Black Pink, a popular K-pop group under YG Entertainment, is gearing up for the release of its first EP in June.

The surprise announcement was made by the agency’s head Yang Hyun-suk, who took to Instagram on Friday to provide more information about YG artists, including Black Pink, Big Bang and Katie Kim, the winner of “K-Pop Star 4.”

Answering a fan’s question about Black Pink’s upcoming album, he wrote, “Black Pink, YG’s one and only girl band, had such a long hiatus. The band has been releasing only singles since its debut, and it is set to drop its first EP on June 15.”
