Following Insufficient News Regarding BLACKPINK, Fans Launch #BLINKSBLACKOUT

Following a series of disappointments from YG entertainment, BLACKPINK fans have taken a further step in their actions to gain the companies attention. Their latest attempt, a hashtag (#BLINKSBLACKOUT), also involves fans changing their profile picture on social media to a black image, hence the name BLINKSBLACKOUT. Fans so far have been unsuccessful in their attempts to gain traction on their demands, which include but are not limited to: at least two comebacks a year, more promotions, and a new stylist.


YG entertainment has currently revealed their plans for 2019, and fans of BLACKPINK are highly concerned as no news regarding the release of music for the group was announced. On the other hand, the recent news of YG Entertainment's season 2 of its survival show "Treasure Box" has fans even more concerned, especially since season 2 will be focusing on the establishment of a girl group. Fans are confused as to why YG entertainment would debut a new girl group when it seems he struggles to manage the only current one on his roster.


If no information is given regarding BLACKPINK and their plans for 2019, fans have hinted at taking action even further than social media.

I feel so sad for the girls... they deserve better. The new girls he will debut also deserve better because I'm sure he won't be able to manage both of them properly when he can't manage even one. I'm honestly getting really worried for BLACKPINK's future 😔

YG can't manage two girl groups at once, actually he's struggling even with one. So is he throwing BP away? Are they too old for him now or smth? It's sad YG doesn't realize that BP are this huge thanks to their dedicated fanbase, not because they're a YG group

he is doing his job nicely, like he always did and like all companies always did...if you would have paid more attention all these years to the actual artists and less hating and wishing male celebrities to die, you would know, that this was always the same in kpop...but thats just you longan lychee, the most disgusting and dumbest sexist trash ever, so not surprised to see you being completely ignorant here about how this business works, just like all the delusional idiots here, only bringing shame to blackpink with their stupidity...

I find it hilarious how these toddlers think they can run YGE better than its owners and manage a group better than Mr. Yang

they can black out their icons, their faces, or their entire lives and YG still wont care. he's a boss, he doesn't take orders from kids

their stylist is great, they are known for their style. Blinks are being so shortsighted, there are groups that have to wear stupid school uniforms and ugly cheap outfits comeback after comeback and BP is literally dripping in luxury brands

They probably want a new stylist due to the fact Jennie gets more lavish outfits.

The new stylist will probably do the same thing. There's always going to be one member that gets better outfits that's life. But overall they all have amazing clothes, clothes that other groups would kill for. I understand wanting a full album, I understand being upset with only one comeback a year but their stylist anf makeup artist work hard and are the best in the biz period.

I honestly get really confused with this. BP is arguably one of the biggest gg of the last two years, with each of their songs they've comeback with being instant massive successes not just in Korea but internationally as well, they win awards, they have been able to do variety shows, they are doing a world stadium tour, & fans of other YG groups complain that they get more attention & funds than the bg's & solo artists like lee hi. When they got a stadium tour people lost their minds because they "didn't deserve it" & were still rookies & how is that fair they get such a big tour with fans agreeing it was too much too soon, they needed more practice, they shouldn't be in stadiums, etc. When they were promoting people got mad at YG for him not letting them show their individual colors but when YG announced each member was having their own individual projects people again lost their minds. People complain he is keeping them in the basement but when they went on variety shows during their down time while working on their albums to promote either as a group or as individuals people complained asking why they were doing variety shows as opposed to having comebacks. Honestly YG can't win. I'm not saying he's the best or anything but there's this really insane amount of hatred for him that isn't justified in so so many ways. Like when people lost their minds (yet again) when YGE retained the best lawyers for his currently lawsuit with that reality show debacle & people literally had no idea what they were talking about & attacking him for taking money away from his artists & staff, how that was an admission of guilt, etc etc & literally were speaking out of their asses because that is NOT how businesses work lol like it literally is business 101 & even though people were completely wrong & were spewing completely inaccurate hateful things, he still got all that hate regardless. I do think they should have more comebacks than once a year, but groups like Twice & NCT being made to comeback multiple multiple times a year with groups who comeback less than that showing fatigue & suffering - I would much rather have the girls not be overworked than have tons of comebacks to simply please me. Fans talk about how we need to protect idols & treat them right yet then complain when they aren't working to the same level as other extremely overworked idols.

For me, I don't mind them only having one or two comebacks in a year. Having more than that is still crazy for me (someone who has been so used to waiting 2 or more years for albums from American artists), but they have to be a "productive" comeback (don't know how else to put it). Don't just give us 1 or 2 songs and call that a comeback. At least give us a mini album or full album for every comeback. They are singers so give them more songs to sing. I still don't know how it's possible that they have been around for a couple of years now and still only have 9 songs to their name (10 if you include Jennie's solo). Still don't know how they put on a concert with that amount of songs. Just give them more material because like you said they are doing stuff. They're limited discography is the biggest issue.

YG is probably on a desperate debuting spree to find the next Big Bang. Even if you're popular, if you're not popular enough to rival Big Bang within a period of time, he'll give up on you and move on to the next one. If that's really the case, that's a really messed up strategy.

A new stylist? Aren't fans happy with BP's unique clothes that cost thousands of dollars? What is a new stylist supposed to change?


And I feel bad for the Black Pink members. Every day they have to wake up seeing negativity from their so called fans. The fans might say that it's not about the girls but about YG, but that's not going to make the girls feel better. They work for the company. Any negativity that is connected to their work in some way will have an effect on their mental state. Negative opinions that surround them will make them feel as they are somehow partially responsible for it, as if it is an attack on them. That's just how the human mind works. Any time they meet fans they will see the fans as somehow unhappy with grievances on their mind. That kind of an atmosphere is not easy to face day in day out, even if the fans insist their complaints are not directed towards the group members.

and the delusional idiots keep on bringing shame to blackpink with their stupidity and ignorance about how their business even works. either idiots who arent able to think, or very new kpop fans, who dont know anything about this business.


if you listened to kpop for a few years, not just since bts got so famous and because of some youtube records, then you would know, that nothing has changed regarding the amount of work the idols get, if its yg or any other idol group. it was always the case, that they brought only around 1 album and maybe 1 single per year, sometimes even in 2 years. they work hard with promoting everywhere, some members become fixed members of certain variety shows or start acting in dramas and movies or write songs for other artists or for themselves later. this is not usa, where they can release a work and live off it for a few years. especially kpop idols are always working hard and dont have that much free time, even when they didnt release some music. you dont see all their hard work and you ask for more, shows how greedy you are and dont even care about your idols staying healthy and then you even blame their boss for it, now imagine how blackpink must feel and no, they definitely wont feel nice about this.


only now, that bigbang isnt able to release something, the other companies work harder, because thats still the group everyone avoids and they know, when they come back, they have to avoid them again. certain groups are now releasing more work than usual, but before bigbang was gone, all the companies did it exactly as i just explained here. nothing to do with bad treatment or such stupid bullshit coming from pathetic delulus.

nor does such a pathetic rumor exist like "yg locks all up in his basement", in the end its business, he is investing a lot in the trainees to make them ready to become idols and if you like it or not, certain people need longer training, but that shows he isnt giving up on them and as long as they are trainees in yg, that means, he is still investing in them. it still costs money even to keep them there, more to train them, if he just wanted to keep them there and doesnt want them to make money, that would be incredibly stupid and doesnt make any sense whatsoever, since he is wasting his money and time for them...if these delulus were able to think, they would have realized that on their own, but as we can see, they cant...
