It’s been a while since BLACKPINK released music and fans have been eagerly waiting for their return to the music scene. The group’s fandom, BLINKs, continue to demand that their label, YG Entertainment, gives the global K-pop group a comeback.

While looking for a comfortable spot to film her live video, Jeon Somi accidentally opened the door to a recording room. As she opened the door, loud and unheard music blasted out which took the artist by surprise, after which she quickly closed the door and ran away from the site.
Later on during her broadcast, Somi asked and hoped her viewers didn’t hear anything. She said:
"I hope you didn't hear anything, I tried my best to close that door".
I'm very hot right now, 'cause I was very surprised. My heart dropped that second and I was like oh my God."
After a minor mishap, the soloist immediately fled the spot and ran with a panicked look on her face that fans found hilarious. They pointed out that had she not reacted that way, no one would have figured it out or thought about it.
Nevertheless, BLINKs took to Twitter to rave about the incident and stated that they might have heard K-pop idol Jennie singing. Now, fans aren’t too sure whether the song is for a BLACKPINK comeback or group member Jennie’s venture as a soloist.
Additionally, netizens also created several hilarious memes with Jeon Somi’s reaction to the sudden incident after she unintentionally might have leaked BLACKPINK’s upcoming track.
Soon enough, YG Entertainment began taking down snippets of Somi's live broadcast on all social media handles. The agency sent out copyright complaints and emails to all posts that were uploaded.
