When it comes to K-Pop concerts, it truly is a once in a lifetime experience. After the recent pandemic, things are slowly returning to normal as idols travel the world and perform in front of Korean and international fans.
BLACKPINK no different, because they just started BORN PINK world tour, starting in Seoul, and currently in America for the show.
For many, a concert is an unforgettable experience, and many want to capture as much as possible but also share it with others around the world who may not be able to attend the show.
However, members Jennie recently gained attention after BLINK’s “Calling out”, who seemed to be more focused on recording the event on their phones than the concert itself.
In Seoul, Jennie got attention after nagging a fan who didn’t enjoy the show but focused on recording it.
In Dallas, Jennie then called fans because she couldn’t see their faces. He then shared that the group had traveled to see them, adding that he knew fans wanted to keep the memories but if they didn’t record them, there were other ways to see the group.
It would be great if I could see everyone’s faces instead of their cell phones… We came all the way to Dallas to see you guys, and if you don’t upload it I’m sure someone else will. And, if not, there’s our music video.
It looks like Jennie has ongoing feelings about the matter, as she even talked about it during her recent Atlanta show on October 3.
However, in one part of the concert, while talking to fans, Jennie indirectly “called” BLINK. While not asking fans to put down their phones, he explained, “But I feel like I see more phones than faces today. Just saying.”
Like any other show, her comments were filled with fans who loved how direct Jennie was about the situation.
However, although many fans found it funny that Jennie had talked about it several times, others expressed concern that it had taken the concert experience away. While it’s natural for fans to want to capture memories, some people say that Jennie’s constant talk about this issue might make her more serious.
After a long time, BLACKPINK made a comeback, and many shared videos of how calm the audience was as they were trying to get a stable video. Others have shared pictures of just a sea of phones at the show…

At a previous event in Atlanta, Jennie even complimented fans when she wasn’t looking at a sea of cellphones, adding, “I actually really like how you guys actually sing, dance and not just in phone.”
Even though fans pay to see the group, Jennie’s complaints may not make sense because they want to perform to fans, not phone.
