YG Entertainment issued a statement: “We have ultimately decided to delete all scenes involving the nurse outfit in BLACKPINK‘s ‘Lovesick Girls’ MV, and we plan on replacing the MV with the edited version as soon as possible. We will take this opportunity to deeply reflect on the heavy responsibilities laid out before us through this issue, caused due to the fact that we were unable to predict the rise of such a controversy within the length of the MV’s production as there was no external intention whatsoever. We would like to deeply apologize to nurses who felt discomfort from this issue. And once again, we deliver our sincerest feelings of respect toward all healthcare workers devoting themselves to the wellbeing of our nation. Thank you.”

BLACKPINK Agency YG Entertainment Reacts to Criticism of Jennie's Nurse Outfit in 'Lovesick Girls' Music Video

BLACKPINK‘s agency YG Entertainment is speaking out.

Following the premiere of the group’s music video for their new song “Lovesick Girls,” discussion erupted online regarding member Jennie‘s nurse outfit in the clip, with some critics claiming that it contributed to stereotypes of nurses, including the Korean Health and Medical Worker’s Union.

“The cap, tight and short skirt, and high heels are completely different from an actual nurse uniform. The outfit and portrayal directly imitate the typical sexual stereotype and excuse it as a simple ‘costume,’” their statement read.

YG Entertainment reacted to this criticism with their own statement.

“First, we express our deep respect to the nurses who are always staying by the patients’ sides and fighting in the frontlines. ‘Lovesick Girls’ is a song that raises the question of why we continue to find love when we are hurt by it while also conveying a hopeful message. In the ‘Lovesick Girls’ music video, the scene with the nurse and the patient reflects the lyrics, ‘No doctor could help when I’m lovesick.’ There was no specific intention to it, but we are concerned about the distorted views,” they said.

“We ask that you think of music videos as an independent genre of art, and we would appreciate it if you could understand that each scene was made with no other intention than to express the music. The production team is currently deliberating and discussing whether the scene should be edited out.”
