The South Korean girl group “BLACKPINK” is composed of Jisoo, Jennie, Korean-New Zealander Rosé and Thai member Lisa. The contracts of the four members with “YG Entertainment” expired on August 8. Rumors of the four members changing jobs have caused a lot of noise. Today, Korean media “Culture Ilbo” reported that YG has negotiated with four people to continue activities as a group. Two people have already signed a group contract, and it will be made public after the other two members sign the contract.
As for “BLACKPINK”‘s personal contract, it was previously revealed that Lisa had twice violated YG’s request for a renewal fee of 50 billion won (approximately NT$1.22 billion). On September 15, YG’s stock price plummeted due to this, with a drop of as much as 9.79%. , it was also reported that a Thai company offered 100 billion won (approximately NT$2.45 billion) to poach employees.

It was revealed that Jennie and Jisoo will set up a one-person company and become their own bosses; Rosé previously had a private meeting with Ron Perry, CEO of Columbia Records in the United States, and it is speculated that she intends to develop in the United States. However, some industry insiders revealed that although some people are beckoning them with a signing bonus of tens of billions of won (more than NT$240 million), some members believe that continuing to cooperate with YG will be more efficient, so they are still discussing it.
“BLACKPINK”, which can be called a human money printing machine, earned 180 billion won (approximately NT$4.41 billion) from ticket sales during its one-year global tour “BORN PINK” with a total of 54 performances. It’s no wonder that YG couldn’t get it In addition to individual contracts, we must also strive to protect the group contract, so that fans who are worried about the disbandment of the four people can temporarily feel at ease.
