An end of a K-pop era is here and I’m not sure if the timing was this perfect by chance or by design. SM Entertainment announced that three members of the current eight member girl idol group Girl’s Generation will not be renewing their contracts with the agency. Sooyoung, Seohyun, and Tiffany have elected to move on to different agencies, with Tiffany planning to go to the US for further studies and Sooyoung and Seohyun transitioning their careers into acting. GG debuted in 2007 and this being 2017 with the group is now effectively disbanded, making it exactly one generation worth of one of the most well known and popular girl groups ever shot out from the Hallyu manufacturing cannon to entertain the world. I’ll fondly the best of GG and am quite impressed the group kept chugging along after the first departure of Jessica in 2014. Good luck to the departing and remaining with SM members, life keeps going but they and we will always have memories of this wildly successful K-pop group.
