SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: Blackpink is in our area! After a two-year wait, Blinks (Blackpink's fans) are excited as the girl group has a lot of plans. Blackpink first released the record breaking pre-release 'Pink Venom' followed by their second album 'Born Pink'. They also plan to go on a world tour with a 1.5 million audience. However, fans of Jisoo are unhappy as there's a theory making the rounds that she could have sung the solo song 'Hard To Love' given to Rose.

'Born Pink' was released on September 16 and is already breaking records. The music video for 'Shut Down' trended worldwide while the album crossed one million sales on Hanteo in less than 24 hours. And to celebrate, one of the music producers shared a photo with Jisoo and Rose. Fred Wexler, who worked on Rosé's solo song, 'Hard To Love', said that he had participated in the song's making for Blackpink.

Jisoo fans unhappy with lack of opportunities

As he shared a photo with only two of four members, many think that 'Hard To Love' was not a solo song but a sub-unit song meant for both Rosé and Jisoo. Jisoo fans are further frustrated since she was the only Blackpink member with no solo music despite saying she was ready to debut in January. On top of that, Jisoo had only nine seconds in the lead single 'Shut Down' and had the least lines in the whole album. Many also wondered why a solo song was given to a member who has already made her solo debut. Fans have taken to trending #ShutdownYG to get answers about Jisoo's solo.

'Why you hate Jisoo so much'

A fan said, "She got the least lines in pv and barely has lines in the title song "shut down" despite being the lead vocalist + yg never update us about her solo since 2 years, all we asking for is a fair treatment and one article about her solo!!!" With the song supposedly being a sub-unit song with Rose and Jisoo, one fan added, "This just pisses me off more." Another fan wrote, "Fred Wexler (producer) and he worked on hard to love song ! His caption and post says different story that song is Chaesoo song but FREAKIN @ygent_official nd that Teddy given to only one member Wtf YG why you hate JISOO so much ? WHERE IS JISOO SOLO UPDATE? #ShutDownYG."

One fan tweeted, "The album is great, Jisoo's vocals are perfect. But BLACKPINK's next step is a world tour, and Jisoo will sing a cover again while the other members will perform their own songs. We have the right to complain about it, it's sad." Another fan posted, "As a jisoo stan i know that we're mad that jisoo doesn't have her solo yet but i hope we're not dragging other members down it's not rosé's fault that HARD TO LOVE was given to her. she sang it very well! It's always YG who keep on messing with the girls."
