Scarlet is one of the new K-Pop girl groups that's starting to get a lot of attention. Apparently, they're named Scarlet because it signifies passion and sophistication. Or at least that's what allkpop have to say about it. Sounds about right to me though. But what it mostly makes me think of is The Scarlet Letter. Which doesn't make me think of anything positive, to say the least. So, in my mind, scarlet represents scandal and a really boring book. That said, Scarlet are definitely not boring.
