K-pop superstars Blackpink recently renewed their agency contract as a group, ensuring that the quartet will continue to perform together.

The news followed months of contract negotiations during which fans feared the group could split up.

Blackpink, formed in 2016, have become the world’s biggest K-pop girl group.

The new contract is believed to be among the most lucrative signed by any music group this year.

The four members – all in their 20s – are celebrities in their own right. Their official YouTube channel has more than 92 million subscribers, while each of them has more than 70 million followers on Instagram.

They have represented some of the biggest fashion brands, such as Chanel and Dior, and headlined major international music festivals such as Coachella and BST Hyde Park.
