I read a lot of threads about this topic in the past.... like year. And I do agree with BLINKS when they say BLACKPINK need more promotions, not only them but basically ALL YG artist. But from ages being a YG fan something I have clear is NOT believe in whatever YG say if there no teaser, hell not even with the teaser till the actual date. I guest BLINKS really wanted to be optimistic... but come one.. Do any YG girl group have debuted with a full album? NO. 2NE1 first mini album was mostly basically singles they relesed before ( which YG already did with BP japanese album). There is not even a confirmation that is only new 4 songs, but Will I be surprised? No, is basically what he did with 2NE1. Even the full album had singles that were relesed before. Why expect more than what they ever offer?.... I prefere to think we will get the same ... and be surprised if some bonus happen ( and not only with YG, cuz I just recived a surprise from SM with SHINee 10 years anniversary celebration). The hiatus time. All YG artist have long hiatus between releses, actually will be a a very plesant surprise for me if Blackpink have their comeback with just 1 year hiatus, But as well I understand that New fans that support other groups that have more comebacks in a year feel is a long preriod. Also Teddy is the one that basically creates YG girl groups, he select the fial members, select the name ( is not a surprise that his label name BLACKLABEL), produce and write the music....is like his personal project. Honestly I think that the reason he does not have social media, he never wanted to deal with Blackjacks/Blinks complains. Different from all 3 YG boy groups that came to be from reality tv, all of them produce their music, and all of them have atleast 2 years hiatus with each album (full/mini). A suggetion? Dont believe in rumors till everything is confirmed ( basically dont waste energy on rumors). You can keep bothering YG social media, thats completly fine/ normal ( I think thats his job any how), but dont atack other YG artist for getting a comeback before them. And dont expect everything you wish will be granted ( remember Bigbang only have 3 album in 12 years). If in the end you dont want ro buy the album, cuz you feel robbed. Dont feel you are obligated to do so, just cuz you are a fan. Is your money... do whatever you want with it.
