LIPBUBBLE made their first debut on March 22, 2017. Unfortunately on May 20, 2019, LIPBUBBLE disbanded.
LIPBUBBLE (립버블) was a South Korean girl group that formed in 2016. It wasn’t until March 9, 2017 when LIPBUBBLE released their first set of promo images for their upcoming debut single, “Popcorn” which was due to release on March 22, 2017. The promotional images consisted of 7 female members (Hanbi, Seoryn, Mirae, Ryua, Ina, Haea and Eunbyeol) acting cheerful while wearing cheerleader outfits.
On March 22, 2017 LIPBUBBLE released their debut single “Popcorn”, however, there was a lot of backlash against the new girl group for plagiarism and a lack of originality regarding their dance routines. The public felt that Zenith Media Contents didn’t invest enough money into the Popcorn video clip which also caused a fair share of backlash.
Shortly after their debut single released, members Mirae, Ryua and Ina left the group for unknown reasons, leaving the total number of members to four. LIPBUBBLE then announced on May 10, 2018 they were adding their newest member to the girl group, Winy. Unfortunately, Haea left the group shortly after Winy’s arrival which meant the girl group remained at four members in total.
Just when fans were beginning to assume the worst for the future of the girl group, Zenith Media Contents announced a comeback to appear on August 27, 2018 with a brand new single “Yellow Pink”. In addition to this single, LIPBUBBLE also announced two new members Ella and Lia as well as Mirae rejoining the group which now bought the total of members back up to seven for their debut release.
On 7 September, 2018 LIPBUBBLE released their comeback single “Yellow Pink” and on November 2018, they won their first award at the 26th Korean Culture Entertainment Awards in the Rookie Award category.
The girl group performed their hit song “Yellow Pink” on Z-Pop Dream Live in Seoul on February 23, 2018, however, members Seoryn, Lia, and Ella were noticeably absent during their performance. Rumours began speculating that LIPBUBBLE were beginning to have problems and it wasn’t until March 2018 when Lia, Ella and Seoryn were silently confirmed to have left the group.
Sadly, on May 20, 2018 Zenith Media Contents announced through their fancafe at the time that LIPBUBBLE would be disbanded.
