Allkpop Fx to Set the Kpop World Ablaze!

Allkpop Fx, a 5 member girl group debuted in 2009 under SM Entertainment and quickly rising to popularity in the Kpop world.

Allkpop Fx came from a very diverse background and from different parts of the world including: Korea, China, and America. They have constantly displayed their talents not only in music, but also in variety shows, acting, sports and TV hosts.

After a series of teaser photos, Allkpop Fx made their official debut with their digital single "La Cha Ta" marking their entrance into the kpop industry.

Alongside sister group "Girls Generation" they released two different versions of the same single titled "Chocolate Love" to promote the "new" LG Cyon phone. They then delighted their fans with the quick release of their new song "Chu~<3" which showcases the girls' innocence and cuteness.

Allkpop Fx made their comeback in mid 2010 with their second mini album with their title track "NUABO". The story behind this song related to finding a new blood type, with "Nu" meaning "New" and "A, B and O" referring to the different blood types. "NUABO" was extremely popular amongst allkpop fans topping many online music charts.

Halfway through the promotions however, Amber suffered an ankle injury and was unable to dance, and dropped out to take a long hiatus in USA. The remaining four members continued to promote "NUABO" and their other single from their second album titled "Mr Boogie".

In mid 2011, all 5 members returned to the allkpop scene with their first full length album and their title track "Danger (Pinocchio)". This song had a electric feel to it and received an overwhelming response from allkpop fans winning the girls several "Number 1" spots on various music programs including: Music Bank, M!Countdown and Inkigayo.

Soon after the girls came out with a new song to bring in the summer weather with "Hot Summer" as well as a repackaged album of Danger (Pinocchio), with the additions of three songs "Hot Summer", "Chu~<3" and "La Cha Ta".

She also was a part of Invincible Youth Season 1, where she was introduced as one of the second generation G7 members - following the departure of 4minute's Hyunah and Girls Generation's Sunny and Yuri.

Victoria's popularity also soared when she was selected to appear on MBC reality dating show "We Got Married" being partnered with 2PM's Nichkhun, being dubbed by fans as the "Khuntoria" couple. Prior to her debut with Allkpop Fx, Victoria was originally trained to be a model with SM Entertainment and has appeared in many of her label mates music videos including: ShiNee, Kangta, Super Junior and Trax.

In addition to her acting career, Sulli has also been selected to endorse several brands/products including CK Jeans (with Victoria and Krystal), K-Swiss, LG Cyon Phone etc.

Maknae "Krystal" has gained lots of recognition in the kpop world for her stunning beauty and never ending talent. Before her debut Krystal had garnered a lot of attention due to her relationship with older sister "Jessica Jung" of Girls Generation. At the age of 5 Krystal was already demonstrating immense talent, appearing in labelmate's "Shinwha's" music video as well as various commercials and officially joined SM Entertainment in 2006.

Krystal is one of the more athletic members of Allkpop Fx as demonstrated by her frequent appearances in "Let's Go Dream Team" showing her skills in running, strength games and the high jump, her competitive fire was shown once again in "King of Idols" where she showed her dominance in various games.

She was also one of the competitors on Kim Yuna's skate show "Kiss and Cry" being partnered with "Lee Dong Hun" and coming out on top to win the competition showing off her abilities and talent as an athlete as well as a singer.

In addition to individual activities, Allkpop Fx have had two of their own reality shows titled "Hello F(x)" and "F(x) Koala".

The countries that F(x) had visited included: U.S.A , Japan, Hong Kong and France.
