BlackPink, which is YG Entertainment′s first girl group debut since 2NE1 7 years ago, consists of talented members that have been training with YG Entertainment for 4-6 years. The average age of BlackPink is 19.

YG Entertainment′s representative has assigned Teddy as BlackPink′s main producer and the producer has written, composed and produced BlackPink′s debut album. Expectations are especially high as Teddy had previously produced hit tracks for 2NE1 and Big Bang.

The name BlackPink signifies the other side to the color pink, which is typically thought of as a pretty color. Pink is pretty, but "don′t think of it as just pretty," and "what you see is not everything." It signifies a team that is both pretty and talented.

Additionally, just how the word "Black" is included in special products, YG Entertainment′s new girl group is "A Special Girl Group."

Meanwhile, BlackPink is currently filming for 3 music videos and YG Entertainment has hired international choreographers in order to successful debut their first girl group. The members of BlackPink are focusing on the last preparations before their official debut.
