BLACKPINK wants their army of Blinks to stop gifting them presents, and instead want their fans to provide the tokens of gratitude to a greater cause. On Tuesday (Oct. 12), the K-pop supergroup announced via their label, YG Entertainment, that they will not accept gifts in the future. Handwritten fan letters to members Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo and Rosé are the only exception to the gift rule.
"We would like to inform our grateful fans who always support BLACKPINK about fan support. BLACKPINK members have been struggling for a long time to tell you about the support and gifts that fans have prepared," translations of the official statement reads. "For BLACKPINK's special days in the future, we would like to politely refuse the anniversaries (group debut anniversary, solo debut anniversary, birthday), broadcasts (music broadcasts, radio, entertainment), performances (snacks, donation wreaths) and postal gifts. We would appreciate it if you could indirectly deliver the gifts and support you are preparing to convey your heart to places in need or for good things (instead)."
