So many girl group songs go unnoticed by K-pop fans and the general Korean public because it is not promoted enough or lacks the right marketing strategy.
It is such a repetitive phenomenon where songs from girl groups managed by big agencies get recognition even though it is not as good as songs by girl groups from smaller agencies.
This is why we listed amazing girl group songs that could have topped the charts if it was released by girl groups from the ‘Big 4’.
Weki Meki “Crush”
Weki Meki’s highest viewed song on their official YouTube channel, “Crush” definitely deserves more recognition because of its addictive tune and happy beats.

Weki Meki “I Am Me”
The song would just make you want to dance and sing with the girls. However, Fantagio Entertainment probably don’t know how to promote their girl group properly because the song did not top charts.
If it was released by YG Entertainment’s girl group, BLACKPINK, it would have probably entered many local and international charts, like most of their songs. It can also go viral on TikTok with its cute choreography that is easy to follow.

The dark theme and concept of the song perfectly matches with it slow beat and the mysterious voices of the members of Nature.
However, the song did not see any light of the day as it was unknown by many K-pop fans. I bet that it would definitely go viral if one of HYBE label girl groups – LE SSERAFIM, releases this same song
