YG Entertainment’s Expected Future Results after BLACKPINK, BIGBANG, and TREASURE Join Weverse

The Korean media outlet went on to say that YG Entertainment would also have an improvement in earnings through the launch of Weverse accounts of BIGBANG, BLACKPINK, and TREASURE. Previously, iKON’s label formed a strategic partnership with HYBE (formerly called Big Hit Entertainment) to create a connection between them in several fields, including media platforms and content distribution.

Through this alliance, YG Entertainment will extend its artist influence and global reach through HYBE’s Weverse, a new fan community platform. Moreover, YG entrusted Weverse with the right to sell its artists’ goods.

TREASURE, YGE’s new boy group, joined the Weverse Shop at the same time as their debut in Japan at the end of March. In the second half of the year, BLACKPINK and BIGBANG are scheduled to enter Weverse.

With this, it is predicted that the sales of MD, which was held generally offline, will rise significantly through the expansion of the distribution channel to Weverse.

YG Entertainment is projected to record 10 billion won in music revenue in the first quarter of 2201. A total of 980,000 copies were already sold, including a portion of BLACKPINK’s regular album, Rosé’s solo debut single “R,” and TREASURE’s single album. Digital content sales are also said to rise by 14.7%, earning 11.4 billion won.

Meanwhile, BLACKPINK is said to make a comeback in the second half of 2021.
