We can all agree that the Second Generation of K-Pop has produced many legendary K-Pop groups and idols in the form of TVXQ, Wonder Girls, Super Junior, Big Bang, Shinee, Girls’ Generation, 2PM, etc., that took over many global markets and built a fortune for Korean entertainment companies.
Working tirelessly to hone their craft and adding up to the K-Pop scene, these artists have dedicated more than a decade of their lifetime, and still, their popularity never fades away. But everyone deserves a break, Right?
With all the rush and brainstorming in the world of stardom, many groups go into hiatus or disband when they feel they have given everything they could to the art form. Yet We, the fans, cannot bear the separation from our beloved artists. For this dilemma, SM Entertainment found a creative solution in the form of Oh!GG, forming a sub-unit of Girls’ Generation.
After working hard for more than ten years, many members of the Girls’ Generation wanted to leave the group. But to save the group from being inactive and on hiatus, SM Entertainment formed Oh!GG, a sub-unit of Girls’ Generation, the legendary group, can stay active in the K-Pop scene and debuted with the Single ‘Lil Touch’ in 2018.
Oh! GG consists of five members, Yuri, Taeyeon, Sunny, Yoona, and Hyoyeon, selected from the parent group Girls’ Generation.
