10 Idol Groups That Have Matured the Most Since Debut

10 Idol Groups That Have Matured the Most Since Debut

While some idol groups (particularly the newer ones) debuted with a strong image that they"ve kept to this day, there are other groups that have experimented with different sounds and images before they developed into the top artists they are today. So let"s take a look at the 10 idol groups that have matured the most since their debut!

----

U-Kiss

U-Kiss has become one of the most popular K-Pop groupsinternationally. When they firstdebuted, they had hits such as "Man Man Ha Ni." Although they have remained true to thequintessential K-Pop dance track sounds (with great ballads mixed in to eachalbum, my favorite being "0330," as well), they have visibly grown asartists. Their vocal abilities as wellas their dancing are on point and harmonize beautifully.

f(x)

Ever since the beginning, the ladies of f(x) have always had an extra edgy feel to them thatseparates them from other girl groups. Although they have stayed true to their original electro sound, thesegirls have really matured from their "Chu" days. I think "Pinocchio" was their turnaroundtrack that really established the definitive f(x) sound. f(x) has a distinct sound and fashion that not only is unique anddistinguishable, but something only f(x) can pull off the way they do.

SS501

Although this choice may seem a bit random (probably becauseit is), SS501 comes to mind when I think of groups who have matured and developed theirsound and image from when they first debuted. When they first cameout with tracks such as "Snow Prince," they reminded me of vintage SuperJunior. However, they evolved intotracks such as "U R Man" and finally their latest track that they releasedtogether, "Love Ya." I"m looking forwardto them releasing another album some day as a full group!

Girl"s Day

Girl"s Day has changed a lot since their original debut as a5-member girl group. Aside from theobvious member change up, their musicality has changed as well. One of their first tracks, "Nothing LastsForever," was a song about female empowerment—they then reverted to aegyo-filled songsfor their next couple of promotions before growing into sexy tracks that become mega-hits today, such as "Expectation."

Big Bang

Big Bang debuted with a 90"s vibe hip-hop image andsound. However, they have since tradedin their oversized baggy clothing for a more refined high-fashion style. They haveeach found their own individual trademark fashion sense. And it"s not only their style that hasdeveloped—their music has as well. We"renow treated to an artistic mix of hip-hop and electronic music that Big Banghas made their own.

After School

After School is another group that has gone through manymember changes—their "graduations" keep their group young, fresh, and alwaysrelevant to the music scene. Going back(not all the way back, but pretty back) to their "Bang!" days, After Schoolalways had catchy songs and great choreography (and of course execution of thechoreography). Although much of thisremains the same, After School is even more daring with their sound and visuals with their latest singles, such as,"First Love."

Shinhwa

When a group has been around as long as Shinhwa, it"snatural that we see many differences between their debut image and current image. Shinhwa is a first generation idol group(they debuted in 1998), but still remain 100% relevant and continue releasingchart-topping music. They went fromblonde, crazy hair that was popular in the 90"s to a much more mature and manly chic image, and theirmusic has become cleaner and crisper over the years as well.

S

SISTAR

When SISTAR first debuted with "Push Push," I thought theywere going to be a bubbly girl group based on cute concepts. However, since then, they have establishedthemselves as one of the top female groups in K-pop, and dominated charts withtheir strong lyrics and sexy concepts--although they do jump back to bubbly songs (e.g. "Loving U") from timeto time which is always a treat.

Super Junior

Super Junior always caught people"s attention from thestart—with all those members on one stage, it"s hard not to notice them. Considering they"ve been around the K-popscene since 2005, it"s no surprise that the group has matured (especially whenall of them suddenly decided to hit the gym and come back with abs). Musically speaking, they have been consistentwith their sound since "Sorry, Sorry," and really followed the, "if it ain"tbroke, don"t fix it" saying with their follow-up promotions.

Girl"s Generation

Girls" Generation released their first single "Into the NewWorld" when they were just teenagers. Theyhad a youthful image that was completely natural—they didn"t need overly frillyskirts or hair bows to show their innocence. Within a span of 7 years, the girls, from their fashion to their music,have matured into Korea"s poster girl group.

That rounds out the top 10. Did your bias make the list? Who did I leave out? Comment below!

What Do Fans Say About Idol Groups' Member Change 'Even The Thousand-Year-Love Fades'

What Do Fans Say About Idol Groups' Member Change 'Even The Thousand-Year-Love Fades'

K-Pop, Idols, Kyuhyun, Super Junior, Jay Park, 2PM, T-ARA, Ahreum

What Do Fans Say About Idol Groups' Member Change? 'Even The Thousand-Year-Love Fades' What Do Fans Say About Idol Groups' Member Change? 'Even The Thousand-Year-Love Fades'The love that fans have for idol groups is extraordinary. It starts off lightly, but once you fall in, you can never go back. Even though you want to forget, you always come back looking for them, and the more you look for them, the more you fall in love. It goes as far as finding out not just the birthdays of your favorite members but also the birthday of the agency's CEO, saying "Thank you for training such great idols" and "Please take good care of them."

But this is a very odd situation. If you think about it, the relationship between the CEO and 'my idols' is the relationship between an employer and an employee. In return, the idols are the products that are sold, and even fans know that well. They just don't say it out loud.

The common member change in idol groups usually occur in groups that are in trouble. To idol groups whose image is crucial to them, a clean image is the best condition they could be in. Thus if someone in a group makes a mistake that is big enough to catch the public's attention, that clean image is gone. So the choice that the agency makes is to replace members or simply to take out the trouble-making member. Same goes for idol groups who are not doing as well as desired.

But if the situation where the 'father-like' CEO pushes away 'his idol' so coldly, fans turn their backs on them immediately. It's the same even if the member that was switched was a member that the fan didn't particularly like. One member of the team is the whole team to them, so when the group that they fell in love with changes, they lose trust in the agency.

Fans' complaints to changing members is great. In 2006, when Kyuhyun was added to group Super Junior, they raised the slogan '12 is 1,' refusing to accept a 13-member Super Junior. In 2010, when leader Jay Park left the group 2PM, there was once again a great flood of complaints from the society.

Knowing this, agencies try to push off 'member change' as the very last resort. They have to carefully consider when to use it if it really has to be used, and to what extent is just enough.

With that said, group T-ara's member Ahreum leaving is quite interesting. It seems like news that doesn't hold much value. Why? This is because it's T-ARA. T-ARA had already switched their members in 2009 before their debut. Two of the previously announced members were changed and the leader changed numerous times even after their debut. Hwayoung's incident was a huge one, and now Ahreum is leaving and Dani is joining. They have been switching their members around as often as they eat.

Fans' responses also were as remarkable as "Again?" and "I'm sick of this." The agency tried to deliver a great group with great music and performances, but all that was returned to them was the lack of trust towards the agency and the group.

YG Plans to Debut Two Male Groups, But Fans Decide Which Debuts First

YG Plans to Debut Two Male Groups, But Fans Decide Which Debuts First

YG Plans to Debut Two Male Groups, But Fans Decide Which Debuts FirstCEO Yang Hyun Suk recently updated the official blog of YG Entertainment with exciting news about two new male groups he is planning to debut. He announced that there will be two groups named A and B for lack of better terms and then went on to drop more details about these new male groups that some might expect to be Big Bang protégés. While group As average age is 20 years old, group Bs average age will be 17 years old. Two of the members in group A were revealed to be ex-contestants of K-Pop Star Audition season 1, Lee Seung Hoon and Kang Seung Yoon, whose solo debut date had already been confirmed. B.I., a 17-year-old rapper who was featured in MC Mongs Indian Boy track back in 2009, will be leading group B. 

As for determining the debut date of either group, Yang Hyun Suk has decided once again to promote both groups through a reality survival competition he is calling WIN to stand for Who Is Next. In some ways similar to how Big Bang made their debut, this time groups A and B will be going head-to-head in a competition to see which group will win the most votes from viewers and ultimately earn the opportunity to debut as soon as the program wraps up. The consequences for the losing group can be as dire member replacement or have the group dissolved altogether.  

The winning group will be using the official band group name, WINNER, and the show will be airing one episode a week for ten weeks straight starting the second week of July. The group will debut the day after the tenth episode finishes. 

 Yang Hyun Suk also laid out further details about the program and Kang Seung Yoons unique role as a solo and male group member in his blog. He also promised to come back with more details next Monday about Big Bang and its respective members solo album release dates.

Years After Their Debut, Three Idol Groups Finally Release Their First Full-Length Albums

Years After Their Debut, Three Idol Groups Finally Release Their First Full-Length Albums

TEEN TOP, girl's day, Rainbow

Years After Their Debut, Three Idol Groups Finally Release Their First Full-Length Albums Expectation, Rainbow Syndrome and No. 1Girl's Day announced this week that they will be the next long-established K-Pop group to release their first full-length studio album.

In the past several weeks, fans have welcomed similar news from Rainbow and Teen Top with much excitement.

After years of singles, mini-albums, and live performances with no concrete album to show for all the hard work, these first full-length releases give the groups the clout they need to compete in the market.

Single and mini albums only give fans a handful of catchy songs at a time, and while they are good for promotion and performance on live shows, they do not provide listeners with a good sense of the idols' full range of talents.In a full album, however, the artists have the opportunity to shine in a variety of songs that showcase their many different abilities.

That said, what are we to expect from the adorably sassy ladies of Girl's Day?

Expectation is their aptly named first studio album which will contain 14 tracks - six of which are brand new songs.The album will also include five previously released singles, two instrumentals, and one remix.

According to Girl's Day label, Dream Tea Entertainment, the girls lent more than just their voices to the project.Member Sojin actually composed the intro to Expectation called "Girl's Day World" and all them contributed to the new song "I Don't Mind."

The track, "White Day" was released as a single last month as a prelude to the upcoming album.

Since Girl's Day debuted in July 2010 they have released three EPs and six digital single albums. Expectation is set to be released March 15.

They are following the recent trend started last month by Rainbow, who also released their first studio album years after debuting.

Rainbow Syndrome - Part 1 came out on February 13, more than a year and a half after their last Korean release as a group.

The album is cohesive and the songs are tailored to the vocal strengths of each of the seven members.It does however, differ quite a bit from their previous singles which have been described as fiercely sensual.Rainbow's studio album focuses on their soft, silky voices and the songs are generally pretty girly.

Rainbow Syndrome was produced and executed well and gave fans a different side of Rainbow, expanding the notion of what their signature sound is.

There is still no confirmed release date for Part 2.

Teen Top was not far behind Rainbow and released their first full-length album,No. 1, on February 25.

The six member boy group debuted under T.O.P. Media in July 2010.Their first single, "Clap," received positive reviews and they were also praised for their choreography.

Unlike Rainbow, however, Teen Top's first album stayed true to their style.

For No. 1, many of the songs offer up the hard-thumping dance pop the guys are known for, but there are sprinklings of ballads and RB for balance, and as a whole it is an exceptionally diverse album.

Differing from the soon-to-be-released Girl's Day project, Teen Top did not include any of their older songs on No. 1 - every track is brand new, and the album is a fresh start for the group.

Especially the title track, "Miss Right," encompasses all that is needed for a successful album and an exceptional comeback: it is extremely catchy and has stellar choreography.

Teen Top previously released four single albums and three EPs.

We can only hope that more of our favorite artists continue this trend and release new, full-length albums with a wide-range of options for fans of all shapes, sizes, and tastes.
