Mega K-pop group BLACKPINK recently dropped the first concept teaser for their pre-release single "Pink Venom", which will be a part of "BORN PINK", the upcoming second album.

The quartet, comprising Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé, and Lisa, are seen exuding a glamorous vibe in pale pink outfits paired with black accessories, as the photos capture them with a cracked glass screen that resembles the web of a spider.

Earlier the group's official Twitter account also shared individual concept teasers for each of the four superstars.
