The saying goes, the bigger you get, the harder you fall. With the departure of resident ice queen Jung Jessica from the K-pop nation’s most iconic girl group for the last seven years, SNSD seems en route to only loose steam and eventually their place under the spotlight as the ‘it’ girl group of Hallyu. In the great vacuum that has been created in a post Sica-pocalypse era, Gaya, Lo, Camiele, Laverne, and I decided to sit down and hash out nominations for the nation’s next girl group. Though the SNSD debacle unfolded about a month ago, our deliberations still stand, and our hearts, though somewhat broken, remain hopeful that our faves will take the opportunity to step up to the plate.

Do you agree with us? Who are your nominations for the nation’s next girl group?
