Black Pink recently held its first solo concert in Seoul and their sponsor introduction time in the concert has become the talk of the town.
BlackPink had their BLACKPINK 2018 TOUR [IN YOUR AREA] SEOUL X BC CARD at Olympic Gymnastics Stadium in Seoul at 6:00 p.m. on the 10th. It’s reported that more than 10,000 people gathered to see the girls.
On this day, BlackPink performed a hit-song medley, started with “Ddu-du Ddu-du” and ended with their debut song “Whistle.”
They also performed covers of pop singer Miguel’s “Sure Thing” and Wonder Girls’ “So Hot.”
Jennie’s solo song “Solo” (SOLO) was reportedly released for the first time. “It’s an honor to release my solo song here,” said Jennie after finishing the stage.
However, there was something that was talked about even more than the stage. It was the sponsor promoting time that suddenly appeared in the middle of the show.
Jennie was the first to have a few words, “There are many people who have helped us get here.”
“We have received much help from many people before we hold the concert,” Jisoo said, “How about we introduce them here?”
Jennie added, “They are someone you know. It is Asia’s number one payment service. BC Card.” On the big screen behind them, the big brand name and logo were shown.
The sudden introduction of the sponsors made the audience laugh. “I’ve never seen a scene like this before,” a confused foreign fan said.
Jenny continued to speak without being affected by the audience’s reaction. “They have held various events to help us stand here today. Thank you.”
The introduction of sponsors continued. There were various brands such as Mise-en-scène and Adidas. The comment of the members seemed to have been prepared as well.
The group ended the sponsor introduction time by saying, “Thank you for your help.”
Meanwhile, Black Pink’s concert in Seoul continues until today (11st). Starting next January, the group will hold eight concert in seven cities worldwide, including Bangkok, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Portugal, Kuala Lumpur and Taipei.
