YG Entertainment's long, long, long-awaited girl group has finally been unveiled, and now we know that the group's 4 beautiful members - Jennie Kim, Lisa, Rosé, and Jisoo - will be making their debut soon as Black Pink


On June 28, a rep of YG provided more details regarding the rookie group, including the meaning behind the unique group name. The rep stated, "The meaning of Black Pink aims to contradict the common perception of the color pink. Pink is commonly used to portray prettiness, but Black Pink actually means to say that 'Pretty isn't everything'. It also symbolizes that they are a team that encompasses not only beauty, but also great talent."

    I think the reason why everyone's focusing on the name is because we don't know too much about them. A lot of successful groups have names that probably a lot of people didn't like but eventually started to like. I was like WUT when I saw Winner's gonna be Winner lmao. Even Winner was disappointed. But you get used to it and eventually like it.:3 They just have to make that name theirs.
