BLACKPINK Jennie‘s situation with managers at a recent event sparks speculations about her future with YG Entertainment.
On November 16, Jennie attended the pre-opening of TAMBURINS’ pop-up store in Korea.
Yet, aside from Jennie’s beauty and proportions, one other thing caught netizens’ attention, and it all stems from the uncertainty surrounding BLACKPINK’s contract renewal with YG Entertainment. While YG Entertainment has been brief with their statements, netizens have turned to other clues.
In particular, many have tried to pay attention to the people around BLACKPINK. Earlier in the month, netizens grew concerned when Lisa’s long-time manager Alice left the company.

In the photos posted by fans, netizens noticed familiar faces with Jennie at the event, and it was her former managers who recently left YG Entertainment.
After the images of Jennie with the former YG managers Hosup and Jaemin were posted, it wasn’t surprising that netizens started analyzing it. While some wondered if it was just out of loyalty and friendship to Jennie, others thought it could hint about Jennie’s next move, whether to another company or even setting one up.
