DR Music then dove into the issue at hand, revealing what they believe may be the exact root behind the problem: “language and culture.”

BLACKSWAN is a group of members of various nationalities, including language and culture. Therefore, it is a team where various opinions and cultures inevitably coexist, and respect and understanding are required more than other K-Pop teams.
