BLACKPINK fans in South Korea haven't been too happy with YG Entertainment recently.
And what makes it worse for the agency is that it involves a neighboring country that has been known to have the worst diplomatic relations with South Korea due to conflicts throughout history.
It turns out that BLACKPINK will be performing their first tour concert in Japan instead of South Korea.
South Korean news agency criticized and compared YG Entertainment to other agencies by pointing out that JYP Entertainment girl group TWICE and SM Entertainment girl group Red Velvet have always performed first in their home country before embarking on their tour.
In addition, the setlist of BLACKPINK's performance is heavily bare in comparison to the setlist of other idols. BLACKPINK only has nine songs if the acoustic version of 'Whistle' doesn't count as a different song from the original.
Reports say that BLACKPINK will be performing covers of other popular songs since they do not have enough of their own songs to give a lengthy performance.
