BLACKPINK member Jisoo tests positive for COVID-19:
According to the agency’s statement, Trending Jisoo took a self-test on May 30 after experiencing mild cold symptoms. Initially testing negative, she was later confirmed positive on June 1. Despite her strong desire to perform and keep her promise to BLACKPINK fans who have been eagerly waiting, Jisoo decided to prioritize her health and the safety of everyone involved.
As a result, the Japan concerts, part of the BORN PINK World Tour, will proceed with only three members—Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé—on June 3rd and 4th in Osaka. YG Entertainment expressed their understanding of fans’ anticipation and assured them that they would do their best to deliver the concert as planned, seeking the fans’ unwavering support.
Jisoo, often considered the unofficial leader of BLACKPINK, has been an integral part of the group since its debut in 2016. Alongside Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa, BLACKPINK has achieved tremendous success in the music industry. The group recently concluded their concerts in China and Thailand as part of the Born Pink World Tour, which aims to promote their latest album.
While fans will undoubtedly miss Jisoo’s presence on stage, they continue to send their warm wishes for her swift recovery on social media platforms. As BLACKPINK moves forward with their tour, fans can still anticipate captivating performances from Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa. Jisoo’s most recent music video, “Flower,” was a commercial hit, reaching the impressive second spot on the Billboard Global 200 chart.
