The 2nd-Gen K-Pop Girl-Group, Spica

If we take a look back, there used to be a talented girl-group called Spica, which means “the brightest star”, in the era of second generation idols. This girl-group consisted of five talented and pretty girls, they were Boa, Sihyun, Narae, Jiwon, and Bohyung. Spica debuted on January 10, 2012, under B2M Entertainment with their first digital single, Doggedly. The MV debut could be said to be a success one because their fellow labelmates, singer Lee Hyori, appeared in it as a gesture of support for the new group. They also made a sub-unit, called Spica.S, which consisted of Boa, Sihyun, Narae, and Jiwon.

Despite having a good career plan to guide them to their success, Spica didn’t last too long. In 2017, the label officially announced that the group should be disbanded and continue their careers on their own paths. It was very unfortunate, since their songs always displayed the group’s sultry voices through a variety of sounds built to show off their powerhouse vocals.
