KUALA LUMPUR — Fans of K-pop girl group Blackpink are stepping up their game to make sure the quartet’s management label YG Entertainment bows down to their demands.

K-pop entertainment news portal Koreaboo reported that the group’s fans, better known as Blinks, had placed advertisements all over Seoul in locations with high foot traffic.

“The advertisements are situated around buildings, subway stations and airports among others,” the portal reported.

The fans are hoping to use these advertisements to seek better treatment for the group.

Blackpink was slated to have two comebacks in 2019, but these did not materialise. The group also lacks a full length album, solo projects for all four of its members and broadcast appearances.

This is in spite of the group’s immense popularity and the millions of dollars they have earned for YG Entertainment with their songs.

Previously, Blackpink fans mounted a digital billboard airing the group’s music videos on loop outside YG’s building in Seoul to show their displeasure. MALAY MAIL
