To be honest, I think there's three pop groups with this name.
One of them is the American group, another is the Jpop trio back in 2000, and the third is the Jpop group you see now. The entire lineup and music of the Jpop group is so different from before. I like them both though.
I love how the main pic currently shows both the American group & the Japanese group. Fans should strike that sort of compromise on other artist/group LFM pages as well, instead of arguing about which group that they feel is better. Some of us happen to like 2 (or more) groups with this same name, so it's pointless to argue. Why all the predjuice on here?!?
