Netizens discuss the long-lasting K-pop idol groups

AKP STAFF

Generally, many idol groups don't pass the seven-year mark when their contracts expire as the group members decide to part ways. However, netizens are talking about long-lasting K-pop idol groups in 2022. 

On December 30th, 2021, netizens gathered to a popular online community to talk about how old the popular K-pop groups will be in 2022. 

Female idols: A Pink- 12th year since the debut (debuted in 2011)

Red Velvet- 9th year since the debut (debuted in 2014)

MAMAMOO- 9th year since the debut (debuted in 2014)
Oh
My Girl- 8th year since the debut (debuted in 2015)
TWICE
- 8th year since the debut (debuted in 2015)

BLACKPINK- 7th year since the debut (debuted in 2016)

(G)I-DLE- 5th year since the debut (debuted in 2018)

ITZY- 4th year since the debut (debuted in 2019)
aespa
- 3rd year since the debut (debuted in 2020)

STAYC- 3rd year since the debut (debuted in 2020)
IVE
- 2nd year since the debut (debuted in 2021)

Male idols: SHINee- 15th year since debut (debuted in 2008)

EXO- 11th year since debut (debuted in 2012)

BTOB- 11th year since debut (debuted in 2012)

BTS- 10th year since debut (debuted in 2013)

WINNER- 9th year since debut (debuted in 2014) 

Seventeen- 8th year since debut (debuted in 2015)

NCT- 7th year since debut (debuted in 2016)

The Boyz- 6th year since debut (debuted in 2017)

Stray Kids- 5th year since debut (debuted in 2018)

TXT- 4th year since debut (debuted in 2019)

Netizens then shared their thoughts in the comments: "I feel bad for ITZY. It's a shame that they aren't as popular as their talent or visuals. I can't believe this year will be their 4th year because I feel like 'DALLA DALLA' was released recently." 

"It's impressive A Pink members didn't have a single dating scandal during their 12 years of career."

"EXO really has been in their prime for a decade." 

"BTS is the group that has all three good records, big fandom, and popularity. So impressive." 

"BTS still is writing history. And they are already a 10 years old group." 

"SHINee is a 15 years old group and all the members are still staying with the group. That's something."

How are groups under 5 years long -lasting? I thought the criteria for that was surviving the seven-year curse.
