BLACKPINK’s fans will be able to see a lot more of the quartet later this year.
According to sources at YG Entertainment, BLACKPINK will make a comeback on November 1 and, afterwards, make many TV appearances.
The girl group debuted on August 8 with “WHISTLE” and “BOOMBAYAH” and topped the monthly chart. The album was a remarkable success considering that BLACKPINK is only a rookie, and BLACKPINK was able to establish a strong presence in the Korean music scene.
In fact, BLACKPINK was a group that received spotlight even before its debut. YG announced that it is going to make a girl group that has both the looks and the talent for the first time in 20 years and named the group BLACKPINK.
Many were curious and had high expectations for the music of YG’s new girl group. YG named the group BLACKPINK to mean “Looks aren’t everything”, and BLACKPINK also won recognition for its great music by dominating the charts throughout August.
Fans are looking forward to seeing BLACKPINK again of course but also looking forward to listening to its new music. And they only have to wait until November 1 to listen to BLACKPINK’s new singles.
Therefore, it’s not surprising that the fans and the general public want to see more of the monster rookie. Comments on BLACKPINK mostly consist of complaints that the group isn’t doing enough TV appearances.
Indeed, unlike other rookies that appear in TV shows often for promotional purposes, BLACKPINK only went on SBS’s Inkigayo once a week, five times in total, even though it was dominating the charts.
On this matter, YG commented, “BLACKPINK received a lot of love, more than we’d expected. After they release a new single on November 1, they will be appearing on Mnet’s MCountdown along with their usual appearances on Inkigayo. Also, we’re considering doing variety shows such as MBC Everyone’s Weekly Idol.”
It’s good to see YG making an effort to satisfy the fans, and fans are looking forward to seeing BLACKPINK doing more diverse promotions.
