News of BLACKPINK Lisa being scammed of ₩1 billion KRW ($817,661 USD) by her former manager recently came out, and understandably, fans expressed their disappointment over the issue.
Fans could not believe that Lisa’s former manager “A” stole from her, since Lisa relied on him ever since she was a rookie.
Instead of looking for a real estate property to invest in, “A” took Lisa’s money and wasted it on gambling.
Here are 10+ relatable reactions of fans worldwide over this whole ordeal — and with what has happened to Lisa, honestly, can you blame them?
1. Fans may not know if there are other untoward incidents that happened to them
This is just ONE incident that happened to Lisa.. I'm TERRIFIED thinking about what else they may be doing to Blackpink that we don't know about. They warned us. pic.twitter.com/cfUndFgj8f

2. Fans are concerned about the repayment plan’s feasibility
According to a former YG employee, idol managers earn 25k-40k a year. To pay back what he stole, he'd have to fork over his entire salary for the next 20-40 years. He's never going to pay it all back 😒 Lisa probably knows but settled. She’s seriously too nice for her own good 😭

4. Prioritize your artist’s well-being
This is all YG said about the issue.. Plus, why are you apologizing to us? Apologize to Lisa and treat her the way she deserves. Who can she trust if she can’t even trust those you put around her? Focus on Lisa and take care of her. Put her first and make sure she’s fine, not us. pic.twitter.com/KXRmHl9mPY

I'm disgusted to know what happened to Lisa. He broke her trust, I can't imagine how she is with this whole situation. Lisa is a person with an immense and beautiful heart, and I hope she knows that.

8. It hurts more when the person who scammed you is someone you actually trusted
Wait, motherf*****, manager-nim. We actually liked you and saw you as Lisa’s older brother. WTF.

9. Fans are wondering if Lisa has been taken advantage of before
Remember when Lisa quoted Fake Love lyrics?
"I've got fake people showing fake love to me straight up to my face"
I'm sure the manager isn't the only one who took advantage of a little immigrant girl in a foreign country.

10. Fans are demanding for accountability
1 billion won. 1. BILLION. WON. No matter how hard I tried, I can't think of a way how that manager can repay the entirety of this amount? Just sue him. Put him in jail. And you @ygent_official you should at least be accountable and do something about the damages to Lisa.
