It’s hard to believe, but it’s already been a year since BLACKPINK debuted — and what an amazing year it’s 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 It’s Your Last” in June.
On August 8, YG Entertainment tweeted to celebrate the group’s debut anniversary.
