While MBC has confirmed the return of the variety program Real Men 3, a cast list of 10 celebrities has been disclosed.
Unexpectedly, the list included BLACKPINK's Lisa and former IOI member Jeon Somi's father Matthew Douma and many more artists who weren't very active in entertainment fields.

With the spread of news on Lisa's appearance in Real Men 3, fans began to manifest dissatisfaction toward YG Entertainment on that the company hasn't reflected Lisa's decision. One netizen said, "Lisa previously mentioned that she wants to appear on entertainment program where she could dance, but what's with the military? Why is YG neglecting Lisa and BLINKS?"
The other fan claimed "This doesn't seem right. We've asked YG to collect feedbacks from BLINKS. Although Lisa is quite settled in Korea, she would definitely face emotional differences. Why would YG let Lisa appear on the program where she has nothing to gain but suffer?"
Currently, Korea is experiencing a heat wave. The highest temperature on July 27 was 35 degrees Celsius. And as the weather is expected to be fiercely hot on July 29, the day when Lisa sets out for filming, fans concerns grew big that Lisa will suffer from the heat.
