After a summer that’s largely seen Korean boy bands dominate, the women are coming out in a big way in the second half of June. Beginning this Friday, several high-profile female K-pop acts are going to be releasing new music.
First up is BlackPink, the popular quartet from YG Entertainment, who will release their Square Up EP on Friday. It is the first Korean album from the foursome since 2016's Square Two. Their “As If It’s Your Last” from last year topped the World Digital Song Sales chart, their third song to do so. The highly anticipated Square Up will feature four songs, including the single "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du.”
