BLACKPINK's YG Entertainment, faced a drop in stock prices due to concerns about Lisa's future with the group.

On September 18, YG Entertainment's stock fell 1.64% to 78,000 KRW (around 58.90 USD) per share, linked to rumors of Lisa's contract renewal.

Speculation began following news on September 15 regarding Lisa's closeness to Frédéric Arnault, son of the LVMH Chairman and CEO of TAG Heuer.

This led to rumors of a failed contract renewal between Lisa and YG Entertainment, with reports suggesting that she declined a substantial 50 Billion KRW (37.6 million USD) offer from YG.

These speculations contributed to a 2.9% decrease in YG Entertainment's stock price.

Investors and fans on the YG Entertainment discussion forum have meticulously examined the comments made by BLACKPINK members during the BORN PINK world tour finale at Seoul's Gocheok Sky Dome, held on September 16 and 17.

Lisa's speech, in particular, garnered attention.

She credited BLINKs (BLACKPINK fans) for the successful tour and thanked them for their "unwavering support."

She stated, "This tour was possible thanks to BLINKs, and I was able to perform in various amazing venues. Regardless of the weather, I appreciate your relentless support and enjoyment. Thank you for brightening my 20s."

The ambiguous nature of her remarks has led some to interpret it as Lisa's farewell message to her fans.

In contrast, Jennie reassured fans during her speech, emphasizing that BLACKPINK will persevere.

She said, "This year marks our 7th anniversary since debut. I desperately wanted to have an encore finale in Seoul, as I haven't been able to see many BLINKs in Korea. I'm so thrilled and grateful it happened. Rest assured, we will continue to strive as BLACKPINK."

Given the differing statements, speculation regarding Lisa's contract renewal and uncertainty about other members' contract renewals have intensified.

Nam Soo Lee, a researcher at Kiwoom Securities, highlights that the primary concern is whether BLACKPINK will renew their contracts.
