As BLACKPINK’s global stardom takes center stage, all eyes are on their contract renewal with YG Entertainment. Amid the swirling rumors, Lisa has left fans puzzled by handling her schedule without a staff in tow.
Later this month, Lisa will be breaking records as the first K-pop idol to perform at Crazy Horse Paris, one of the top three cabarets in the City of Lights. What’s catching fans off guard is Lisa’s decision to jet off to Paris solo—no staff, no manager. However, she was seen with her mother, who is accompanying her to France.
On the 24th, Lisa was seen departing Incheon Airport for Paris, completely unaccompanied. Neither staff, bodyguards, nor a manager was in sight. Lisa even kept her departure under wraps, without alerting the media or fans. Once she landed in Paris, she was spotted with only a handful of local security staff.
BLACKPINK is currently in contract talks with YG Entertainment, and speculation is flying thick and fast. YG remains tight-lipped, refusing to give a definitive answer. Adding fuel to the fire, Lisa’s solo venture abroad has fans crafting their own theories left and right.
Just yesterday, one media outlet reported that Jennie and Jisoo are planning to launch their own agency while still in talks with YG about BLACKPINK’s activities. YG’s response was once again: “Nothing is confirmed; discussions are ongoing.”
Since their debut in 2016, BLACKPINK celebrated their 7th anniversary last month, which coincides with their contract renewal discussions. Their recent world tour spanned over a year, reaching 34 cities with 66 shows, and captivated nearly 1.8 million fans. With BLACKPINK leading the global K-pop craze and rewriting history, everyone’s eager to see if their bond with YG will continue to hold.
