The future of BLACKPINK (comprising Rosé, Jennie, Jisoo, and Lisa) and their agency, YG Entertainment, remains uncertain regarding the renewal of their contracts.
Since their debut in August 2016, BLACKPINK has been in negotiations with YG Entertainment for the renewal of their seven-year exclusive contract, which expired in August this year. Despite the passage of around three months, there has been no official announcement from either party regarding the contract renewal.
Rumors have circulated suggesting that three members of BLACKPINK (Lisa, Jennie, and Jisoo) might not renew their contracts with YG Entertainment, leaving Rosé as the exception. There have been speculations about Jennie and Jisoo possibly establishing their own solo agencies.
Responding to these rumors, YG Entertainment officially informed Korean media on September 25 that there was no confirmation yet about the renewal of BLACKPINK's contract and their future activities. Since then, there has been no further official statement from YG Entertainment. Meanwhile, the four members of BLACKPINK continue their individual activities, including photo shoots and endorsements, without addressing the renewal of their contracts.
In a recent interview, Thai actress Diana Flippo, a close friend of Lisa, mentioned that she doesn't have information about whether Lisa and YG will renew their contract. She emphasized that she has not discussed this matter with Lisa and will know about it when the time comes.
Over the past seven years, BLACKPINK has solidified its position as a leading K-pop group with chart-topping hits such as "Whistle," "Boombayah," "STAY," "Kill This Love," "How You Like That," "Lovesick Girls," and "Pink Venom."
This year, BLACKPINK affirmed its global status through a large-scale world tour. At the "BLACKPINK WORLD TOUR BORN PINK FINALE IN SEOUL," held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on September 16th and 17th, Jennie expressed gratitude: "This year marks the 7th anniversary of our debut. Thank you, BLINK, for your continuous support and love. We'll strive to remain a fantastic BLACKPINK. I love you and thank you," she conveyed.
