2 SS501

They deserve to be in top 5. since, they are not promoting as a group now, doesn't mean they are been forgotten! They are always the best when comes to singing, dancing and unity! These guys are really awesome as a group. Love ss501! Fighting!

I feel they are terribly underrated. They deserve a position among the top ten. I really wish they would get back together.

Legend of kpop :') sobs. Love them 4 ever

SS501 forever

3 Girl's Generation

Girls' Generation brought me into K-pop with their song "Gee". They are indeed one of the best K-pop groups. They are known internationally and even performed on David Letterman. Good luck Girls' Generation on your US domination!

SNSD bring me into kpop. Their song "GEE" is so GREAT. They are not just beautiful, but they can bring so much fun to their fans. Always support Girls Generation all the time. Love them so much =D

Girls Generation is one of the best kpop groups. And they are the best girl groups. There's no girl group that can beat them. They are a bunch of beautiful girls. And all of them are very talented. Taeyeon and Jessica, they are the main singers in SNSD and Taeyeon are one of the best singer in Korea. Hyoyeon and Yuri, they are the main dancers and Hyoyeon are one of the best dancer in Korea. Tiffany, Seohyun and Sunny are the the lead singers. Sooyoung and Yoona are the lead dancers. Even if Tiffany, Seohyun, Tiffany can't sing as good as Taeyeon and Jessica, and Sooyoung and Yoona can't dance as good as Yuri and Hyoyeon, but they are still talented. And they are all talented in their own ways. Girls' Generation are one of the most successful girl group in Korea. They won very many awards. They can beat other groups easily. They are the #1 girl group forever. 2ne1 can't and won't ever beat Girls' Generation.

Becuase I love them

4 BigBang

They don't stick to one image, they are always changing. They have the best music and are all talented, something you don't find in a lot of kpop groups.
Daesung: That heavenly voice.
Seungri: Is known to choreograph some of Big Bang's dances
T.O. P: He can actually rap compared to other kpop rappers
GD: Creates his own music
Taeyang: Plays piano and is like the Korean Ne-Yo

They have more talent than most groups. It's more than the training. They are NOT plastic, as many of the other groups are. THEY ACTUALLY WRITE THEIR OWN MUSIC! G Dragon is the genius behind that. TOP raps better than most K Pop stars, and he also writes his own music. Seungri dances unlike most people. He pulls off many things that other stars cannot. Taeyang, besides his amazing body, skills in dance, and great voice, plays phenomenal piano, which he also writes himself. Daesung's voice is of a range that is 3 octaves (for those of you who don't know, most people only have a range of about 1.5 octaves, and K Pop stars average a range of 2.5 octaves). But what stands out the most is that they dress well, are more humble than most groups, and also are unafraid to express their true selves (G Dragon shouts this especially loudly in his song, "Coup D'etat"). They are a group who outclasses all of the others, in my view, for the reasons above.

They have talent and they create their own music not like others who are famous specially for variety shows

They are the real kings, they are different, the first group to have a light stick in kpop industry, the first kpop group to perform on MTV, they invented the BIGBANG Formula, which means having rappers with different voice tones in a group, they are idols with the most number of songs charted on Melon Decade-End Chart; they got “Best Worldwide Act” award from the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards. 39% of worldwide votes, First K-Pop act to be the “Featured Artist of the Month” on MTV. Telecasted worldwide, First K-Pop act to chart on Billboard 200, peaking at number 150 by selling 4,000 copies,
Highest-charted K-Pop act on Billboard Social 50 Chart, debuted at number 24 on April 21st, 2012 and peaked at number 11 on June 9th, 2012. Stayed on the chart for a couple of weeks later, “Monster” swept all Korean music charts as soon as its release without any promotion, First K-Pop act to be featured on Time Magazine twice, First K-Pop act to be featured on twice ...more

5 2NE1 2NE1 2NE1 is a South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment in 2009. The group currently consists of CL, Bom, and Dara.

2NE1 is a legendary group that was overwhelmingly powerful as rookies. They've only been around for a couple of years, but they've set records, won awards, and done things no group before them has done. They've even had a very successful world tour. They're also very versatile with their music, going from the booming beat of I Am The Best to the relaxed, reggae feel of Falling in Love to the soft, emotional melodies of It Hurts and Lonely.

All four members are really really talented and unique. Despite the tiny numbers of variety show appearances, their group is well known and admired by many. Their popularity is undeniable, and it's not their looks or variety talent. It's their music.

2NE1 is a K Pop legend!

They truly bring the New Evolution into the music world. Who else has labels at the same time amongst others will.I. am Music Group ? Besides 2NE1 showed us a fresh and freaky way of style. They even have a own line of adidas. Gotta love them!

Exo has the appeal of getting this title

Now EXO should be number 1..they literally slayed every kpop boy band ever..they broke several records of kpop history..they are really the best no one could deny it

EXO gave me motivation to work harder when I was about to break! If you guys see this, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I don't know why

Very solid group with many talented in their personality not just one or two member that really good at dance and voice. Not just about their charismatic and handsome face, but they all has talented, unique and has very good attitude each members. SHINee the best! DAEBAKK!

I love SHINee for all the quality within them. Not only their voice but also personality, attitude, friendship and above all their dance and choereoghraphy. I hope that they will make good songs and be the most perfect kpop group. At least for myself... - nhs970511

All 3 are great performers.
Junsu dances VERY well.
Junsu and Jaejoong are amazing vocalists.
Yoochun has proven himself a wonderful actor.
Junsu has also proven himself an excellent musical actor.
Junsu and Jaejoong's solo albums both rocked.
They're funny, they're charming, they're honest.
What's not to love?

Idols who scold their fans for not being thoughtful are real idols. Plus they are awesome in singing!

JYJ are the best group ever.they are born to be a singer with powerful voice and killer dance.most of them have ability to be a main vocalist and main dancer.they are also a good actress.they are a multiple entertainer

Jyj is the best

V 30 Comments

To me, they are the most genuine idols of all the industry. They have something more than moves you deep down, because they give life to their lyrics. If you still wonder why they are able to keep their stance even with this hard competition, I highly recommend you to listen their albums, it's worth a try. Junhyung's inspiration never fades, Kikwang began to compose too, so their music universe is pure Beast and so, pure gold. Their vocals are amazing. All of them can sing and more than that, they express things differently, they speak, they bear their souls and give chills. Really. To the point that, I wouldn't mind listening to their voices without choreo, that's Beast. They never fail to impress me and change my mood to positive with their music and even with their personalities. I'm always sure they're 100% true towards us (Beauties) and they are one of the groups that shows the most love to their fans (acc Arirang and my own heart), in any situation. And I'll end up saying that ...more

B2ST IS THE BEST. All members have beautiful talent, and they always take care each other.

Yes I love them though cried when hyunseung left

First of all, I want to say, they have special place in my heart. Even though I wasn't a B2uty from the start, I will be a B2uty until the end of my life. They have gone through a lots of hard time, that is why they always felt thankful to their fans. BEAST has that special talent/color/type of their self that is really unique. To be honest, I watched like tons of Kpop videos and MV's, but BEAST videos' and MV's are just special.Among all Kpop idols, BEAST is the one that makes me want to know more about them. Thank you BEAST for every smile, laugh, tears and all the love you give to Beauties. Thank you to Jang Hyunseung too, thank you for your hard work and dedication over the years. We will continue to support you even you are not a member of BEAST anymore. We are Beauties for BEAST and Honeys for Jang Hyunseung. Beauties and Honeys, Beast and Jang Hyunseung, let's all of us grow old together until the end. No more words to say about how much they are special to me. I am proud to be ...more

The Contenders

11 Infinite

The 7 members are all talented! Sunggyu having the most powerful voice! Dongwoo for its exemplary dance moves and rapping skills! Woohyun having the golden/charismatic voice, Hoya being the best dancer in the group but can also hit high notes like the main vocals when he's also a rapper, Sungyeol may not have the skills of being the best dancer but we can't deny the fact that he still can manage to dance with main dancers of the group such as Hoya and Dongwoo, he can rap also. He rapped the rap part in the song "Cover Girl". L for having the unique voice that can also hit high notes like a main vocal and his dancing skills are also admirable. Sungjong is known for its girl group dance covers, not all male idols have the grace and guts to be able to pull off those girl group kinds of dances. They're all talented, they all can sing, they all can dance! they shine the brightest when the 7 of them are all together! Plus they're really kindhearted. They value their work.

They have this certain passion in their eyes because they really value their work, because they started from the bottom. But look where they are now, they are considered now to be a world class. They are now known all over the world!

They are on the verge of disbanding after they debuted due to its company's financial problems, but because of their hard works, they became #1 with the song "Be Mine". Their very first win.

Infinite is the best!

I like this because of sulli..

The most unique and the most great! They show every new concepts that other can't do. LEGENDS

The only group in kpop industry that is quite different and unique love them!

They are Legendary Group, they are unique that you can never compare in other group. they even dance in the rain, they becoming the first K-pop act to perform at SXSW. Their acclaimed second album, Pink Tape, was the only K-pop album on US music channel Fuse's '41 Best Albums of 2013, 4 walls are on the list of Best album. They deserved GRAND COMEBACK.

13 APink

Apink is one of the remaining legendary girl groups of kpop. With the disbandment of 2ne1, Wonder Girls and Sistar, Apink surely will start to rise to the top. They have great music, all unique with their own style. They have famous title tracks, such as NoNoNo, love, Remember, Mr. Chu and more. Even though they lost one member, Apink just renewed their contracts so they will still stay in the music industry. Wish Apink the best and remain as one of the best girl groups ever.

CUTE and love their music.. So innocent yet cute.. Especially NO NO NO

I love pink panda

One of the best rock bands out there! They're songs are one that'll stay in your head and heart for the rest of your life and you'll still not get tired of it. I really love boy groups that play their own instruments and CNBLUE alongside FTIsland are the top two bands that have honestly proven themselves in my eyes. YongHwa's guitar skills are seriously no joke. He is just that awesome. According to me, JongHyun has one of the best vocals I've heard and I'm envious of MinHyuk and his excellent drumming. This band is lacking in absolutely nothing! They are definitely one of the best rock bands around

One of the most talented band around where each member is a talented musician. On top of that, Yong Hwa as the band leader is a talented composer who writes many of the songs on CNBLUE's albums.

The best group among the other k pop group

We are T! The legendary KPOP group of all-time! There's only one word to describe these gorgeous two men, "PERFECTION".

TVXQ is the legendary kpop group... Tvxq fighting

TVXQ is the best KPOP group. They are legendary. I can really say that they are the rising God from the East, just like the group name means.

All their achievements and their appearance on the guinness world record book says it. They have the talent (look at their acapellas before saying anything) and they are always respected by other groups. No doubt, DBSK!

20 BTS/Bangtan Boys

Extremely talented, young, creative boys who aspire to create quality music and focus on problems of society. They have outstanding, mastered dancing skills and are incredibly talented for their youth. They have a fresh mind and kind heart as well as warm personalities many can look up to. With 7 members, Rapmonster, Jin, Suga, Jhope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, they are extremely close to each other and are a very good example for young minds to look up to for collaboration and cooperation. With such hard work and sincerity, they have 2 daesungs, 1 BMA, and 46 more awards and 76 more nominations, they have earned a very high population of fans and followers, as well as recognition from western celebrities and various artists. They are very unique as they focused on western music first, and then on Korea. As it has been 4 years of their debut, they have achieved more than many of the groups these days and are really exceeding. They are a group that are shining very bright. You really know ...more

I never thought I would love the music produced by BTS as much as I do. They are definitely not your ordinary nice guy boyband. They have some of the best raps I've ever heard. I'm in love with SuGa and J-Hope's rap skills. BTS is a band that's gonna make you love them no matter how much you try not to. They are cool and funny and have awesome personalities. They are seriously gonna go places...

Their songs keep going in my head, they have very creative dance moves, and seriously you're looking at fans.

ARMY WHERE YOU AT? OUR BOYS ARE AT #20? I'm very disappointed. We need to get this precious beings to the top ASAP. ARMY, FIGHTING! :D
