Why Wasn’t SISTAR Onstage to Congratulate 4minute for Its Win?

Like the rumors say, are the top girl groups out to get each other?

Rumors started springing up over why SISTAR didn’t appear onstage when 4minute won its no. 1 trophy on a music show. The absence proved to be puzzling as usually all singers, seniors and juniors alike, go onstage to congratulate the winner of the day.


4minute won its trophy on the May 3 live broadcast of Mnet’s M Countdown after battling out SISTAR and Busker Busker. Many singers, including Shinhwa, the longest-running 14 year old idol group, gathered onstage to congratulate the group for its win.

4Minute’s direct competitor SISTAR, however, was nowhere to be seen onstage, which brought up rumors that SISTAR was on bad terms with 4Minute due to the win.

In the end, it turned out the suspicions were ungrounded when it was revealed that SISTAR wasn’t able to stay until the end of the show because it had to be rushed to Busan for a performance. The group had stayed until just before the announcement of the winner, but then couldn’t stay any longer and had to move. As such, the rumors turned out to be a simple misunderstanding.

4minute is currently promoting its single Volume Up, while SISTAR is acting as the group’s rival with its single Alone, from its first mini album.
