According to Haslina, she and her friends decided to wait for two of the Blackpink’s member in KLIA as they favoured their chances here rather than in Subang Airport.
“We heard that Jenny and Lisa will be arriving in Subang Airport however we chose to come here.
“Because we know there’s no chance for us to see them in Subang airport because we don’t know where they will come out,” she added.

“There was just a few people here but around 9pm crowd started to form and I was so happy to catch a glimpse of the girls!” he said.
Wayne added that although the weather might not be in their favour tomorrow, he and his friends would still go to the show.
