Soon-to-debut group Le Sserafim will reveal part of its debut song through its debut project.

The six-member act will debut next month and fans will be able to create a “digital souvenir” to mark their “first encounter.”

It will unveil the song partially on the website for the project, dubbed “The First Moment of Le Sserafim,” and fans can pick and choose from images, messages and voices of the bandmates for a unique combination.

The website currently has portraits of the members that only shows parts of their faces but will officially open on Monday next week.

The group is the first female band launched by a label under Hybe. The company announced earlier this week that Hybe Chairman Bang Si-hyuk will be the head producer. The members include Miyawaki Sakura and Kim Chaewon, formerly of IZ*ONE.

Big Bang gave fans a taste of its upcoming song “Still Life” on Friday.

Label YG Entertainment uploaded a poster on the day that included part of the lyrics from the song that roughly translates as, “Our spring summer fall winter will be beautiful.”

The accompanying image struck a contrast with the hopeful words, however, showing a man with his face painted white like a clown sitting wearily.

The new song is a condensed embodiment of the bandmates’ past, and contains their sincere music and message, said the firm.

The song will be fully unveiled on April 5, about four years since their last single, “Flower Road.”
