Viva Girls should have debuted in 2012, but their agency, Media Line, had financial issues and eventually had to go bankrupt. At that time, the girls who were supposed to be members of Viva Girls were 9muses’s Kyungri, Dalshabet’s Woohee, Stellar’s Hyoeun, and WJSN’s Exy and Seola. So, all these girls had left their respective groups for Soyumi, a member of the now disbanded group Kiss & Cry. However, in the end, the group did not come to fruition and all members left the company.

In fact, they have been training to prepare for their debut but unfortunately, their debut never happened and all the members left the agency. Still, many netizens regretted that; if they were in the right agency, Viva Girls could have become a pretty famous girl group at that time. Because, after all, all the girls are members of quite popular groups, and they have demonstrated great abilities. Want to find out about their dance practice as Viva Girls? Check this out!
