Watch: BLACKPINK Teases Upcoming Comeback Track + Reveals Jennie Recently Injured Her Leg
BLACKPINK has shared an update on their highly-anticipated June comeback!
Earlier this week, YG Entertainment confirmed that BLACKPINK had finished recording their new album and was planning to make their return sometime in June.
On May 9, Jennie took to Instagram Live to reveal that she and the other BLACKPINK members had gathered in the studio to prepare for their upcoming comeback. After greeting her fans, she turned to her bandmates and asked, “Why are we in the studio today?” Rosé, whose voice could be heard off-camera, excitedly replied, “For our music video meeting! This is news for our BLINKs!”
Jennie chimed in, “Yes, we’re in the studio nearly every day these days to prepare for our comeback.” She went on to playfully ask their fans, “You’re curious about our [music video], right? We’re really curious, too.”
Jisoo then gave fans a “sneak peek” of their upcoming comeback track, announcing, “I’ll explain our song for this [comeback],” before rising to her feet and expressing the song through an interpretive dance. She added at the end, “And then Lisa dances something like this.” Jennie responded by laughing, “Really? That kind of feeling? In my opinion… no, this isn’t easy. I can’t explain it.”
Jisoo: I shall explain this time's (comeback) song
Jennie: Really? That feeling? For me…. it's kinda like… ah.. I can't explain it

Jennie also revealed during the broadcast that she had recently suffered a leg injury. She explained, “Recently, during our time off, I was exercising a lot. Jisoo warned me not to go overboard, but one day, after finishing Pilates, I felt like it wasn’t enough. I wanted to sweat some more. So I started running on a treadmill that I recently installed at home.”
Switching to English, she laughed, “This is so stupid that I don’t even know how to explain. So basically, I was running, and yes, I tripped myself. On my own ankle. And now my ligament is a little hurt.”
Returning to Korean, she continued, “So I think I’ll be using crutches and a cast for a while, but I held this live broadcast to tell you that you don’t need to worry. It’s been a few weeks, so I’m already much better, and it won’t affect the comeback at all. I’m still attending physical therapy every day.” She jokingly added in English, “I have an event coming up next week, and if you guys see me limp a little bit, it would be great if you ignored it.”
We hope Jennie makes a full recovery soon!
