2012/13 was the last great era for boy groups, the last time every group was consistently putting out bangers. EXO broke out, BB put out the trio with Fantastic Baby, SHINee had Sherlock and Everybody, SuJu had Sexy Free and Single (okay, yeah, this one wasn't great). Winner and Ikon were going at it on their reality show (Climax!). Infinite with The Chaser, FT Island and CN Blue were still going strong and Highlight was still Beast.
