Immediately upon making their debut this year, YG Entertainment‘s BLACKPINK became one of the top rookie groups in K-Pop.
After releasing a slew of hit songs, such as “Whistle” and “Playing With Fire,” the group even took home rookie awards at both the 2016 Melon Music Awards and the 2016 Asia Artist Awards. To date, their four music videos have combined for over 200 million views on YouTube.
With so many accomplishments in under a year, fans are definitely excited about what the future has in store for BLACKPINK. In response to demands of more news regarding the group, YG Entertainment told Korean media outlet Star News:
“BLACKPINK is going to be very active with their music career in 2017.”
BLACKPINK has been incredibly successful in just a few months since their debut. In addition to being praised for their live performances and addicting music, the group members have also been incredibly humble and grateful for their success so far. After winning their rookie award at the 2016 Asia Artist Awards, the members of BLACKPINK had this to say:
“We will work hard to keep improving and become an always-fresh group, so please keep an eye on us. We want to be a group that can make people expect more.”
Although their agency promised that they would be very active next year, they have not yet released any information regarding the amount of tracks that they will be releasing, or the date of their next comeback.
