company stans, go away or i will bite you
blinks and rosé (and for all we know, the other girls or teddy) have been pushing yg to finally give us a rosé solo for years. the one that was “in the works” in 2018. to come out in 2019. to be forgotten until fans start publicly humiliating the company in 2020. then pushed again to 2021.
i don’t think yg is very happy about anything going on here. this just seems like a waste of resources to them. and korean companies do this thing, that i think is happening here.
it’s a slimy thing to do, but unfortunately common and very manipulative. this seems like a classic set up for this bs so i’m upset i didn’t expect it.
the girls contract ends in 2023. i don’t doubt that the company knows if they don’t start acting like bp mean ANYTHING to them, they’ll all leave. combined with all the public pressure to start fulfilling promises.... they’re being forced to give her a solo. which was our (blinks) plan.
but they don’t want her to realize her potential as a soloist. they don’t want her to make a name separate from the group. they don’t want her to garner any sort of solo fanbase or reputation because that makes it a much safer business decision FOR HER if she decides to leave.
if you purposefully sabotage her solo, she can’t reach her full potential, so she’s less likely to feel secure outside of yg and blackpink. if they gave her proper promo and solo release, she would start to have these things. it would be easier for her to get her career going after yg. so to prevent there from being an “after yg”, they try to ruin her solo career before it begins.
they want her to believe her “best chance” at her dreams, her “biggest chance for opportunity”, her “full potential” is blackpink and yg ONLY.
it’s really gross of them to do this, but like i said, this happens kind of a lot. and hers is the perfect case of it. mistreated idol gets any opportunity that would give them feet to stand on taken from away them, so they keep depending on their company.
it’s a western release time and date, western producer.... but with no western distributions or western promo. no korean promo either. the teasers and promo have been lackluster and sparse. they gave us half of the solo songs (aka 1/2) at the blackpink concert WAY before the project dropped. only 2 songs instead of the promised mini album. no collabs or features. nothing.
jennie got a whole video series like 10 episodes long to document the mv shooting, her concert stage, her music show stages, her celebration of the solo drop, the vlive before the release day, etc.
but they wanted her to get a big name. they wanted to get the name of the group out there, they wanted to get the face of the group to be an it girl and all this stuff. their careers were much younger, then.
they don’t want that now. blackpink is a well known group, now. what they want is to punish rosé and blinks. they want to sabotage her career because their contract is ending soon and they want her to resign it. they want her to not garner any fans as a solo act. her fans and support can come from yg and blackpink ONLY. and they’re trying to ensure it.
i wish kpop companies would stop doing this to their entertainers because it’s not fair. same with actors. i’ve seen them ruin parts of an entertainers career, just to make them company dependent. usually it’s to mistreated entertainers in companies they want to leave, and contracts expiring soon. just like this.
