What makes a true BLINK? Trick question! All BLINKs are true fans in BLACKPINK‘s eyes. That said, there are some struggles that only old-school fans can relate to. Check them out!
1. The “5 Songs” era that went on forever
New Blinks will never feel the struggles of Blinks when we only had 5 songs to listen to when we missed Blackpink.
Welcome fam. Now we have 9 songs. Tiny compared to other groups but we have 9 songs with quality and swag. We’re gonna get more. Stay strong Blinks ❤️

3. Before TikTok, BLINKs had Vine

4. Being spoiled with teasers
i feel like baby blinks don’t understand how crazy the amount of teasers we’ve been getting is like that’s more than square up and ktl era put together and they usually skip the week end but not this time!

5. The “YG Dungeon”
New blinks don’t know what a real drought is. I really thought they were locked up in a basement back in 2017

6. “Never heard of her.”
New blinks will never understand the pain of having only 1 Blackpink Instagram account and getting like 2 updates a month on it. Daily posts from each member? Never happened. Insta stories? Never heard of her. Getting a reply? As if. 2019 blinks are spoiled in comparison

7. When you had to treat each new BLACKPINK song “As If It’s Your Last”
