BLACKPINK Rosé suspected of using an expression considered ‘hate speech’ on Instagram?

BLACKPINK’s Rosé is embroiled in an unexpected controversy when celebrating Jisoo’s birthday.

BLACKPINK’s Rosé shared a photo with Jisoo on social media on December 3rd to congratulate Jisoo on her birthday and said, “Have a very very happy birthday, our cute oldest sister, Jisunni (Jisoo unnie). I hope you have the happiest day in the world. I love you.” Rosé’s caption for this Instagram story caused controversy because the way she wrote “very very” (“neomu neomu” in Korean) as “nomu nomu” is an expression that is considered hate speech.

“Nomu” is used to disparage the late former President Roh Moo Hyun in the far-right community “Daily Best” (Ilbe).

Crayon Pop was also boycotted in the advertising and performance industries after using the expression “nomu nomu” on social media in the past.

Rosé was apparently aware of the problem and corrected her story shortly after. Netizens responded by saying, “I think she really wrote it without knowing it.

Meanwhile, Jisoo is set to make a solo debut soon. YG Entertainment said on January 2nd, “While Jisoo has been on a busy world tour since last year, she has been working on music in her spare time after finishing her jacket photo shoot to keep her promise with fans. She will be back with good news soon.
