"Lovesick Girls" has undergone a re-do. On Wednesday (Oct. 7), YG Entertainment unveiled a new version of Blackpink's latest video, following controversy surrounding a scene in the original visual.
The drama apparently started after the Health and Medical Workers' Union of Korea objected to Jennie's portrayal as a nurse during the song's girl power-fueled second verse. "Didn't wanna be a princess, I'm priceless/ A prince not even on my list/ Love is a drug that I quit/ No doctor could help when I'm lovesick," the idol rapped while wearing the costume in the original version, which the union viewed as sexual objectification of their profession.
And while Blinks took to social media in defense of the girl group, Blackpink's label ultimately made the decision to re-edit the music video and replace Jennie's scenes with a different look. (In the updated version, she now wears a chic beige sweater-dress and matching boots while clutching an edgy teddy bear.)
