A self-test was made on May 30 after Jisoo showed mild symptoms of cold. Jisoo’s first test resulted negative, but eventually, the results came out positive on June 1.

Jisoo showed her willingness to perform for fans, since she wanted to keep her promise to those who were waiting for her. However, she decided not to participate further to recover and prioritize her health.

Three of BLACKPINK’s members, Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé will perform in the “BORN PINK” world tour concerts in Osaka, Japan, to be held on June 3 and 4.

We understand how much fans have been looking forward to seeing BLACKPINK perform, and we will do our best to proceed as planned. We kindly ask for everyone’s support and anticipation.

We will do our best for Jisoo’s recovery, and also the health and safety of our artists.

Thank you.”
