BlackPink’s outfit during the promotion of the new song “Shut Down” was commented by fans as boring and not compatible with the members.
On September 26, My Daily reported that BlackPink performed the song Shut Down on SBS’s Inkigayo stage. This is the first and only promotional stage in this comeback of BlackPink. Therefore, the public expects the management company YG Entertainment to invest in costumes for the members.
However, BlackPink’s outfit when performing the song Shut Down is controversial. The suits are commented to be low-quality and less invested compared to BlackPink’s previous promotions.
The audience commented, Jennie and Lisa are the two members who wear the most beautiful clothes. Female singer Solo wears a uniform style while Lisa impresses with a sporty design. Meanwhile, Jisoo and Rosé’s costumes were commented too boring. The Gone vocalist looks like she’s wearing a casual outfit. The eldest sister Jisoo only wears a monotonous black outfit without any accessories.
When photos of BlackPink’s concert were released, fans expressed their disappointment. Many viewers even commented that BlackPink doesn’t look like a group from one of the biggest entertainment companies in Korea, YG Entertainment.
Fans think that the stylist is choosing haphazardly without trying to renew BlackPink’s image. In addition to the lack of breakthrough, the costumes of the 4 members are not connected and harmonious. The four members seem to be performing 4 songs with different styles.
