spica honestly had more talent in ONE member than a lot of groups have in a whole. not shade, just facts. every member had the vocal chops to go toe to toe with some of the best if they wanted. boa was the vocal coach for INFINITE and recorded demo songs for several groups, including news by nine muses. boa and sihyun were both vocals WITH rapper abilities. bohyung honestly snatched my edges with EVERY damn note. and narae was literally a fresh but power vocal and jiwon slayed every note with her cute af lisp. and this is honestly an example of why the kpop industry and “fans” have placed an expiration date on girl groups due to age. talent doesn’t matter to them. it’s who is cute and young and it NEEDS to stop
I remember when you five debuted and everyone went hysteric over the fact there was finally a girl group in the industry in which all could sing with extended vocal ranges that weren’t limited to high pitch (not dissing other ggs but this was just refreshing to see).
Kim Boa- you proved to listeners that you are freaking worthy of your position as a vocal coach of many successful groups in the industry.
Kim Bohyung- you proved constantly that powerhouses can exist in k-pop
Park Narae and Yang Jiwon- you two proved that being tied down to girl group visual roles isn’t simply enough and earned the titles of vocal beauties
Park Sihyun, my bias- you proved to listeners that rappers can make equally amazing vocalists.
You girls had so so so much potential and I thought to myself just one more push- one more push and they’ll make it; they’ll finally deserve the recognition they deserve.
But no, unfortunately it never happened because disbandment news have arrived five years too early.
I am just enraged that these girls have started underappreciated and ended underappreciated. Year after freaking year us supporters have said “these girls are underrated”hoping for the day we wouldn’t have to say that anymore and instead replaced by “finally, finally our girls have made it”.
I remember when MAMAMOO debuted afterwards and everyone said “yay, we have SPICA AND MAMAMOO that are vocal powerhouses” and I’m so happy that MAMAMOO are climbing in success and recognition,
but why, why is SPICA not? is it the songs, the concepts, the management, the people? it’s probably all of those factors combined and I’m just wondering what if they were in a different company, what if they had a different concept, what if people didn’t f**king sleep on them?
Where would they be? Unfortunately that will forever remain a question.
Thank you SPICA for blessing us with immense talent over the past five years- it breaks me that you five are parting ways but nonetheless I’ll support your future endeavors.
I really teared up with Jiwon’s performance on The Unit. Spica was one of the groups I really rooted for. With so much talent and personality, they could go places, but once again, bad publicity did them no justice at all. I actually lowkey hope Spica can pull a Highlight after The Unit (since they are still close) and finally rise.
