Gstory (걸스토리), also stylized as G.story, was a four-member kids girl group under Antzstar Company. They debuted on December 28, 2010 with the digital single "Pinky Pinky". They disbanded in either late 2011 or late 2012.

History[]

2010–2011[]

Gstory was formed as a kids girl group sometime in 2010 by Antzstar Company with members Chaeyoung, Yuri, Hyein and maknae Yoonjung. They made an official debut on December 28, 2010 with the release of their first and only digital single, "Pinky Pinky".

However, their debut was largely unsuccessful as even prior to their debut, there were anti-fan cafes created and numerous news articles were published which criticized the group for having children too young to be idols. At the time, the members were all in elementary school and their average age was around 10 years old and many were concerned about the children becoming harmed working in an adult industry.[1][2][3][4] These concerns elevated to the point that Antzstar Company's CEO, Jung Hyunok, disclosed to the media that Gstory was not debuted to create a financially profitable girl group for the company, but merely because the members themselves dreamt of becoming idols and thus the agency wished to make the children's dreams come true.[5] Additionally, Gstory had difficulties in appearing in broadcasts and television shows, as in 2010 issues were raised to the Korean National Assembly to restrict children under 10 from being on broadcasts; this was further further expanded upon in 2014.[6][7][citation needed]

Eventually, Gstory became inactive by later 2011, and thus is presumed to have disbanded that same year or in early 2012. Their agency, Antzstar Company, had also become bankrupt around this time.
