Top 10 Best K-Pop Groups of All-Time

The Top Ten
1 Big Bang Big Bang is a South Korean boy band formed by YG Entertainment. The group consists of 4 members: G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, and Daesung.

I've been hearing kpop for years but never got interested checking on any of them other than 2ne1 because of the fact that Dara is there. But just recently, I started checking on Big Bang, again because of Dara since I've been seeing articles/clips about DaraGon. So I got curious. Wow, this group Big Bang, they're incredibly good. I love the fact that each one has distinct voice, that even just by listening to their songs, you could tell who's seeing. I love their closeness, their humour, their silly etc. They have this awesome charisma, the way they perform and how theu connect to their audience is just super. I'm speaking based on all of videos I've seen on youtube. I wish I've been a fan since like when they just started. Too late for me becoming a fan, they will all soon be enlisting, who knows when they will be reunited again.

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 without any ...more

Big Bang is VIP in the kpop industry they are the BEST. Big Bang is talented, hard working, sincere, successful and authentic. With big bang each every member is successful not only with a group but as a solo artist as well. I think that they deserve the title for the best Kpop group because at this point they have matured so much from the past and they achieved so many things as as group. I am not just saying this as their fan but as an avid fan of Kpop I think they deserve ore than any other group. But for the record in my eyes they will forever be the kings of Kpop.

Diverse music styles. They can do good in every genre... Add the fact that each one of them have their own successful solo carreers... Before, I'm no fan of kpop until I stumbled to this group. Never did I imagine that some of the bop songs I sometimes heard playing are from them. I enjoy and love their music way before I knew K-pop... I also heard that they are one of the first group to write and produces their own music which is an incredible feat... They are icons of K-pop...

2 SS501

They are the rival of TVXQ during the peak of their career. They do deserve to be in the top 10 most especially that they have given a huge contribution in opening the Hallyu market in Japan and other Asian Countries. They may not be active right now but they have performed iconic songs that still has impact in the KPOP scene today. They are very talented and the variety of their personalities, yet evidently strong chemistry is what makes them one of the best. Triple S, their official fanclub still holds one of the fanclubs with most number of members up until 2013, despite their hiatus. One of the most underrated KPOP groups, indeed.

SS501 was the first kpop boyband I liked. They are totally fabulous. Each member was unique and had their own personality which together brought out SS501's charm. YoungSaeng, JungMin and HyungJun have the most out of this world vocals. It's different but in a beautiful way. I agree they weren't the best at dance but hey not everyone can be SHINee (I mean, SHINee is one in a billion. ) Anyways, I'm pretty sure that SS501 deserves to be in the top ten of best kpop groups of all time.

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!

First Kpop group I listened to I will always love them. I LOVE YOU SS501! :) <3 You guys will always be my ultimate bias group. Will continue supporting you guys! Deserve to be in the top of all time legendary group yes they are underrated but that's what makes them unique and amazing. SS501 isn't an underdog group. They really love their fans as well. LOVE YOU SS501 & PROUD OF YOU! Fighting!

3 Girls' Generation Girls’ Generation, also known as SNSD, was formed in South Korea, in 2007. The current members are Taeyeon, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, and Seohyun. Jessica left in 2014. They are known as the second best selling girl group of all time, Korea’s National Girl Group, and one of the best girl groups of all time.

Girl's Generations is all around the best girl group. They've gone through a rollercoaster of emotions. I joined their fandom about a year ago and I watched so many videos of them online. I never cried for a group this much and been happy as much as I have been for SNSD. They introduced me to other groups but SNSD will always be number one in my heart. I've grown to love all of them even though my bias is YOONA. But Taeyeon, Yuri, Seohyun, Sunny, Sooyoung, Hyoyeon, and Tiffany are all amazing and unique in their own special ways. I love them to the moon and back and I hope they will forever be the nation's girl group.

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.

I love Girls' Generation so much. They have been through a lot but they still stand strong as one. The smiles that they give to SONEs are really heart-warming, and they bring joy to everyone. They are not afraid to do dorky faces. They will always remain in my heart, to everyone's heart.

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!

4 2NE1 2NE1 was a South Korean girl group consisting of Bom, Dara, CL, and formerly Minzy. The group was formed by YG Entertainment in 2009.

2NE1 are absolute QUEENS! I respect them so much as artists and although their disbanding in 2016 pained me a lot, I have to say that their charm, style and uniqueness is what made me listen to girl groups in the first place!

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 3 labels at the same time- amongst others " Music Group"? Besides 2NE1 showed us a fresh and freaky way of style. They even have a own line of adidas. Gotta love them!

5 Super Junior Super 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 have gone through so much and they are still one group. They are funny, cute, talented and truly care about their fans. They are and will always be my favorite group ever.

Super Junior is the best group in the world. They're the reason I like K-pop. Each member is very talented with cute personalities. Love their music.

They change my life to the best. I can not live without super junior. I loved them I still and always will. I will be stand and support them forever.

Super Junior is absolutely amazing! From their songs, to their love for their fans. Watching them together on variety makes me laugh every time! SJ and ELF is family.


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!

TVXQ are truly amazing artists, who stay at the top of kpop wave for years. The music they make is constantly changing because they are not affraid to try new things, their lyrics are meaningful, trying to reach the listeners and giving the message. Their performances are simply splendid, Perfection.
We will always be by your side, because We Are T :D

Greetings from Slovakia

When I saw there Mirotic MV, I was like "wooow! I like their outfit ah, abs of Jeojoong are perfect (haha kidding).. I love them ah, they deserve to be called "king of Kpop" since they were early to be exposed than other and they are real talented men.

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.

7 SHINee Shinee is a South Korean boy band formed by SM Entertainment in 2008. The group is composed of four members: Onew, Key, Minho, and Taemin. Originally a five-piece group, vocalist Jonghyun died in December 2017.

It is the best and strongest group ever! Their vocals, visuals, choreography, cinematography everything thing is GREAT!
They compose most iconic songs ever! Ring ding dong, Lucifer, SHINee's world, sherlock, hello, everybody etc. Are evergreen songs!
Not only songs but variety shows on which they appear are great too. Like, hello baby.
They definitely deserve more recognition.

SHINee truly are the PRINCES of kpop. Amazing visuals, personality and a lot of talent! These men truly deserve their reputation and so much more!

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...

8 2PM

I once read a fan comment this about 2pm and I totally agree.. "individually talented, definitely awesome as a group"!

2PM deserves more than top9...At first, I don't know about them. But I found them interesting. They're such an adorable, hard worker, and too many reasons why I admire them. Being a music lover, I don't usually admire easily...They caught my attention and now I prove that they're one of a kind. They already convinced my heart. Forever 2PM, FIGHTING...사랑�'...

Forever 2pm...2pm is the best...2pm is the beastly idols forever.. Not only their appearances, but also their talent, adorable manners, gentlemen, sexy, cute, hot, greatest abs and...

Hottest is The Legend... No one can beat

9 T-ara

The strongest girl group of all time! They have the best songs and I will always be a Queen's!

My strongest girl group.

They are still the best.

They are the best! The sexiest and cutietiest and also the amazing of all time. Oh T-ara. please go to no. 1

10 EXO Exo 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 kpop group with amazing vocals visuals and the most kindest and humblest members. They have the best concepts of their MVs . They officially debuted in 2012 but still they are ruling over in the music industry. They have been through a lot in these years including loss of 3 members one member is inactive because of korea china conflicts but still they are strong they are charting over every where. EXO is a definition of perfection , talent. Every single member shines in their own way. Their vocals are god damn amazing .

I believe that EXO are amazing and talented artists. It's sad that some members left although I do understand their reasons and respect their decision.
Their songs are BOPS (for me at least) and I can still listen to their old songs without getting bored!

EXO brought me to Kpop. And EXO broke records in Kpop history. Not being bias but EXO has the best vocals. Plus they are one of the strongest idol, after losing some members they are still slaying. They've been through a lot. Maybe they're not as famous as they are back then (that's because promotion sucks) but they made history (not their song tho). And I actually fell in love with each member for slaying as a solo. I love them. And they love EXO-L so much too.

They have one of the best discography in K-pop. Vocals and Dance on point! They really didn't disappoint me. I love every members, they are so thoughtful, humble and hardworking. Stan a group who has total package, that's exo for you.

The Contenders
11 BTS/Bangtan Boys BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy band formed in Seoul in 2013. RM is the leader and the other members are V, Jimin, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, and Jungkook

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...

BTS should be at least top 15 because 1. They are the ONLY KPop group to have won the BBMAs, 2. They have different types of concepts (school crush, hip hop, I Need U), 3. They have had theories made out of a series of their MVs, and 4. They have more AUTHENTIC personalities than at least 90% idols and also are really good looking.

They suffered a lot since their debut. they cried yet hid those tears from armies. they wrote songs to help overcome many issues their fans and other people deal with. They produce and compose most of their songs. they also contribute in the choreography for most songs. They give such beautiful and meaningful speeches. They try to interact with their fans as much as possible and give them advise to help them overcome the problems they are struggling with. They all have their own likes and dislikes, unique personalities and talents. They are extremely hardworking. They are creative, lovable and fresh/new. And top of all tat they are crackheads. They know how to entertain people and make people laugh. They are not afraid to show who they really are. They are just born performers. They are themselves even when on camera or award shows, the ''pokemon gang''. They are strong and confident and don't let criticism brihg them down. Infact they deal with criticism in the best possible way, ...more

12 F(x)

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.

They have really interesting and unique music and probably the most popular group in China! They also have a lot lf popularity in the states as the performed at SXSW the first kpop group to perform at a major music festival!

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

Fx has a unique style than other.
Fx like a mixed bowl, all the member came. From other country.
Krystal and amber came from USA, Victoria from china, and sulli, Luna from korea

13 JYJ

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?

They sing so damn well, eh, nope, they sing so damn BEST compared to other idol groups!
2 members (J&J) in this group is unarguably one of the BEST SINGERS that ASIA ever HAD! All members (not just one, ALL! ) can write a song (not just the lyrics, but composing! ). And one other facts, they're better heard in LIVE than recorded, that's why they should be permitted to go on a television show As Soon As POSSIBLE!

Jyj has three talented members. I'm not a big fan of them, but when I saw their news on the internet I always have the urge to look at them. Jyj is considered as one of the best k-pop group.

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

14 4Minute 4Minute is a five-member South Korean girl group formed in 2009 by Cube Entertainment with music singles and albums released primarily in South Korea and Japan.

4Minute for me are SO AMAZING! I still listen to Crazy and Hate without ever getting bored! Those women are so talented and beautiful! I feel so alive when I listen to thme!

The sexiness and flow, cool upbeat songs, WHO tell me, WHO mean hate 4minute?!

I don't't know why I liked them so much! I think they were just great!

4minute Have many great talents even though it may not be shown much to the public.

Leader Nam Jihyun has many talents. She may not be a great singer but she is good at rapping, acting and dancing.

Main Vocalist Heo Gayoon is a really great singer. Cube doesn't show her talents much but she can hit high and low notes perfectly.

Lead Dancer, Vocalist and Rapper Jeon Jiyoon is probably the most talented member. In my opinion, her vocals are better than Gayoon's, she has the same rapping skill as Hyuna, maybe even more charismatic than her. She is also a very good dancer, second to Hyuna's along with Jihyun and Sohyun. She has a nicely built body and is a very actor. She also has the best and most cute aegyo in the group. It also made Infinite's leader, fall for her.

Main Dancer and rapper Kim Hyuna has many great talents but isn't the most talented out of the five. She is a good, fast rapper and a non -stop dancing machine, but her vocals are the second worst ...more

15 Sistar

They have very sweet and sexy songs. All of them are so talented and have such great bodies. Hyorin is an amazing singer and has great vocals. Bora is a great rapper and singer. Dasom is so cute and looks so innocent. Soyu has a great face; she looks so pretty.

They're so kindhearted and down to earth along with their fantastic voices, dance moves, and healthy bodies. Each of them are a total inspiration!

Just... their songs are very catchy and just pleasant to ears when they sing! I love sistar


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.

17 Wonder Girls Wonder Girls was a South Korean girl group formed by JYP Entertainment. The group's final line-up consisted of Yubin, Yeeun, Sunmi and Hyerim. Members Sunye and Sohee officially left the group in 2015, while Hyuna left in late 2007.

I LOVE WONDER GIRLS! The way they all have their own unique personality, and talents. To me their the most girl group when it comes to singing and dancing because their all so well rounded and can do well at anything. Their individual personalities are what made me love them so much and they are so funny!

They will always be my favorite which created a huge impact around the world even though they have been outside korea for a long time.

18 Seventeen Seventeen, also stylized as SEVENTEEN or SVT, is a South Korean boy group formed by Pledis Entertainment in 2015. The group consists of thirteen members divided into three sub-units, each with a different area of specialization: a 'Hip-Hop Unit', 'Vocal Unit', and 'Performance Unit'.

SEVENTEEN's choreography made me fell in love with them. The synchronization is REAL! Imagine having so may members, but they are still synchronized. SEVENTEEN should be somewhere in top 10. They have the greatest choreography. They deserve every award. I love them.

I just love Seventeen. They make such awesome music videos. And I like Jeonghan's hair that is the same as Kuruko Basketball's Murusakibara. Vernon is so handsome :). I prefer Jun for long-haired.


Their music is great. Unique. Dark and powerful. They are talented, their voices are powerful and sweet at the same time. Their damce skills are on point. You'll never get disappointed with their comebacks.

Leo, N, Navi, Hongbin, Hyuk, Ken are all members of this
South Korean boy band, signed under Jellyfish Entertainment.

20 2AM
21 U Kiss
22 BtoB
23 Boyfriend
24 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 the most entertaining group ever existed. They are good in variety shows and their performance are very powerful. Each member has their own flaws but those flaws make each of them even more beautiful idols in all history of Kpop.

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.


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

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 MVs, 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

I love them whenever they made live performance. It is the B2ST. Plus,their fans are the best fandom I have ever met

B2st is the best
