LE SSERAFIM show they’re truly “Fearless”!


HYBE & Source Music new female group, LE SSARAFIM, have just made their soon to be iconic debut!

This debut comes after a few weeks of controversy. Other than that, the girls have shown they’re truly FEARLESS of what k-netizens have to say about them. The girls have a minimal fashion style choice but with a strong and powerful funk-based alternative pop. The song progresses beautifully and seems to distinguish itself from the current K-Pop scene of mashed up multi-genres.

We hope this is an uphill beginning for these powerful rookie idols. ~Best Wishes!
