Although many idol groups may appear friendly with each other and getting along with other groups, that isn’t always the case. Netizens compiled a list of girl idol groups that have been known to have conflicts either within their groups, or with other girl groups.

2. Hwang Jung Eum and Ayumi (Sugar)
The two girls have openly targeted each other while on a talk show.
3. Secret’s Sunhwa and Hana

4. Ryu Hwa Young (former T-ARA member) and T-ARA
There were many rumors that T-ARA bullied Hwa Young, resulting in her terminating her contract and departing from the group in 2012.
5. Kahi and After School
After Kahi mentioned that she felt some girl group members “need to get hit and are annoying,” many people assumed she was talking about After School. People also suspect that Kahi has hinted she’s not close at all to After School’s sub-unit, Orange Caramel.
6. Bestie and EXID
Bestie’s Yooji, Hae Ryung, Dami, and EXID’s Hani, Jung Hwa, and LE originally debuted together as a 6-member group, EXID. However, following a series of controversies and conditions, the group eventually split up, half going to debut with Bestie and half with EXID.
