Blackpink’s contract with its current management, YG Entertainment, will expire in August 2023. As such, other entertainment agencies worldwide are now eyeing the girl group to be on their team – including companies from China, Thailand, and others from Korea, according to rumours. These agencies are ready to win Blackpink with high-paying signing contracts.
If YG Entertainment wants to renew the contract and keep Blackpink, the company needs to pay each artist a total amount of 20 billion won, or approximately S$21 million! This renewal of the contract with YG Entertainment has been a hot issue because of YG’s stock price.
“YG’s stock price is relatively low compared with similar competitors, which makes people worry about the contract that expires in August this year,” as reported by the Korean investment and Securities Industry. Meanwhile, Blackpink’s overall revenue is more or less 90% of the company’s turnover, and the girls bring as much as S$316 million for YG Entertainment.
Will Blackpink remain under the management of YG Entertainment? People worldwide may be more than invested in finding out!
