2017 has seen the debuts of K-Pop idol groups like Bonus Baby, MVP, Dreamcatcher, and LOONA, but none of them have garnered the attention of K-Pop fans like PRISTIN.
Formerly known as Pledis Girlz, the group made their debut yesterday (Tuesday, 21st March) with “WEE WOO”. Their music video has reached almost 500,000 views as of press time, which is impressive for a rookie group.
The group caught fans’ eyes as they are under Pledis Entertainment, also home to After School, NU’EST, and SEVENTEEN. However, what made them popular was the inclusion of members Nayoung and Kyulkyung (also known as Pinky), who were members of the project group IOI.
Members Roa, Yuha, Eunwoo, Rena, and Siyeon also competed in “Produce 101”, but failed to reach the finals. Aside from those mentioned, 3 other members – Yehana, Sungyeon, and Kyla – were also added to the final lineup.
In their debut music video, we see all 10 members dressed up in various outfits such as school uniforms, sports wear, and more. They can be seen dancing cutely while looking seductively at the camera.
“WEE WOO” is included in PRISTIN’s 1st EP, titled “Hi! PRISTIN!”. Aside from the title track, 5 other songs are recorded in the album. They are “Be The Star”, “Black Widow”, “Running”, “Over n Over”, and “We”.
