We would be grateful if the gifts and fan support that you prepare to convey your love and to celebrate these occasions would be given to places where they are more needed. Apart from fan letters, please keep in mind that mailed gifts or delivered packages will either be returned or thrown away. We ask for fans' understanding and cooperation.
This policy will be implemented as of October 12, 2021.
With the support of their fans, BLACKPINK will continue pursuing a wider variety of activities in the future, and work hard to become even cooler artists. Please continue to show them lots of love and interest.
