The fan-space, “the SameE,” was established with the idea that the artists’ other ego are their fans, and it comes with the slogan “Alter Ego.” The theme can be seen throughout the area.

Meanwhile, the name “the SameE” implies that it is a space prepared for fans and artists where they can stay and relax at the same time and place. With that said, the fan-space will serve as a medium to further strengthen the bond between them.

In September last year, YG Entertainment drew attention after announcing that they are preparing a wide range of spaces for fans to engage at their new building, which was completed in eight years.

BLACKPINK’s agency stated that through the independent space in front of the new building, fans of YG artists will no longer endure the cold and hot weather, but instead use various convenient facilities inside “the SameE.”

Furthermore, BLACKPINK is said to have led YG Entertainment’s revival. The quartet sold a total of 620,000 album copies in the first quarter alone, and attracted almost 300,000 people through their first online concert, proving their overwhelming global fandom.

There are even predictions that BLACKPINK is possible to sell two to 2.5 million albums a year. A researcher from Hyundai Motor Securities commented that YG Entertainment is capable of generating an annual operating profit of 30 billion won with BLACKPINK alone.

Rookie group TREASURE was also projected to sell at least 1.5 million albums this year. The researcher said that the boy group lineup, which has been a weak link since BIGBANG, has been structurally reinforced following TREASURE’s debut.
