Girl groups deserve to be recognized for more than just doing the cute concept. People automatically link female artists in the Kpop industry with the same concept, but there are so many more unique and interesting concepts out there that need more appreciation. These are only a handful of the creative concepts that girl groups show us.

A Farewell Letter from Wonder Girls to WonderFul

Hello Wonderful, this is Wonder Girls.
It’s already been almost 10 years since we’ve been together.
The moments that we have cried together, laughed, been sad, been happy have passed by us quickly.
Thank you for giving us memories that we will never be able to forget for the rest of our lives.
For 10 years, there were many things that happened and my heart is heavy telling all of the fans who were always on our side first and who believed in us and waited for us for those things.
I am sorry and thankful.
Because of Wonderful’s precious support, we, Wonder Girls, were able to receive a lot of love for 10 years. I’m thankful always and whenever, and again I am thankful and will cherish all of our moments deep in my heart.
Whenever we miss each other and want to see each other, i hope we can heal by listening our memory filled music. It might be hard but wherever, we will work hard to give you strength.
Thank you and thank you, and again thank you and thank you. We were so happy. Our lives were like a dream.
Please remember these moments… Until now, we were Wonder Girls.

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.

Omfg I am part of an LGBT book club in my uni and today we were discussing the lack of happy, fluffy stories about gay couples which don’t center around accepting your sexuality and coming out or homophobia and one of the girls eventually went “Okay, you might hate me for this because it’s not a book, but there is an anime-”

And another girl cut her off and went “Don’t tell me - Yuri on Ice?” And then they immediately started screaming and gushing over how good it was, how it was everything we wanted (especially in context of how there weren’t enough happy stories where the characters just happen to be gay and in a gay relationship) and I quickly joined in and squealed about it with them.

We ended up recommending it to the other people and the president of the book club agreed to watch it and was excited to check it out.

So yeah, Yuri on Ice is now helping me meet new people in uni, and helping me find people who loved it as much as I did in real life. I already thought its impact was amazing, but wow it never stops surprising me.

Good role models for my daughter:

Please add your own! I know there are so many more!
