BREAKING
All members of BLACKPINK renew contract with YG Entertainment

AKP STAFF

On December 6 KST, YG Entertainment, the agency of K-pop sensation BLACKPINK, made an announcement stating, "We have successfully reached an agreement within our board of directors regarding the signing of exclusive group contracts for all four members of BLACKPINK, our esteemed artists."

BLACKPINK's contract negotiations with YG Entertainment have been ongoing since their previous contracts expired in August. While the decision was made to continue group activities, individual contracts for each member have yet to be finalized. Notably, according to Munhwa Ilbo, two members, including Lisa, have already chosen to part ways with YG Entertainment, while discussions with the remaining two members are still in progress.

BLACKPINK wrapped up their highly successful world tour, 'Born Pink,' in September. The tour drew an impressive 1.8 million attendees, generating cumulative sales nearing 300 billion won. Even without individual exclusive contracts in place, it is expected that YG Entertainment and each member will continue to reap substantial profits from BLACKPINK's group activities.

I feel like this was expected, that all the Blackpink members would renew with YG for group activities but manage their own individual activities. I think they all do love each other and love being part of Blackpink.

So two members - likely Lisa and Jennie -- are already gone and this renewal is for "group activities", meaning they're doing the Girls Generation strategy.

Using SNSD as a guide, the next Blackpink group comeback will be in 2026 for their 10 year anniversary, then 2031 for their 15th. 🤣
