While it is clearly still early to pass judgment on the level of impact Everglow would have on the Asian music scene, or the longevity they would enjoy together as a group in an industry that has a reputation of disbanding and producing a huge amount of talent every year, all the signs seem to point towards them being here to stay. This is due to the fact that the South Korean girl group has already created a buzz as well as released a few international chart-topping hits. Read on to find out all we know about Everglow and its members.
