2020[edit | edit source]
On February 26, PINK CRES. released their major debut single, and 2nd single overall, "Roulette". Release events for the single from February 8 through February 9 were cancelled due to all three members being diagnosed with influenza, and all release events after February 26 were cancelled in consideration of a new policy established by the government to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Group Name Origins[edit | edit source]
"PINK" is often associated as cute color for girls and is the group's official color. "CRES." is an abbreviation for the musical term "crescendo", which means music gradually increasing in loudness and represents the group's goal to "gradually grow louder and louder" around the world.
