Its hard to believe, but its already been a year since BLACKPINK debuted — and what an amazing year its been for them!
On August 8 of 2016, YG Entertainment girl group BLACKPINK made their debut with their single album Square One, featuring double title tracks BOOMBAYAH and Whistle. The MV for BOOMBAYAH has become the most-watched K-pop group debut MV of all time (with Whistle in second place), and three of their music videos have already surpassed 100 million views.
Only months after their debut, the group won Rookie Awards at the Gaon Chart Awards, Melon Music Awards, Asia Artist Awards, Golden Disc Awards, and Seoul Music Awards, as well as took home other trophies during the award season. The hit group most recently made a comeback with the track As If Its Your Last in June.
On August 8, YG Entertainment tweeted to celebrate the groups debut anniversary.
