Recently, the American music ranking site Billboard published a list of their critics choices for most influential K-pop girl groups. They chose the groups based on their impact in shaping the K-pop industry over the last decade.
Coming in at No. 1 was none other than Girls Generation. Billboard highlighted that since the track Gee came out in 2009, the girls have taken the K-pop scene by storm. They stayed true to their sound and released many more hits like I Got a Boy and Tell Me Your Wish (Genie). The article also talked about how the members of the group are all pursuing solo activities but plan to make a comeback with a special 10-year anniversary album.
