Group Name OriginsEdit

"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.[33][10][11]
