Last month we had a couple articles highlighting underrated boy and girl bands. Many of you mentioned other bands that I missed in my article. And I agree, it was too short. So, here are 9 more for you, still active, still performing, still waiting for their big break...
GLOBAL ICON GI has had its issues, including a new lead singer set to debut in 2014, but just listen to that sleek sound...pure auto-tuned heaven, undeniably catchy. I"ve enjoyed their tracks; they have a hip-hop sound to them that just does it for me.
HELLO VENUS Hello Venus went through a name change and lineup changes; in addition, the joint venture that created them split up. Personally, I think they are cute and adorable, easy on the eyes and ears, and we need more groups like that in K-Pop. A refreshing change from the usual sexy concept.
EXID I think the reason they"re not bigger is that they released no material in two years. They are incredibly talented, they just need more exposure. These girls can sing!Solji in particular has a powerful voice, and LE is a very underrated rapper.
C-REAL Despite a promising start, this is another band that hasn"t given us new material since 2012. Bright and lively, these girls, now 19, had some amazing, expressive voices as teens that should mark them as something more than merely unsung.
RANIA RaNia"s "Dr. Feel Good" shows that they are practically the originators of the sexy concept. RaNia has amazing singers and produce a memorable blend of R&B and electro-pop. Other than mismanagement, I can"t imagine why they"re not bigger.
D-UNIT This is a group that deserves more love. To me, they have an edgier sound than most girl groups, and I would have thought that alone would have propelled them to stardom, but alas, they appear to have been lost in the glut of girl groups emerging in 2012.
DAL SHABET Dal Shabet seems to shed concepts like a snake sheds its skin. There is hope, however, that their talent might be recognized: their song "Have, Don"t Have" was the most played girl group song in Korean fashion stores last year--another cute concept with music to match, hook-filled and perfect for summer releases. Since we"re now oversaturated with sexy concepts, let"s give cute concepts another go.
TAHITI TAHITI is adept at making particularly upbeat K-Pop; I think it works and works well. They produce consistently solid material, so I don"t know why they"re not more popular. Close your eyes, you might hear the sounds of paradise.
GLAM Memo to Big Hit Entertainment: get your girls out there and give them a mini-album already! Able to run the gamut from pleasant to fierce, sometimes in the same song, they produce incredibly catchy tracks.
Other honorable mentions are Nine Muses, whose albums actually get pretty high on the charts, and Rainbow, which doesn"t get as much attention as they deserve. Of course, there are even more after that--too many to count and too many that just fall off the map!
I feel all of these girls have something to recommend them, and it"s a crime that they are not more popular than they are. Girl groups fighting!
K-Pop has many girl groups: 2NE1, SISTAR, 4minute, Girl"s Generation. But there are some girl groups that don"t get as much love. FIESTAR, for example, who has just dropped their new single. Along with SPICA, EvoL and Chocolat, they are one of a slew of talented artists who are under-appreciated. Well, I thought some of these groups needed to get some more of the spotlight so here"s my list of "7 Underrated Girl Groups".
F-VE DOLLS (formerly 5Dolls) A splinter band of Co-Ed School, they formed in late 2010 and debuted with two singles in January 2011. "This and That" is seriously catchy with fierce belted vocals by Soo Mi, Chan Mi, and Eun Gyo in particular. While Co-Ed School had a lot of potential, I think the girls have tons of vocal talent. They haven"t had much of a hit since 2011, though last year"s "Can You Love Me?" might have given them a much-needed shot in the arm popularity-wise.
CHOCOLAT Debuting in 2011, this quintet has released one mini-album and three single albums. Their second single, "I Like It," was on my phone for a while as a ringtone. To me that song stood head and shoulders above most, from the stutter-y beginning to the point when Melanie belts out, "I want it all." They even dropped an inferior version of the song in English, which sadly didn"t mean penetration into the English speaking market. A group which really deserves more recognition.
EVOL Together for nearly two years, EvoL has put out only two mini-albums. They still caught my ear, particularly for their single, "We Are A Bit Different." SAY and Yull have some pretty impressive vocal power, and Jucy is a more than capable rapper, but I haven"t seen them on any variety shows.
FIESTAR Devastatingly underrated, they"ve recently had a comeback produced by Shinsadong Tiger. In the past, such hits as "We Don"t Stop" and "Vista" have showcased their vocal abilities and are incredibly catchy. Despite strong tunes, the band seemed to languish in obscurity. However, it looks as if "One More" has made into the GAON Top 20, which is good. Maybe this will be their year.
ORANGE CARAMEL A sub-unit of the band After School (one of my biases), Orange Caramel has differentiated itself from After School by being over the top cute rather than sexy. Despite singing in an absurdly high octave, Orange Caramel"s songs are seriously ear-wormy. During Billboard"s Girl Group Week, the girls were nominated for the Most Underrated Girl Group award... but they even lost that one!
SPICA From the retro groove of "You Don"t Love Me," to the more conventional, catchy "Russian Roulette," this is one group that needs better management (in my humble opinion). Bohyung is an absolutely outstanding vocalist. The girls also did an awesome cover of Pitch Perfect"s "Cup Song."Even with quite a few singles, MVs and mini-albums, they haven"t quite "made it." No all-kills for these girls yet.
TINY-G Short for "Tiny Giant" because of their height, these girls debuted in 2012. Ironically, they might be better known for their paucity of height than their music. There was even buzz from netizens that Dohee didn"t look much like an idol and should stick to acting. When that news broke, many commenters didn"t even know who she was! Hardly a promising sign. I"ve enjoyed their music since I first heard the debut single "Tiny-G." Besides, Mint is a breakdancer; how cool is that? Even though they are now a trio, I still "got T-frenzy."
So what are the reasons some of these bands don"t get the recognition they deserve? Some might not be marketed as well as other bands, which is a criticism often leveled by fans, notably towards SM Entertainment. Some might be cute and adorable which is more akin to J-Pop and not as marketable. Still others may not have hit their stride yet, releasing relatively few albums and singles. Reality / Variety show appearances, selcas, and paparazzi -- all of these would help to market these girls better than they currently are. I think it"s up to us fans in some ways. If we continue to recognize and reward talent, I think the agencies will follow. If we spread the word about a band you are pumped for, I think the agencies will notice and do right by them.
