YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun-seok’s trust in the newly-released girl group BLACKPINK continues to be well-validated.

The seasoned YG executive’s positivity in the band was strengthened as the two hit songs, which were revealed at midnight, grabbed Korea’s seven major online music sites, this includes Mnet and Bugs, with “Playing with Fire” in the lead, followed by “Stay.” Not a small feat for the quartet that came out around 4 months ago.

In August 2016, at a showcase concert in Seoul that presented the group, Yang said that Girl groups are five times tougher to create than boys.

“Girl bands have just too many things to fix compared to boys,” said Yang, the former K-pop idol from the iconic band Seo Taiji and Boys. “But I have seen them for the past six years practicing. I believe in them.”

With three months after BLACKPINK acquired popularity with hits “Whistle” and “Boombayah,” the dance-music band on Tuesday launched its second mini album, “Title Two,” containing lead tracks “Playing with Fire” and “Stay.”
