YG Entertainment Stocks See Decrease Following Reports that BLACKPINK Lisa is Being Mistreated
On October 5, the CEO of Bvlgari welcomed BLACKPINK member Lisa to Paris through his Instagram after the idol was seen in Incheon Airport heading to France.
However, in his post, he revealed that her label, YG Entertainment, did not want the idol to participate in any events or shows due to COVID-19, which means she will not be photographed for Bvlgari's brand campaign 2021/2022.
She will also not be able to attend Bvlgari's show in Milano, Italy. However, the CEO stated that he was doing everything in his power to active the collaboration and stressed that he is great friends with Lisa.
