The Top Ten

G-Dragon (Big Bang)
Most charismatic? As in, when these leaders are to be seated in a row, someone who catch your attention the most? The posture, the skills they have, the image of public about them, I think are the most determining factor. It's GD alright.

His posture screams confidence and politeness at the same time.

He's NOT just a singer, but AN ARTIST. Know the difference, people? To make it simple, a singer sing, while an artist makes an art of EVERYTHING they are doing, be it singing, writing lyrics, composing, producing, or SIMPLY WEARING CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES.

The public image? I can't say all news about him are good, especially after some scandals about him. But he tried his hardest to compensate for it all. He tried hard to bring happiness to people through his arts (songs, performances, etc). The important thing is, HE SHOWED HIS EFFORTS. If you want to bring happiness but your acts are little, half-hearted, and not worth mentioning or attention, what did you do that for? No one receives the impact. But GD tried his best to make everyone who are willing to listen to him, get impact of what he's doing.
He really cares about his members, and tries his best in composing and producing the songs. He has many roles in the group, from the rapper to vocalist to producer, composer and lyricist. GD THE BEST~
Amazing! I haven't even seen him live and he still amazes and blows me away!
[Newest]G dragon is obviously number one

2Leeteuk (Super Junior)
Leeteuk is an amazing leader. He still keeps the group together no matter what, sure members leave and its hard but he still keeps his cool to make sure everyone is still happy with each other. He is nice and cares about every single one of his members.
Leeteuk, I would say he isn't at the top yet, but he's the best leader to me! He takes care of his members really weell
He's really a charismatic leader! You know guys? A charismatic person is a person that can make somebody 'flying' without do anything :) and he does! Without do anything, he will make anybody 'flying'. No doubt but an exellent leader. Leeteuk Hwaiting!
[Newest]Its because no one can have what has been through leeteuk life and he still has a strong heart and will

3Taeyeon (SNSD)
Taeyeon has this one charm when she dance or sing, people just know that she is the leader. She has an ability to hold people into her. She is in her own class. Even though she is a leader, but she can't put aside the dorky side of her. Without her I can't imagine what snsd will do. She is friendly, warm, dorky and also cute leader. Snsd jjang. Taeyeon fighting!
It was just because of SNSD's fan, I like her, but I think Yuri is more charismatic than her! (Sorry)


She's not very charismatic, but she is very cute and pretty. She cares about the other members so much, She is funny and dorky, which makes SONES love her even more.
[Newest]She just the best for me ♥

4CL (2NE1)
She's the baddest female! She's smart, got swag and oh so awesome on stage. She's also the responsible one in the group eve though she's not the oldest... She's the B-E-S-T.
She has this really strong presence on stage, your attention just goes to her. Like no matter how many artists stand together on stage with her she just stands out. Her confidence and energy levels are like on another level at the same time she's shy and timid. I think these the contrasting characteristics of hers makes her more charismatic.
Charismatic kpop leader seoul city ever had! :D
[Newest]I love CL because she's so very unique in her clothing, then she is so caring to her fellow members...

5Kim Hyun Jung (SS501)
I vote for him, because I know he went through a lot of problems and he solved all of them alone, I'm sure it was hard! I always believed that he has charisma & I love it very much;but after all that happened for SS501, I was one of those who thought it's his fault, after all he is leader! It was hard to keep faith in him! But now, I know I was wrong and from bottom of my heart I want to support him and I believe to him! (oh, it was so sad! )


He is daebakk nothing to say really. Fighting. Come together son love you oppa continue your hard work
Handsome, good acter, good singer, he is also a wonderful rapper and... As a leader in his solo activities he proved that he is really popular in the world & he is a true wave in his country and guess what, he is a reall charismatic leader!


[Newest]Kim hyun joong
He is the best lider of the world
Kim hyun joong fighting
Ss501 comeback

6Kris (EXO-M)
He is the best leader :D He cares so much about his team. They call him as a father in EXO group.. :D
Laziest in EXO but a leader... So perfect...


[Newest]He so cool and handsome, he is cold but he has care for the other member that's why he is the most charismatic leader for me

7Taecyeon (2PM)
Taecyeon would be a great leader because his a great team member and his been through rough times but pulls through so I think he has that leadership with him and even though Taeyeon is in rough day and times we will always support him! ~2PM' <3 Hottest will always support!
He isn't the leader but if he is or he will someday, you got my vote, oppa! He can control everything well
Is he the leader?! Oh, my god, then... He is the best choice! He is wonderful rapper and... He is a reall one!
Trust me, he has charisma!


8Suho (EXO-K)
He sticks to the rules like a gum. Sometimes his straight and inflexible mindset is a good thing as he is serious, but sometimes I think he should think of himself more. Suho is multi-talented, he can lead and group of 5 dorky monkeys who most of them are taller than him himself, dance and sing! He is always serious and hardworking just like his birth name suggests.
Suho is so attractive, and handsome, and also super talented, he deserves to be I top 10
He is exo's mother. He deserves it laugh out loud
[Newest]Best leader ever. Very caring, very mature, very nice.

9Yong Hwa (CN Blue)
I'm just recently following the band, but it was love at first hearing! Above all, Yong Hwa's voice was amazing, I love his personality, how he treats his fellow members and everything! Perfection is the best word to describe him!
I love him! He is an amazing leader and just full of talent!
Everybody go crazy whenever he's singing his songs..
And I'm one of that everybody..
[Newest]Who wouldn't love this uber talented leader. And a very very very very handsome and charismatic Yong yong. Hearing his voice is enough to make everyone crazy

10U-know (TVXQ)
As I said before a leader should be handsome, has a good voice, be a good dancer and the most importent thing is charsima, tell me TVXQ's fans, doesn't he have all this abelities?! (ok, for whom which are disagree, I knoe he doesn't have very good singing skill but trust me he is a wonderful rapper and dancer)


... U-KNOW oppa... Has Everything a good leader must possess, in full Package... I rest my case...
We love you U-know...
He's like the coolest thing on stage. There was once when Eunhyuk, Taemin, Kai and Yunho had to dance together on stage. And like they are all one of my top biases in their groups (Eunhyuk - 3rd, Taemin - 3rd, Kai - 2nd, Yunho - 1st) but I was like looking at Yunho more than half of the time haha. HE WAS JUST TOO HOT FOR THE HUMAN EYES.
The leader of rising god from the east deserves #1

The Contenders

11Kahi (After School)
Kahi is ageless, she's 32 and still looks as hot as the day she debuted. Kahi one of the greatest entertainers in entertainment history. She is a very hard worker, well known for her dancing prowess, great leadership skill, awesome physique/abs. Kahi has a charismatic tough looking exterior but inside she has a kind soft heart.
I'm not sure about her (because I don't know her vary much), all I know is that she is adorable!


I wish that Kahi didn't leave After School. She had so much charisma and she was extremely talented.

12Seung Ho (MBLAQ)
He is really charismatic and responsible.
He is the best leader I've ever seen...
He is just... Perfect!

13Victoria (Fx)
She is warm and adorable. No one in the kpop industry can resist her charm. Victoria is popular among male group because of her beautiful appearance. Victoria is a cool type of person as well as krystal. Victoria never show off with her ability neither trying in being funny because she thinks people might don't like her for that attitude. She is a very sensible leader.
Vic umma cooks and takes care of her group members well and she is fun leader too.

14Sunggyu (INFINITE)
Sunggyu is the best when handling the members. I think we should consider that :)
I really like infinite especially the leader and main vocalist, sunggyu. Their song is really great and their dance is powerful. Hope they will still sing until forever
Infinite is the best band ever...
And sunggyu is the best leader ever
[Newest]Sunggyu is so so cute. he should be in top 5, he is main vocal, he can rap, he can make everyone happy, he is the best leader!

15Onew (SHINee)
Onew is awesome, caring and most of all is a good leader. Everyone has their place in SHINee and Onew isn't one of those leaders who like to own the stage, but when he does go on stage he's awesome. But... Getting off stage may be hard considering he might a) get loss b) trip and fall forward or backwards AND c) he might take things with him(like microphones >. <). But this shows he's human and isn't uptight. And most of all his band members love him even his awkward moments. Hwaiting Oppa!
HE IS THE CUTEST LEADER EVER! His trademark-eye smile-captures the heart of everyone young and old. Although he looks so shy and quiet, but when you watch some videos of Shinee in reality show, you wouldn't expect him to be funny. Onew condition. He is funny in his own little ways and that makes him attractive.
He may not be very talkative (Jonghyun is seen at the front more) and at first glance, I wouldve never guessed that he is the leader but nevertheless, he is great at it. A wonderful leader, who takes care of his younger members and supports them.

16DooJoon (Beast)
Yoon Doojoon is really a good leader of Beast! He always takes care of other members in every case. Besides, he has good low voice, excellent dance skill and is very charming. Ahh, there another thing I want to say. That is he have good live performance skill and I love him :X
Yoon Dojoon is a great laeder to beast. His voice is really wonderful. He always take care of beast members. He also has powerful dance. Although sometimes he act like a child but I still like him
Yoon Dujun is hyungnim in Beast, he is the best leader. He always take care all members, if you don't believe, you can check it at many video about beast. So please vote Him. Thanks ^_^

17JR (Nu'est)
Even though he isn't the eldest in the band, he still seems like the oldest and is a good team leader^^
First time I hear nuest song, I have fallen for them especially their leader, jr or his real name jong hyun. He really attractive and his voice is great.

18Hyorin (SISTAR)

19Soohyun (U-Kiss)

20Eric Mun (Shinhwa)
This man is out of imagination. His smile, his personalities and the way he leads his group is amazing.

21Bang Yong Guk (B.A.P)
Bang yong guk needs to be in the top 10. Besides being a brilliany writer and composer, he is also very intelligent (1st in his class) is charming and kind, generous. He's the kind of leader that demands respect; the kind of leader people feel they need to impress because he deserves to be respected.
He cares about the other members so much and takes care of them. He is a very charming man especially with his deep cave man voice that carries so much emotion in it :D saranghae oppa
The first time I saw him, I was so awed~~ Yongguk is so charming! :DD

22Kim Jaejoong (JYJ)
He's the epitome of multitalented perfection
His voice, face, acting, talents (beatboxing, designing, directing) make him such an amazing person. If you haven't listened to his solos, you should. His voice is so emotional
Always keep the faith!

23Rap Monster (BTS)

24Sunye (Wonder Girls)
She is kind and a really nice person who always helps people'

25Jinyoung (B1A4)
He is so cute, funny, handsome and intelligent. I love him. He always has something new and interesting to show to everyone, mostly to their fans.
He is cute and funny. His voice make me always remember him. He really take care of others members. He also loves bana. I really like him
Jinyoung is the best leader! He's smart, he's handsome and his voice is amazing... (@. @)

26Hyosung (Secret)
Our lovely leader! Keep going on!
Your company should be more popular than cube
You must hit 4minute & a pink!

27N (VIXX)
N should be in top 10, he's really intelligent and he takes care of the member very well... N fighting! VIXX fighting!
N is such a good leader. He holds VIXX together and includes everyone, is so enthusiastic, tries his hardest all the time, and, somehow, stands the shadeism from his fellow members.


28Moon Jun Young (ZE:A)
Jun young leehoo moon after leader is the best♥

29Jungah (After School)

30Jimin (AOA)

31Seo Eunkwang (BtoB)
Maybe there little poeple doesn't know btob but their are a very great group especially their great leader, eunkwang. His voice is really charming and take care of his members.

32Ashley (Ladies' Code)
She's one of the best dancers out there. She's great leader. And she's from Queens.


34Donghyun (Boyfriend)

35Hyuna (4Minute)

36Solar (Mamamoo)

37Zico (Block B)
How can Zico be so low on a list for charisma. He has taken the persona of the "bad boy", shown his serious side. He has been compassionate and shown his fun loving side. From his underground rap to calabrarations with stars like HyunA (4 minute) to writing hit songs for upcoming stars like "Beautiful" for Park Boram, he has proven himself an icon in k-pop. All of that and I still haven't mention he is the front man for Block B. He has shouldered the responsibility of the controversies and still manages to lead the group to bigger and bigger heights with each single they have released in the past few years. Zico definitely deserves a much higher spot on this list.
You forgot to mention he was the leader that held block b together through their year off and their lawsuit against their record company. Most bands have fallen apart during similar struggles. But instead block b admitted they grew closer. How many of the other leaders could have lead their group through such a hard time and come back intact a better than before

38Park Chorong (A Pink)
She is a big troll but despite this she is very charismatic leader, she gives a lot of advices to her members and takes care of them. And she can also be harsh when they practice.
She's dorky leader and lovely
Chorong is good leader and pretty girl ever in the world. CHORONG JJANG

39C.A.P (Teen Top)
I love C.A. P love Teen Top love Angel
C.A. P forever. Angel and teentop fighting
