New girl group PRISTIN has dropped the cover image for their first mini album 'HI! PRISTIN'!

SEE ALSO: PRISTIN hit 5 million views on 'We Like'!

An appropriate title as this will be their debut. Along with the mini-album title name are the words "Wee Woo" which is probably their title track. The girls are looking fresh and beautiful just like they did in their concept photos. 

Fall into PRISTIN's charms, and get ready for their debut album 'Hi! PRISTIN' releasing on March 21.

Let's go Pristin! Let's snatch all rookie awards

Exo_Leia Monday, March 13, 2017

I'm excited to see what kind of sound they go for <3

AYMKPOP3ER Monday, March 13, 2017

If Pledis promotes them right, they could potentially be the next BIG girl group. I'm excited though!

The picture of the girls looks really pretty but the rest of the cover doesn't look that great honestly.

Chrysantheneum Sunday, March 12, 2017

I really want to support them, but on the other hand I don't want to give Pledis entertainment any revenue until they take care of Afterschool and Orange Caramel.

NORM Chrysantheneum Sunday, March 12, 2017 know the main reason why they couldnt take care of AS & OC was because they werent making profits/not selling well, right? :(

shiroichanuk NORM Sunday, March 12, 2017

Yes, because of Pledis own terrible management.

exocool Chrysantheneum Sunday, March 12, 2017

Me too... I really want an After School comeback like "Because of you/ Shampoo" and Orange Caramel comeback!!!

forgivemenot1 shiroichanuk Sunday, March 12, 2017

Yeah, lets blame management; Wonder Girls disbands, JYPE is terrible at managing them, 2NE1 disbands, YG is terrible at managing them, 4Minute disbands, Cube is terrible... and so on and so on, it's like the cut and paste fan response to every perceived slight that ignores any fact like in 4Minutes case the girls SPECIFICALLY said if their album didn't sell they'll probably disband, well it didn't and they did, who's fault was that? oh that's right it was Cubes fault the fandom didn't support them! Well guess what, the After School girls spent 6 months preparing for First Love and literally shed blood and the fandom slept on them, Orange Caramel also came back and the fandom slept on them even though both comebacks were some of the most creative out there so now we are left with no comebacks and thats Pledis's fault because in no way will the fandom step up and take any responsibility for not supporting them and just complain because they don't come back because of that, smh, and now a new girlgroup is going to debut who's only "perceived" crime is being under the same label so at their most critical time when they need the MOST support what's the response, "I'm NOT going to support them," and IF they fail because of this lack of fan support what exactly will be the fan response be, oh that's right, it's because of Pledis's terrible management!

exocool forgivemenot1 Sunday, March 12, 2017

Thats true, but maybe fans don't slep on them.. I like a lot (really a lot) of girl groups, and I only buy the one who sounds the best, so maybe their last comebacks were not that good than their previous. I don't know, I like first love but not that much like because of you, shampoo, so I listen to the song and thats it. My point is that sometimes it's difficult to support a group all the time when their comeback is not that good if we compare with an other group. Sorry, maybe i'm not the "super fan" than all groups wants :/

Chrysantheneum forgivemenot1 Sunday, March 12, 2017

How can you make money, if your last Korean release dated from 2014?

shiroichanuk forgivemenot1 Sunday, March 12, 2017

So you're saying that just because I said the management was terrible in this case means that I think that every time a group disbands I think it's because of terrible management. OK then.

Chrysantheneum forgivemenot1 Sunday, March 12, 2017

At least 4Minute and 2NE1 were disbanded, so the artists can move on and make their own money. Afterschool is still under contract, albeit being dormant. THAT'S what I call poor management. When's the last time you heard something from the members, save UEE (who's promoting as an actress). Instead of giving a proper goodbye like 2NE1 did, they're just letting Afterschool bleed to death, while they are slowly loosing fans. The fandomhas been requesting and putting up requests and petitions to Pledis for 2 years, yet Pledis keeps ignoring those. Orange Caramel were doing way better and they also get the cold shoulder. Catallena was doing quite well and gained a lot of popularity, yet Orange Caramel's latest release stems from 2014, which was a part of an OST.

dason Chrysantheneum Sunday, March 12, 2017

Sales has been decreasing since 2011 Virgin, they gave AS 3 album, Flashback, First love and Dress to kill all of them had an ok feedback without outstanding their past releases. Pledis cant be the only one to blame, the fandom werent loyal enough.

dason shiroichanuk Sunday, March 12, 2017

The person just meant it's a typical attitude to blame the agency without analysing the whole situation, the fandom has a huge role in the whole kpop world, a huge amount of After School's fan left when Kahi left, some other loyal fans are still sticking to them :)

exocool Chrysantheneum Sunday, March 12, 2017

What is a "loyal fan"? I'm a fan of the "music" not of the group itself, so if they don't make music or I don't like it, I can't support them...

dason exocool Sunday, March 12, 2017

Loyal fans are the one that will still be there even tho some member has left the group.

Chrysantheneum dason Sunday, March 12, 2017

Who are you to say I didn't analyse the whole situation. You too are quick to jump to assumptions. Jungah left more than a year ago, 2NE1 disbanded a few months after Minzy left. Kahi left in 2012, yet Pledis is still letting Afterschool sit it out. If sales were declining, why are they still under contract. 4Minute stated, that if their album wasn't doing well, they would disband. Which happened short after. Yet 4 years later, the Afterschool members are still bound to contract. Breaking up or a poor release is always better than no activity at all. That's what I call poor management. And eventhough I am a BLACKJACK and 4Nia, I never thought the break-up was because solely of poor mangement, but also it was the fans fault. And while Pledis can't be blamed for poor views or sales, they shouldn't keep the girls in their basement, spoiling their talent and youth

emmasyl forgivemenot1 Sunday, March 12, 2017

I mean back to the time when "Because of You" and "Bang!" were released, they were huge. After School was actually gaining a lot of popularity. Their later releases were famous as well. But after Orange Caramel, Pledis didn't quite know how to manage the group as a whole though. They sort of saw more benefit from Orange Caramel and invested in the sub-unit more than the main group. While the sub-unit was in promotion period, the remaining members were given much schedule except UEE. Also, the "graduation" concept adds to the loss of fame. Sure they had unique concepts, but fans come & stay because of the members. In general, Pledis's management was messy and they probably knew it by now. So hopefully they learned their lesson. This time they did a pretty good job at promoting PRISTIN.

exocool emmasyl Sunday, March 12, 2017

And shampoo, amazing song, masterpiece *,*

emmasyl exocool Sunday, March 12, 2017

Yeah! That song was so underrated though, WTH. They have sooo many unique concepts at the time too, tap dances, drums, splitting group concepts and poll dance. I don't know why they didn't explode.

exocool emmasyl Sunday, March 12, 2017

Yes it's my favourite song from them, so relaxing and beautiful... they do many many concepts, but the problem is the graduation system and the time between comebacks. At this time kpop groups need at least 2 comebacks per year...

dason exocool Sunday, March 12, 2017

Shampoo is indeed AMAZING!

NORM Chrysantheneum Sunday, March 12, 2017

Just so you know OC songs were popular but they DIDNT sell well. Which was really so annoying cos their costumes & marketing were on point :( Basically AS & OC arent examples of where a company didnt promote them well. People just didnt buy their songs.

forgivemenot1 Chrysantheneum Monday, March 13, 2017

You made a lot of different points and most of them show you are not a fan of After School and are completely clueless about how "Kpop" works as a business, while I can forgive the second part it annoys me no end this mythical "basement" thing people talk about like Pledis locked them up and they do nothing, well just off the top of my head Uee has been doing almost back to back TV shows since First Love came out, winning awards for that kicking butt and taking names, she's also been on a couple of variety shows as well as doing CF's and endorsements, she was last year listed as the second highest/richest earner female idol and this year it was revealed she drives a Ferrari California, but I guess it sucks to be her "chained" in the "basement," Nana was also on the same list Uee was on she came in seventh I believe, she practically does endorsements nonstop plus she been on variety shows and she did a movie in China, on the strength of that she got her first Korean TV role in the Good Wife and is currently filming in a Korean movie, again sucks to be her chained in the "basement," Raina has also been on variety shows, released music as a soloist as well as releasing music with San E, yet again sucks to be her chained in the "basement," I hope she at least has a window, Lizzy is at the moment a host on two programs she is also doing CF shoots and was at the National singing contest, blah blah "basement," KaEun has been doing DJing in the summer months and was filming her first role in either a TV or a film, I'm not sure which but if you care you can look it up, but "basement," EYoung is the only one I don't know about but it's widely thought she is currently concentrating on school so maybe "she" is in the "basement" but whatever, musically after First Love was released After School released a couple of Japanese singles then went to Japan in 2014 releasing their first full Japanese album, Dressed to Kill, they spent most of their time there touring and promoting that and they followed that up by releasing a compilation album in 2015 called BEST with a new song Shine, they did a mini tour called Dressed to Shine to coincide with that; at the moment they are doing "individual promotions" which means they are making more money than doing music which leads into the second part when I say you don't understand about how Kpop works, as it would take too long to explain and quite frankly I'm too tired to care to do it just look up who is the second highest earner in JYPE then try to figure out on your own just how that person from a Kpop group not releasing music got there above GOT7 and TWICE then you'll finally figure out Kpop as a business isn't (just) about music.

JM999 Sunday, March 12, 2017

i'm loving everything about Pristin so far!!

Youtoosalty Sunday, March 12, 2017

I saw some gifs them being silly, seems like they have good personality. I wondering what they sound like, im anticipating their debut

dason Youtoosalty Sunday, March 12, 2017

You should totally checkout their V Live , they are such dorks and so close.

colorfuloddity88 Sunday, March 12, 2017

It made me a little emotional when I saw this. These girls almost had lost the chance to debut due to their struggling company, but now they're on their way to debut. They are all beautiful and talented. Stan Pristin! <3
