EXID debuted under AB Entertainment in 2012. At that time, the group had a failed start, which eventually led to the company’s financial crisis.

Debut GFRIEND in 2015 was a failure, and the band became known to more K-pop fans only after the funk Yuju from a performance with “Me Gustas Tu” gained viral popularity. It was not her appearance or skills that became popular, but her determination and professionalism. In viral funcam Yuju fell on stage about eight times during the entire performance, but she got up and continued to dance. Fortunately, Yuju finished the performance without serious injuries and left the stage with a smile.

Their song “Rollin ‘”, released in 2017, topped several charts and became one of the most popular songs in 2021. During the indefinite break, which almost led to the disbandment of the group, Brave Girls returned as part of the quartet and are now enjoying great success in Korea and abroad.
In February 2022, another women’s group became famous for its funk. Funky Tsuki from Billlie since performing with “GingaMingaYo” has become popular on Twitter and YouTube.
