YG Entertainment has all but confirmed BLACKPINK‘s plans to expand into the Western market in September, mentioning development marketing in North America and Europe.
According to financial analyst Hanwha Investment & Securities Co, YG Entertainment is entering a “growth” phrase, and the probability of BLACKPINK going on a global tour has raised their target projections for YG Entertainment’s stock.
BLACKPINK will complete its domestic activities in South Korea at the end of the month before entering the North American and European market in September. A domestic comeback is also scheduled by the end of the year.
