BTS and BLACKPINK are the representative K-Pop acts that have taken the industry to a global level. Both groups continue to reach new heights of success with their every new released. BTS’ last release was their anthology album Proof, with the title track “Yet To Come”. While BLACKPINK made their comeback with their second studio album Born Pink, with singles “Pink Venom” and “Shut Down”.
As the two biggest names in the K-Pop industry, fans are always waiting for BLACKPINK and BTS interactions. Even though a collab between the groups seems unlikely in the near future, there may be an opportunity to see them perform at the same event.
It has been reported by K-media that the “legendary” Woodstock festival is coming to Korea with the theme of “freedom, peace and love.” The report states that it was planned that world-famous artists such as BTS BLACKPINK, and Cho Yong-pil will appear on the stage. The number of visitors is expected to be about 150k to 200k.
“The festival will be held from July 29 to 30, at the Hantangang River Geopark complex, in Pocheon, Gyeonggi Province in memory of the 70th anniversary of the Korean War armistice agreement, SGC Entertainment announced Friday.”
The company said it has signed an official copyright agreement with the Woodstock Music and Art Fair to host the three-day festival in Korea.
Woodstock apparently has a problematic history and many fans do want BLACKPINK or BTS to associate themselves with the festival.
With BLACKPINK being busy with their World Tour and BTS members joining the military, this does not seem like a likely thing to happen, anyway. According to the report, the groups’ presence at the festival has not been confirmed, they were merely considered to be part of the lineup, if this actually ends up happening is yet to be seen.
