“RUSH HOUR” is JTBC’s survival program that made fans’ hearts swell with appreciation of the show’s concept. The show targets already debuted male idol groups or soloists (whether they are seeking a career boost, have been on hiatus, debuted recently, etc.) to battle with epic performances for a big cash prize, new album release and global showcase. The show mainly consists of underrated groups despite their immense talent. Thanks to the show, many groups are gaining attention. It made us wonder what underrated girl groups we’d want to see on the show if there was an all-female season.
So, we’ve compiled a list of some girl groups we’d like to see on an all-female season of “PEAK TIME”.
Be sure to let us know who your candidates are in the comments at the end of the article.
Observation: No female season of “PEAK TIME” has been announced. This article is purely an imaginary dream released for a hypothetical women’s season. In addition, the the poll at the end of the article is just to collect the opinion of the fans. The results do not guarantee anything. They have no impact on the official production of a show.
PIXY is best known for having a super cohesive discography without a single skip. PIXY is a 5-member girl group under ALLART Entertainment and Happy Tribe Entertainment that debuted in 2021. Despite their short career so far, the group has shown a lot of potential with their exceptional skills and amazing music.
If this group were to enter an all-female season of “PEAK TIME”, there’s no doubt many would be in awe of their talent, wondering why they didn’t discover them sooner.
CRAXY is a 5-member girl group under SAI Entertainment that debuted in 2020. CRAXY is another girl group that deserves more attention ASAP. The group even took it upon themselves to challenge the term ‘nugu’ (a term used for less popular groups in K-Pop, considered a negative term by some) through their latest music release. They released a title track called ‘Nugudom’ which discourages people from looking down on these types of groups. You can read more about it here.
It just goes to show that they are unique and deserve more public appreciation. A show like “PEAK TIME” would be a great platform to showcase your talent.
cignature is a 7-member girl group under J9 Entertainment that debuted in 2020. The group is known for their impressive vocals and steady performances despite having demanding high-energy choreography. They are like a group of vitamins that automatically lift the mood in the room when they perform. Many fans feel that the group has yet to gain the attention that befits their talent.
So a show like “PEAK TIME” would be an amazing place to give them that extra boost to get more people to fall in love with their talent and charming personalities.
mimiirose is a 5-member girl group under YES IM Entertainment and Totalset Entertainment. They debuted in September 2022 and have since won the hearts of their fans with their charisma and impressive vocals. If you want to read more about why mimiirose has the potential to be a future K-Pop powerhouse, check out this article.
“PEAK TIME” would be the perfect show to give these girls a boost in their careers and show people their overflowing charm.
Another one of the girl groups that we would like to see on “PEAK TIME” is none other than PRISTIN. PRISTIN was a 10-member girl group under Pledis Entertainment. At the end of their career, they took a two-year hiatus from group activities and ended up disbanding in 2019. When the group debuted, many fans expected them to make it big because of their talent and success of their music. . However, this was not the case.
All PRISTIN members have pursued different careers. However, it would be a dream to see them reunite and perform again on stage at a show like “PEAK TIME”.
IRRIS is a 4-member girl group under Justice Records and Mellow Entertainment. They renamed and debuted as IRRIS in 2022 after being active as a group called RED SQUARE. His initial group came to an end due to a long hiatus and financial problems from his previous company. However, despite their obstacles, the group showed perseverance and passion for K-Pop by trying again. They are also one of the standout groups among rookie idols; each member is exceptionally talented.
By entering “PEAK TIME” (if there ever was a women’s season), the girls could easily secure the recognition they so richly deserve.
bugAboo is another group that unfortunately disbanded. bugAboo was a 6-member group under Ateam Entertainment that debuted in 2021. They disbanded in 2022 with just one year into their career. Their disbandment took many by surprise because it happened so soon, despite the overwhelming talent of the members. Fans often talk about the group having untapped potential.
We thought it would be great if people could explore their potential through a program like “PEAK TIME”.
Another girl group we’d like to see on “PEAK TIME” is BVNDIT. BVNDIT was a 5-member girl group under MNH Entertainment that debuted in 2019. They are best known for their distinctive vocals and boundless talent. Sadly, BVNDIT disbanded in October 2022, much to the dismay of their fans. Many fans have expressed how they feel the group never got the recognition they deserved.
So what better way to gain that recognition than to participate in a survival program designed to showcase your skills?
NATURE is a 9-member girl group under n.CH Entertainment that debuted in 2018. They are best known for their unique concepts and intriguingly unique songs. Many believe that girls are super talented and perform well. However, it is a mystery to many how they are not more popular.
What better way to give the group a boost than to have them appear on a show like “PEAK TIME”?
FANATICS is a 7-member girl group under FENT that debuted in 2019. They originally debuted as 6 members and had a few line-up changes along the way. In October 2022, the group deactivated their social media and in November 2022, members Chiayi and DoI revealed that the group had not yet disbanded, giving fans hope for a possible comeback after individual activities ended.
Many fans expressed that it’s a shame that FANATICS didn’t get a proper opportunity to take off due to various issues. “PEAK TIME” would be the perfect show to give them a fresh start and a chance.
Natty is one of those idols that seems like they were born to be on stage. Many fans describe her as a hidden gem. She has been on her fair share of survival shows including “SIXTEEN” and “Idol School”, however, she has failed to debut. She has continued with her solo career and it was recently announced that she will be debuting in a new girl group under S2 Entertainment.
If given the opportunity on a show like “PEAK TIME” where existing talent shines again, there is no doubt that she will do well and gain even more recognition. She could go on the show as a soloist, as a member of her new girl group, or alongside her members as a rookie group.
MinSeo is a K-Pop soloist with one of the most beautiful voices in the world. She has released several releases and has even branched out into other fields like acting, but many K-Pop fans still yearn to hear more of her beautiful voice on stage.
If MinSeo did a female season of “PEAK TIME”, there’s no doubt that she would finally get the vocal recognition she deserves.
13. Evening Primrose Ruby
Primrose debuted as a 2-member duo in January 2023. However, member Yeum left the duo due to personal reasons. Thus, Ruby would stay on Primrose until another member joined. Anyone who kept an eye on the duo when they debuted would tell you how much potential they had to be the next big thing, as they had incredible stage presence and filled the stage despite their small number of members.
It would be great to see Ruby on “PEAK TIME” as a soloist so she can showcase more of her talents for people to see.
14. Park JiWoo (Lovelyz’s Jin)
Park JiWoo’s vocal color can be summed up as a voice that makes you feel something. Many fans feel that she has not received as much appreciation as she should have. So an opportunity like “PEAK TIME” would be perfect.
She could appear on the show as a surprise big name, just like Moon JongUp did. Of course, it would be even better if all the Lovelyz could show up too.
