New K-pop Girl Group Features Three Biracial Members
An all-girl Korean pop act set to make its debut later this month will be the first K-pop group to be comprised mostly of biracial Korean Americans.
The quintet known as Chocolat has three Korean American members who are half-Caucasian with an average age of 18, although one member is as young as 14 years old.
The girls have been training “extensively” for the past two-plus years, according to K-pop website allkpop.
We’ve seen plenty of girl groups debut with attention-grabbing concepts, but this is the first girl group ever that’s specifically comprised of bi-racial members.
The group will release its first single on Aug. 17 and make its TV debut on Mnet the following day, according to allkpop.
Check out the teaser video for their debut single “Syndrome” after the jump:
