There have been girl groups that just blew up on the k-pop scene the second they entered it. Not to say that those successes will inevitably be a flash in the pan, because that’s not necessarily the case. However, something’s got to be said for the groups that slowly and steadily emerge from the bottom. The Brown Eyed Girls is an example of the latter. Seeing only moderate success with their first few songs after debuting in 2006, the music industry only really sat up and took notice with their hit “Abracadabra” in 2009. Showing off an edgier look with sexy dance moves featuring a feminine swaying of the hips, the BEG proved to be a force to be reckoned with.
One by one, the members of the group started embarking on solo activities. Whether it be being featured on variety programs, hosting their own radio shows, or debuting as a solo artist, BEG started to be recognized as separate entities.
Ga-in in particular became very popular thanks to the show “We Got Married”. She was paired up with 2AM’s leader, Jo-kwon in a pretend marriage. The couple was immediately well-received by the public and were nicknamed the “Ad-am Couple” because “ad-am” in Korean means cute and small. With the show’s help, the couple released a catchy duet called “We Fell In Love”. Fans couldn’t get enough of it, boosting its rankings into the top tier of the music charts.
Ga-in then decided to go fully solo, not long after fellow BEG member Narsha had a successful run with her own solo activities. Not much after releasing her first single “The Undoable”, Ga-in’s song became number one on the Gaon online music charts. She also took home the crown for a live music performance show in Korea, demonstrating her popularity.
“The Undoable” has been praised for fusing unique and different genres of music: electronic and tango. Her sexy stage performances and drama-like music video featuring Lee Seong-jae have only heightened the hype.
