Of course we have no clue what kind of controversies lie ahead for many of the K-Pop Artists nowadays but put aside that, who does everyone think stands a chance of having a longer career as a group? Of course, some may pull out to go solo but who are some of the groups you think will stay together for a long time like…DBSK, although we don’t know what will happen to them right now. The gap between them is growing wider and we don’t know if they will be able to reach 6 years on December 26th.
In my opinion, I think it would be:
They seem to be the group that everyone loved in 2009. Only earlier this year did I get what all the fuss was about when I first knew the group back in July 2008. Not only do they have powerful stage presence together, but they can also work just as hard with their solo careers, I still feel that G-Dragon’s solo promotions went on longer than expected. Proximately 4 more years, we’ll see.
I’m not fond of any of the members but I have to say their songs are decent and catchy. They seem to be proving worthy of their name with each member different in their own style and slowly taking center stage. That doesn’t mean they could last forever, I give them 3 more years after I heard a rumor their contract runs out in 2012. In my opinion, So Nyeo Shi Dae do not act as themselves on TV (meaning I think they are fake) however, showcasing the generation of girls in Korea with their name, I feel like they have yet to make a stable impression on me and other fans.
One of the most missed groups this year taking an advance to the USA and China. Now, if the Wonder Girls can really breakthrough to America, they can prove to be a group that lasts longer than most groups do, probably the same as Shinhwa whom I understand have gone on for more than 10 years now.
I have to say, 2NE1 left a big impression on me this year, their song, Fire rose up to number 1 in charts and have to be the first group I know that only debuted weeks before winning their first number 1. The problem is, Park Bom and Dara are older than CL and Minzy – the gap between Minzy and Bom is 10 years and I’m sure Bom and Dara wants to get married sometime before she hits 30. To that extent, I would say, 3 years or so. But it’s still too early to tell.
SHINee shine brightly in my eyes and they seem to have good teamwork and seem comfortable with each other despite their differences! Thw worst that has happened to them was Swine flu which has hit three of the members but they have managed to pull through. And Ring Ding Dong has got to be one the most addicting songs that I loved from SHINee next to Replay (Boom Track). If they carry on with songs like this, I estimate 4-5 years and we will see what will happen.
They are aiming to be Asia’s Pop/Dance group and honestly I can say that if Sulli and Victoria’s vocal abilities improve and Amber gets more singing and acting parts, they may achieve it. However, SM has yet to give them an actual pop/dance song that will not be decent or dull after a while a.k.a Mr Boogie. SM representatives, if you read blogs, put Mr Boogie on their next album and make them comeback with a new song. It’s too early to tell for them, let’s see how they fare in 2 years time.
I guess because for the last 3 years, they have not been seen as an idol group until now, Abracadabra was a big boost to their popularity and earned them mutizens and other awards. I think with their vocal skills, Brown Eyed Girls probably have a longer chance than others of probably 5 years or more, but that’s just my opinion on things.
You’ve probably noticed the amount of winter clothes pictures I have picked. But also notice how I did not put my favorite group, 2PM there, well with the Jaebeom situation not dying down for even a week or so, it’s hard to tell how 2PM will fare in the future, it affects me in a way to question if they will live long so I’m not totally sure about them.
Hmmm, I’m not sure who else. You guys can decide too.
