With BLACKPINK's contract with YG Entertainment set to expire in August, the topic of whether the group members will renew their agreement with the talent agency has been the subject of much discussion on social media.
An earlier rumor has surfaced that while the members will remain as a group, they plan on following in the footsteps of BIGBANG member Taeyang, who signed a contract with agency The Black Label. As of this writing, none of the parties involved have confirmed any of the reports.

BLINKS, the popular girl group’s official fandom, remain positive that the members would stay together and have mostly expressed support for the members should they decide to move to a different agency.
"I think they would renew but I wish they would go to better companies," one fan said.

Meanwhile, “Lisa Leave YG” became a trending topic on social media after a number of Lisa’s fans urged her to leave YG Entertainment.
The posts reportedly come from Lisa fans who believe the company has mistreated the member several times in the past.
We will never forget how YG hurt Lisa and send her to military show when Lisa asked him to send her to Dance show !!
