YG Entertainment will soon shake up the K-pop world with their new girl group.

Black Pink's debut date has been confirmed by YG to be Aug. 8. 

According to an official YG press release on July 29, the agency was deciding between two dates, Aug. 1 and Aug. 8, to debut the group. However, they have now chosen the final date as Aug. 8. In the press release, they also stated that the group is finishing up preparations for their debut.

In the teaser images, the four members of the group are holding their hands in a circle with their pinkies and index fingers touching, with the text "Aug 8th 8 PM." From this, it looks like Black Pink's debut music video will be released at 8 PM on Aug. 8.

Black Pink will be the first girl group that YG has debuted in 7 years, ever since 2NE1 debuted in 2009. Out of countless trainees over the past 6 years, four have become members of Black Pink. 

The reason they chose the name "Black Pink" is because they wanted to express pink as the prettiest color, but also wanted to show that their looks aren't everything and that there's more to them than meets the eye.
