BLACKPINK is coming to Weverse shortly!
YG Entertainment announced on July 14 that the group would be joining Weverse, a global fan community network. On August 2, BLACKPINK’s Weverse community will launch, allowing users to communicate more readily with BLINK [BLACKPINK’s official fan club name] members all around the world.
Fans are especially interested in finding out what new special content or activities will be presented through Weverse as their fifth anniversary approaches on August 8. According to a source from YG Entertainment, this will be part of BLACKPINK’s fifth anniversary initiative, the “4+1 Project.”
BLACKPINK is the third YG Entertainment group to join Weverse, following TREASURE and iKON. YG Entertainment earlier announced plans to expand their strategic cooperation with HYBE (formerly Big Hit Entertainment) and Weverse Company.
BLACKPINK debuted in August 2016, and since then, they’ve had a string of hits, including “DDU-DU DDU-DU” and “Kill This Love.” The group created history when their first full-length album, “THE ALBUM,” debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart in October of last year. With the album, BLACKPINK became the first Korean girl group to achieve the status of “million seller.” The group has over 63 million YouTube subscribers and over 22 million Spotify followers, in addition to 29 videos with hundreds of millions of views.
