As you ever thought there arenâ€™t any girl groups to debut anymore, well you are wrong because there are 12 more groups that are expected to make their debut this year, marking the second half of 2011!! On the 16th of May, SBSâ€™s One Night in TV Entertainment had reported about the girl groups right now had make a research that revealed that 10 girl groups debuted in the first half of 2010 alone. They had then also revealed a very shocking news as there will be twelve new girl groups and five boy groups that are going to make a debut later in this year.
One of the professors of sociology in the Kookmin University had stated, â€œThe 30-40 age group is now taking part in cultural activities. Because they have jobs, their consumer power is greater than any other age group. Now that theyâ€™re standing at the center of pop culture, the market is turning to cater to them.â€
The CEO of the Starship Entertainment had also revealed, â€œGirl groups achieve a bigger effect when they first debut in the industry. Boy groups are a lot slower in comparison, and I think itâ€™s because of the images they choose to portray.Â Itâ€™s a lot easier to approach the public with girl groups than it is with boys.â€
This girl group craze had already reached this line of when it is going to be in a horror film that is dedicated on it. As it was previously reported, T-araâ€™s Eunjung will be going to cast as one of the leading members of a fictional girl group in â€œWhiteâ€. Within the difference of reality and fiction, Eunjung stated, â€œItâ€™s a story about the jealousy and ambitions that surrounds girl groups, and Iâ€™m sure that a lot of people who see it will agree that this is how things really are.â€ And directors added, â€œWe held a lot of auditions, but there werenâ€™t a lot of people who could stand on par with real idols.Â Never did we imagine that thereâ€™d be so many girl groups, and even while researching them, many more began springing up everywhere.â€
