South Korea’s female K-pop group 2NE1 disbanded at the end of last year as its members decided to pursue solo careers. Sistar, another popular female K-pop group, disbanded last week after being together for seven years, producing many hits. Sistar filmed its summer music video “Loving U” in Honolulu in 2012. The four members of the group have decided to pursue solo careers and acting.
It’s common in the K-pop industry for singers to switch to acting when their short-lived music careers are over. There is already a new generation of K-pop female groups eager to fill the void left by 2NE1 and Sistar. Keep an eye out for new groups gaining a lot of track: Twice, AOA, IOI, Apink, Red Velvet, Gfriend, Lovelyz and Black Pink.
