BLACKPINK is under heavy criticism regarding their attitude on stage during their World Tour.
Starting with two nights of concerts in Seoul at the KSPO Dome (Olympic Gymnastics Stadium) in Seoul Olympic Park on October 16th, BLACKPINK has commenced their world tour for the 1st time in 4 years since their 2018 world tour.
Currently, BLACKPINK is holding 14 concerts in 7 cities in North America alone, including Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Hamilton, and Chicago, and it is known that they are being criticized by some domestic and foreign fans.
In particular, videos of BLACKPINK’s performances at the concerts were being shared online, and in many of them, Jennie can be seen not performing some movements as if she had forgotten the choreography. She also lost her balance and fell backwards during one stage, tho she recovered quickly.
Jennie was not the only member who showed an “inexperienced” choreography. Although all the members are doing the same movements, each of them seem to be dancing differently several times in different songs.
There seems to be a lot of complaints from overseas fandoms in this regard, and in the YouTube search bar, when one searches “blackpink concert”, the keyword “mess” is among the top suggestions.
Below are some comments from Korean netizens who saw the videos:
- I think BLACKPINK lacks practice
- It is honestly expected. They never focus on their main job and instead are always busy with personal activities
- I’m not sure if I want to go to a concert if they dance like this
- Years of experience yet BLACKPINK came out like this
Nevertheless, many fans still defend the group, stating that the performance mostly goes well, and online accusations only spread several seconds to maliciously criticize BLACKPINK.
