UPDATE (December 17, 2020): Originally scheduled to take place on December 27, BLACKPINK‘s first-ever virtual concert THE SHOW has now been postponed. Taking to multiple platforms such as Instagram, the K-pop group’s members announced that plans had to be pushed back for safety reasons. The change is largely due to the spike in COVID-19 cases in South Korea, which is currently on level 2.5 lockdown. “We really wished we could give you guys a concert before the end of this year but unfortunately due to safety reasons, we decided it would be best to postpone the online concert,” Rosé shared online. “I hope everyone out there is taking care of themselves too.”
BLACKPINK’s THE SHOW is now slated to take place on January 31 at 2 p.m. KST (12 a.m. EST). Watch the latest trailer for the virtual event above in the meantime.
