Background And Release
YG Entertainment released a statement saying that the lead single would be more "intense" than previous BLACKPINK songs but have a "strong rhythm" like "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du", and that the video choreography would be more "dynamic" than previous efforts.
YG Entertainment began promoting the EP on March 25 with a teaser poster featuring Lisa. On March 26, Jennie's teaser poster was revealed. Jisoo's teaser poster was revealed the next day. Rosé's teaser poster was finally revealed on March 28. The official group teaser poster was revealed on March 29. The music video teaser was released on April 2.
The music video for "Kill This Love" debuted on YouTube on April 5, 2019, at midnight KST.
Despite the popularity of the album's title track, the South Korean public broadcaster KBS banned its music video from being shown on television for violating the country's "Road Traffic Act" as in the music video, Rosé is seen driving without a seat belt around the first minute of the song's video.
Photo cards that were issued in the "Kill This Love" album showed members of BLACKPINK with bruises on their faces. This received backlash from the audience as well as critics who believed that this was a tasteless glorification of domestic abuse; with people on Twitter questioning whether any form of abuse should be used for "aesthetic" purposes. Album composer, Bekuh Boom, responded to the controversy on Instagram by stating that the song itself was not about domestic abuse and that it's "unfortunate that people are trying to turn the song and its meaning into something negative."
