On December 16, BLACKPINK fans protested outside YG Entertainment's offices in Seoul by sending a truck with a billboard to go around the building.
The electronic billboard contained the fans' demands for BLACKPINK, including for the girl group to have two comebacks a year, to appear on broadcasts in Korea and end-of-year shows, as well as releasing the solo projects for each member that have been referred to multiple times by the agency as being in the works.
YG Entertainment have since released a statement on the matter. It reads:
"YG is all ears when it comes to fans' concerns regarding BLACKPINK as well as all of our artists. BLACKPINK is at the last leg of their 2019-20 world tour consisting of 32 concerts in four continents and 23 cities, now ending with the Japan dome tour. At the same time, they are working hard at the recording studio for their new album. We appreciate BLINKs' interest and would like to ask you to continue supporting the girls working on their album release scheduled for early 2020.
All of us at YG would like to express our deepest gratitude to the fans and would like to take this opportunity to share with you that we are doing our absolute best to give BLACKPINK and BLINKs the best music YG has to offer."
BLACKPINK's most recent comeback was with "Kill This Love" in April 2019.
