South Korea’s Top Female Artists Form K-pop Supergroup Girls On Top
A new female K-pop supergroup has been formed called Girls On Top and SM Entertainment’s ensemble features some of the biggest acts in South Korean music.
The seven-member group consists of soloist BoA, Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon and Hyoyeon, Red Velvet’s Wendy and Seulgi, and aespa’s Winter and Karina.
Girls On Top will perform together for the first time on Saturday at SM Entertainment’s New Year’s concert, SMTown Live 2022. The event is free to stream. It will also include performances from Exo, aespa, TVXQ, Super Junior and more.
Their debut single will be released next Monday, although no further details have been revealed yet.
“Girls bring it on,” reads their official Twitter bio, while their only tweet to date suggests the group’s name might be shortened to GOT. “GOT the beat”, he said. “(GOT: girls at the top).”
The band shares a name with BoA’s 2005 single and album of the same name.
This is the second supergroup that SM Entertainment has launched in recent years following the 2019 unveiling of SuperM.
The boy band, who released the album great one last year, has seven members: Taemin from Shinee, Baekhyun and Kai from Exo and Taeyong, Mark, Ten and Lucas from NCT and its associated subgroups (NCT 127, NCT Dream and WayV).
They also shot their music video for the single To jump to Dubai. The word is a portmanteau of “jump” and “jump,” which the seven-member band claims is “how they get down.”
The video shows members of the band riding motorbikes around Happiness Street in Business Bay and on Al Khail Road, driving down the Meydan Bridge and performing on a stretch of highway in the desert. One of the members is also seen singing and dancing to their verse in a vast desert expanse with the Dubai skyline in the background.
