Top Korean Girl Groups: Miss A VS 4Minute?
K-Pop’s world-wide rise in popularity has grown pretty quickly. From the time of their debut until now, there are new girl groups that have already achieved success in just a few short years. Which among these groups are the best, most beautiful, most successful, and most popular.
Last time there were many kpop idols that had big talents and were very popular. Two of them are Miss A and 4Minutes. Anyone who listens to K-pop knows the names like Girls’ Generation, 2NE1, and SISTAR. But what makes a Korean group so different from any other groups in the world?
Their discipline, image and talent are polished and worked on for years, as they spend time in training for becoming a member of a team. It’s important that the girls know their best attributes, but more importantly, that they learn what it’s like to be a part of a synchronised team. Korean groups, especially girl groups, are accurate as clockwork and can very often become the ideal of beauty in their native country.
Miss A And 4Minute Debut
Do you know about Suzy? If so, you must know about Miss A. Originally, the group consisted of five trainees who were formed by JYP Entertainment in 2010. First they appeared in a Chinese variety show performing dance routines and songs as the “Chinese Wonder Girls”. Miss A started their carreers with different stories and in different countries. The group currently has four members. They are Suzy, Fei, Jia and Min. But, sadly Jia and Min had to leave the group in May 2016 and November 2017, respectively.
4minutes debuted earlier than miss A, who had debuted in 2009. 4minutes had 5 members. Cube entertainment, as their label, helped to release singles and albums in South Korea and Japan. Their first single for debut was “Hot Issue” in June 2009 and they continued with Japanese album “Diamond” in 2010. Lately, in 2016 Cube Entertainment announced the disbandment of 4Minute after an unsuccessful contract renewal negotiation with the majority of the members.
