But, in an online fanign for her first album ‘LALISA’, Lisa said that she had educated herself about the controversy. He also issued an apology.
Lisa herself was willing to listen and asked her staff to extend the duration of the fanign meeting to 6 minutes from what should have been 90 seconds. Blackpink’s Lisa sincerely apologized and said that she had no intention of hurting anyone.
“I’m really apologizing to someone like them who felt hurt,” Lisa said.
The youngest member of girl group BLACKPINK was even seen crying when he found out that he had hurt others because he did not realize that his appearance could offend many people.
On the occasion, Lisa also wants her fans to know that she truly regrets it and will be more careful. He also promised that in the future he would double-check everything. Not only that, he also thanked his fans for discussing and reminding himself of the matter.
BLINK and netizens are also happy that a fan has taken his time and tried to educate Lisa on this topic. In addition, Kpop fans are also happy to hear Lisa’s sincere regrets and apologies.
