Glam (Hangul글램) was a South Korean girl group that debuted in 2012 under the management of Big Hit Entertainment and Source Music.[1] The group consisted of five members: Zinni, Trinity, Jiyeon, Dahee, and Miso.[2] Glam disbanded in 2015 after a court found Dahee guilty of blackmailing actor Lee Byung-hun.[3]

History[edit]

2010–2011: Pre-debut[edit]

Before officially debuting, Glam was featured on 2AM's song "Just Me," from the boy band's 2010 album, Saint o'Clock. Glam and BTS were also featured artists on Lee Hyun's song "Bad Girl," from the singer's 2011 album, You Are Best of My Life.[citation needed]

In 2012, Glam starred in the reality show, Real Music Drama: GLAM, which aired on SBS MTV from June 6 until the group's official debut.[2]

2012–2013: Debut, singles, and departure of Trinity[edit]

On July 16, 2012, Glam officially debuted with the release of their first single, "Party (XXO)." Later that year, they released the song, "The Person I Miss," for the soundtrack of the Korean drama, Five Fingers.[4]

On December 31, Big Hit Entertainment announced that Trinity was leaving the group due to personal reasons, and that Glam would continue as a four-member group.[5]

On January 2, 2013, Glam released their second single, "I Like That,"[5] which sampled the song "Why Do You" by Chuli and Miae.[6] On March 15, Glam made their second comeback of the year with the single, "In Front of the Mirror," which combined genres including Europop, trot, and hip hop.[7]

2014–2015: Dahee blackmail scandal and disbandment[edit]

On September 2, 2014, the actor Lee Byung-hun accused two women of blackmailing him by using a compromising video as leverage.[8] Dahee and model Lee Ji-yeon were later identified as the women and were charged with blackmailing the actor for 5 billion won. On January 15, 2015, the Seoul District Court sentenced Dahee to one year in prison.[9] The same day, Glam's agency confirmed that the members of the group had ended their contracts with the agency, and the group had officially disbanded.[3]

On March 26, the Seoul District Court gave Dahee a two-year suspended sentence instead of jail time.[10]
