We knew this already but more hype for the girls
I find it very unusual for an idol group to only go on music shows to promote. This came to mind after I saw Seulgi and Irene’s promotion schedule this week, and it hit me that Blackpink has only ever been on music shows so far.
The girls have been on hiatus for more than a year, and it looks like they’ve had plenty of free time lately just based on Rosé’s recent activity, being able to go out with Hyeri, going to the salon, etc. I know rest is important, but they’ve been resting for months now, and it should be a given that comeback season has them booked and busy.
Is it because YG wants Blackpink to have that “exclusive” image? I really miss seeing the girls go on radio and variety shows. Wish we could see that type of content from them again. It wouldn’t hurt to widen their Korean fanbase, and I think the girls are itching to do usual idol activities.
Anyone else feel nervous and uneasy about their comeback? I want more than anything to see them succeed, be praised, and be happy with what they’re going to be releasing and performing. The long wait plus what seemed like endless pushbacks only served to heighten anticipation which, if the HYLT pre-release was any measure, could prove too high to be actually met satisfactorily.
Everyone’s expecting them to break out of the style/concept blackhole. HYLT isn’t much assurance that they will succeed on this. I fear that they will get swept up by the tide of expectations and whatnot. I doubt their sales and influence would tank regardless of whether the releases flop though.
Now, it all feels more personal. More than anything else, I want to see them growing and just having fun. I want them to not constantly be on the receiving end of hate and mostly negative feedback. I want them to feel confident and prove themselves as industry staples. This kinda feels like their make-it-or-break-it gig. I really hope they make it.
same sentiments for my dearest Rosé’s solo
- would be nice to see what KBlinks think about this, too!
Long story short my friend is a massive fan of BlackPink, and it’s his birthday. I know this is a super long shot but I was thinking it would be nice to get a birthday wish from BlackPink for him. Anyone have any idea about how one could go about doing this??
I just joined this subreddit, and i need to ask you all whether or not this has been talked abt: are you all also picking up hellenistic/biblical imagery in the HYLT video? maybe the hellenistic part is more obvious (e.g, Nike of Samothrace at the beginning, the Trojan Horses), but anyone else picking up some biblical symbolism (e.g, Rosé’s “fall and resurrection”, Jisoo’s positioning in her first appearance)? just curious
So as we know YG promised “to release the second single on a special format in either July or August.” With TREASURE debuting in July, I think it’s pretty obvious the second single will be coming next month in August as opposed to this month.
However, the interesting part is YG’s emphasis on the term “special format.” I think this implies that it won’t be a simple comeback like How You Like That, but something different and bigger. The only possible things I could think of are a collab (Aripink plz) or something to do with their anniversary on the 8th of August.
