    The US and UK charts are literally the most difficult charts on the planet for Kpop idols to chart in, you can count the number of solo idols that have charted on the US Hot 100 on two hands (Lisa, Rose, several BTS soloists, Psy and CL). In fact, Lisa did so well with her Hot 100 points apparently that she would have placed in the top 60 if she had debuted just a week earlier (this is just something i read, dunno how true this is i dont follow Hot 100 at all).


    While she's making history in the US, UK and the world (#2 on Billboard 200 including the US), Lisa couldnt even get Koreans to play her song ONCE, she had less UL during initial 24hrs than freaking rookie groups like StayC and Aespa. Rose had 436K UL after 24 hours, Lisa had 166k UL.


    How is it that the only country on the planet that a Kpop idol is flopping in with a fucking Korean song is....Korea?

  • She is killing it everywhere except sk and is probably one of the richest idols out there with her dozen high profile cfs. Idk why even take sk into consideration as a metric to her success when they know what's going on. I hope yg and lisa just ignores them as a whole.

    Ice-like eyes, breaking me in two



  • No foreign member from any group from the 3r gen has chart well, idk second gen but aianthink aside from Henry from suju all the others didn't chart well either


    It's not a rarity but what it's expected

  • Racism and YG incompetency. Like put her on some k shows. K blinks are racist. Look at Rose success on k charts with a mediocre song compared to lisa superior song. The fandom alone should have gotten top 30 on melon.

  • God why this has to be a discussion when YG did nothing for her?


    Also, I'm tired of all this blaming Korean narrative. How many ULs did Lisa got in Melon? How can you expect Koreans to know about the song when Blackpink fans don't support her and YG didn't even bother to promote her on variety shows and stuff?


    Lisa is not even highlighted enough pre her solo era (i.e. dance break or something like that) to make Korean people wanting her solo and anticipate it. The only person I've seen celebrating and anticipating it are Blinks and Lisa solo stan. Jennie D4 era has made her presence strong enough for knetz to want to see more of her. Rosie in LSG have made knetz in awe for her vocals and acting. What did YG do to make Lisa stand out in songs and highlights her strength? NONE


    Let's not be dumb and accept the fact that YG and K-Blinks are the reason she failed to chart high in whatever platform in Korea.

  • I think Koreans just didn’t like the song


    She is not popular in Korea and the song is bad, she might have had charted way better if the song was good at least.


    They didnt even listen to it.


    I wouldve understood if she got the same 436k UL as Rosie did and then just bombed afterwards...that wouldve shown that Korea gave it a chance.


    But instead she got less than StayC, Aespa, and probably tons of other groups. Korea literally didnt even bother checking it out while the rest of the world made it #2.

  • Pure Girl crush concept are not as popular in Korea as they were before. They are more into youthful concepts these days (exception aespa). If Lisa came back with a whistle-ish song, she would have had no problems with the charting. The hardcore Teddy-sound is not that popular anymore. Somi‘s Dumb dumb had the intro, verses and prechorus that made it not as girl crushy and the break wasn’t the usual Teddy break. It was more vogue-ish. Plus the dd challenge became really popular in SK.

    I just hope that Lisa gets better songs. They get lovecalls from a lot of producers world wide but still heavily rely on Teddy who puts literally not enough effort in their songs. They are so talented, i dont get yg fr

    They probably watched her mv and just didn’t want to listen to the song on melon
