For their Born Pink world tour, South Korean girl group BLACKPINK has been making waves. Many Hong Kong and Chinese stars flocked to watch the concert in Macau on May 20 and 21. Angelababy was one of the artistes spotted enjoying the show, but her attendance is now causing controversy.
Known to be a loyal fan, Angelababy had attended two of BLACKPINK’s concerts this year in Hong Kong and Macau, and even excitedly shared photos she had taken with BLACKPINK on social media. However due to the restrictions on Korean entertainment in China, many netizens criticized Angelababy for her actions. Her new drama Twilight <暮色心約> with Allen Ren Jialun (任嘉倫) was suddenly suspended, requiring review by the censorship committee. Tabloids suspect this may be due to Angelababy’s attendance at the concert.
Other dramas are also rumored to be implicated. Peter Ho <何潤東> and Viva Ho’s <何泓姗> Xifei’s Royal Love in the Palace <歲歲青蓮>, as well as Xiao Zhan (肖戰) and Li Qin’s (李沁) Where Dreams Begin <夢中的那片海> were also affected. The production teams denied that delays were due to the implications of supporting Korean entertainment, but rather due to technical issues and the inability to find the right timeslot to broadcast.
