G.O.D (지오디) is a Korean pop music group. The name is an acronym for Groove Over Dose. The group was one of the few groups to have an album become a "million seller" in K-pop. The members had gone to solo careers after disbanding. However, they have come back in 2014.
As they are the last million seller group of South Korea, usually they are called 'the Nation's idol', and considered as 'the Legend of Kpop idol' with other first generations idols H.O.T. and SES, etc.
The group debuted with the single "어머님께" ("To Mother"). The music video featured actor Jang Hyuk. After winning the Daesang for the three major broadcasting systems in Korea for their multi-million selling 4th album, they began a "100-day Human Concert" where all the shows were sold out and each day had a different theme.
The five boys also appeared in a Korean TV series, called "Baby Diary", in which they acted as a family to take care of a little baby named Han Jae Min. Every one of them had a duty (ex. Son Ho Young acted as 'mommy' and Park Joon Hyung as 'daddy'). The TV series got huge success.
Recently announced that they will be reunited in mid-March 2014 with a song made by Duble Sidekick.
