Which K-pop group do you miss more: Girls' Generation or BIGBANG?
Girls' Generation made their debut in 2007 as a nine-piece group. Taeyeon, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, Seohyun, and Jessica comprise the original line-up, but Jessica left the group in 2014. The girl group released "Holiday Night," topping the Billboard's World Albums chart in 2017. But since then, Tiffany, Sooyoung, and Seohyun decided not to renew their contracts—leaving the group as a quintet.
"Girls' Generation is a precious and meaningful group for SM and for fans," said an SM rep, reports Yonhap. "The members are not thinking of disbandment at all. However, since there are members whose contracts have been terminated, we will discuss the future direction of Girls' Generation with the members and make a careful decision."
While the girl group's future is uncertain, they are still together, and fans are awaiting more news and a comeback! Watch the music video to their latest single, "Holiday," below.
BIGBANG released their debut album in late 2006. The five-piece boy band—consisting of Daesung, G-Dragon, Seungri Taeyang, and T.O.P.—are often referred to as the Kings of K-pop, due to their commercial success both at home and abroad. Members of the band enlisted in the South Korean military, but not before scoring one last mega-hit with "Flower Road." The single topped the Gaon Digital Chart and World Digital Songs in 2018.
Back in March 2018, Jeff Benjamin reported via Billboard:
Earlier this month, BIGBANG's Taeyang and Daesung enlisted in South Korea's military program marking the third and fourth members of the group to begin their required service following T.O.P and G-Dragon. Seungri, the youngest member, has shared his intention to join the military after finishing his scheduled work this year which is said to include a new solo album.
Since then, Seungri announced his retirement from entertainment after being charged in an alleged sex bribery case, leaving the group's status up in the air.
