How do two of the biggest entertainment companies manage to get both of their biggest girl groups to disband? That must be a new record. These groups would still be making music if not for poor management and just general lack of interest for artists’ development.
They literally got pushed aside for younger, “cuter” girl groups (which baring in mind this isn’t their* fault either, they’re just working like anyone else) but what both companies seem to forget is that both Wonder Girls and 2NE1 were an integral part to getting JYP and YG where they are today.
I only really started listening to 2NE1 last year and WG two years ago but it’s obvious that their music has impacted a lot of people. Especially girls and women. Not everyone cares about what’s new and people will listen to music they connect with.
And just a reminder both generations can co-exist under the same label. This never seems to be an issue for boy groups.
*EDIT: If it wasn’t obvious, when I say “their” I’m referring to new girl groups, who are obviously not at fault. This isn’t about blaming anyone other than the companies with more than enough money and resources but yet seem to be incapable of managing multiple girl groups properly. These same companies keep up the longevity of many boy groups. This is worth repeating.
