Is a four-syllable name needed for success as a girl group?

Although there are many successful girl groups in the K-pop industry, there are also many groups that never find success. However, netizens recently discovered an eerie similarity among the top girl groups. According to netizens, it appears that for a girl group to find success in the music industry, they need to have name spelled with four syllables (four hangul characters). A Pann post about the phenomenon has received a lot of attention, with many netizens agreeing with the idea.
