Just off the back of their debut Korean album's release, it looks like Blackpink has further big things in store for fans. This time, their latest project is directed at fans across the globe, according to their latest teaser up on social media on November 22.

"BLACKPINK AROUND THE WORLD Coming soon! #BLACKPINK #AroundTheWorld #Teaser #YG," the group wrote in the caption on both their Instagram and Twitter accounts, alongside a teaser video for the upcoming event. In the teaser clip, we see satellite images zooming onto major cities around the world with times and coordinates, such as Paris, Sydney, Johannesburg, Mexico City, Los Angeles, and many more, and then zooms out to an animated Earth with a pink crown above it. There are a total of 16 major locations listed in the clip.

The music for the video is intense, loud and dramatic with the group announcing "Blackpink in your area." See the teaser below.



 

 

The new teaser has led many an excited fan to speculate what it's all about. Most fans believe it will be a virtual concert of sorts while others think it may be new music. "Online live is coming yup," says a fan while another wrote, "Blinks we all hoping it's an online concert. What if it's a Virtual fan meeting. WHAT THEN?"

"Hope this ain’t a tour cause i ain’t ready to get disappointed as another tour gets cancelled cause of covid," wrote a fan. "CONCERT WE ARE GETTING AN ONLINE CONCERT... what else could it be? If we get a concert + the Pinks attending MAMA & a Deluxe Album with Ready for Love on it, @BLACKPINK will have done more than just save 2020. This is their year," added another fan.



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

Other fans believe this is the year for Blackpink to attend and perform at award shows again. One fan wrote, "We want blackpink to attend award shows." Another fan added, "ITS BEEN WHAT? 2 years since we last saw BLACKPINK performing on Award Shows. The audience wanted @BLACKPINK so much to perform and receive their deserving awards so please send them this year, the pinks did so well this year. #[email protected]_official."



 

 



 

 

Considering the changes that Covid-19 has brought to the music industry with many bands going online for their live performances, Blinks may be on point with their speculations. Although there is the hint that Blackpink will be "in your area," so it is difficult to guess what kind of physical/non-physical proximity that will be as of now.

It may be safe to rule out a possibility of new music as Blackpink recently released their debut Korean LP, 'The Album', on October 2, which means the group would have had to spend less than two months to prepare a project big enough to announce as hitting the world. If they've prepared it before 'The Album' release, then they have been way busier in 2020 than was revealed or reported. But we can't be too sure.

Either way, the group's teaser is large-and-in-charge and exciting and we can't wait. Stay tuned for more updates.
