-Only 8 songs in the regular album?

-With just these songs, how did they manage their tours? Even if they have been earning well so far, what about the future? They can’t keep reusing the same setlist, right?

-Is it because of Teddy’s exclusive producing, or is it YG Entertainment’s strategy? This is quite extreme.

-There are too few songs, but the tour was a success.

-With solos, they have enough songs.

-How do they decide the tour setlist??? Always the same songs?

-During the tour, they probably perform many cover songs.

-They released about 30 songs in 7 years. If you average it out, they released one album with 10 songs every 2.5 years. Still, it’s limited, but maintaining their status with that number of songs is impressive.

-YG really knows how to maximize their value, huh? Releasing songs over 7 years and still touring.

-Their image isn’t overly exploited, which seems good.

-They even included almost half of the singles they previously released in that first full-length album.

-When BIGBANG started, their mini-albums had 6-7 songs, which means half of a full-length album, right? ㅎㅎㅎ But now, with 8 songs, it’s considered a full-length album.

-Why are people upset about BLACKPINK releasing fewer albums?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It’s not that fans are disappointed or that they’re not fans; it’s just people who aren’t fans are getting worked up. Why is that?ㅋㅋ

-Why are so many people upset?
