Who are g.o.d? Veteran group announces concert three years after their 20th-anniversary show
23-year-old veteran K-pop group g.o.d announced a new year-end show for fans in December
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: K-pop groups just like any other collective in the music industry have an expiration date. For some groups, it is the end of their contracts with their labels and for many others, it is when the members of a group decide that it is time for them to part ways from the collective and work on their individual future careers. However, there is a sliver of K-pop groups that fall in the category of timeless collectives that are always around each other due to the brother/sisterhood the members share.
One such group is g.o.d (Groove Over Dose) which made its debut in 1999 and is still popular in South Korea to this day. The five-member boy group celebrated its 20th debut anniversary in 2019 with a special concert and now, four years since that, g.o.d is coming back with a new year-end show in December of 2022. The boy group had been active from 1999 to 2005 before the members started off their solo careers before regrouping back into g.o.d by July of 2014.
