god (지오디, ji-oh-dee) is a 5 member Korean pop music group. The name is an acronym for Groove Over Dose. They were one of the few groups to have an album become a "million seller" in K-pop.[1][2] The members had gone on to solo careers after disbanding. However, they regrouped and made a come back in 2014.[3]

Career[edit]

As they are the most recent million album selling group in South Korea, they are often referred to as 'the Nation's idol', and considered 'Legends of K-Pop'[4] with other first generation idols H.O.T. and SES, etc.

The group debuted with the single "어머님께" ("To Mother"). The music video featured actor Jang Hyuk. After winning the Daesang from the three major broadcasting systems in Korea for their multi-million selling 4th album, they began a "100-day Human Concert" where all the shows were sold out and each day had a different theme.

The five members also appeared in a Korean TV series, called "Baby Diary", in which they acted as a family to take care of a little baby named Han Jae Min. Every one of them had a duty (i.e. Son Ho Young acted as 'mommy' and Park Joon Hyung as 'daddy'). The TV series was huge success and widely popular.

god recently announced that they will be reuniting in mid-March 2014 with a song produced by Duble Sidekick.[5]

On May 3, god surprised their fans by announcing their 15th anniversary concert through a TV advertisement which aired on Korean cable channel JTBC on May 3 followed by confirmation from SidusHQ.[3] Yoon Kye Sang confirmed he would join the other god members for the 15th anniversary album.[6]

So, god reunited for their 15th anniversary project which consists of a pre-release song on May 8 ahead of their upcoming full-length album and concert at Jamsil Sports Complex on July 12–13. Their pre-release song is ' The Lone Duckling' (also 'The Ugly Duckling') and is a ballad song created by Double Sidekick. All proceeds from the song will be donated to those suffering from the tragic Sewol ferry accident.

On July 1, they released a song 'Sky Blue Promise' for fans who waited for more than 10 years, hoping for god's comeback. (Sky blue is their fan club color, also this song is another fan song of god after their famous fan songs 'Sky Blue Balloon' and 'Into the Sky') This song got top of the 8 music charts.

On July 8, finally god made their successful comeback as 5 members with the released of their 8th album <Chapter 8> and presented the music video of new album’s title song 'Saturday Night' through YouTube.[7] There are 4 title songs and 14 songs in total.

The group successfully wrapped their first concert in 12 years, 'god 15th Anniversary Reunion Concert’ on July 12, 2014 at Jamsil Sports Complex with around 14-thousand fans. They continued their national tour to 5 cities, including Gwangju, Busan, Daegu, Daejoon, and Seoul with total 10 concerts.[8]
