F-ve Dolls (Korean: 파이브돌스; sometimes stylized as F-VE DOLLS, formerly known as 5dolls) is a South Korean female pop group. They debuted with two single tracks "Lip Stains" (입술자국) and "I Mean You" (너 말이야).[1][2]

The group disbanded in November, 2014.

History[edit]

In December 2010 Co-Ed School broke into sub-groups. The female members (with the addition of a new member, Seo Eun Kyo), became F-ve Dolls.

On January 20, 2011 F-ve Dolls released two promotional videos featuring Jay Park, one called "Lip Stains" and the other one called "It's You". F-ve Dolls released their first mini album on February 16, 2011 and debuted on M! Countdown on February 17, 2011.[3]

During their live performances, the group received criticism for presumably lip synching their live performances.[4] F-ve Dolls released their second mini-album Time To Play on May 11, 2011 with their lead single "Like This Or That" (이러쿵 저러쿵); releasing the music video on the same day. "Like This Like That" stands as the highest selling song for a rookie of 2011 with $192,000 USD grossed.[citation needed]

In February Soomi, left the group to focus on her solo career, and introduced her replacement, Nayeon, on the same day.[5] Chanmi left the group in Summer 2012 and a trainee Shannon was announced to be replacing her. In February 2013, trainee Choi Jihyun was also announced to be joining the group. Thus, the second line-up of the group had six members.[6]

On July 8, 2013, the group officially announced that they would be returning at the end of the month with a new single called "Soulmate #1" as well as a new stage name, "F-ve Dolls". Two concept photo teasers were also released, showing a third version of the group's line-up and confirming the addition of another two new members; Seunghee and The SeeYa member Yeonkyung who will simultaneously promote between two groups, thus confirming Shannon and Jihyun's departure from the group; while Nayeon would be the only trainee from the second line-up who will remain.[7]

On July 31, 2013, their first digital single "Since 1971" was released with the music video of "Soulmate #1", the title track of the digital single. The song charted 62 on the Gaon Chart & 44 on the Billboard Korea Hot 100. F-ve Dolls promoted "Soulmate #1" from July 31 through September 1, 2013.

F-ve Dolls followed-up promotions with a new mini-album called "First Love". The song was performed on September 12, 2013, while the mini-album was released on 17 September 2013. The title song of their new mini-album is called "사랑한다 안한다". the English title is "Can You Love Me?". The song features new T-ara N4 member Kim Dani making it her debut. On 17 September 2013, a 2nd version of the "Can You Love Me?" music video was released and so also a music video for the song "Deceive" which was in their new mini-album was released as well.
