What future awaits BLACKPINK’s Lisa if she leaves YG Entertainment?

By kpoppo on

If BLACKPINK’s Lisa does not re-sign with YG Entertainment, what will be the most perfect choice for her upcoming career path?

As BLACKPINK’s world tour “BORN PINK” officially ended, information about the contract renewal between BLACKPINK and YG Entertainment will likely be announced soon. Right from the beginning of 2023, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding the contract of YG's globally popular girl group. However, over the past 8 months, a series of rumors have shown that YG is having difficulty negotiating a contract with BLACKPINK.

In particular, member Lisa is said to be the most difficult person to negotiate with as she receives many "lucrative" offers from foreign companies. Recently, Korean media also raised questions about rumors that Lisa refused two contract renewing offers from YG. Although the management company denies all baseless rumors, this still makes fans worried about the possibility that Lisa will really leave YG. If this becomes true, Lisa's future without YG Entertainment is a big question mark.

Continue solo activities in Korea

This is considered the safest direction for Lisa if she does not re-sign with YG and really leaves BLACKPINK. In 2021, Lisa made her solo debut with two songs, "Money" and "LALISA." With just these two music products, Lisa has achieved significant success and set records, becoming a pioneer in many categories and the most successful Thai idol in Kpop. She also made history at the 2022 VMAs.

Some opinions say that if Lisa leaves YG Entertainment, The Black Label with the management of music producer Teddy will be the place to help her achieve as much success in her career as when she debuted solo. In addition, Lisa is also a muse that is especially loved by many brands, as she earned about $3.7 million through brand promotion projects in 2022. Therefore, even though she is no longer part of YG, she will still be able to develop a solo career thanks to the image she has created over the past 7 years as well as the strong support from a "huge" fan base.

Return to Thailand

Amidst the speculation about Lisa's departure from YG Entertainment, another possible path for her future career is returning to Thailand. As the most successful Thai idol in K-pop, Lisa has a massive fan base in her home country. Returning to Thailand could provide her with new opportunities to explore the local music industry and connect with her fans on a deeper level.

Thailand has a vibrant entertainment industry, and Lisa's popularity would undoubtedly open doors for her to collaborate with Thai artists, participate in variety shows, and potentially even pursue acting opportunities. Additionally, Lisa's international recognition and experience as a member of BLACKPINK would give her a unique edge in the Thai entertainment scene.

Furthermore, Lisa's return to Thailand could also allow her to give back to her community and inspire aspiring Thai artists. She could become a role model for young talents and use her platform to promote Thai culture globally.

Explore international collaborations

If Lisa decides to leave YG Entertainment, she could also consider exploring international collaborations as a way to expand her horizons and reach new audiences. With her global appeal and fluency in multiple languages, Lisa has the potential to work with artists from different countries and genres.

Collaborating with international artists would not only showcase Lisa's versatility as an artist but also allow her to tap into new markets and gain exposure in different parts of the world. It could be an opportunity for her to experiment with different musical styles and showcase her unique talent on a global stage.

Additionally, international collaborations could also open doors for Lisa in terms of brand endorsements and fashion partnerships. As a fashion icon and trendsetter, Lisa's influence extends beyond music, and collaborating with international brands could further solidify her status as a global superstar.


While the future of Lisa's career without YG Entertainment remains uncertain, there are several potential paths she could explore. Whether she continues her solo activities in Korea, returns to Thailand, or explores international collaborations, Lisa's talent and global popularity ensure that she has a bright future ahead of her. Fans eagerly await her next move and are excited to see what she will achieve in her upcoming career path.
