How Famous K-pop Groups looked like when they first debuted versus the end

AKP STAFF

K-Pop groups exist on contracts that are usually 7 years long. While some groups go on to sign with their company for another term, others choose to go their separate ways. This might imply disbandment in some cases while in others, the members leave their company but continue to stay together as a group despite now belonging to separate companies. A recent example of this is GOT7. All the members of GOT7 left JYP Entertainment and joined other labels but the group has not disbanded. There can be other causes of disbandment too, such as mistreatment from the company, a conflict between the members, and more. However, one thing is certain, it is always painful when it happens. 

Let's take a trip down memory lane and see how some of these famous K-pop groups looked when they first debuted versus the end.

After school has the most satisfying photo(final one)out of all. It is so well themed.

I started listening to a lot of these groups when I first got into K-Pop. How time flies... Also, how stacked were the girl groups in that era compared to today? I remember around 2009 when girl groups dominated the K-Pop scene w/ songs like "Gee", "Genie", "Fire", "I Don't Care", "Mister", "Abracadabra", "Hot Issue", and "Because of You". That year was also the year in which 2NE1, f(x), T-Ara, 4Minute, and After School debuted.
