Weki Meki (formerly i-Teen Girls) have already received a lot of attention for their unique name, and now they finally have a debut date!

According to Naver, the Fantagio Entertainment girl group will hit the scene on August 8 via an official showcase at 8PM KST.

If you couldn't tell already, the girls seem to be going with a number 8 theme for their concept. A teaser photo for their debut even has the numbers '888' shown on a broken television set, and the group is made up of eight members.

Many K-pop fans are anticipating Weki Meki's debut because the lineup includes Kim Doyeon and Choi Yoojung of I.O.I fame. Weki Meki are the fifth group to debut with I.O.I members after DIA, Cosmic Girls, Gugudan, and PRISTIN.

They're also Fantagio's first girl group since Hello Venus, so expectation are high! Do you think Weki Meki will live up to the hype?
