The 4th Generation of K-Pop Music started in 2022 and will end on 2031. Already an exciting generation as it was opened by supergroup Girls On Top through its subgroup GOT the beat which was quickly followed by newcomer girl group Kep1er, a generation which will definitely become a Girls’ Generation and everyday a Girl’s Day.

In February, VIVIZ and NMIXX strenghtened the girl power theme with their powerful debut songs.
