BLACKPINK’s Rosé almost gets mired in a controversy

BLACKPINK members YG Entertainment

BLACKPINK’s Rosé recently got into trouble (almost!) for using the controversial term titled ‘llbe.’ On January 3, 2022, the K-pop idol took to Instagram to wish fellow member Jisoo on the latter’s special birthday. Here is what she wrote, “Our eldest cutie pie Jisoonie. I really really wish you a happy birthday. I hope that you will have the happiest day in the world. I love you.” For the unversed, Rosé also added a couple of hashtags for the diva’s birthday. She had also intended to write the phrase ‘neomu’ but replaced it with ‘nohhmu’ which is a traditional Korean phonetic spelling.

What went wrong?

The similar-sounding words confused BLACKPINK member Rosé and almost got her into trouble. It is because the term “nohhmu nohhmu” is allegedly an ‘Ilbe’ term. This particular phrase is reported used by extreme conservatives to reference former South Korean president Noh Moo Hyun by showing him in a negative light.

Rose’s response

It seemed like the BLACKPINK member sensed her story on Instagram stirred some controversy and edited her hashtag before uploading Jisoo’s birthday story on the same platform.
