KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 20 — Lisa and Jennie of popular K-pop girl group Blackpink got emotional during the final Born Pink world tour concert last weekend.
Taking place over two days at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on September 16 and 17, the quartet electrified the stage with their greatest hits, The Korea Herald reported.
During the final concert, the members began sharing their heartfelt gratitude to their superfans known as Blinks from all over the world.
“Different from our previous concerts, I am getting emotional after each performance, as this is our last concert,” Jennie said.
“We hope that every one of you gets to enjoy today’s concert until the end.”

Lisa was also emotional when delivering a speech she prepared on her phone later in the concert.
“Thanks to Blinks, we could put on many performances. It wouldn’t have been possible without you,” she said.
“Thank you for being with us when the weather was both good and bad. Thank you for making our twenties shine.”

The other two members also shared their appreciation to Blinks for their support over the years.
“Thank you Blinks for making an unforgettable memory with us,” Jisoo added
“I am so grateful that all four of us could finish this tour safely without getting hurt or sick. This is all thanks to you because you gave us the energy.”
“I remember the day when we had our first world tour about four years ago, and it feels like yesterday,” Rose said.
“During the past few months, we’ve been on numerous flights, and it was nice to get closer to Blinks around the world.”
This comes in the midst of the group’s uncertain future as no news has come from contract renewal discussions with label YG Entertainment.
Lisa was recently reported to have turned down an RM176 million offer from label YG, which added fuel to rumours that the group’s days may come to an end soon.
However, YG has assured fans in a recent statement that contract renewal discussions with the Blackpink members are still underway.
