BLACKPINK‘s agency, YG Entertainment, is facing backlash from BLINKs, following news reports about an upcoming girl group.
According to an exclusive report from SPOTVnews, YG Entertainment is preparing a project for the launch of a new girl group, with the goal of debuting them in the second half of 2020. The agency also plans to debut a new boy group, TREASURE, later this year.
It is true that we are planning to debut a new girl group. We will provide more details later with our official statement.
Right now, we are focusing on preparing BLACKPINK and WINNER’s new albums.

Many BLINKs are not happy about the news, stating that YG Entertainment should properly manage BLACKPINK before shifting their attention to a new girl group. It has been nine months since BLACKPINK’s last comeback. Their second EP, Kill This Love, was released in April, 2019.
blinks have every right to be mad <3 we waited for a year, invest our money on everything related to blackpink, went to their tour concerts which is now the only tour by a gg to gross over $50M but what do we get in return? yg's lies, ktl dolls and photobooks

YG Debuting a new girl group when they can’t even manage BLACKPINK and give the girls a proper comeback or give them a full album or let them appear on variety shows and music shows is fucking bullshit. I fucking hate yg

Some fans have even compared the current situation to the “treatment” (lack of promotions, delayed comebacks) YG Entertainment’s disbanded girl group 2NE1 received. 2NE1 officially disbanded in 2016, months after BLACKPINK’s debut.
blackjacks in 2016: NO NEW GG WE WANT 2NE1 PROPER TREATMENT! CL ALBUM!
blinks in 2020: NO NEW GG WE WANT BLACKPINK PROPER TREATMENT! ROSÉ SOLO!

BLINK’s ire is in no way directed at the new girl group. In fact, many fans feel sorry for the new girl group and are worried that they will not be properly taken care of by their agency.
blackpink deserve so much better than being treated like crap and im so sorry for that new gg that will debut under yg y’all already deserve better

I actually feel sorry for YG’s new gg. If they are treated anything like Blackpink or 2ne1 then they are in for a hard time. How sad
