A Guide to Old-Gen Girl Groups

Time moves on and trends change and people change with them. While I can understand this fact, I refuse to accept it (for now) and I just can’t move on and completely forget about all these amazing groups that have either disbanded or have been inactive for a long time.

With that out of the way, I would like to introduce you to this guide I created, to help new K-pop fans who may be interested to check out a few of the older groups that were around for the 2007-2015 era of K-pop.

(Note: Some groups underwent line-up changes along the way of their careers, so I will be using the line-up that was more recently active to present each group)

Girls’ Generation debuted in 2007 with the single “Into the New World”. Their musical style relies heavily on electropop and bubblegum pop as well as dance music and their image focuses on carefree and cheerful themes but they have tackled other musical and visual styles as well. While they were relatively well-received since debut, their big hit “Gee” is what boosted their way to the top and has made them a household name in South Korea and most of East Asia, with K-pop fans referring to them as “The Nation’s Girl Group” and other similar titles. Their 2010 Japanese debut with a translated version of their 2009 hit “Genie” was largely succesful and they have met further popularity and success in their neighbouring country ever since.

Their best-selling hit “I Don’t Care” solidified their position as a top-tier group right after their debut and their follow-up hits allowed them to remain on top for the next six years after their debut.

Their rise to stardom started in 2011 with their best-selling hit “So Cool” and for the following six years they dominated the digital singles charts with their subsequent releases, a feat which earned them the nickname “Digital Monsters” for their astonishing digital sales and helped them solidify their position as a top group and form what Korean fans call “The Unbreakable Wall” along with Girls’ Generation and 2NE1.

Their first number-one hit, “Honey” (2009) soon followed and the group continued to gain more and more popularity with follow-up singles “Mister” (2009) and “Lupin”(2010), among others . Debuting in Japan with a translated version of their Korean hit “Mister” in 2010, KARA received further love and fame in Japan, making them one of the most-succeful Korean acts promoting in the Japanese market, with some members still working in Japan after the group’s disbandment.

Wonder Girls debuted in 2007 with the maxi single “The Wonder Begins” and “Irony” as their debut single. The Wonder Girls are known as the “Retro Queens” of Korea thanks to their musical style that draws inspiration from the 60s, 70s and 80s and a fashion sense and visual style to match. In the later years of their career, the dance group learned how to play musical instruments, and made it a core part of their revamped image. Their rise to fame followed soon after their debut with their singles “Tell Me” which took their home country by storm and “Nobody” which followed the next year. Following the huge domestic success of “Nobody”, the group released an English version of the song the next year, specifically-made to target the American music market. The song was a hit and the group was the first Korean act to enter the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. They went on to appear on TV and radio shows and even tour with the Jonas Brothers as their opening act and star in their own Nickelodeon-produced movie while working even harder to polish their musical style and skills during their stay in the United States.

They started gaining popularity in 2008 with their song “L.O.V.E” and then captivated their home country with “Abracadabra” the following year.

( @wild-mare-of-prosecution I’m answering you like this because my reply feature isn’t working right now for some reason)

I literally JUST had this happen to me like two days ago.  The reposter outright refused to give me credit even after the moderator of the group asked them to, which was really confusing to me. (The mod got in touch with me to ask me what my repost policies were; I told them I allow reposts with proper credit). The comic ended up getting removed from the group, but the reposter still didn’t understand WHY I wanted credit.

For the most part, whenever I encounter my art without credit and I contact the reposter, I receive polite replies and apologies, followed by them crediting/tagging me.  But once in a while, there’s the odd person that JUST. DOESN’T. GET IT.  


Their claims:  

  1. You can read the signature, so credit is not necessary. 
  2. They weren’t claiming that they drew it themselves so they’re doing nothing wrong.
  3. What’s the big deal? Fanart gets shared without credit all the time.
  4. Artists who want credit are being stuck up and egotistical. <–(Yes, this is something that was actually said)
  5. It’s “just” a drawing, who cares? If THEY were the artist, they wouldn’t care or make a “big fuss” about it.  (HA. Somehow I doubt that


What I would like reposters to know:

  1. Just because you can read the signature doesn’t mean the viewer knows where to go visit the artist. Freelance artists who make money from commissions need the extra bump in popularity so more people will want to hire them. No visitors = no commissions = hungry artist.
  2. That’s right; the art does NOT belong to you.  That’s all the more reason to be respectful to the artist. So you should be a decent and polite person, and show appreciation the artist, who does fan art FOR FREE, IN THEIR SPARE TIME.  
  3. Just because other people do it doesn’t mean you should too. Some people don’t want their art outside of their websites because you never know how it’s going to be used, exploited, or monetized.
  4. You know how in art galleries or museums you see the artist’s name on a label/plaque next to the painting, even though you can see the signature? Giving proper credit is the same. Was Monet a stuck up egoist for signing his paintings and wanting to let others know he was the artist? What’s wrong with letting people know we’re the owner? It’s just a tiny thing I’m asking. It’s important to ME. That should be reason enough.
  5. It’s “just” a drawing to you, but to us artists, it’s more than that.  It’s a product of our hard work, the skills we have taken the time to practice and learn, and the passion we possess for something.

Ear cropping for aesthetics is not ok.

I don’t care if it’s a breed standard or purely because everyone else does it; it’s unnatural and is completely unnecessary.

The only exemption is cropping pinas for medical reasons.

Your dog isn’t there to please your eyes because you want upright ears. Get a breed with natural upright ears if thats what you desire.

Getting removed from a group email list I did not sign up for.

A while ago my email address was added to a mailing list for a church group located in the southern USA. It was a Gmail address and I naturally assume it was added in error.

I deleted the first few messages as there were not many.  After a week or so the volume of email started to increase a lot as there events being organised and everyone was responding with reply all.

First off I sent an email to he address that seemed to belong to the organiser, the one who was initiating the email chains.

“hi, I am not part of your group.  Please remove me from this email distribution list.”

No response.

Over the next couple of days,  as each new message arrives,  I send another one.

No response.

So far I have only been sending to the leader.

Next day I send a reply all. (they are not sending the messages BCC, so I can see all the addresses)

Again,  I am ignored. I try again, no response.

I am now receiving 10-20 of this crap a day. So I take the nuclear option.

As each message arrives, I reply all with porn images.

“since you won’t remove me from the list here is my imput”

I start mild and crank it up. Stuff that makes gaotse look like a gentleman boner post.

I recieve outraged replies about this being a Christian Church group, I reply with something worse.

“I asked nicely for weeks to be removed and was ignored. So here is another fine picture for you. ”

The email list disappeared from my inbox within 24 hours.
