Some K-Pop groups unfortunately weren't able to stick around for too long after officially debuting.

We may have heard success stories of how some of the current popular idol groups today have similarly had rough starts in the beginning but making a breakthrough with their persistence and hard work for several years. But the reality is that even with the dedication and hard work, it doesn't always guarantee success in the music industry.

Below are some K-Pop groups that disbanded very quickly after debuting.

 

X1

Despite the hype surrounding the group which consisted of 'Produce X 101' trainees, the vote rigging scandal was just too big of an obstacle for them to remain as a group.

The Ark

Having debuted in 2015 with their title single 'The Light', there were actually quite a lot of people who heard of them. However, they ended up calling it quits in 2016. The group's agency cited the departure of two members, Yuna and MinJu, as one of the main reasons why the group couldn't go on any further.

1PUNCH

This group consisted of ONE and Samuel. They debuted in January 2015, but as many fans are probably aware, Samuel eventually competed during 'Produce 101' season two while ONE signed with YG Entertainment. There was no way those circumstances would have allowed the group to continue. They disbanded in September 2015.

Lets be clear here..the reason X1 disbanded wasn't because of the vote rigging ,Mnet wanted them to stay but it was the agencies that disbanded them by refusing Mnet`s offer....
It was a damn shame about The ARK breaking up Lee Suji and Kim Sori are kind of faves of mine..
