BLACKPINK member Lisa’s future at YG Entertainment has become increasingly uncertain as her exclusive contract with the company is set to expire in August. Rumors suggest that discussions regarding the renewal of her contract have not been successful, with both sides unable to reach an agreement. While YG Entertainment hopes for a resolution before the contract expiration date, significant differences between the two parties seem to be causing difficulties.
Speculation and Chinese Source
Speculation regarding Lisa’s contract situation initially emerged from a Chinese source. An anonymous Chinese agency involved in coordinating YG and Lisa’s schedules stated that it has become challenging to discuss Lisa’s schedule after August due to the unclear status of her contract renewal.
YG Entertainment’s Response and Schedule Coordination
In response to the rumors, YG Entertainment addressed the situation by stating that the difficulty in scheduling is primarily due to Lisa’s tour and personal schedules and it is unrelated to her contract status. Although YG Entertainment did not provide a definitive stance on the contract renewal, they acknowledged that Lisa’s schedule had recently been coordinated through the Chinese agency.
Contract Renewal Progress with Other BLACKPINK Members
In contrast to Lisa’s situation, the contract renewal process with the other three members of BLACKPINK is reportedly progressing more smoothly. An insider has confirmed that the differences between YG Entertainment and the other members have been narrowed, indicating a higher likelihood that all three members will renew their contracts with the company.
The future of Lisa’s tenure at YG Entertainment remains uncertain, with ongoing discussions and negotiations between the parties. Fans and industry observers eagerly await further updates to see if an agreement can be reached before the expiration of Lisa’s contract in August.
