    Fans are worried, both about the future of Jisoo - and about the future of the K-Pop girl band itself.

    A Jisoo fansite, JISOOENT, noticed that the profile of the BLACKPINK member had been removed from the website of the YG Entertainment branch label for actors - YG Stage.

    ​Jisoo was previously listed among famous actors like Lee Sung-kyoung, Lee Jong-suk, Nam Joo-hyuk and others.

    Fans have become increasingly worried about the future of the band and its activities in light of the girl group's comeback being postponed at least until the second quarter of this year due to the coronavirus outbreak: BLINKs (the official name of fandom) have been waiting for the BLACKPINK comeback since the release of “Kill This Love” in April 2019 and the agency has so far given no explanation for the delay.

    It is not the first time that fans have been disappointed by the agency’s treatment of the group. Recently fans sent tracks to the YG building with banners "Make solo project releases you promised".

    ​The agency only gave Jennie her solo debut with "SOLO" in 2018, and the other members have yet to get their own projects, even though this was promised by former YG CEO Yang Hyun-suk back in 2018.

    Blinks appear to be furious over the mistreatment of Jisoo, the agency's attitude towards BLACKPINK the band and due to the silence from the YG agency.
