Upcoming girl group PRISTIN (formerly known as Pledis Girlz) has revealed some profile photos as they gear up for their debut!
Starting on February 12, Pledis Entertainment began sharing profile photos for PRISTIN, with five of the group’s ten members featuring in the pictures so far.
The new pictures also introduce the new stage names for three of the members, which has surprised many fans. Kim Minkyung will be debuting as Roa, Kang Kyungwon as Yuha, and Kang Yebin as Rena. Im Nayoung and Jung Eunwoo will be promoting under their given names.
PRISTIN has already gained a following ahead of their debut, becoming known not only as the sister group of Pledis groups such as SEVENTEEN and After School, but also for their own talents through projects such as their pre-debut track “We” and their covers of K-Pop hits. In addition, members Nayoung and Zhou Jieqiong gained many fans while promoting as part of the hit temporary girl group I.O.I in 2016.
