Blackpink members will NOT attend 'The Virtual', fans say 'our faves don't like us'
Ever since it was announced that the YG Entertainment girl group Blackpink was going to make a comeback in August, their fans have been waiting for an update from the label. But, it looks like patience is the biggest weapon for Blinks (fans of Blackpink) as the label is yet to share an update on Blackpink's comeback album. Instead of being worried about that, fans are gearing up for the new PUBG event 'The Virtual' that members of Blackpink are all set to take part in.
According to YG Entertainment, 'BLACKPINK X PUBG MOBILE 2022 IN-GAME CONCERT: [THE VIRTUAL]' will open first in South and North America and will later be released around the world at specific times. The virtual concert will be held in South Korea on July 23 from 2 pm KST (1 am ET) to 4 pm KST (3 am ET) and on July 24 from 8 pm KST (7 am ET) to 10 pm (9 am ET). Not only that but the two-hour live stream event will have a belated broadcast on July 30 and 31 where fans with a valid ticket can watch the event as many times as they like within their '24 hour viewing' limit.
Will Blackpink members attend 'The Virtual'?
It has been reported that Blackpink will first meet fans around the world through the 'Battleground Mobile' virtual in-game concert for the game PUBG ahead of their official comeback. It seems like the concert will not feature the Blackpink members but only their 3D AI characters that are a part of the game. The in-game concert, 'The Virtual', will feature lively 3D avatars of the four Blackpink members Jisoo, Jenny, Rosé, and Lisa, as well as three-dimensional sound and a fantastic stage performance by the AI characters.
Fans can wave their light sticks to the music which will give them the experience of watching a real concert as they perform the choreography together with the Blackpink characters in the comfort of their homes. A lot of attention is being paid to the fact that Blackpink will now officially release their unofficial single, 'Ready For Love' after performing the single at the PUBG concert for the first time.

The concert will feature a mega-hit parade from Blackpink where the AI characters will perform other hits from Blackpink raising the expectations of fans for what is in store for them. While talking about the single, YG Entertainment said, "It breaks the static flow of the lyrical piano performance, and the cool drop in the chorus is an attractive pop."
'We aren't going to see them?'
Since the concert will only feature AI characters and release a song that fans have already heard before, Blinks have been talking about how they will have to pretend to have never heard the song before as Blackpink releases it for PUBG. A fan asked, "So we are not going to see them? Just their avatar?" Another fan said, "May I remind you this is a “virtual concert” obv the characters won’t be real and only be AI characters like where tf did they copy ADSPA like KDA has been doing this already." One fan said, "Blinks tomorrow let's pretend we didn't hear Ready For Love before."
One more fan said, "Lets pretend we dont know ready for love yet." One fan said, "Saying all this when we literally heard 3/4 of the song." One fan said, "So we still are not getting anything today like ready for love? Dang we really are clowning for years now I’m tired." Another fan said, "3D AVATARS." One more fan said, "Noooooo but at least if we will get a new content i won't care so much." One fan said, "Virtual concert ?? and not actual one ?? Our fave don't like us."
