Brave girls

One of the longest-running K-pop groups to break up this year is Brave Girls, who debuted in 2011. The group had a rollercoaster ride and got their big break in 2021 when they started gaining attention for their track Rollin’, which was released in 2017. However, to everyone’s surprise, the group disbanded on February 16, 2023 after their contract with their agency ran out of time. Before Brave Girls officially wrapped up their career, they released a major final track, Goodbye, which was released on the same day as their breakup.

The first K-pop boy group to disband this year is D1CE. Not too long ago, on August 1, 2019, the five-member K-pop group debuted under D1CE Entertainment with their debut track Wake Up: Roll the World. While many were excited and happy about the debut and looking forward to more tracks coming their way, fans were rather shocked by the news of the disbandment on January 20th. This happened after their contract with the agency that managed them expired.


On July 19, Anti-Flag suddenly dropped off the face of the earth. Fans were met with news on the Patreon page that Anti-Flag had split up. The band’s website and social media pages have disappeared. A week later, the band’s singer Justin Sane posted a lengthy message on Instagram confirming that he had been accused of sexually assaulting a woman. He denied this, saying: “I have never engaged in a non-consensual sexual relationship, nor have I ever been approached by a woman after a sexual encounter and told that I acted in any way without her consent or violated her in any way.”
