YG Entertainment has finally put a rest to the ongoing controversy surrounding BLACKPINK's Lovesick Girls. For the unversed, the music video was mired with controversy after the Health and Medical Workers’ Union criticised the agency for sexually objectifying nurses with Jennie's nurse costume. YG Entertainment recently issued a statement announcing that they will be chopping out the scene from the MV and apologised "to all the nurses that felt uncomfortable because of this." This decision was welcomed by the union. 

As reported by Koreaboo, the union issued a statement reacting to YG's decision to delete the scene and showered the girl group with love. "We welcome your decision to change the scenes quickly like the global stars you are. Us, 440,000 nurses will cheer on BLACKPINK in hopes that they continue to grow as global singers representing Korea," the union said. 

They concluded their statement by saying, "We hope that BLACKPINK’s decision not only helps nurses, but serves as a warning bell for the sexual objectification of certain professions that exist in this society." When the video was released, the union issued a statement objecting the scenes. The initial statement read, "Despite nurses being health care labourers and medical professionals, the fact that there are more women than men in this profession exposes us to sexual objectification and forces us to deal with belittling depictions that question our expertise."
