[Telzone] Ambitious debuts that met an early demise


1. D. BACE

Produced by Lee Hyun Do, what's more surprising about this duo is that they are still active and promoting. At the time of their debut, they were one of the most anticipated rookies alongside X-Large and were expected to be the ones to continue the boy group legacy of g.o.d. Unfortunately, their career is often compared to Big Bang's pre-"Lies" release era, except without the "Lies" release. They never had a hit track and eventually disappeared as failures.


2. 2Shai

At the time, DSP was big enough to be considered SM's rival despite current circumstances. When SM came out with male duo Fly to the Sky, DSP later debuted 2Shai. Their debut track "Love Letter" earned fame much after its release but they managed to gain recognition for their vocal talent. Unfortunately, their follow-up promotions didn't do as well as expected, putting an end to their career. An unfortunate case of a talented group unable to earn popularity for it.


3. Blackbeat

A rather daring attempt by SM, as Blackbeat was completely a performance-oriented group. They came out with double title tracks - a rare instance back in the day - but ultimately failed to avoid criticisms for being a dance group without any vocalists. Compared to other SM groups, their fandom was also weak in comparison and they've thus been remembered as one of the failures of SM. Member Shim Jaewon is currently a choreographer for SM.


4. Milk, Shinvi

Girl group produced by Moon Hee Jun. Milk, Shinvi, Morning, Blackbeat, and CSJH are considered the 'top 5 disasters' of SM. The reason Milk, Shinvi, and Morning failed was because... they had no option but to fail. They are probably a dark history SM would want to erase. Member Park Hee Bon is currently an actress.


5. Jung Chul

Hyped as the son of Nami, he received a lot of attention during his debut thanks to the name recognition of his mother. He received a lot of support, even singing an OST for the popular drama 'Sangdoo, Let's Go to School', but ultimately failed in reaching success due to a lack of talent. He hasn't been promoting since his last album release two years ago.


6. i13

An ambitious project group produced by Sobangcha's Jung Won Kwan. Comprised of 13 teens, the group failed to gain any attention and was met with fast failure.

"Some of the reasons for failures are too subjective. Blackbeat had a vocalist. Jung Jin Young is currently a vocal trainer in SM. Jung Chul was a great singer as well, just that his vocal color wasn't what the public was used to."

"How could the legendary Ori be missing from this list... The shocking debut stage and then her subsequent disappearance..."

"I think Blackbeat's Jung Jihoon is also a vocalist in WE."

"i13 disbanded because their food expenses alone for the group and their staff exceeded $10,000 a month ㅋㅋㅋ"

"I remember wondering why Blackbeat never got popular. They had decent songs, just that they were all a bit dark in theme."

"I don't know about the reasons for their failure but 2Shai, Blackbeat, and Jung Chul all have awesome songs... I still listen to 2Shai even today."

    Omfg I remember her. Always sad to see people with no self-awareness make fools out of themselves. I hope she learned from that experience.

  3. Oh dear god, how could anyone ever forget Ori? LOL.

  4. I always laugh whenever some dumb stan says that SM has never had flops. They have more flop acts than successes.


    i-13 had such a good debut song tho it's still my jam. and they were qt

  5. IKR I remember livestreaming shows when she debut and reading that her daddy basically opened an ent co just so she could debut. so sad, but to me one of the worst EVERYTHING debuts. songs, styling just everything was terrible.

  6. happy to see I wasn't the only one forever traumatized by the horror that was ori

  7. It's because they don't know any older groups than SNSD/SuJu.

  8. I liked M.I.L.L and cjsh ..:(

  9. I'll never forget Ori! I'm still not sure how I feel about her though... she's so bad that I actually feel sorry for her idk.

    At least another Blackbeat members works for SM too now. Hwang Sanghoon / Gregory Hwang is also a choreographer / dance teacher at SM like Shim Jaewon. And Jang Jin Young is one of SM's vocal trainers... so that's 3/5 of them working for SM. It's kinda interesting.

  10. Her dad made a company just for her? Wow. I know i'm a little but spoiled but that's just some delusional shit.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well, I thought Jang Jin Young of Blackbeat was a good vocalist.



    I'm surprised May Doni isn't on this list. There was quite a buzz on her debut.....then she disappeared, and it wasn't until recently when I heard that she's supposedly making a comeback soon.

  12. OMG ORI!!!! LMAO I REMEMBER THIS DISASTER!!!

  14. ori is one of the horrors in my life that i try hard to forget but cant

    ReplyDelete
  15. She just released her new song.

    ReplyDelete
  16. See that's why media play (in small amounts only!) is really useful sometimes. A group can be very talented but if nobody knows they're alive then they just...disappear.

    ReplyDelete
  17. lmfao i wonder where Ori is right now

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh.. I think I have a Blackbeat song somewhere.. Or a video in a list.. idk.. I liked it. :'3

    ReplyDelete
  19. im actually really curious about Ori. i wonder where she disappeared too.
    and many ppl use to say that she was minah LOL. so im just curious overall about this Ori girl existence haha.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe 2Shai failed because they were 2Shai.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lmao that ori girl is x_x

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh one of Blackbeat's member is now in a group called "WE" but the group is underrated though. They are in the same agency as DJ DOC's lead singer who's name I forgot. Hope they have a new track soon.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh forgot to mention his name is Kanghan now (the lead singer in WE (co-ed group (the dude with black long hair on blackbeat's pic). Seems like black beat really failed though, they had amazing dancers.
    I13 had some potential... 3 of their members eventually debuted but are still unknown sadly...

    ReplyDelete
  24. how about Swit.T from YG? lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's a shame that Blackbeat failed. They were seriously the best group of dancers SM ever debuted, and their lead singer was pretty awesome, too. Then again, they debuted when soloists were the norm, and BoA and Fly to the Sky were the only artists keeping SM from totally failing. Idol groups only became popular again when DBSK debuted.

    It's interesting that Shim Jaewon puts a lot of his old group's choreography into the choreographies he helps with now. SHINee's "Lucifer" had many of the old steps that were in Blackbeat's "Wing."

    And OMG Ori. I'm surprised and glad I didn't hear about her back then. LOL

  27. Ambitious debut? YG wasn't big in 2002...

    ReplyDelete
  28. How about BATTLE??? Such an awesome group with shit loads of potential. Even till this day, I still jam to their debut song 'Crash'.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I just watched the Ori video and I was like, WTF? How can she even become a singer in the first place? No talent, no looks, nothing lol

    ReplyDelete
  30. omg, i literally could not sit through and watch the entirety of the 2:35 clip......i was dying after the first 15 seconds

    ReplyDelete
  31. Milk, Shinvi, Morning, Blackbeat, and CSJH are considered the 'top 5 disasters' of SM.
    ^
    The horror when even an SMT stan has never heard of a group called Morning...... Morning must really have been such a failure to not even get recorded on the SM wiki page...........

    ReplyDelete
  32. CSJH are undeniably the best put together girl idol girl group, nothing but talent and they just so happened to be nice looking as well.

  39. Well sm loves to recycle

  40. It was YG's fault they failed too. He had such a big crush on one of the girls he pretty much avoided promoting them. Then he marries her.
