f(x) needs a comeback :/ they're pretty much one of the rare girl groups I like, so I'd hate it if they just break up. They're just so unique! 15& would be nice too, I really like Park Jimin, I wish she'd get more than a solo digital release :/

i have a feeling fx may get a comeback for the 10th anniversary but while it’s a good news to fans. i fear it may be their final one. so brace yourself for the news after their comeback in 2019, if it happens.

f(x) is such a good group, most girl groups are very similar to each other but i feel like f(x) has uniqueness about them. but i think sm is focused on nct lately. and hasn’t amber been wanting to have a comeback for ages? why won’t they let her lol

I think the girls even re-signed with SM just so they could stay as F(x) together but they've been stuck in SM's dungeon ever since.

f(x) at least needs a ten year anniversary comeback ... I feel like SM wasted four years during which they could've released a couple albums as a group and really cemented their legacy as the avant-garde, risk-taking queens. their music was so unique and always ahead of its time. yes, SM used them to try out their new ideas, but it payed off, album after album. these girls deserved so much recognition for their talent and diversity, and I feel like SM is ruining their legacy and just letting them fade away.

I hope so too, given Nara's recent success with acting maybe they might have some renewed interest hopefully but with Fantagio I think they've given up on them to focus on Astro and Weki Meki

I get we all complain that it has been way too long since X group came out with a song. But honestly maybe the truth is that the group just isn't bringing in money anymore. Or they can make more money with another group so they spend more time there. If this is true you can't really blame the companies for following through with the korean idol system we have all already bought in to.

After School deserves justice. The only true girl group that was the "jack of all trades", they were popular and talented. They were just pushed back to make room for other groups that are yet to achieve what they did.

This is sort of a repost considering that you publish the same article about twice a year. Of course, hiatuses can end and therefore the list can change, but I don't think this list has changed since the last time I saw it on AKP. However, you just published an article about Brown Eyed Girls coming back soon, so next time you post this list it must look different.


Also, Dorothy quite clearly disbanded in 2017.

After School = Dungeon Masters (F*ck You Pledis!!!!) They are one of my favorite groups, just Love their last song "First Love" and pole dancing performances, no other group has done anything like that.

And spica and Crayon Pop are disbanded (Sadly), so they don't belong in this list.

Where is Good Day? They just debuted and then they are nowhere. Pristin pretty sure has some hidden issues with the company and with the members as well, I feel bed since a lot of girls have trained for a long time and then wasted their potential such as Kyulkung, Nayoung, Xiyeon etcm

i'm pretty sure they were preparing a comeback but Nayoon hurt herself. She got a tear in her ligament during practice. ive had that happen it takes a while depending on how bad it is to recover from it. I still have troubles will my knee locking up and giving out on me. they said 2 months for her i was out for almost 3 months. at 2 months depending on how bad it is you can walk around without feeling like your gonna fall every step and at 3 months i could actually do things without worrying every every time i ran or jogged that i was gonna fall.

I just do not understand why allkpop mentioned groups that have already announced disband (like official disband announced by the company)? there is no logic on that bc if the group already disbanded obviously that they have been without releasing something for a long time and will not release bc there is almost no chance for them reuning again. if it was to be like that you guys would have put too on the list groups like rainbow, 2ne1, Kara, Sistar, 4minute, dal shabet, WG...

Didn't Spica and I think Crayon Pop has already disbanded? and i think there is rumors that Girls day too (i dont know if it was official). i don't know about the unknown/not popular groups (usually they disband without announcing it so it is natural if people don't know) but by what people are saying here 4ten and dorothy also announced disband

Instead of them i would have put Secret and 9Muses, or T-ara (although I still didn't understand if t-ara really disbanded or not), or The grace (didn't SM mentionated their disband? if they didn't the grace should be on this list)

but let's be frank, except BEG, the rest of the groups mentioned in the article (and on of my comment) are already at the disband level, only their companies do not want to admit that the groups are gone

Love Is Madness 15& - officially their last song they came back with. they didn't go on music shows but they did a music video. a practice video and even performed it at events.


4TEN is disbanded. They refunded their makestar supporters despite making over the goal. The 3 remaining girls are doing different things now.

Sejin of Wanna.b just released a new song and is still promoting as a member with the 4 other girls so the assumption is they are gonna try to comeback as a group one more time.

Dorothy the company disbanded them and are gonna debut them in another group. The last news the company said about them besides their debut was that their next comeback would have a new member since one left and that was two years ago.

Spica disbanded so idk why they are on a list of groups that are officially listed as Hiatuses? They won't do another song for a while if they decided to do anything it will be a anniversary song.


The last two groups I think we all know what's happening with those groups. And the fact that this person got this list from a video someone made isn't right that's plagiarism if the video isn't the writers. Which i assume it isn't since they didn't mention the video or post the video with the post then the writer needs to apologize or give the person credit. I doubt any of that will happen since allkpop is shady as hell.

i wouldnt consider 2017 or shorter hiatus as long. All others are more or less disbanded. Its so unlikely that they find back to another, so many have started new careers. I wish for a wanna.b comeback the most, they were just gorgeous and would fit perfectly into current trends and styles. But i dont count on it.

I wish Crayon Pop would do a comeback. They were a breath of fresh air, music, VM, and personality wise, and every release was better than the previous. When Soyul left they had an official statement that they weren't disbanding...then nothing since.
I'd love more Orange Caramel, not really a fan of After School, but the subunit members have said at various times they'd be happy to do more Orange Caramel material if they were ever actually asked to.

I wish companies were up front about when exactly a decision is made for a group to disband etc.. Why are companies so quick to dispel dating rumors or other personal matters but never transparent with professional matters... Isn't that the priority.

4TEN i doubt they will comeback anymore, they recently had a crowdfunding project in Makestar but i noticed it was “cancelled by maker” so it seems the agency probably thought there isn’t much interest in the new comeback album anyway so they canceled it and the group is likely to be disbanded but maybe not officially announced

If I remember right Sonamoo had a kickstarter or something similar to it to raise money to comeback a few years ago with three planned singles, because the company lacked the funds to do it. That money is probably gone now as their last comeback didn't generate the kind of commercial success to probably keep things going and only two singles were ever released and nothing has been heard from the group since Summer of 2017. That agency was apparently marginal on it's finances, has had recurring issues with its artists suing to escape due to mismanagement, and its CEO/Founder dies in Summer of 2018, so I suspect that group probably won't have another release and eventually we will hear some members are with other agencies or finally get an official notice that the label folded or that the group disbanded. Pristin likely is in a similar predicament in that they just haven't been profitable enough and the company appears to be focusing on just those members who can turn a profit cheaply with individual activities.
