Best Male Kpop Bands


The Top TenXW

1Big Bang

I'm a proud V.I. P & I don't care if you don't like their rap, because you don't how much fun Bigbang can do on STAGE. You can tell its V.I. P show the Big Show... Big Bang is also known for their own Fashion Style. That's why many upcoming Korean Boy Group are following their own styles. At the same time BIGBANG was labelled as the " REVOLUTIONARY GROUP OF HALLYU WAVE". If I we're you must listen to their songs from the beginning until their comeback songs this 2012, because its gotten hotter. And I hope their will be more V.I. P's this upcoming 2012. Because BIGBANG will make you go BANG & make you fantastic in your seats.

They are simply an amazing band based on their music, style originality and just over all being themselves make them the best, though their sound has changed bit by bit over the years, they take the change in stride and make it the very best they can and their very best has proven to be amazing in all aspects, in my opinion, which is why I feel they are the best male kpop band out there.

Forever a VIP. Bigbang is the king of K-pop for sure. I'm really proud to be a VIP and I love GD. He's so talented, funny, cute and hot. BIGBANG fighting! GD fighting!

They're the kings of the new kpop generation and if you don't like the, certainly your favorite idol likes them

SHINee is the ultimate best Kpop group in Korea. They can wear off any kind of styles and still look amazing.. They are not just singers and dancers, but also actors, mc's, hosts end etc. Two of the members have participated in a korean show called Immortal songs, in that show they really show off different singing abilities. They have been to different countries to hold concerts such as the U. S, France, Japan, Thailand and so on. Right now they are back with their 4th album titled Sherlock and their track Sherlock (Clue+Note) has an musical feeling and it shows off a stronger dance and vocals. SHINee is a group that constantly gets better and better. They deserve this title.

SHINee is the best... Yeah. I love you and Shawol love you guy too. Sherlock is a big hit now... Yeah. SHINee fighting

SHINee is the best KPop band for me. They are more than just handsome faces, they are very hardworking, talented and passionate guys. They became my inspiration and I learned a lot from them. One of which is to work hard and never to give up on your dreams. They have been a part of me even in my schooling. Every time stress overcomes me due to school works, they never fail to make me smile, esp my ultimate bias Minho Oppa. <3

Thank you SHINee! You're the best! Fighting!

I love shinee. I love the new release album that 1 of 1. Please shinee visit sri lanka too.

Diverse music videos (themes that range from No More Dream to Just One Day), engages fans in meet and greets, powerful lyrics and choreography, hardworking, almost equal split parts in songs (I love this part the most, because it upsets me when you have a certain number of group members, and one or two members would get like one or two small line (s)? ). Above all, I enjoy their strong stage presence and tough exterior when need be, and their bubble, cutesy personalities off stage. They're fun to watch and great to listen to. Their dorkiness, respect and love for their fellow group members and their fans is sincere. Stay true to yourself, BTS. You're all admirable men and will succeed in all you do as long as you stay true to yourself and believe in all you do.

They should, at least, belong to the top 5. Why? Their debut song has received much attention fit for a popular boy group. Not only that, every time they make a comeback, they get even better than the last time. They compose their own songs and their tracks are crafted with their own style and the story of their life towards their dream of becoming an artist.They are not only powerful, passionate and emotional dancers, but they are also hardworking and determined artists. They are crowned as the Best Rookie and they are known for their very difficult choreographies. They are very funny, expressive, loving and respectful. Their dorkiness adds their favorable chance of being the best kpop boy group. They are very youthful yet they show maturity in their music. They show passion towards the fans and they are very down-to-earth. Needless to say, they are the dorkiest group I've ever known. By the time I started to stan them, I knew I can't backout.

BTS is by far one of the BEST male idol groups out there today. Not only do they have phenomenal singers and rappers, but they are also composers and their lyrics really speak to their audiences. BTS' music really pushes the envelope and pushes against the status quo which I admire. Not only that but they also have such colorful and quirky personalities which they let shine every chance they get; each member is different and unique in their own special way. They aren't concerned with projecting the pristine "idol" image that so many other groups strive to uphold; they like to be seen as actual human beings and not put on some pedestal. I also love their performances; such dynamic stage presence and crisp clean dancing, accompanied with powerful vocals and amazing rapping is what BTS does best. I love their diverse sound as well, able to be both hard and intense and also sweet and mellow. What's more is they are so sweet and down to earth with their fans and one of the dorkiest male ...more

At the Philippines we are not so exposed to this type of music which is Kpop and the only group that I ever heard of and became a fan of is BTS at the first I was not really that interested but most of my friend said that BTS is the best and they are

4Super JuniorSuper Junior is a South Korean boy band. Formed in 2005 by producer Lee Soo-man of S.M. Entertainment, the group comprised a total of thirteen members at its peak.

They are the BEST AMONG the rest and still no one can be better than thEM ELF forever go SUPER JUNIOR! FIGHTING!

They are the best kpop male group ever, they helped establish a fan base for kpop groups - not saying that they are the "only" ones but they are one of the groups that helped hallyu wave. SUJU forever!

They're the best in every single way, they have songs with a lot of meaning I wish that they were 13 again! Forever 13! Go suju! Elf forever!

I love this group also yesung and kyuhyun..

5EXOExo is a South Korean-Chinese boy group based in Seoul. Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2011, the group debuted in 2012 with twelve members separated into two subgroups, EXO-K and EXO-M, performing music in Korean and Mandarin, respectively.

EXO IS THE BEST. The members are all extremely good looking, and the group is all-rounded. The looks are there, the dance and stage presence as well. They also have a fair share of good singers and rappers, and each individual member is able to do all 3. They get along really well too, and their music videos are close to perfection. They began with difficult dances, and it looks like that is an attribute that will never end. They are very good at variety as well as talking.(Kris can speak 4 languages fluently) They also have a good mix of ages to take care of one another and to appeal to a wide rage of fans of different ages. They are unique individuals with special skills and good, determined personalities. Each member's personality has it's own flavour, and together it makes a giant, epic, successful group, proved in the way they've been so successful since debut. EXO is truly the BEST!

Exo is a very good group, each member is special and gives a special charm to add to their wide range of skills, they are cheerful, charming and above all talented and very gifted. They provided a lot of effort and deserve the award for best rookie group and proof of their popularity they have represented several brands and made the cover of several magazines and add to that they have sold the most albums among new groups. Exo good luck ^ ^.

Exo I really hope that they wil win the best rookies of 2012 because they deserve it... Sm artists are all good.. Suju, snsd, dbsk, boa, shinee, fx and exo daebak.. And for the antis. Stop saying that they are the worst new group.. Try to search them on YouTube and you'll got addicted with their songs. Exo hwaiting!. SARANGHAEYO.. I never love kpop male band like I love exo right now laugh out loud

For me EXO is number one forever! EXO for the WIN!

2PM in my opinion is the most hardworking boy kpop group, they aren't the most popular, but should be. If you watch their shows and documentaries, you will see that they have gone through so much just to become the people we know today. I've seen hot blood men and I saw how much they suffered. But even so, they still keep a smile on their faces everyday and they never disappoint us HOTTESTS. If you watch 2PM Show or Idol Army or Wild Bunny, you will see how lively and wild they are. 2PM's relationship amongst each other is the strongest. Everyone is close with everyone. I feel that the member are extremely grateful for what they have now and always thank us for it. If you look at their songs, they are deep and meaningful, 2PM even wrote a song called Thank You for the HOTTESTS and the HOTTEST only. They have been together for 5 years and they have stuck together like eternal glue. They are my ultimate bias and it's so hard to find a different kpop group like them. Their performances ...more

I love these guys! They are definitely my favourite kpop group. I love every single member, haha, maybe Nichkhun a little more because I've seen him on WGM with Victoria and he was so sweet. 2PM also never fails to make me smile. Especially Wild Bunny with Jay is hilarious! I always watch that show when I'm down. Their songs are really catchy, I can totally relate to the contents of the songs, their choreographies are cool and strong, they also do acrobatics, they are so dorky and sweet, handsome, talented, beastly and the list goes on! I also like their strong bond within the band. They also try to get closer to the fans with, E.G. "a song for you from 2PM". They are also kinda unique because there isn't another beastly group out there. (my knowledge) They are simply awesome and still going strong after all they have gone through. I'm proud to be a HOTTEST. Lots of love for 2PM!

They are nice, funny and good looking. I believe that they can one day become internationally recognized! (they are quite popular around the world already though)

You are my one only best group forever

INFINITE are the best of the best!
They are handsome, talented and have a very nice attitude towards fans and other people.
They are popular for their synchronized dancing performances, amazing vocals and cool raps.
They are very good at variety programs.
Who could forget them?
Sunggyu is the grandpa leader who is very protective and caring to his members. His vocals are amazing and can hit pitches perfectly. He is known for his small eyes that even if he winks, it can't be seen &. In fact, he's also a solo artist. His 60 Seconds, I need you etc. Was very good! He is full of passion in singing.
Dongwoo... Well... Who will forgot the dino? His rap are so cool and amazing! He's laugh can make you smile even if you're sad! He's also quite good in dancing and whenever there should be a duo, he and Hoya will be the two.. He's singing skills are also good! He has emotion :) Most of rappers aren't really good in singing but Dongwoo, I'm sure he'll take the number 1 spot in ...more

Infinite is a really brilliant, wonderful boy band. Besides having really good looks, being totally handsome and charming, they also have amazing personalities. Who could forget the time when they actually stayed back to help pick up all the rubbish other idols had left behind? They also have fun character, as portrayed on Ranking King and Sesame Player, being so innocent that we could even forget they were actually idols. Besides, Infinite is really talented in the area of performing. Singing, dancing, rapping, acting, and even MC-ing, you name it, all the talents are in this band. Sunggyu, who is a thoughtful leader and sings beautifully with all his soul; Dongwoo who can rap fast and is charismatic, and dances well; Woohyun, with his powerful God-like voice and can awe everyone in a single room with his gorgeous voice which can turn from strong to sweet and gentle, and has acted before; Hoya, who is an awesome rapper and has fluid, smooth moves when dancing; Sungyeol, who can MC ...more

Though they don't promote outside of Asia (Only in Korea and Japan), I'm pretty sure they're well-known worldwide. They have powerful dance skills and are ALWAYS 99.9% synchronized. Sunbaes see them as a group who will succeed because of their attitude toward work and others. Everyone in this group can actually sing and individual members have his own talent. Overall, what makes INFINITE the best is their love for Inspirits. No matter what they do, they always remember the fans.

Them was the best for me..; )

Every member is so talented and loves everything about what they do. And in all honesty, all of the B2ST members are complete dorks. Which is another reason why I love them. Not to mention that there is no real favorite in the group, each member is loved equally. Maybe I'm totally biased because B2ST is the first group I was introduced to, but in my opinion Beast is the B2ST!

Listen to any of their songs, see any of their performances, see there sweet charming personality and realize b2st is the best.

I know other groups, they are good but beast give me different feeling about them. Hard to describe them with great word, more than amazing, more than cool, They have unique characters, it make them so different than other. Good harmony, in depth lyrics and song that will make you love their song, hard dance move, they full of sincerity! They always playing around, full of silliness that will make fans or people around them will happy and laughing all day. But when they sing at the stage, they are really idol who deserve to be the best! When they are singing, you will know that "oh that is beast " because their vocal is different, may be they are gropu with best ballad song, listen to on rainy days, 12.30 and Ribbon as example, you never say those are bad song...

Beast is my first love. I can't let the other group jump into my heart. They always stay for no reason, because I don't need any reason to love them, all of them, no exception. Even hyunseung, I'm so sad when they are apart. Brothers are not supposed to be broken, right? Please, be there for each other.

One of the best kpop group out there. There songs always have strong and badass meaning to it such as warrior, mercy, one shot and badman. But let's not forget about the dancing. For example, I have been to one of their concert before (something I will never forget) and it's amazing. You feel will the stage is about the break any minute (actually happened) because of the power and energy up there. I recommend their songs for anyone who is tried of those girly boy band. I <3 them. A baby forever!

They are just amazing and awesome. They are completely stunning that they take my breath away. They are powerful and cute at the same time. They are the best rookies I have ever seen.

One of the very few k-boybands, if not the only one, that is actually good and does not hide behind good looks. They had made a fictional backstory about the members when they debuted, in the Warrior era, that kind of reminded me of Gorillaz. (just without the cartoon aspect.) Most importantly though, they make actually good music. They try making music in different genres (mostly hip hop) and, surprisingly enough, they do very well. Each one of the members has certain vocal talent, which you can easily distinguish once you've heard songs and get to know the members' voices. Leader Yongguk, for example, has a unique husky "cave" voice, Zelo's rapping skills and perky voice are amazing, Daehyun has the ability to reach really high notes and it's beautiful. All the members have unique aspects to offer to a song, which with all of them combined, makes a great result. Their dancing skills are extremely admirable and they are very synchronized when they do live performances. ...more

BAP is a bit underrated, which is sad because they deserve more love and support for their unique music and work. All 6 members are talented in their own special way. I love their music. It's catchy and different. My favorite song is "One Shot".

10Got 7

Okay I admit their debut song wasn't the best but once you get into these boys you can't escape. Jackson is absolutely hilarious and surprisingly talented oh and very good looking too. And the entire group is full of amazing boys. The fact that three of them speak English fluently makes them even better. And their new song A is just perfection. If you're ever bored I suggest watch anything with GOT7 these boys are insanely entertaining. This group is now my ultimate favorite kpop group.

Besides good singing skills, rapping skills, dancing, martial arts tricking, good fashion sense, handsome and unique faces, GOT7 members are really entertaining in their own way.

One could see that the relationship of the seven members are close to each other, making them honest and comfortable with each other as shown in their variety shows.

They are also hilarious in their own way thus attracting more fans. Their childish thinking makes the fans laugh at them nonstop. I especially recommend watching Igot7 or Real Got7 to know their funny and friendly side.

The fact that they are an international group (4 members from Korea, 1 from Hongkong, 1 from LA, and the last from Thailand), I think that they could get more fans in the future because the fans from these countries would of course support their country men.

This group is also comfortable with skinship with each other and would not even bother to look at their image/appearance as long as they are having ...more

How can you not, their beautiful, besides some are saying it's just because they aren't from Korea, but that's the case for a lot of K-Pop groups. They have fun but come together really easily and work hard, I love to see them progress and have fun. Plus tumbling.

Underrated as hell

The Contenders

11F.T Island

FT Island is so underrated. Lee Hongki's voice is amazing and brings so much to the group. Because they are a band and not an idol group, they don't get as much attention, but they deserve the best because they are amazing. Their songs are so meaningful. Lee Hongki sings the songs so well, putting his heart into every one.

F. T Island really is the best in my opinion, because they bring their own style and skill into the music that they make, and so, you can 'feel' the music, the way it makes your skin crawl when you listen to it.

THEY DESERVE TO BE #1 if you will listen to their song you will know then
Hongki oppa can sing in 7 octave range so THEY ARE THE BEST!

You guys really rock I swear!

DBSK are so talented, not just pretty faces. They are the pioneers of the hallyu wave, they are the ones who spread it, not like nowadays bands who depended on the wave to get famous. DBSK worked so hard, from performing in front of a small crowd to thousands and millions of fans worldwide. Their achievements are countless and these comes from pure efforts, not merely looks like some bands does nowadays, but of TRUE efforts. All five of them sings so well live and dance powerful and harmonises perfectly. Their looks gives their power a bonus. They are simply the best boyband ever, with the vocals, moves, appearance and beautiful hearts. They aren't just kpop, but LEGENDS. Always keep the faith even if it takes forever because its everything is worth it to see this five legends performing on 1 stage, to give a breathtaking performance once again. AKTF Cassiopeias!

DBSK are the most talented idol group in my heart. And every one of them have this kind of talent which makes them one of the best kpop group I ever known..

DBSK are the most talented idol group to have ever debuted in South Korea period. They are number one. I am not a Cassie, but this is the truth.

Should be higher than bts and the others like what

14Teen Top

I've seen many others boy groups but teen top left the most impact on me. The members all have a great sense of variety and have really amazing dance abilities. Even as I discover other boy groups, I still go back to teen top and I have never seen a group as special as teen top. Each member are special and unique on their own and I love watching the variety shows they appear on even if it's just one of them as everyone of them really make my day. It's really sad that they aren't as popular as they should be and I'm sure they deserve more attention than they have now.

Teen Top has an amazing vocalist I feel that it's so unfair that they are not that popular it's so unfair for their beautiful voices

Teen Top is such a talented group! They are different from other kpop group and they're focused on leg dance. love you Teen Top esp. Ricky oppa!

For me teen top is the best.

! Kim Hyun Joong! The music is great and dancing it really crisp.

No one can ever compare to the. I have currently become obssessed with Exo, like most, but evem then ss501 is still number 1. They have always been one of the top kpop bands. When they comeback they will reclaim their spot. They have everything as a band. They have main vocals, those who use their voices as instruments because of their amazing vocal capabilities, they have singers the ones with also amazing voices that specialize in portraying emotion of the songs, each member is unique with a killer personality. They can be weird and dorky and sexy and mysterious the nest moment. They are cute but at the same time remain manly. Their dancing is also breath taking as is their live singing. Their energy passion and persecerance, and also their humility and kindness mke them amazing. In conclusion, they are perfect because even their imperfections make them perfect

They are amazing singers and great actors. I actually found out about them after watch the first season of "Boys Over Flowers." If you haven't seen it you have to watch it, its absolutely amazing! After watching it, I fell in love with them!

SS501 are the best forever

U-KISS is extraordinarily talented and it's a shame they aren't recognized for it.
They are so down to earth and faithful to their fans although they haven't won a music show yet. They went through a tough time with the member change and came back even stronger with high quality dancing, singing, and music in comparison to other groups out there. AJ even helps compose some of their songs, and they're all great.


And besides my friends and classmates love them so much!

Kiseop I like his outfit so much and of course dong ho is so cute!

U-Kiss are an amazing band. They work incredibly hard and they really cherish their fans. I love how their songs aren't all the same, they give something different each time, and all of the songs get stuck in your head! Their dancing is so cool too, it's hard to look away! On top of that, they all have individual personalities but are all really nice and fun :) Sending love from New Zealand!

Kevin oppa! You're so cute.

Each of them play different roles and has different charms.. With the most charismatic leader Yang Seungho, this group different from others because of their unity and closeness among them or should I say they rely to each other so much and owned deep close family relationship. The leader who always monitor his fellow member with discipline and manner, although been called as a devil he also an angel for his group. He never leave them and always be there for them.G. O who has powerful vocal and amazing voice, he really takes care each of his member and been called mom among his member. Joon really an amazing actor and he really express his feeling very well in acting. His dance is sexy and full of charm, but for me Seungho is most talented dancer in Mblaq. His dance always charm and has magic itself that I will keep watching he dance although the other member also talented in dancing. In Thunder case, he has potential to be a great composer and express his feeling well in the song. ...more

Mblaq music is not the typical songs you can usually hear in kpop they have there own style who makes them more unique.. And every one of them have this kind of talent which makes them one of the best kpop group I ever known.. They are very charismatic on stage.. But when they Are not they are the most dorkiet people I ever known:))))

Seriously.. They are the best ever.. Every one of them stood out in their own individual talent., they are not the usual kpop groups who's making same songs every time.. You can see that when they releasd their every album its different from the previous one making them more outstanding.. And the love they are giving to those people who believe in them is very pure, they have the most amazing leader seungho who can make you shut up with just one glare..G. O who's singing ability is the best that I hear.. Joon's personality that can make you laugh every time.. Cheondung charm's that's same with her sister(sandara park) and the maknae mir who's humor.. That can put a smile on your face.. Mblaq fighting!

They are a very charming group with individual members having good looks, good personality and even cute talents.

B1A4 daebak like forever!... With their new song; Baby I'm Sorry, they look much hotter&better. When they are on stage, they look charismatic but off the stage, they are the funniest&cutest guys ever. Support B1A4 all the way they are the best&their new album; Ignition... Be The One, All For One..

The most approachable, lovely, friendly oppa GROUP. The love and appreciation they show their fans is amazing and their songs never fail to bring a smile to my face. BANAS UNITE! Let's continue to support them!

They are just the dorks that makes you smile when your having a bad day. I have been in the kpop world for about 8 years now, meaning I have witness so many great boy groups, however ever since I saw these guys I knew that they were a unique group.

The members can not only sing and dance their songs, they even able to produce those songs themselves. That's the key

They are the reason I started listening to KPop. They have such an angelic voice. JYJ Fighting!

Yoochun is the reason why I listen to Kpop. JYJ you're the best. ALWAYS KEEP THE FAITH.

They're not the usual kpop group that relies heavily on techno sound but rather, they can sing acapella and any other music genres. They're so versatile that they can also belt out and rap as well. - eimarebiro

Very wonderful Band... My Favorite KPOP Band in South Korea... GO KIM JAEJOONG
