Add Up10tion in active groups (debuted in 2015) and Hotshot (debuted in 2014)

 

LC9 debuted in 2013, disbanded in 2016. And C-Clown debuted in 2012, disbanded in 2015

 

Edit: and also EvoL, debuted in 2012 and disbanded in 2015

I know there is more groups than that, but it does show you how much K-pop has expanded over the years. +1

That's barely a fraction of how many there actually are. Wikipedia has some elitist editors that won't allow for certain pages for groups being made.

 

And Tritops did have member changes. Along with a few others.

 

SHU-I have disbanded since two years now.

NCT is such a complicated case with all the sub units so i decided to just count the whole NCT as one lol

There are LOADS of groups you haven't mentioned... Most that are nugus though.

 

I know you've missed out Ladies Code, they debuted in 2013 and had a lineup / member change due to an unfortunate accident.

There's also Fiestar, debuted in 2012, also had lineup change from 6 -> 5.

 

http://netizenbuzz.blogspot.sg/2017/02/notable-girl-group-debuts-by-year-from.html

^This lists all the notable girl groups, but if you look at that list, that's only the ones in red. The ones in black are all the nugus that have debuted, and this is only girl groups. I can't think about guy groups @@

at 2012 I remember seeing a "kpop idol groups" list and there were about 125+ group!

sure some of them disbanded but so many new groups added,...so I think ıts more than 80-90...

 

and based on wiki 2010+ list there is 173 idol group at korea..and they are from last 10 year.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_South_Korean_idol_groups_(2010s)

I don't think 2am have officially disbanded.

 

i don't know.. it says they are on "hiatus" (so "disbandment" is the wrong term..but they are also not active)
