Then another two members were added, resulting in the formation of ‘Only 13’. Although even to this day, they are not accepted by everyone as members, they remain strong. With the success of their 3rd album in 2009, they were soon Asia’s top idol group. Then, one member went off to pursue acting, and soon after another unexpectedly and suddenly left the agency due to personal issues, leaving them shocked and hurt.

In 2010, they released a new album with only 10 members and shortly after, another member went off to join the army, causing the group to shrink again.

With the release of their 5th album in August 2011, another member joined the army and another temporarily stopped activities to pursue acting leaving them with eight members. Even then they still remained stronger than ever and will begin their 4th tour next week, this time a worldwide tour.
