Previously, on June 22, 2018 at Lotte Family Festival Concert BLACKPINK was the first performers. They were supposed to perform “As If It’s Your Last, Stay, Forever Young and DDU DU DDU DU.”
They had performed “As If It’s Your Last and Stay”, but, unfortunately, while they were performing “Forever Young”, a staff came to the stage to stop them and ask them to leave the stage. Blinks are furious over this disrespectful and unprofessional treatment.
