Blackpink members rule! Yayyy! Hold up, wait, I may be moving to quickly with the hyperbole. Most of you probably don’t even know who Blackpink is and thus wondering how or why such a bold statement is being made in the first place. Well, without further delay…
Who is Blackpink members?
Blackpink members is an all female Kpop group from South Korea and consist of 22-year-old Lisa, 22-year-old Rose, 23-year-old Jennie and 24-year-old Jisoo; and together they are a dynamic rapping, singing, dancing and entertaining quartet!
Jisoo is lead vocals with Rose on main vocals. Lisa has the sub vocals and Jennie is the lead rapper! They all are great dancers, with a big debate about who’s better (see below).

Blackpink Takes Over Coachella
This writer first became acquainted with Blackpink during the fun music festival Coachella back in April. Although I wasn’t there, you could sense a buzz in the streams awaiting their simulcast performance on a billboard in Times Square.
Blackpink had the honor of being the first female K-pop performers to play Coachella and the group had so much hype that their name on the poster appeared higher than other well-known artist like Kacey Musgraves, Ella Mai and several other of the day’s names more familiar to US listeners.
Controversial Blackpink Music
Domestic Violence Blackpink
Although Blackpink members are receiving a lot of love, the Kpop group Black pink caused a lot of controversy with the release of the CD as many viewed the dual cover as supporting domestic violence.
“even if the photo cards were supposed to represent metaphorical pain or fighting with oneself, the way it looks is still bad, especially with a song about toxic love. ”
Many Instagram users stated their dislike for Blackpink music label YG use of symbols on the dual album and photo cards:
i love you guys so much, but i think that even if the photo cards were supposed to represent metaphorical pain or fighting with oneself, the way it looks is still bad, especially with a song about toxic love. that same message could’ve been expressed in many other ways that didn’t make an aesthetic out of facial bruises or bleeding.
Can someone please explain what part of this promotes domestic violence???
@squishy_strxberries on the photo cards for the album*
@its_rejxne the cuts and bruises on their faces lmao
i love everything about this album but the photo cards AINT IT!!! domestic violence will N E V E R be an aesthetic!!!
Please apologize for the culture appropriation and misconception of the glorification of abuse. These aren’t acceptable and a lot of people suffer. An apology for all the stuff you guys did isn’t that hard.
Anyone upset with the PCs saying their promoting domestic violence can send their PC cards to me ?♀️?♀️?♀️?♀️
? just because of your discusting photocard i don’t buy it really you want to destroy Blackpink like 2NE1….
