BLACKPINK Jennie’s Award Backlash Explodes Amid Lisa’s Solo Smash — What Went Wrong?

On June 28 (KST), Lisa’s highly anticipated solo comeback was officially announced with the release of the music video for ‘ROCKSTAR.’ This exciting new chapter in her career follows her departure from YG Entertainment to pursue a solo journey, collaborating with LLOUD. The youngest member of BLACKPINK’s return to the music scene has left fans eagerly anticipating her new direction.

Lisa’s decision to release her music at an international time was a strategic move, as it allowed her to break free from the limitations of the traditional K-pop market. While this global approach has sparked enthusiasm among fans, it has also garnered a mixture of reactions from the public.

As Lisa’s music release caused a stir, Jennie also garnered attention on social media. In a fortunate coincidence, Jennie was awarded the ‘Best Actress’ prize in the International Series category at the SEC Awards Brazil for her impressive performance as backup dancer Dyanne in her debut drama ‘The Idol,’ which happened to coincide with Lisa’s comeback.

Receiving this recognition is a significant achievement for Jennie’s acting career, especially in the South American market. However, it has also sparked renewed debate about her role in the series.

Upon its release, ‘The Idol,’ an HBO production, was met with severe criticism, with experts labeling it a “cinematic disaster”and giving it low ratings. The performances of the entire cast, including The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp, were heavily scrutinized and faced backlash. Jennie, an Asian idol, was particularly targeted and bore the brunt of the criticism.

Despite “The Idol”being a thing of the past, Jennie’s recent award win has generated a surge of adverse remarks on social media. Detractors have ridiculed her accomplishment, casting doubts on her acting abilities and the overall quality of the series.

In the second half of 2024, BLACKPINK will shift their attention towards individual endeavors. This includes the release of solo albums by Lisa, Jennie, and Rosé, while Jisoo will prioritize her acting career.

Despite the division among fans, there are those who eagerly anticipate the group’s solo projects and others who are disappointed by the group’s temporary break. International fans have also voiced their concerns, expressing frustration and fearing that BLACKPINK may only come together for special events.
