Everyone move aside, the Girls on Top are here

These girls got the beat, and no one can deny it.

On December 27, 2021 at 12 M.N. KST, SM Entertainment announced the formation of a brand-new “super group” or their female idol group version of “SuperM”, “Girls on Top”.

SuperM debuted back in 2019, consisting of members from SM Entertainment’s boy groups SHINee, EXO, and NCT. The “super group” included SHINee’s Taemin, EXO’s Baekhyun and KAI, and NCT’s Taeyong, Mark, Ten, and Lucas.

Rumors of a female version of SuperM have been circulating on social media for a while now, with many K-Pop stans having their own picks for SM Entertainment’s “SuperW”. But finally, SM Entertainment revealed their line-up for this top female idol group.

Girls on Top, or GOT, consists of BoA, Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon and Hyoyeon, Red Velvet’s Seulgi and Wendy, and aespa’s Karina and Winter. A real powerful line-up, me thinks.

According to the group’s official Twitter, the girl group will be having a special stage performance on January 1, 2022 (possibly at SMTOWN’s free online concert on the same day), and will release their first song on January 3, 2021 at 6 P.M. KST.

Even before the official introduction of the female “Avengers of K-Pop”, fans have been trying to connect the dots from the girls’ interactions on social media. And after the group’s announcement, fans all shared their excitement for new music from SM’s top female idols.



Obviously, girls will run and take over our world. Everyone, say thank you to SM Entertainment for this power move.
