YG Entertainment\'s new girl group Black Pink reveal meaning of their group name
YG Entertainment\'s long, long, long-awaited girl group has finally been unveiled, and now we know that the group\'s 4 beautiful members - Jennie Kim, Lisa, Rosé, and Jisoo - will be making their debut soon as Black Pink!
On June 28, a rep of YG provided more details regarding the rookie group, including the meaning behind the unique group name. The rep stated, "The meaning of Black Pink aims to contradict the common perception of the color pink. Pink is commonly used to portray prettiness, but Black Pink actually means to say that \'Pretty isn\'t everything\'. It also symbolizes that they are a team that encompasses not only beauty, but also great talent."

Sounds like Black Pink are far more than just colors! What are your thoughts on their meaningful name?

The meaning is cool, but the name still sounds weird when you say it. Also, all of the members are really pretty and the meaning is "being pretty isn\'t everything"? Then why don\'t you have an ugly member if being pretty isn\'t everything? I\'m just saying this name would have fit an "ugly" group better.
I\'m liking everything so far but I hope this hype is worth it. I hope their debut doesn\'t fail our expectations.
ok, i like the meaning, but does every K-pop group have to have some special meaning behind their name? Can\'t it just be "I thought it sounded cool"
i like to know the concept, but if the meaning is "sounded cool" is okay. a meaning is a meaning anyway, i think that has no rules to define a (group name) meaning (:
it doesn\'t matter what their name is for, it\'s going to be forgotten anyways since they will be overshadowed by the future nation\'s gg twice
Stupid name from a stupid group with wannabee 2ne1 members lol
I like the meaning, but saying the name aloud doesn\'t flow well to me. Lol.
APINK BLACK PINK. I stan Apink now I\'ll also stan Blackpink
Probably the only girl group I\'ve anticipated. YG-nim, make them a hit...
