13 Short-Lived K-Pop Groups That Deserved To Last So Much Longer

13 Short-Lived K-Pop Groups That Deserved To Last So Much Longer

They deserved so much better 🥺

Sometimes K-Pop groups end up disbanding far before one would expect them to, and it’s always devastating for fans of the artist, especially when it’s sudden and without explanation. This has happened far too many times in the K-Pop industry, for both known and unknown reasons, and even groups that disbanded years ago are still mourned by many people who wonder what their careers could have been like had things been different.

Recently on Reddit, a post was made for K-Pop fans to share which artists they think didn’t last as long as they should have, and there were many different answers. Some lasted quite a bit longer than others, but all of the groups below definitely should have had longer careers than they ended up having! These are 13 of the most popular answers from the post.

Pristin debuted on March 21, 2017 and disbanded on May 24, 2019.
