Contract Expiration Looms for Lisa’s Future at YG Entertainment. As the expiration date of BLACKPINK member Lisa’s exclusive contract with YG Entertainment approaches in August, the likelihood of her contract renewal has become increasingly uncertain.
Reports suggest that discussions between Lisa and the agency have not yielded positive results, leaving both parties unable to reach an agreement. YG Entertainment is eager to find a resolution before the contract expires, but significant differences between the two sides pose a challenge.

Initial rumors regarding Lisa’s contract situation originated from a Chinese source. An anonymous Chinese agency, responsible for coordinating schedules with YG and Lisa, expressed difficulty in discussing Lisa’s schedule beyond August due to the uncertainty surrounding her contract renewal:
