K-pop, or Korean popular music, has become a genre of its own, dominating the music and entertainment industries worldwide. K-pop has grown and evolved over the years, and talented idols and groups are undeniably its core. In this generation, you can ask people from different parts of the world and there is a good chance that they are K-pop fans or are at least aware of what K-Pop is all about.

A lot of K-pop bands have made a name for themselves and left their mark with phenomenal songs, electrifying performances, and amazing visuals. But if you're looking for a new group to stan, here are five girl groups that debuted this year and are already serving the fans; giving us reason to keep an eye on them in the coming years!
