Today's hidden gem is Chemical by G9!
This was a debut that TOTALLY flew under everyone's radar and it's too bad because I think it's a really good song! The video is bright and popping, the girls are pretty and have lots of charisma, and the song is super catchy.
So G9 lost like 2 members almost instantly. Then one of their more popular members, Kady left about a year after their debut. They made a comeback with a name change Geegu (not really a change for the Korean audience, but for i-fans) and then they silently disbanded. One of the members is a former member of Ye-A, the same group that Eunbi of Iz*one debut in.
I think this should have blown up in a big way and put Romeo on the map. It's unbelievably catchy, the vocals are good, the chore is cool, it has FREAKING CHOI MINHO FROM SHINEE, I'm actually surprised it didn't at least give them SOME more attention and raise them in popularity at least a little.

El redebuted in the group 2EYES, but shortly left after their first comeback, Shooting Star. She also competed on Mix 9 but got eliminated pretty early. Not too many updates.

After Blood Type B Girl they went through a massive revamp with only one member remaining (Tina). Then after two comebacks with the new lineup the group disbanded.
Blady actually does have some updates unlike most of the groups I've promoted in this series. Tina is now a…
4ten is super nugu and even among the like 12 of us who exist not many talk about Why and it's not only my favorite 4ten song, but one of my favorite songs of all time. There's just something about the melody and the vocals that make me happy and nostalgic.
4ten was supposed to make a comeback as a trio a few years ago, but plans fell apart and the group ultimately disbanded. They had a couple lineup changes since this video…
