BLACKPINK’s “Coachella 2023” Creative Director Advocates For One Improvement For BLINKs Ahead Of Weekend Two
BLACKPINK is two days away from their second headlining performance at Coachella 2023 after they completed an unforgettable set on Saturday, April 15.
The group performed an electrifying 18-song set, showcasing their talents as a group and individually as each member performed special solo stages.

BLACKPINK reportedly performed to a crowd of over 125,000 people, which would make it a record-breaking audience for Coachella, and reportedly gained 250 million virtual viewers that tuned in via live stream during the show.
Those who attended and viewed the performance online were blown away by the high-level production, the BLACKPINK members’ captivating stage presence, and of course, Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa‘s talent.
The group carefully and effortlessly navigated the few setbacks encountered during their live performance.
From Jennie’s smooth communication to the crew that something was off with her in-ear monitor to two of the professional dancers (including the set’s creative director, Kiel Tutin) improvising choreography when props were misplaced at the last minute, their professionalism impressed netizens and proved their status as global leaders in the music industry.
Praise poured in during and following the performance, and BLINKs and locals were proud of BLACKPINK’s historical performance.
There was one resounding issue many livestream viewers had with the performance, which had nothing to do with the group.
Many voiced disappointment in the camera work for the livestream, stating that the camera focused on individual members many times and often missed key points of the choreography.
อย่าตัดสินความพยายามของใครคนหนึ่งว่าเขาไม่เต็มที่ บางครั้งคุณอาจถูกปิดกั้นการมองเห็น เพียงแค่เพราะมุมมองที่ถูกเลือกถ่ายออกมาให้เห็น //เห็นมั้ยว่าลิซ่าใส่เต็มไม่มีกั้กตั้งแต่เปิดการแสดง

Please improve your camera works…we cant see blackpink formation very well. Mostly they zoom in or zoom out

Please improve your camera work. The new choreographies weren't appreciated because you focused on one person instead of wide pan of the group. Also focus could be better.

A BLINK commented about the camera work on Kiel Tutin’s Instagram, sharing that they appreciated the show but agreed that the camera work made it difficult to see the choreography.
Tutin graciously responded, assuring BLINKs that they were sorting the issue, adding emojis that implied the creative team was also dissatisfied with the Coachella livestream’s camera work.
Kiel Tutin replied about the complaints regarding the awful camera work for @BLACKPINK’s Coachella performance, saying they are sorting it out.
Let’s hope for better camera work on Week 2 of Coachella 🙏🏻#LISA #LALISA #MONEY pic.twitter.com/D7mW9NRlUP
