Blackpink member Jennie reassured fans about her health after abruptly leaving the stage during a concert in Melbourne. The incident raised concerns among fans as Jennie walked off during the performance of the song “Lovesick Girls.” Her absence for the remainder of the show prompted bandmate Rosé to explain to the audience that Jennie wasn’t feeling well.
In an Instagram story, Jennie addressed her fans, known as “Melbourne Blinks,” and expressed her apologies for not being able to complete the show. She reassured them that she was doing her best to recover and thanked them for their understanding and support. Jennie’s heartfelt message conveyed her gratitude to everyone who attended the Melbourne show and expressed her love for her fans.
YG Entertainment, the talent management company representing Blackpink, released a statement explaining that Jennie’s health had deteriorated, which prevented her from completing the concert. The statement mentioned that despite her determination to continue performing, Jennie received medical advice on-site, leading to the decision to prioritize her well-being and provide her with rest and stability. YG Entertainment conveyed Jennie’s regrets for not being able to stay with the fans until the end and assured everyone that she would focus on recovering as soon as possible.
After Jennie left the stage during the concert, video footage showed Rosé speaking to the audience with Lisa and Jisoo by her side. Rosé expressed the group’s concern for Jennie’s well-being and conveyed their sadness at not being able to share the moment with her. She assured the audience that Jennie was okay and asked them not to worry too much.
Earlier on the same day, during a soundcheck with a smaller group of fans, Rosé informed them that Jennie wasn’t feeling well and had chosen to skip the rehearsal to rest and recover. Rosé expressed the group’s longing for Jennie’s presence but assured the fans that they would see her later that night.
Blackpink, consisting of Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé, had traveled to Melbourne as part of their Born Pink world tour. The group has been captivating audiences worldwide with their energetic performances. They are set to perform at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium on August 26, continuing their world tour. Earlier this year, Blackpink also made a splash as the first K-pop girl group to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California.
In addition to her music career, Jennie recently took a break from touring to attend the Cannes Film Festival. She made her acting debut in the HBO series “The Idol,” where she played the role of a backup dancer for a troubled pop star portrayed by Lily-Rose Depp. The festival premiere marked an exciting venture for Jennie outside of her music pursuits.
Fans eagerly await Jennie’s recovery and the continuation of Blackpink’s tour, as they continue to support and uplift their favorite artist during this time.
