Crazy, Hate, HUH (Hit Your Heart), and What’s Your Name are some of 4Minute’s other well-known songs. The group started with ideas that women liked, which helped them get a lot of female fans.

Even though the K-pop group was very successful, they broke up in 2016 after talks with Cube Entertainment fell through. Kim Hyuna, who goes by the stage name HyunA, is one of the group’s members who has become known as a solo artist and is now signed to P NATION. Some of the members have also moved on to acting and singing solo.

(G)I-DLE

The K-pop group debuted in 2018 under Cube Entertainment. Miyeon, Minnie, Soyeon, Yuqi, and Shuhua are in the group now. (G)I-first DLE’s album, Latta, set the stage for the group. The group was called “monster rookies” for their work.

During their time on Queendom, (G)I-DLE got a lot of attention, especially for their last performance of Lion. The show was stolen by Soyeon’s powerful rap and dance solo. Even though they didn’t win the show, how they performed and put on the display won hearts.

The members of (G)I-DLE are different from most other K-pop girl groups in that they write their songs. Soyeon was also involved in making the album, and members Yuqi and Minnie wrote a few of the songs. This K-pop group from the fourth generation is worth a listen.
