WBW: 10 Groups That Are Never Getting Back Together

Like everything in life, nothing lasts forever and even our favorite K-pop groups will come to an end at some point (althoughShinhwamay prove otherwise). As fans, we always root for these groups to get back together one last time but this past week's episode of 'Beatles Code 2' reminded me that in some cases, that's just not going to happen. FormerS#arpmembersLee Ji HyeandJang Suk Hyunwere guests and while they never specifically mentioned it, everyone knows that the group ended on bad terms and the chances of a reunification are slim to none.

While not every group's end is as dramatic as S#arp's, today'sWay Back Wednesdaywill look at some former groups who probably have sang their final swan song together. They may appear on TV shows or still be friends but as a singing group, to steal a line fromTaylor Swift, they arenever, ever, ever getting back together.

Seo Taiji and Boys

Fans have been beginning, clamoring, and praying that the single most important group in K-pop take the stage one last time but I think that ship has sailed.Yang Hyun Sukhas stated that the members would prefer that fans cherish the memories of them but that a reunion wasn't in the cards.


Between membersKang Sung Hoon'sprison sentence for fraud,Ko Ji-Yong'scomplete disappearance from the entertainment world, andLee Jae Jin'spast mental health issues, Sechskies' brief three year run looks to be one of the fastest rises and quickest ends to a K-pop group ever.


MembersBada,Eugene, andShooare still close friends and have appeared together on TV shows such as 'Immortal ClassicsSeason 1'and 'Come to Play' but as each member has moved on in life, I don't think we'll ever see them truly perform as a group again. That's OK though because no one will take the place of my first K-pop crush, Eugene.


Technically the group hasn't officially disbanded but I don't think we'll ever see membersTeddy Park,Song Baek Kyung,Oh Jin Hwan, andDanny Imsharing a stage again. It's been eight years without a peep from the members or fromYG Entertainmentabout their future and it seems like fans will be left to wonder what the heck happened.


The aforementioned group had the most abrupt end to an idol group that I've ever seen. The beginning of the end happened after a fight betweenLee Ji HyeandSeo Ji Youngbefore an appearance on a 2002 music show. S#arp's management made the decision to end the group literally a week after the incident putting an end to one of the most bizarre moments in K-pop.


If someone had asked me last year following the group's first appearance together in eight years on 'Yoon Kye Sang's One Table' show if they would get back together and perform again, I would have said without question yes. Now, I'm not so sure. GivenSon Ho Young'srecent tragedy and the fact that nine months have passed since they did appear together on TV, it doesn't look very promising.

Fly to the Sky

Even withHwanhee'simpending discharge from the military, Fly to the Sky is probably perpetually grounded. With each member going in different directions in their career, the duo's R&B days look to be done.

The Original TVXQ

I guess this one's a given considering the incredible drama and controversy surrounding membersJunsu,Yoochun, andJaejoongleaving the group. There still has to be some animosity there and it's a shame since they were really a pioneering group when it came to taking K-pop to the international level.

CSJH the Grace

I wrote in aWBW article last monththat CSJH the Grace was a group that, despite their talent, never quite made it. There have been constant rumors about potential comebacks and recording new music but for whatever reason, all four members have not been able to get on the same page.

Wonder Girls

I hate to break it to everyone but the Wonder Girls, as we knew and loved, will most likely never be back. I understand that the door is always open forSunto return after starting a family but her idol days are over. I'm not a woman and certainly not a mom, but I can't imagine coming back and doing what she was doing before but now with a child and husband. Who knows, maybe in 10-15 years we'll see aSpice Girls,Olympic-like reunion but that's a long way off...

Some of the these groups have completely shut the door on a comeback while others may have a little light peaking through. Either way, the point is to remember the fun times when they were performing... and maybe hold onto a little hope that we'll see them together again.
