BLACKPINK will come back as early as July
Interest in BLACKPINK’s comeback in the second half of the year is soaring.
BLACKPINK has been in a two-year hiatus since its first full-length album “The ALBUM” in October 2020.
He has been active in the fashion industry, focusing on solo projects, but the number of comebacks is small compared to more than six years since his debut.
In particular, even though the members appeared on domestic and foreign broadcasts this year and consistently mentioned, “We are preparing for a comeback soon” and “We are preparing for a comeback together,” fans’ waiting has increased as the gap in our main job is getting longer.
Their comeback is estimated to be in the third quarter and is expected to continue their activities as a tour in the fourth quarter.
Considering the usual five-week pre-sale period for the album release, it is outlined as a comeback as early as July.
Lee Hye-in, a researcher at Yuanta Securities, said, “BLACKPINK is expected to make a comeback in the third quarter and start a tour in the fourth quarter.”
The investment industry expects major artists to come out in the second half of the year because YG had poor performance in the first quarter.
YG’s first-quarter sales and operating profit fell 22.4% and 21.4% year-on-year to 75.5 billion won and 6.1 billion won, respectively.
Digital content sales have fallen significantly, which is attributed to the high base due to the influence of BLACKPINK online concerts in the same period last year and the absence of activities by major artists.
Lee Nam-soo, a researcher at Kiwoom Securities, predicted that Black Pink, one of the biggest comeback stars this year, will directly contribute to this year’s concert and MD performance with its first full-length comeback in two years.
Lee Hyun-ji, a researcher at Eugene Investment & Securities, predicted, “We expect profits to show a downward trend due to the comeback of major artists such as Black Pink in the third quarter, and we expect a noticeable improvement in performance from the third quarter.”
He also considered that YG comebacks are often different from expected.
Researcher Lee Hye-in emphasized high performance visibility, saying, “The possibility of changes in the expected lineup of major YG artists’ activities in the second half of the year is low.” 토토추천
Lee Hwa-jung, a researcher at NH Investment & Securities, said, “The off-season continues due to the absence of major artists’ activities, and stock prices are sluggish, but investment attractiveness is also high as momentum is not far away.”
