- 19 Mar
With how many K-pop groups debut each year, it's nearly impossible to find a date that hasn't seen a debut in a previous year.
Here are some K-pop groups from different years, and even generations, who debuted on the same day and month!
H.O.T and DAY6

These 2 groups from different K-pop generations both debuted on September 7. H.O.T. debuted in 1996 with the songs 'Warrior's Descendant' and 'Candy.' DAY6 later debuted in 2015 with their song 'Congratulations.' 19 years separate these September 7 debuts, and it's amazing to see how much the trends have changed over time!
