More than 80 million dollars was offered by Lisa
The group BLACKPINK made its debut in 2016, and its agreement with YG Entertainment is coming to an end this year. Most people anticipate that all of BLACKPINK’s members will sign new contracts with YG given the group’s widespread success. But not everyone desires that. Particularly Lisa’s supporters are upset with the way YG has treated the Thai idol and want her to leave the business. According to a recent K-media rumour, Lisa is getting offers from many SEA nations before she extends her contract with YG.
The process of renewing BLACKPINK’s contract with YG is not anticipated to be simple, according to the Munhwa Ilbo’s reporting, the report said. This is due to a dramatic increase in BLACKPINK’s “ransom price,” which has soared since the group’s global rebirth seven years ago.
