BLACKPINK was previously announced as performers at the K-ASIAN Festival in Incheon alongside MAMAMOO, WINNER, HyunA and more, but since July 30, their names have been removed from the lineup.
BLACKPINK’s pulling out of the festival is leading BLINKs to believe that they’re making way to attend the VMAs.

The festival will take place from August 23-25 while the VMAs will be held on August 26, and BLACKPINK is nominated in the new yet controversial “Best K-Pop” category.
Of course, BLINKs don’t want to get their hopes up as nothing has been confirmed by MTV nor YG Entertainment, but the timeline does match up perfectly.

Fans are divided on whether or not they want to see BLACKPINK attend the VMAs, but if they do they’re sure to serve breathtaking looks on the red carpet and maybe even a show-stopping performance.
