Blackpink Are No Longer Accepting Gifts From Fans
The group — Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo, and Rosé — made the announcement via their label YG Entertainment, where they explained what they would like their army of Blinks to do moving forward.
“We would like to inform our grateful fans who always support Blackpink about fan support. Blackpink members have been struggling for a long time to tell you about the support and gifts that fans have prepared,” the group said in
They continued, “For Blackpink’s special days in the future, we would like to politely refuse the anniversaries (group debut anniversary, solo debut anniversary, birthday), broadcasts (music broadcasts, radio, entertainment), performances (snacks, donation wreaths), and postal gifts.”
Instead of sending gifts like flowers, balloons, and books, the group would prefer that fans make a donation to those in need.
The massively popular K-pop girl group announced via label YG Entertainment on Tuesday (October 12) that they will no longer be accepting gifts from fans.
Instead, the group would like their fans to direct their efforts to good causes.
“We would like to inform our grateful fans who always support BLACKPINK about fan support. BLACKPINK members have been struggling for a long time to tell you about the support and gifts that fans have prepared,” the label said in a statement.
“For BLACKPINK‘s special days in the future, we would like to politely refuse the anniversaries (group debut anniversary, solo debut anniversary, birthday), broadcasts (music broadcasts, radio, entertainment), performances (snacks, donation wreaths) and postal gifts. We would appreciate it if you could indirectly deliver the gifts and support you are preparing to convey your heart to places in need or for good things (instead),” they continued, adding that they will not accept gifts for special holidays.
However, they will still accept personal letters.
Items such as flower bouquets and other gifts left at YG headquarters will be discarded, beginning this week.

Jisoo’s effort ahead of the Dior show — four photos of herself on Instagram wearing a beige minidress decorated with a Greek figure — generated $1.84 million in media impact value, according to data and insights firm Launchmetrics.
Dior came out as the top brand account with 8,088 posts valued at $39.1 million in media impact value, while Jisoo, whose full name is Kim Ji-soo, was the top celebrity with only two personal posts and 2,536 media mentions for a total value of $15.7 million.
