Regarding Korean awards shows, fans have expressed disappointment in not seeing idols enjoy themselves freely as past generations have.
Like every other group that’s now hoping to avoid any unnecessary rumors, the members of BLACKPINK often keep straight faces when attending.
So when fans saw how much BLACKPINK was enjoying themselves at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards (also called the VMAs), the difference immediately went viral.
Not a single blank face could be seen when the girls were seated. All of them smiled as they watched what was happening on stage, with Jisoo and Rosé having the biggest smiles of them all as they clapped.
Even when Nicki Minaj took the stage to perform a few of her worldwide hits, all of BLACKPINK happily danced along as if they were at a concert.
Fans couldn’t help comparing how serious BLACKPINK looked at Korean awards shows to how carefree and excited they were at an American one.
