On July 12, BLINKs (BLACKPINK fandom) expressed their displeasure to an article released by Rolling Stone Korea on July 5, belatedly shared to the public on the 11th through Twitter.

BLINKs Demand Apology From Rolling Stone Korea for THIS Reason

The article praised BLACKPINK member’s physical appearances and skills, but fans complained about a certain description that music critic Kim Young Dae said about Jisoo. In the original article, the critic wrote:

“Although she does not possess the most outstanding talent in the group as a vocalist or dancer, her growth is more apparent.”

Apparently, Kim wanted to highlight the growth of Jisoo over the years. Instead, he compared the idol’s skills to other members and allegedly undermined her capabilities.

As soon as the article was released, BLINKs took to Twitter and other social media platforms to call for an apology from Rolling Stone Korea and Kim Young Dae.

They defended Jisoo by emphasizing her singing and dancing skills, saying:

K-pop fans also accused the critic of being “unprofessional” and “disrespectful.” Soon enough, phrases “APOLOGIZE TO JISOO” and “RESPECT JISOO” climbed on Twitter’s real-time trends under the category K-pop.

The article didn’t only experience backlash for their description to Jisoo, but also for the words they associated with members Lisa and Rosé.

In the article, Kim talked about Lisa having an “exotic appearance” and her (Korean) pronunciation which is “natural enough to prevent the listeners from sensing any kinks from the foreign member of the group.

Fans then accused the author of being racist for using the word “exotic.”

They also questioned the critic for mentioning her pronunciation among achievements Lisa created they could have talked about.

Fans were also disappointed when the critic wrote, “BLACKPINK may not be the most technical vocalists in the K-pop scene,” when the group has Rosé.

Instead, the article limited Rosé’s vocals to being distinct for her “nasal sound” when she got one of the golden vocals in Korea acknowledged by top singers and professionals around the world.

Along with Jisoo’s Twitter phrases, “APOLOGIZE TO LISA,” “APOLOGIZE TO ROSÉ,” “RESPECT LISA” and “RESPECT ROSÉ” also trended.

Rolling Stone Korea is yet to release their statement regarding the matter, but they edited out the phrase written for Jisoo.
