BLACKPINK, who is going on a world tour for the first time in four years, greeted the audience in Seoul.
At 5 PM (KST) on October 16th, BLACKPINK held their concert “BLACKPINK WORLD TOUR [BORN PINK] in SEOUL” at KSPO DOME (Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium) in Songpa-gu, Seoul. This concert venue was crowded with fans from all over the world who came to see BLACKPINK.
As can be seen from the title “BORN PINK”, the concert embodied BLACKPINK’s music world in by bringing together colorful directing, high-quality sound, and various objects symbolizing “BORN PINK.” In particular, BLACKPINK members participated in the concert planning stage and added various ideas, including the set list and the stage.
On this day, Lisa said, “I was very nervous at the concert yesterday, but I thought I can have fun today. When I actually went on stage, however, I was just as nervous as yesterday.”
Meanwhile, Jisoo said, “We are about to go on a world tour after 4 years, and we are happy that it started in Seoul.”
Afterwards, Jennie asked fans to sing along as the four girls brought to life the stages of “Don’t Know What To Do,” “Lovesick Girls,” “KILL This Love,” “Crazy Over You,” and “Playing With Fire.”
After singing 8 songs in a row, BLACKPINK came out on the extended stage and greeted the fans at a closer distance.
Here, Jennie drew attention by making a cute “complaint” to fans who were busy filming with their cell phones, saying, “After today’s concert, the video will be uploaded. So I hope you enjoy it. It’s like having a concert with cell phones” and causing everyone to laugh.
Jennie recently suffered from an alleged illegal distribution of photos she took with BTS V. In response, YG announced on October 3rd that it would take strong legal actions in relation to the incident.
Jennie did not publicly comment on this, but it must have been a difficult time. However, the female idol radiated brighter energy than anyone else in front of the fans she had not seen in a long time, making everyone enjoy the stage excitedly.
On the other hand, after the concert in Seoul, BLACKPINK will go on a world tour to North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania, with a projected audience of 1.5 million people, the largest for a K-pop girl group. Their first stop will be Dallas, with two concert nights on October 25th and 26th. Then, BLACKPINK will go to 7 American cities including Houston, Atlanta, Hamilton, Chicago, Newark, and LA.
