BLACKPINK THE PALACE, the band’s first persistent immersive experience on Roblox to launch August 25. BLINKs (BLACKPINK fans) around the world can now come together and enjoy some of BLACKPINK’s favorite digital fashion, choreography, interactive spaces, and more.

London, UK, 22nd August 2023 YG PLUS, a subsidiary of YG Entertainment, today announced that global K-pop band BLACKPINK will be launching its immersive fan hub,  , on August 25. BLACKPINK THE PALACE brings BLINKs from around the world together on Roblox, a global immersive platform where millions of people connect and communicate daily, to party, dance, and live all things BLACKPINK.

Inside the palace, fans can meet, socialize, and enjoy content from the band, visit various spaces designed around BLACKPINK’s iconic music video scenes, and enjoy some of the artists’ favorite things–from digital fashion to signature choreography. BLACKPINK THE PALACE – built by metaverse studio, Karta – is the band’s first persistent immersive experience on Roblox and will be updated with new content year-round for BLINKs to enjoy together any time, any day.

A new way for fans to engage with the band, BLACKPINK THE PALACE also offers interactive experiences and challenges to its visitors. For example, BLINKS can take pictures with the band members’ avatars, explore a majestic throne room, and earn in-experience currency to decorate and host BLACKPINK-themed parties for their friends. In the caverns below the palace, users can pick up a hammer shaped like a BLACKPINK lightstick to smash crystals and gain more power to upgrade their in-experience items. Finally, BLINKs can also purchase BLACKPINK’s signature outfits and emotes for their avatars to channel their favorite artists’ style and practice their iconic choreography.


“We look forward to welcoming fans from all over the world to a beautiful virtual palace where they can party, connect, and experience everything BLACKPINK beyond the constraints of time and space,” said Hyojung Lee, Head of IPX Division at YG PLUS, commenting on the launch of BLACKPINK THE PALACE. “Fans will be surprised to see and have an opportunity to take selfies with avatars of all four members of BLACKPINK–JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ and LISA.”
