Article: Acknowledged as the monster rookies... Black Pink 'all kill' on all digital charts first day of debut

1. [+253, -46] So apparently they have an all kill... but I can't bring myself to care
2. [+230, -56] Putting everything aside, their song is just so bad. People are probably just listening because it's YG's new girl group...? They don't have that freshness that 2NE1 first had when they debuted
3. [+146, -46] The group itself is pretty well rounded in terms of dancing and singing but they don't have that fresh rookie feel. They feel like a girl group that's been around for a few years... they're so good that there's nothing new about them and so nothing holds my attention.
4. [+18, -4] I thought A Pink's Naeun was in this group for a second
5. [+13, -3] Their music video is totally 2NE1, and a bit bizarre too
6. [+10, -1] I listened to 'Whistle' and it sounded like 2NE1 was singing it... pretty boring actually. Nothing new from YG it seems ㅋ
7. [+10, -0] People are probably taking a listen out of curiosity...
8. [+9, -4] Looks like some fandoms are feeling scared ㅋ I was actually thinking that YG delivered this time. They didn't go the route with having a ton of members and just made a dream team with four.
1. [+980, -169] Gotta give it to YG for coming out with powerful rookies. The problem is that their debuts always hit daebak and then they get stuck on the backburner...
2. [+1,085, -255] They'll hit super daebak if they come out with a song like 'Lonely' or 'Ugly' someday
3. [+1,293, -346] Honestly their songs didn't hit a chord with me at first but 'Whistle' is pretty addictive!! It's a good song
4. [+449, -66] 'Whistle' is the better song compared to 'Boombayeh', it's more unique
5. [+948, -258] 'Whistle' is the type of song that makes you go "eh?" at first but it's actually quite classy sounding the more you listen to it. They don't sound like rookies at all.
6. [+66, -9] I want to hear 'Whistle' live from them
7. [+83, -18] Their MVs were pretty high quality~ and the members are all thin and pretty and unique enough individually. Can't wait ^^
8. [+62, -11] As if it isn't amazing enough that YG debuted a girl group but the members are all pretty at that too
Article: YG style? Black Pink is basically a 'younger and pretty 2NE1'

1. [+112, -10] I don't know if it's their voice or their singing style but they sound exactly like 2NE1
2. [+83, -12] They didn't live up to expectations... or maybe I expected too much? Nothing unique about their voices and they're quite disappointing overall as a YG fan although I will be watching over them a bit more. I can't deny that the article title is true though...
3. [+69, -20] Twice and IOI are pretty and even younger too. But judging from the MVs alone, there's a huge gap in skills. I think some are just jealous that this group is going to do well.
4. [+22, -5] They're pretty but don't have the impact that 2NE1 had...
5. [+20, -3] They needed a song like 2NE1's 'Fire'
