Presenting fascinating stages for more than two hours, the members spent time sharing their sincere thoughts before the last performance. First of all, Jisoo said, “Normally, I don’t often get nervous, but I’m very nervous right now. Since the shows in Seoul marks the start of our world tour, I felt that I had to do it properly in my hometown. I wanted to do well”, adding “I showed my cool appearance even when I was very nervous yesterday. Today, I tried to control my mind so that BLINKs can enjoy the performances more. I hope everyone is having fun”.

Lisa shared, “I talked a little too long yesterday and it made me emotional. So I’m going to make it short today. I want to thank all the staff for creating these pretty and cool stages”. She continued, “I love my members so much. Although you’ve been so busy, you got sick and couldn’t even sleep well, I’m so thankful and proud of you all for finishing our concert well. And to our BLINKs, who made this pretty pink ocean for us, thank you for always supporting us and I love you. Let’s be together for a long time.”

Jennie said, “We will have to wrap up our Seoul concert today, but I’m still feeling like I’m going to do it tomorrow and even the day after tomorrow. My body has just been warmed up, but it’s too bad that we have to end here”, adding “BLINKs, thank you so much for giving us so much support during these two days. I feel like I’ve been running days and nights for about three months to prepare for this concert. I really want to say that all the staff and dancers worked very hard for this tour. We will finish our tour and then come back. You guys have to come and see us again when we return. Thank you so much”. She added, “I’m feeling like I have to say something more because I don’t want this to end. What should I do now?”, expressing her regrets.

Lastly, Rosé said, “Like what Jennie unnie said, we wanted to do so many things that I think we need to do concerts for about five more times to show them all to you. It’s been a long time since our last concert. I’m a little bit sad that it has to end too early”, conveying her overwhelming feelings. 

She continued, “When we were taking a break from performing activities, I realized how it was so fun and that I really liked performing as BLACKPINK. That’s why I had high expectations for this concert, and prepared it with excitement, but I feel that we are still lacking. Thank you for loving us and supporting us. And since we start here in our hometown, I think we can do a great world tour with this huge support. Thank you so much for coming here today”. As soon as Rosé finished her words, she shed tears.
