BLACKPINK will be ending its promotions for its second EP.

According to sources, the six-week promotions for BLACKPINK’s second album “SQUARE TWO” is coming to an end after the group’s appearance on SBS’s Inkigayo on December 11.

After rounding up its official promotions, BLACKPINK will attend the 2016 Seoul Awards Festival. The group will also make appearances in award ceremonies at the end of the year.

“PLAYING WITH FIRE” has set numerous new records: it became no.1 on Billboard’s World Digital Songs chart; ranked high on its World Albums, Heartseekers-Pacific, Heartseekers Albums, Social 50 charts; and entered Canada’s Hot 100 Chart for the first time as a K-pop girl group.

BLACKPINK also won the new artist award at the Asia Artist Awards and the Melon Music Awards and the Best of Next and Music Video awards at the Mnet Asian Music Awards, proving that it is the hottest rookie this year.
