[Video] 2013 K-Pop Group Debuts

[Video] 2013 K-Pop Group Debuts

With K-Pop going as strong as ever, the endless wave of new group debuts continues to keep us entertained.

These two videos feature debuts from 36 boy groups and 31 girl groups! (that is 163 boys and 121 girls!) This is a little less than last year, which had 38 new boy groups and 41 girl groups. In trying to cover as much as possible, vocal groups, duos, bands, rappers, and sub units are included.

The groups are featured in order of debut.

Boy Groups

Girl Groups

To allow for more variety, it seems companies have further embraced the idea of sub units. This year we had Infinite-H, ZE:A5, uBEAT, 100% V2YOON, DASONI, T-ara N4, M&N and BOM&HI.

Another interesting thing to note this year is that there wasn’t there wasn’t a debut from the big 3 (not counting sub units). However, they do all have plans for new groups in 2014YG‘s Winner, while on TV has yet to make their official debut. JYP will be releasing their new boy group GOT7 this month, along with another boy group and girl group later. SM has just started showing off their trainees through SM Rookies.

While it would be nearly impossible to copy the level of popularity EXO and B.A.P in their 2012 rookie year, there are definitely a few standouts from last year.

Who do you think were the strongest debuts of 2013?

Random notes:

While NOM made their debut with a cute song, there is actually another group out there named N.O.M which features male erotic dancers. 

Alphabat and QUEEN B’Z are re-debuts. The members of Duo Flo are from former girl group Six Bomb. Three of the members of BESTie are former EXID members.

As far as boy groups, I think LC9, Main, History, M.PIRE, BTS, Joy O'Clock, Timber, Topp Dogg, and AlphaBat became my favorites :) I didn't particularly care for any of the subunits in 2013 though 100% V had to be my favorite out off all of them.

Even with the plagiarism scandal, Purplay's Love and Remember was still my song for most of the year as far as girl groups go.
I did love G.I.'s Beatles though :)

The only kpop girl group that I like is 2NE1.  I find the rest of them annoying.  I just dislike the cutesiness of it all.  The boy groups are very similar; the only one that stood out for me was BTS.  I liked the Pro C song, but the video doesn't show them.  I guess that is okay, because I can focus on the song.  By the way, I don't think sub-units should count, only true debuts.

Ladies' Code, BESTie, & Wassup stood out the most to me in the girl groups aside from the subunits. BBPOP's debut song wasn't that good, but their last song was.

I only recognized 8 groups (5 boy, 3 girl) & 6 subgroups (4 boy, 2 girl)..

A couple other songs sounded familiar, but I didn't recognize the names.. 

I did like quite a few of them I haven't heard before though. 


I would say TOPPDOGG & BTS were among the strongest debuting this year, 

since I've heard the most about them from various places.. Along with the subgroups, of course.
