Rolling Stone Korea apologizes for Blackpink column that said Lisa has an ‘exotic appearance,’ Jisoo not ‘most talented’

  • Rolling Stone Korea has issued an apology and correction today following backlash over their column and profile piece about Blackpink originally released on July 5.
  • Two passages in particular caused an uproar among K-pop netizens, especially Blackpink fans, with one claiming that member Jisoo “does not possess the most outstanding talent in the group as a vocalist or dancer” and another that described Thai member Lisa as having an “exotic appearance.”
  • Netizens were swift to call out Rolling Stone Korea for unprofessionalism and racism, othering Lisa — the only non-Korean member of the group — as exotic.
  • Earlier this year Blackpink made history as the first Asian group to be featured on Rolling Stone’s cover.

Rolling Stone Korea has issued an apology and correction for passages written in their July 5 Blackpink column which were seen by K-pop netizens and Blackpink’s fans, Blinks, as disrespectful to members Jisoo and Lisa. 

The apology reads: “We have listened, have read, and have taken in all the considerations and remarks regarding the recent BLACKPINK column. We admittedly noted that we used inappropriate choice of words and context that led to this misunderstanding. A revised and modified column will be published in the second edition of the print next week. The revised column will be on our official website. We apologize to the artists for causing concerns. We ask for patience with us. Thank you.”
