At long last, one of this year’s most highly anticipated rookie groups has debuted! ITZY, for anyone who doesn’t know, is a five-member girl group under JYP Entertainment; Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, and Yuna are the lovely ladies who have just rocked the K-pop world anew.

But why, exactly, has ITZY been hyped up so much? What makes them so exciting? Well, friends, this gorgeous article will inform you of the reasons why ITZY is everything you need in life and more. Prepare to be amazed (if you somehow aren’t already).

1. They’re the first JYP girl group since TWICE

When you sit down and think about it, JYP’s girl groups are all pretty legendary. Wonder Girls, miss A, and TWICE have set the stage for what’s to come, but ITZY isn’t going down without a fight! In time, I have no doubt that they’ll become legends themselves. Check out the clip below to see some wholesome pre-debut content of the girls, courtesy of the “Stray Kids” reality show.
