new headquarters... When BP do comeback it's been so long that it's like digging up a sarcophagus in egypt like it's that long you tend to say what took them so long?

You make a good point. I dont necessarily agree that blinks are the worst fandom but its true that afaik, no one in BP writes/produces music.

When I see just how much work Twice is doing these days, I almost prefer that YGE restricts BP activity. Seeing the fancam of Twice' in Guam was kind of heartbreaking. I'd be happier to see BP healthier and maybe a little restless to work.
