With the debut of SNSD Oh!GG, Kpop fans realize that the industry is still lacking sub-units with outstanding concept and color.
Indeed, if SNSD‘s Oh!GG hadn’t debuted, many fans would have forgotten that KPOP once had a flourished era with countless number of small unit groups. Some names can be mentioned such as SNSD TTS, GD & TOP, Orange Caramel, SISTAR 19, Trouble Maker …
Up to now, most of those small groups have disbanded or completely retired from the entertainment industry. It is time for the public to welcome new, more modern and equally talented sub-units with diversity. Users from an entertainment forum have jointly designed many attractive sub-units, such as:
