MANILA, Philippines – Source Music revealed on Monday, March 28 their highly-anticipated upcoming girl group will be called LE SSERAFIM.

HYBE founder Bang Si-hyuk first shared a photo with the two idols in early March when the celebrities joined the agency. It can be recalled that HYBE Labels (then Big Hit Entertainment) acquired Source Music in July 2019. 

Alongside the name reveal, LE SSERAFIM also launched its official social media accounts on Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Vlive, and Weibo.
