Hello, this is YG Entertainment.
We would like to inform you that BLACKPINK member Jisoo received a positive COVID-19 diagnosis today (June 1st). Jisoo had minor cold symptoms on May 30th, and confirmed she was negative through a self-test, but today, she received a final positive diagnosis.
Jisoo showed strong determination to perform to keep her promise with the fans who have been waiting for a long time, but it was inevitably decided that she will not participate in the performance for the health of the artist and the safety of everyone.
Therefore, only the three members, Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé will be participating in the 'Born Pink' World Tour concert held in Osaka, Japan on June 3rd and 4th. We understand the expectations and waiting of the fans who have been looking forward to the performance, and we ask for your generous support as we do our best to present the performance as planned.
Our company will do its utmost for the quick recovery of Jisoo, as well as the health and safety of our artists.
We kindly ask for your understanding once again.
Thank you. #BLACKPINK #YG #Kpop #Jisoo
