Most Hated Kpop Group
The Kpop group that tops the list of the most hated Kpop band has to be Blackpink. Blackpink is one of the most successful girl groups in the Kpop world. Their songs are all over the world, as much as having fame gives you a strong fan base it also leads to a lot of criticism and unnecessary hatred, and unfortunately, stars have to face both sides of the coin. But when it comes to Blackpink, the group receives hatred for quite unnecessary reasons. Basically, Blackpink has to face criticism for everything including the lyrics of their song, the music used in their songs, the music videos they release, their dance and performances, and also the Instagram pictures to post on their personal social media account. People are ready to point out each and everything they do which is what makes them the most hated kpop group of this year.
Once a member of the Blackpink group Jennie posted a picture she was posing in front of Elon Musk’s space rocket. The Kpop idol received a lot of hate posing in front of the space rocket, her comment section was filled with people calling her a capitalist. There is another incident when Jennie and Rose were flying to Las Vegas under the company’s contract to fulfill their work commitments. But people trolled them saying that they are wasting their money without any reason and that they don’t respect their success. This is the kind of hate and criticism Blackpink has to go to even after being such a successful kpop band. Some people have to say that this is a time of crisis and just because they are privileged they should not be wasting it unnecessarily.

Why Is Blackpink Hated?
There is such a huge audience, every person has a different reason to hate any particular kpop Idol but there are some common reasons why Blackpink receives hatred and criticism. The first thing that people think about this group is that they are not talented enough. A lot of the public thinks that Blackpink has no talent and does not deserve the success that they have.
Talking about their dance, many people have to say that Blackpink is not entertaining in their music videos. They are always repeating the same steps and the same form of choreography. And even after repeating the same step every time, they don’t perform with any energy aur enthusiasm which makes their music video dull. People think that the group does not have any kind of stage presence even during live performances and concerts. It has been seen a lot of times that during the concerts Blackpink is underperforming and dancing lightly which is not entertaining at all.
It is obvious that when we see a music video or go to a live concert we are there to boost our energy and refresh our minds by including ourselves completely in the songs and fun energy. But when the singers of the songs themselves will look dull and give a negative energy everyone will criticize it as it brings the expectations down about something they were looking forward to.
Another reason why people hate Blackpink’s work is that the songs created by the group are very boring as it is a repetition of the same three to four words. Most of the songs created by Blackpink have the same two or three words being repeated in the entire music video. This makes their song boring and less enjoyable. This is also one of the reasons why people think Blackpink is not talented enough and cannot create good content in the music industry. Making songs that have more lyrical content might make people like their music more.
Jennie is one of the members of Blackpink. She is the person who receives most of the hatred as compared to the other members of Blackpink. The reason why Jennie gets most criticized is that she is known to be a very lazy person. Even during her stage performances, she is seen dancing badly and not doing the correct steps. Her laziness corrupts the entire vibe of the group and makes it colorless and dry as dust. People often comment that she is successful only because she is a part of the Blackpink group. If she was an individual kpop star she would never make it this big because of her laziness.
Another member of the group Lisa is criticized for copying Ariana Grande. Lisa has openly expressed her fondness for Ariana Grande, she has often said that she wants to become like Ariana and she idolizes her. Due to her fondness for Ariana Grande, she is often seen copying her style. Most of the time Lisa is wearing the same dresses, posing the same way, and making the same signature ponytail of Ariana. According to people’s opinion, it was good that Lisa idolizes Ariana Grande but being such a big kpop star she should have her own individuality. She should focus on becoming as successful as Ariana Grande but that should be done without losing her own individuality. Her fans feel that she can make more of an impact if she shows her real style and personality rather than being a copy of someone.
One of the most popular members of Blackpink is Ji soo. She is the main vocalist of the Blackpink group. Being such a famous singer she is often backlashed by the audience for a lot of things. The most common reason why the singer receives hatred is because of her chubbiness, Ji soo is a little chubby which is why even after being the most gorgeous singer she is often body shamed by the audience. Another reason why she is hated is because of her sense of humor, she is often seen taking lead in all of the interviews by having fun and making jokes, people complain that she steals the limelight of the show and interviews and becomes the center of attraction leaving the other members of the group behind. People expect her to let other members of the group have equal importance as she is in a team and she should take care of other team members getting the limelight. Ji Soo is not only a singer but also a great actor, recently she appeared in the Korean drama Snowdrop opposite the famous Korean actor Jung Hae-in. The show became a big hit across the world.
The second lead dancer of Blackpink is Rose. The reason why she is disliked by people is because of her overreactions. They think that she tries to look cute during the interviews but end up giving some cringy content that people don’t like. Many people think that day she is a dull cat who seems emotionless. Even if they find Rose cute for one or two seconds, her way of speaking irritates people. They think that Rose should try to be just herself instead of overacting to look like a cute little doll.
Even after being one of the most popular kpop bands, Blackpink could not win the heart of people. Each member of Blackpink is a hated personality and has different character traits. Fans always comment that the group does not deserve the success it has and the only reason because of which they managed to become such a huge kpop band is because of YG. But even after facing so much criticism, there are a lot of people who think that Blackpink is often criticized way too much and people often become unreasonable when it comes to their hate for Blackpink.
It is also believed that people hate this group because it is a women’s band, and accepting the success of four women in a patriarchal world is difficult for people and they cannot digest how successful these girls are. But at the end of the day, this is a huge world with a lot of opinions and thoughts, so we cannot decide who is correct and who is wrong with their hatred. But having so many criticisms has made the group more stronger and successful over the years. They may have many people who hate them but the group also shares a good fan base who stand for them and choose to be loyal to their idol no matter what people say.
