JYP Entertainment has unveiled its new girl group, “ITZY,” and the five-piece band is already setting the music scene abuzz.

Consisting of Chaeryoung, Ryujin, Yuna, Lia and Yeji, the band marks the first all-girl act from the major entertainment company to debut in four years, since Twice.

The group’s official YouTube channel was created on Monday, and a trailer uploaded on the company’s official channel titled “Prologue Film: ITZY? ITZY!” had racked up over 1.2 million views as of Monday morning.

Each member was heavily accessorized and put on a fierce front.

Yuna cut a stylish figure in a black studded jacket as she held a glittery megaphone.
