Korean entertainment company SM Entertainment has finally unveiled the pictures of their new girl group Red Velvet.

Teaser clips and images were released on July 27 with the new idol group's four members Irene, Seulgi, Wendy and Joy posing as they show off their cute and bubbly concept. 

Red Velvet will be releasing its very first song titled "Happiness" on August 4. It will be the newest group that is debuting under SM Entertainment since boy group EXO two years ago, according to Yahoo Entertainment Singapore.

Irene, Seulgi and Wendy have all been introduced to K-pop fans through SMROOKIES, SM Entertainment's trainee system. Joy was selected from "2012 SM Global Audition in Seoul" and has also undergone SM training.

"The group's name Red Velvet brings together red, a fiery and seductive color, and velvet, which evokes feminine and soft images. As its name suggests, Red Velvet seeks to impress the world with its unique colors as well as polished music and performances," stated the girls' agency, according to Asia One.

SM Entertainment has churned out K-pop superstars including Girls' Generation, Super Junior, f(x) and SHINee so expectations are high for the debut of Red Velvet.

Although most K-pop fans are beyond excited for Red Velvet to enter the Korean pop industry, the group has already been receiving backlash because their debut will put an end to f(x)'s promotions of their recent track "Red Light."

Despite the criticism the group is receiving before their debut, it seems that they've already been welcomed into the SM Entertainment family.

In lieu of the four-member idol group's upcoming single, Super Junior member Yesung posted a picture of himself with rookie idol member Seulgi on his Twitter account in order to celebrate the new singer's official debut into the K-pop world.

The two are seen posing for the camera along with the caption, "Red Velvet Seulgi and Yusung debut congrats."
