The band released three studio albums and a collection of live tracks and B-sides before breaking up in 1995.

SUGAR (2) (슈가) was a 4 member moderately successful girl pop group originating from South Korea. The group began in 2001 with their first album “Tell Me Why” that included their 2 singles “Sweet Love” and “Tell Me Why”. Afterwards a year later they released their sophomore album “Shine” which was more successful than their first. Like other fellow Korean acts SUGAR emerged into the Japanese market with their first two singles “GO THE DISTANCE” and “All My Loving” after their Sophomore Korean album. Then soon afterwards Jung Eum, a member of Sugar decided to leave the group after their mini album “Secret” was released. Replacing her with Haleen, SUGAR moved on to release 2 more singles and their sophomore Japanese album. Then moving back to their roots SUGAR released their 3rd Korean album “Sweet Lips” 1 year after their mini album “Secret”. Yet after this release Soo Jin announced that she would also be leaving SUGAR to concentrate on an acting career. With the release of SUGAR’s sophomore Japanese album “COLORS 4 WISHES”, each member decided to do solo works. Then on December 20, 2006 KBS World Radio announced that SUGAR would disband at the end of 2006. 아유미 (Ayumi/Ahyoomee) has since become a member of the SMTOWN family.

Only four months after the departure of 殊 (Koto), a newsletter was sent to fans explaining that they were to disband. This was due to musical differences between the members and they felt they were unable to continue on as a band.
