Top 10 Best K-Pop Groups of All Time

K-pop has taken the world by storm over the past few years, with its catchy beats, captivating choreography, and stunning visuals. With its unique blend of Korean and Western pop music, K-pop has created a global phenomenon that has swept through countries and cultures. While there are countless K-pop groups out there, some have managed to stand out from the rest and make a lasting impact on the industry.

In this list, you've taken a deep dive into the world of K-pop and helped us create a difinitive list the top 10 K-pop groups of all time.

These groups have not only produced hit after hit but have also influenced the industry and inspired countless other artists. From their innovative music videos to their jaw-dropping live performances, these groups have set the bar high for what it means to be a K-pop idol.

It's worth noting that K-pop groups are more than just musical acts; they're also cultural ambassadors that represent Korea to the world. They embody the country's values, traditions, and aesthetics, and their popularity has played a significant role in promoting Korean culture globally.
The Top Ten
1 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.

I love Super Junior (SUJU) from the deepest part of my heart. They truly care about their fans. SUJU and ELF are family. No one can tear us apart. We will be together forever. I don't care about what people say or the bad things they say about SUJU. I love them wholeheartedly. Because of SUJU, my life has become more meaningful. They make us smile, laugh, and bring us pleasure. No matter how difficult the situation is, we always face it together. When they smile, we will smile. When they cry, we will cry with them. I will never betray SUJU or ELF. I love SUJU.

Super Junior is simply amazing! They really are the kings of K-pop. The many hardships, fights, and arguments they went through and endured, and the many times they made up are simply amazing. They do not disappoint the fans at all. They really are considered one, that is why Super Junior is Superman and not Supermen because they consider themselves one. Their music is amazing, especially many of the songs within their album, their own compositions, acting, voices, drama, variety, and looks are all truly amazing. Most importantly, they treat their fans with utmost care. They are one of the only K-pop groups that truly pay 110% attention to their fans, ELFs. This is why I love Super Junior.

Super Junior are not the best singers, but they are close to most fans. They care about the fans. They do not care about their image; they only make the fans happy and smile. Not only that, they taught me how to care for others. They are not idols. With our ELF, they are friends, relatives, or the first to demolish the barrier between fan and idol. They care about us when we stand in the rain waiting for them. They are concerned about our safety when their show takes place. How many idols can do that? Until finally, out of love for my family, I would never trade love for SJ for anything valuable in life.

The first K-pop group that I really loved was SuJu, but before that, I already knew about DBSK and SHINee. It was really difficult to memorize all 15 guys, but because of my deep interest, it was a bit easy for me to memorize them all. For me, my life began when I knew about them. 15 boys that turned my life into a fantasy-like. They've really inspired me a lot, especially with hard work and passion for one's interest. Even though two members (Hankyung and Heechul) decided to pursue their dreams individually, for me, they're still part of fifteen amazing guys that I knew. I will never call them as an individual artist, but they still have my support in whatever they are doing now. In short, SuJu doesn't only make us love them, but they also make us believe that miracles are not impossible to happen.

2 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.

Big Bang in my opinion is the best kpop boy band. They all are stars in their own way and they just stick out from other groups. They make good music and has international feeling. I'm also a fan of other groups like BTS or EXO; these guys have talent and their own way of making music that made them really popular lately but their not in the Big Bang level. Sure Big Bang started out first but it's been 10 years since they deputed (it's 2016 right now and they debuted in 2006) not a lot of groups can stay together for that long. I don't like Exo Because they keep losing members and if they didn't have their dancing; they wouldn't have gained that much popularity since there known for their amazing dancing. BTS is good overall but Big Bang is a little higher. Sorry I didn't mention any other groups like TVXQ, Super Junior, or SHINEE, I just don't enjoy their music as I do for the three groups I mentioned earlier. I don't know if this is the end for Big Bang since the members are gonna ...more

First of all, I have to congratulate Big Bang. I have been listening to them since 2009/2010. In a couple of months, I caught up with their previous albums and activities, as well as their training days - in other words, pre-debut. I saw the struggle, and it was real.

What I really like about Big Bang is their uniqueness. When I listen to other Korean pop groups' songs, they sound the same: similar beats, similar vibes, songs written by other people. They don't have a real story to share, so they don't connect with me musically.

But when I listen to Big Bang, I think, "Yup, I love it. This is my sound." I enjoy the beat, the lyrics, and the songs that have a story in them, like "Haru Haru" or "Lies."

I am not a V.I.P.. I am just a person who enjoys listening to Big Bang.

That's all, thank you for reading.

They are the most unique in the K-pop world because of the personalities they bring on stage and their willingness to express themselves, despite the overflowing criticism that they and every other idol face. Each member contributes to their success and has their own unique quality that allows this band to be the best. It's not only about looks and talent. Each character's personality complements their top rankings. Every fan of Big Bang would agree that they are the best.

This group has a different style from any other band, due to their desire to be different. They are not held under their company's thumb, and they write their own songs and melodies that are top-selling all around the world. Big Bang is definitely the top group out there.

They are totally unique, and they always have something new to bring to the table. I love their amazing personalities, and they are as good in singles as they are together. The group is really made up of the most talented people.

3 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.

This rookie group has some truly amazing and talented young men. They can sing and dance exceptionally well. They captured my attention immediately when I accidentally clicked on one of their songs on YouTube. Although they haven't officially debuted yet, they are currently my favorite K-pop group.

EXO is the best! They were the best rookie band of the year and they are my favorite band ever. Their songs and dance moves are incredible. EXO is divided into two sub-groups: EXO-K (Korean) and EXO-M (Chinese). Despite this division, they still function as one group, and I like both sub-groups equally. I apologize for my poor English.

EXO, fighting! They are my favorite boy band, no matter what. They are simply amazing. I love their music and dance moves. They are so cool. Additionally, they are incredibly cute and handsome. They possess both talent and looks, and I'm a big fan. At first, when I listened to "Wolf," I didn't know what to think. However, after hearing it several times, I started to love it. They caught my attention and now my room is filled with EXO posters. I even have EXO hoodies and a phone cover. They are so cute and charming. I hope to see them in person soon. *sigh* I apologize if my English isn't great. It's not my first language.

EXO is the best. They show unity between two worlds. They claim their band is the best, and I have to agree - sorry, no hard feelings. The EXO team puts more effort into all their songs and music videos. Every time they release something, they translate it into either Korean or Mandarin. I have a classmate who is also an EXO fanatic, and they are fond of anime. Initially, I thought EXO was an anime. That misconception lasted until our teacher asked us who EXO's youngest member was. "Member?" I questioned myself, until the name Sehun came up. After watching the music video for "Mama," I became an instant fan. I searched for all the music videos I could find, and EXO was really the best. SHINee almost beat them, but not quite. Sorry to anyone who disagrees. This is just my opinion.

4 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.

SHINee is a group that will get you laughing if you're having a bad day. They all have many individual talents, and when they combine them, it's just amazing. Each character - Onew, Minho, Jonghyun, Taemin, and Key - has inspired me in some way. Their songs are also amazing. Lucifer was the first song I watched from them, and they were the first K-pop group I knew when I started watching K-pop. I also recommend watching SHINee's Hello, as it just cheers me up.

They have been through so much together and have literally grown up together. I will continue to support them. P.S. Give them lots of love and SHINee, FIGHTING!

There's a reason why SHINee is considered DBSK 2.0. Their voices while singing are near perfect. They possess the skill and attitude that DBSK had. Jonghyun's voice has a wonderful range. He can go high or low, adapting as the song requires. Not many people can do that.

Minho excels in rapping and singing, which is remarkable considering he didn't come from a rapping background like some others. Onew's voice is perfect for ballads, offering a soothing tone that many people love.

Key's rapping skills are on par with Minho's, and he is equally capable of singing. When he does sing, his voice is as beautiful as anyone else's. When it comes to dancing, however, watch out: his moves and his flair can be mesmerizing. He brings his diva side into his dancing, which, in my opinion, only enhances his performances.

Taemin is THE dancer of the group. He himself has said that he can't stop dancing. His heart and passion are evident in every move he makes. While his voice is ...more

Every member of SHINee is highly talented and has their own unique qualities. They all know how to sing. Well, Minho is a bit weaker than the other members in this regard, but I still think he sings really well as a strong rapper. They also dance exceptionally well. Despite their individual talents, their teamwork elevates them to another level when they come together as SHINee. Each member - Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho, and Taemin - somehow displays their own characteristics within the group, yet everything fits together perfectly. They do a lot of live singing, and their voices are incredibly strong and captivating, even while performing difficult but amazing group dances. They are also funny, smart, and good-looking. In my opinion, they are one of the most talented idol groups in K-pop history, and they truly deserve the name SHINee, the people who shine.

SHINee is amazing. They are talented singers and dancers. Their performances are always perfect, with their great live singing and intense choreography. Each member has a unique place in the group and stands out individually. Our leader, Onew, has a sweet and melodious voice. Jonghyun has one of the best voices in K-pop. His singing is fantastic. Key is super talented since he can sing, rap, and dance amazingly. Charismatic Minho is a great rapper, and finally, our maknae, Taemin, is a dancing machine and a wonderful singer who has improved so much since his debut. I love SHINee so much, and for me, they are the best K-pop group. They are cute, funny, and very hardworking.

5 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.

These girls are the reason I fell in love with K-pop in the first place. I like how they pull off different images, especially how they've managed to have so many hit songs based on different concepts. They are also an all-rounded group, showcasing some of the best idol singers and dancers in the K-pop industry. They don't act fake on shows, which is another thing I like, as they don't try to create a fake image to gain fans. I am proud to call myself a Sone, and I hope people realize how much popularity they have brought to K-pop internationally. I will continue supporting them - SNSD Fighting!

I love these girls! They were my first taste of K-pop! I can't say I have a favorite member, but I would have to say I absolutely love Hyoyeon. Her raps and dancing are so amazing and fill me with so much energy. I love all of SNSD's songs. They are absolutely inspirational. SNSD fighting!

SNSD has a lot of awesome songs. Maybe you only pay attention to their title tracks, but they have ballad songs too. The number one reason why I love SNSD is that many K-pop groups have broken up and lost members. SNSD, on the other hand, has faced many hardships and challenges, more than any other K-pop group, but despite all this, they are still together. They are performing and reaching their goals together. We don't see them as perfect girls, but as hardworking, dorky, and kindhearted ladies who make mistakes. These are the ladies who have dedicated their lives to fulfilling their goals and bringing joy to people through their music. We love them for who they are.

These girls are the reason I fell in love with K-pop in the first place. I like how they pull off different images, especially how they've managed to have so many hit songs based on different concepts. They are also an all-rounded group, showcasing some of the best idol singers and dancers in the K-pop industry. They don't act fake on shows, which is another thing I like. They don't try to create a fake image to gain fans. I am proud to call myself a Sone, and I hope people realize how much popularity they've brought to K-pop internationally and continue supporting them. SNSD fighting!

6 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

BTS was the band that got me into K-pop, and Jimin has always stood out to me. If I could go to one of their concerts, my life would be complete. My dream is to go to one of their concerts or meet them. I know it's probably not going to happen, but it's a dream of mine!

They are highly active, releasing albums, mini albums, special merchandise, and participating in shows like Rookie King and American Hustle Life. They also offer rare/limited merchandise, have BangtanTV, are active on Twitter, give intro performances, and release Japanese albums, among other things. They are multi-talented, with the involvement of all members, great vocals, great raps, great dancing - great everything. They are also involved in lyric production.

Overall, they're at the top. They are some of the most influential people in my life and have a major impact on everyone around them. They constantly remind us to follow our dreams. Don't abide by the standards of others. Set your own goals in life. Be proud of who you are and what you can do. Acknowledge what you cannot do and work to improve. Be true. Be you.

I love many groups, but BTS will always be my number one. I think I'm speaking for all of ARMY when I say they have brought me so much joy and inspiration. I will love and support these seven normal boys from Korea until the day I die.

They have so many songs in a variety of styles. Are you happy? Listen to Dynamite. Are you sad? Listen to The Truth Untold. Are you angry at a hater? Mic Drop. Crushing? Boy in Luv.

They have a song for every bit of my life, which has been so much better thanks to them!

In my opinion, they are by far the best K-pop group, and I've listened to all the other groups on the list. The meaningful lyrics they write and the amount of input they have in producing and writing their songs set them apart. They put the most energy into their performances, and I've never seen any other group dance like they do.

I have so much love for this group, and they deserve all the recognition they are getting at the moment. They really stand out in this genre, and they are extremely brave for singing and rapping about controversial topics. Coming from a small company and climbing to the top like they have proves that they rely on no one and stay true to their music.

7 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.

I like that they have a different style. They excel in rock and R&B and are really good rappers. I also like how it's so hard to choose your bias. I mean, really, how can you? CL is an amazing leader, and she can rap exceptionally well. Bom is a great singer and beautiful. Dara is gorgeous and has a good personality, and then Minzy is a dancing machine. I love these girls.

I like SNSD too, but some of the girls annoy me. They are sometimes so stuck-up, whereas 2NE1 are natural and don't act fake. I dislike half of SNSD!

2NE1 is a very talented group, not just in singing and dancing but in other skills as well. They give their all when they perform. Even before their debut, this group was very well-known, and they continue to be so. Unlike other groups who attend variety shows to promote themselves, 2NE1 doesn't need to. Their songs' lyrics show lots of personality, and the choreography is amazing! I would love to see more of them!

Perhaps the most impressive K-pop girl group there is, 2NE1 doesn't bank on their looks or aegyo like other K-pop girl groups do. They are fierce and have totally changed the game for girl groups in South Korea. Crowned as the Best New Band by MTV Iggy in 2011, they were the representative speakers of K-pop at the Cannes International Festival. Having worked with and recognized by fashion mavens around the world, including renowned designer Jeremy Scott, 2NE1 delivers amazing and edgy music like no other K-pop girl group.

2NE1 is unique. This group is the one that introduced me to K-pop. They can nail every concept, from reggae to hip-hop. 2NE1 knows how to be sexy without being cheap, unlike some other girl groups with their low-quality pornographic elements.

They (2NE1) are just themselves, and their songs are meaningful, emotional, or simply reflect our lifestyle - that's why I love them. Unlike other girly K-pop songs (I don't dislike them or anything, but some songs are just really annoying), where they basically talk about how beautiful or cute they are or where they just try to seduce guys.

8 f(x)

They definitely stand out from the rest... They don't try to show more skin to be better... They represent individuality and really unique songs yet that are also catchy at the same time. All of their songs rock... Not only one of them that stands out... All of them are great. Each member has a beautiful soul and literally has their own sole personalities that I admire so much. Definitely most beautiful, unique and awesome kpop band out there... A proud aff(x)tion right here. Standing true to these amazing girls, you rock!

All of the members are beautiful, as all of them were in the top 15 most beautiful K-POP members in other surveys. Sulli is the prettiest among the members, followed by Krystal, then Victoria, Amber, and Luna. Three members are in the top ten: Sulli, Krystal, and Victoria. Each one of them is unique and could actually pursue an individual career, since each one of them is popular for their respective talent and charisma.

Oh, come on, their dance and music style is really unique. Why are they so overshadowed by SNSD? Plus, Luna's amazing vocal. I hope Sulli tries harder on dancing and singing so she's not useless. I hate her cute expression while dancing when F(x) should have fierce expressions that fit their dance style. There's nothing special with her voice. It's just smooth. Is there a K-POP dancer who can perform various types of dance like Victoria?

F(x) is special. In a world filled with bright, bubbly, and blindly feminine girl groups and female K-POP artists who produce masses of nauseatingly similar, conformist music, F(x) serves as a cool, levelheaded alternative. The group has five distinct, varied members, each with their own special talents and wonderful character. F(x) has made its unique style clear and has continued with that style since its debut in 2009, maturing with each new song without deviating from their singular themes.

Each member plays an integral part in each piece: Luna with her beautiful voice, Amber as the rapper, Sulli as the adorable visual and sub-rapper, Victoria as the lead dancer, and Krystal as the maknae. In real life, the girls are wonderful. They're so close, they're like a family, and they clearly love each other just as much as they love their fans. I used to not like K-POP, but now, thanks to F(x), I am a K-POP fan. F(x) is, and will always be, my group.

Saranghae F(x)! ...more

9 Red Velvet

I love Red Velvet a lot! My favorite members are:

1. Wendy, who has very unique vocals and hits a high-pitch part in every MV.
2. Seulgi, I didn't like 28 Reasons, but I love her vocals in every other song.
3. Yeri, for most people she is their 5th favorite, but I really think she deserves better.
4. Joy, she reminds me of ChickenJoy. She loves chicken, and she is named Joy.
5. Irene, I don't really know much about her.

Yes! I was really hoping Red Velvet would be on this list. They are the best K-pop group ever, in my opinion. Seulgi and Wendy have the best vocals, and Irene is great at rapping. Joy and Yeri are the best dancers too! They still adhere to the 2010's weird-core concept. It's very hard to find that in K-pop now.

Red Velvet is the best!

Wendy, our main vocal, will someday dominate the music charts with her soulful singing.

Seulgi will be known for her dancing and singing skills all around K-pop.

Irene will star in the latest dramas. Her face will blow you away.

Joy will be leading the next generation's maknaes. She's very talented!

Red Velvet is clearly very talented!

Red Velvet should be number 1. It's just 2NE1 and SNSD that get a lot of attention. They are good, but Red Velvet is better because their songs are relatable and have better vocals.

10 NU'EST NU'EST is a South Korean boy group formed by Pledis Entertainment consisting of JR, Aron, Baekho, Ren, and Minhyun.

I fell in love with K-pop the first time I ever saw this band! They really are the absolute best, and I wish others could see that as well. They aren't afraid to take chances with their music, and, to me, none of their songs sound exactly alike. Too many artists find success with their first chart-topping song, so they keep making the same kind of song over and over again. NU'EST doesn't do this, which elevates them much higher in my esteem. So, keep going, NU'EST. You really are AWESOME!

I just love them! Every one of their songs is a track that I really enjoy. When I'm listening to their albums, I don't skip any songs. I also love how close they are to each other. They don't seem so idol-like. We fans can really relate to them. Some bigger artists feel distant, but NU'EST feels like they are right next to you. They have this family-like feel to them, which I love. NU'EST is not just a K-pop band. They are a family!

I absolutely love them! I think Aron is so cool, JR's rapping is awesome, and Baekho has an amazing voice. I also like Minhyun, but Ren is my favorite. He can dance, sing, and he is GORGEOUS! I love FACE and Sleep Talking. I even practice the dances to their music videos. I just love them to bits and can't stop listening to their songs. But Ren... I'm fangirling over the thought! They are awesome. I love them and hope they continue to make brilliant songs while maintaining their shockingly good looks.

NU'EST is the best. NU'EST is number 1♥. We are L.O./.E, and we love NU'EST. NU'EST fighting! I accidentally opened iTV (the number one K-pop music channel in Vietnam) and saw "Face" by NU'EST. It's amazing! From the dancing to the song, their music and style are so incredible. I've never been so impressed. I've never been interested in any one K-pop group before. I immediately looked for information about NU'EST on the Internet. NU'EST is wonderful.

What impressed me most was Ren. While watching the music video "Face," I was wondering, "It's weird. Does this K-pop group have a single female member?" Now I think it's so funny. Ren possesses great beauty, which is why I was attracted. I hope NU'EST will come to Vietnam! We will always support NU'EST everywhere! NU'EST fighting!

The Contenders
11 GOT7 Got7 is a South Korean boy band formed by JYP Entertainment. The group is composed of seven members: JB, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam, and Yugyeom.

I believe that GOT7 should be in the top 10, not the top 50! The guys in this group are very talented and have very catchy songs. Their videos have reached a high number of views, and of course, they have international fans.

The reason they have international fans is because they have talent and great songs. Sometimes fans go for looks, but these guys have the whole package. They know how to dance, sing, rap, and get along. They also know how to attract fans with their funny or cute actions. So, that's just my belief, and I hope others agree with me.

I think, regardless of their looks, which are very appealing, they are very talented and hardworking as well! They definitely deserve to be higher up on the list, as they work harder than a lot of these bands combined. I really appreciate the messages in their songs as well, and I believe that they should collaborate with BTS more because they are already friends and are both splendid.

Their songs are very catchy, and they have improved so much since their debut, even though they are still relatively new. Got7, fighting!

They should be in the top 10! GOT7 is the best! They're mixed-race. They're not all Korean! They are also very talented and cute. Each one is special with an awesome talent. I am so shocked at this ranking! Love them! GOT7, fighting!

What are they doing so low down on the list? Their music and dancing are amazing, and they have adorable personalities. I love each and every one of them. Their bond is so real. Fight your way up, guys. I will support you.

12 Infinite

Whether you like them for their music, dancing, variety, acting, or everything about them overall, Infinite is a solid Korean group full of strengths. They've been active for quite a number of years now and are still going strong, thanks to their loyal fanbase and the strong bonds between the members. To me, their music is unique and always enjoyable. Their songs follow a different sound than what is mainstream now, and I really enjoy how different that sound is.

Infinite has done a great job being consistent with that sound. Their concerts and performances will always satisfy, and it's great how they pride themselves so much on giving a great performance to their fans. They have their own passions and pursue them as well. Infinite's fan service and genuine love for their fans are also very apparent and strong. Every two years since their debut, they've been hosting their That Summer Concerts and INFINITE Rallies to spend time with their fans. Each year, their appreciation and ...more

INFINITE members all have different talents. Woohyun has powerful vocals and knows how to control them. Sunggyu has a great voice. Both Dongwoo and Hoya can rap, sing, and dance - and they do all three amazingly. Sungyeol has a good voice, although he's not given that many lines. Myungsoo has a unique voice that'll melt you. Sungjong has a good voice and can probably dance to girl group dances better than you can.

As a group, they're super-duper-mega-ultra-amazing. They also have great personalities that will make you fall for them even more.

I do not know Korean music before, and do not know any idol. When I first heard the Infinite song and Woohyun's voice, I immediately decided that this was good music and beautiful sound. Until now I've never listened to other boygroup music, I think it's not necessary for me. Because I've been listening to the best boygroup music ever, yes they're Infinite. I spend time searching and listening to their songs, I'm getting addicted. I'm not making it up, their songs are actually songs and have a regular rhythm and are enjoyed with certainty. I'm not a person who can compare this and that, I enjoy it and I love it, and I've found the best kpop music is in Infinite. Their vocals and dances are unquestionable, and I'm not wrong choosing idols. Their personality is very realistic, complete, and sincere. I'm proud to be Inspirit, because I'm proud of Infinite. They really work hard, love each other and support, and most importantly they are seven nice men who love peace. As Infinite, that's ...more

Their music is awesome and unique! You'll never find another K-pop group with such a style of music. Singing along, as well as dancing to their songs, requires so much skill. I believe Infinite deserves much more credit for their actions. They work hard for us Inspirits, putting up with all the stress and struggles, but remain optimistic and brighter than any other K-pop group I've ever seen.

I hope people will take more notice of Infinite. I've been fans of SHINee, BigBang, SuJu, SS501, Beast, B1A4, Boyfriend, EXO, TVXQ - you name it! But Infinite will always, always be my favorite. I love each of them so much and hope for the best for them. INFINITE, INSPIRIT FOREVER!

13 TVXQ TVXQ, also known as Dong Bang Shin Ki, is a South Korean pop duo that originally debuted as a five-member group in 2003. They are one of the leading figures in the Hallyu wave and have immense popularity both domestically and internationally. TVXQ's musical style is diverse, spanning genres like pop, R&B, and electronic dance music. They have broken several sales records and received numerous awards, solidifying their status as icons in the industry.

DBSK is the BEST! They should be #1. Sure, other groups might sometimes bring some stiff competition, but DBSK can never lose, and they WILL NEVER lose! They work so hard, and sing so well, how can any other team compare?! They are the best KPOP Boy Band I've ever known. And I too have other boy bands that I like, but they seriously are NO MATCH compared to DBSK (TVXQ, Tohoshinki, JYJ, etc. ) because DBSK is Authentic, You can't find another group like them again! Even other groups try to be like them (No offense) Creativity, Looks, Voice, They have 'em ALL! They always keep the faith, they really do. When they cry, our hearts hurt. Seeing them split up makes me wanna cry! The 5 of them were so Great! Hopefully, one day they can reunite, together as one again. As a DBSK & JYJ-Lover, I can never stand to see them apart. Kim Jaejoong, you-know Yunho, Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun, Max Changmin, they belong together! Because, when they combine, their music is INCOMPARABLE! No other band ...more

Best K-pop boy band that ever existed. Trust me, I know a LOT of K-pop bands, but they are incredible. Just so talented. Have you seen Yunho dance? He's Asia's dance machine. They are the group that tries their absolute best.

They initiated K-pop in Japan by singing on the streets and stairs. Changmin couldn't dance at all at first. He practiced alone at midnight without anyone knowing. They practice singing while running on treadmills to improve their live performances. Look at their choreography. It's amazing and seriously hard. They don't even pant a lot when they sing while dancing.

Idol groups usually don't last that long, but they debuted in 2003. Yunho's family members didn't want him to be a singer, so he took part-time jobs and gave it his best effort. They all started from the bottom, and now they're stars in the sky.

Best and #1 in my heart, I love them. No other groups can replace them in my heart. They are the best boy band ever. It's not just their looks. Their presence and voice add up to perfection. Each and every member is talented and has their own personalities. They are unforgettable.

They are the only group that can sing while dancing and still sound good - better than the studio version, in fact. Cassiopeia will always be with you guys, supporting you forever. Even with all the new groups that are debuting nowadays, you'll still shine the brightest among them all. They simply cannot be compared. Always Keep The Faith.

TVXQ is the best in terms of looks, talent, the whole package - basically everything. TVXQ debuted when technology wasn't so advanced, and they still performed incredibly well! They literally paved the way for the groups that followed them, like Super Junior, SHINee, and EXO. Without TVXQ - and Super Junior and SHINee, especially paving the way in Japan - EXO probably wouldn't even be able to perform there.

Plus, they harmonize so well. Each member has a role. There are no useless members, no offense to some other groups. They were legendary when they were a group of five and still are. They will be legendary forever.

14 SS501

I love SS501 and always will. They were the band that actually got me to fall in love with K-pop. I have not found one song by them that I don't like, which is more than I can say for other bands. I do like other bands like Super Junior, Big Bang, 2NE1, Shinee, etc. But SS501 will always be #1 in my heart.

I think if they were to come back now, once Kyu Jong returns from the army, they would be at the top of the list. I am sad that they are not in the top 10, where they should be, but the fact that they are in the top 20 proves to me that Triple S fans have not given up or forgotten them. They have proven how caring and talented they are. I think they are one of the closest groups I know. They will always be in our hearts and will never be forgotten, as long as people like Triple S exist!

SS501 is everything a group should be. They have great vocals with a balanced blend of tones and wide diversity. These guys are wonderful to their fans and always try to involve them in all their performances. They have also shown how down-to-earth and kind-hearted they are by being involved in charity work, which I admire most about them. Whether as a group or as individual singers, they have proven time and again that they are powerful forces in K-Pop. SS501 is an all-around world-class group.

I like everything about their performance. They deliver the songs so well, even if I don't understand the meaning. I still feel the message. Best of all is their brotherly and friendly relationship, always supporting each other. They are very entertaining and humble.

It's fun to watch the playfulness of Park Jung Min and his smile. I love the sweet and high pitch of Hoe Young Saeng. Kyu Jong has an angelic face and smile. Kim Hyung Jun and Kim Hyun Joong are both adorable and lovely. All of them have amazing and great voices.

The credit, of course, goes to the leader, Kim Hyun Joong - he is the hub of the group. I only came to know them when they were no longer together, but I support what they are doing now. They also need to have individual identities, but like a family, they are still SS501 - forever.

SS501, for me, is not your ordinary boy group. They have the talent and charisma, bring great music, and have real dedication when it comes to their fans. I regret only knowing them now, but after watching all their past TV guest appearances and performances, I feel like I've been a Triple S since their debut. I'll support them even though they are engaged in individual activities right now. But I really hope that they will come back again as one. I'll wait, along with all the other Triple S fans!

15 CN Blue

I love CNBLUE! They faced heavy criticism when they first debuted, but they pulled through it together as a group. The members are extremely talented, not only in singing and playing instruments, but also in acting. What I enjoy most about the group is the music they create. I love the fact that almost all their songs are self-composed and written. Jonghyun's voice melts my heart, while Yonghwa's voice is catchy and perfect for their rock sound. All four members have distinct looks and personalities, but if you watch their interviews, you can tell they really care about each other. I believe CNBlue will be together for a very long time to come.

Jung Yong Hwa is an incredibly talented singer, musician, and composer. He is a lead vocalist who exudes charisma, exactly what is needed in a front man of a band. CNBLUE is a force to be reckoned with once Koreans stop stereotyping and accept that these good-looking people are also good musicians. They are young but have already accomplished a lot. Just go to one of their live stages and you will be convinced immediately. Their fandom is interesting, consisting not just of crazy teenagers but also of those who truly appreciate their music. They are like the hidden card of K-pop, ready to emerge once fans get bored with overused, repetitive concepts and start appreciating real talent.

I love them because they behave like the way all entertainer should. On variety show they are really funny, humble, and respond to everything naturally, not too much, so it's lovely to see. On stage they are very energetic and full of passion. I can't find a reason to not liking them, they have their own charm. YongHwa is the leader, he is the soul of the band, accompanied by the funniest JungShin. JongHyun is cool and manly, and MinHyuk is the cutest of all (he's my favorite because of his awkwardness). I love the ambience they create and the way they talk & joke around with each other. I wish I can always see them and their great bonding. CNBLUE, FIGHTING!

Seriously, I don't know why other groups are considered better than CNBLUE when the title we are discussing is about the "band," not the "group." CNBLUE is surely the best band in South Korea. They have an amazing leader with an awesome voice. The three younger brothers listen and contribute effort and cooperation to their eldest brother, who is also their leader. Their music is amazing, and they are the first band to launch a world tour now. So, I don't think any other "group" can compete with CNBLUE as a "band" in this discussion.


U-KISS has been around for quite some time but were overshadowed by their more famous, popular counterparts - SHINee, 2PM, etc. However, they are a hidden gem among their other glittery music rivals. Their songs have improved greatly over the years, and they only get better. While their early MVs showed that they were still new, they had the charisma and personalities that won over the hearts of many KissMes all over the world. Their upbeat pop tunes show off their slick dance skills, booming beats, and charisma, but their ballads are to die for, showcasing Soohyun and Hoon's vocal abilities. The group's rappers also make it a point to lend their singing voices, making it a beautiful team effort. They impressed me with their songs, which also have great meaning, and I will forever look back on that day when I first stumbled into the world of K-pop with their Japanese single Tick Tack. Forever a KissMe!

U-Kiss is hard-working, probably one of the most hardworking groups in all of K-pop. Not only can they sing, dance, rap, and act, but they can also speak various languages. That's why they are called "Ubiquitous Korean International Super Stars." Their blood, sweat, and tears go into every album they release. They are big internationally but not as big in Korea, unfortunately. I'm a KissMe because I love their personalities and respect their talent and hard work.

For me, U-Kiss is the best, number one because I know all K-pop groups are very hard-working and talented. This group also has these kinds of qualifications for being K-pop idols. However, two things set them apart. First, they're like one big family, treating each other like brothers from the same mother. Second, and most importantly, they have very strong faith and fear in God, our Savior.

U-KISS is the reason why I started to listen to K-pop. Every member is important to me, not just because I like their vocals and songs, but also because I like their personalities. They truly love and support each other and their fans. They are always so energetic and do their best to make their fans happy. Because of U-KISS, I also want to do my best - everywhere and every time.

17 T-ara

I love their style! I love how they act in their music videos and on stage. When they're dancing, they act like they're the best, and I can feel their confidence even from behind a screen. I mean, a lot of groups perform confidently like that, but T-ara does it the best by far. All I can think when I watch them perform is, "THEY'RE SO COOL!"

I think T-ara has the best songs. Everybody's saying they only like "Roly Poly" or "Cry Cry" or "Lovey Dovey," but those are their most popular songs. Some of their best songs are the ones with fewer than a million views or are the ones that are really good. In my opinion, T-ara has the best rappers in Korea. They're all so fast! And they rap with style. It has a nice melody to it, and a lot of female rappers rap without emotion.

Their dances are so cool! Have you seen the dance for "Lovey-Dovey"? All the shuffling, moon-walking, and Running Man moves are amazing.

And T-ara works REALLY hard. They've had like four comebacks in ...more

T-ara has been a sensation. They have shown a lot with their different personalities and abilities. As a group, I believe they have grown to become one of the leading representatives of Korea's music industry.

What makes them special is their ability to change their concept at any time, but they always keep their quality of music at the top. This is why they are referred to by some people as the chameleons of the entertainment industry.

Boram, Soyeon, Qri, Hyomin, Eunjung, Jiyeon, Hwayoung, and the newcomers Ahreum and Dani will surely continue to grab everyone's attention in the future with their synchronized dances and uplifting songs that will be remembered forever by the people.

Queens, and everybody else, will come to see a miracle that is T-ara.

I love their songs and choreography. They are unique and different. They are always beautiful, hardworking, and the best. I will always believe in their ability! T-ara fighting! Queens will always stand beside you!

I love T-ara so much. They are my angels. Jiyeon is my bias and my ultimate bias. I love everything about them: their personalities, their songs, their dances. They were the ones who introduced me to K-pop and are still my favorite band. I still remember when they cried at the Bodakhan concert because QUEEN'S stood by them and supported them. My angels, I love you so much.

18 Blackpink Blackpink is a South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment, consisting of members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa.

Wow! Why isn't them on at least top 10?!? Wha...they actually have the most subscribed kpop channel, the most viewed kpop video for a group and Lisa is the most followed kpop artist on Instagram. EVER. It is weird that they are not on top 5 but that doesn't stop me from loving them. Blackpink is the revolution

They are popular, but in their own way, they are underrated. They don't get enough opportunities to showcase their vocal abilities and talents. I wish YG Entertainment would stop teaching Rose that terrible, straining, voice technique. However, all four girls have amazing voices and release good songs.

I love Blackpink they all pretty and unique beauty. My Bias is Lisa second is jenny, 3rd Rose, 4th is Jisoo. Their song is so unbelievable and hearing over and over. I hope they come out more really good song and Lisa and to dance more different move

They are the best girl group in k-pop, they are the first girl group to be in the charts of billboard, and they are the best girl group in the world.


Whenever I think of BEAST, millions of words run through my head, but one word definitely fits them: perfection. I know that nobody is perfect and that they may not be the best around the world. However, for me and my fellow B2uties, they are the only one. I love how they have strived hard to reach their dreams. I love their passion for music. I love how humble they are when complimented. I love how they continually strive to get better, even when, for me, they are already the best. To put it simply, I love them.

I may not be Korean, and I sometimes wonder what they are singing. But just hearing the sound of their voices, no matter what the song is about, makes me feel happy and calm, and I forget all the problems I have. Thank you, BEAST. Hwaiting!

They can sing and dance to such a variety of songs. They all have distinct voices, always sing live, and can all dance. Sincerely, I don't think they feel pressured to look a certain way. The members seem to voluntarily want to have a specific body type, or they are comfortable with their own. They are incredibly sweet to fans and have worked extremely hard to get to where they are now.

Junhyung writes most of the songs and raps smoothly. Yoseob has a sweet, great voice. Hyunseung has a powerful voice and impressive dance moves. Kikwang also has a distinct voice that fits perfectly in his parts of the songs and is also a great dancer. Doojoon can both sing and rap, and Dongwoon has a unique, powerful voice as well. They are very humble and seem down-to-earth. They don't try to be someone they aren't on camera and are very passionate about what they do.

I like BEAST so much, not only because they look good and stuff like that, etc., but also because they are very hardworking and talented. Each member has a unique personality, and the best part is they don't pretend to be someone they're not. They show their real personality to everyone, whether it's being goofy or emotional at times, or even being childish. That's the cute side of them.

More importantly, they are very kind to their fans. I'm very touched by how much they value and appreciate the support they get from their fans. Although I became a fan just about a month ago, it all started when I watched their MV "Beautiful Night." I was so amazed by their performance, and the song was really nice, so in an instant, I became their fan. Right now, I can say that I am officially a B2UTY, and I am proud to be one. For me, BEAST is the BEST K-pop group ever!

B2ST is the best group to me. There are a lot of groups composed of several members, but only a few of them are talented. This isn't the case with B2ST. All of the six members can dance and sing well. Their songs are beautiful and span different genres: from rocktronic to dance, to ballads. They can do everything. Their choreographies are amazing, catchy, and not banal or ordinary.

Obviously, each member has his own qualities. DooJoon is a great leader, committed, and serious when working, but always funny. He can sing, dance, and rap. HyunSeung sings very well and is a great dancer. JunHyung is the rapper, a great rapper who can also sing and dance. Yoseob's voice is amazing. There's nothing else to say. He is also talented in dancing. Kikwang is a good dancer and singer. DongWoon has a beautiful voice and, like all the members, can dance. They are all intelligent, funny, but at the same time focused on their work.

20 B.A.P

B.A.P is so talented and hardworking! A lot of their songs are not about love. I mean, love is great, but that's all songs are about these days. A lot of idols and celebrities donate money, but B.A.P actually donated money in the name of their fandom (Babys)! Even though they're incredibly sweet, their songs are what make me like them even more. Some of their songs are about standing up for what you believe in and getting up when you fall down. You may think I'm pathetic for standing up for people I don't personally know, but I am pathetic. Haha.

B.A.P is an amazing group! They create such amazing, powerful music that makes you want to dance and also have really sad, meaningful songs that will bring out so much emotion in you. They are a golden group! Daehyun and Youngjae are some of the best singers in the industry, and the group has amazing rappers that you won't find in any other band. Don't forget, they are also really strong dancers. They are obviously one of the best dance groups out there.

I absolutely adore BAP and really respect their passion for music. They offer a variety of songs across different genres, showcasing their versatility as artists. Not only are they highly talented, but a lot of their songs are also composed by them. I love that they have creative freedom and that their songs are always so deep and meaningful. In all aspects, they are truly an amazing group.

BAP has completely altered my "Favorite List". I'm a fan of all kpop groups... After all, kpop changed my life. Since kpop, my life has really shaped up and I can honestly see clearer now. To say that I have an actual "Ultimate Favorite" is something. When BAP entered my life, I was ecstatic. Such a group... I swear! They're so diverse and beyond talented! I was completely entranced by their songs, too. They were strong. You could FEEL the emotion. Not only that, but their voices were amazing. And then I saw them on "TA-DAH! It's BAP! " Haha! & Their personalities were so cute! I couldn't help but fall even more in love with them! Not only do these boys have talent, but they have such pure and warm personalities. That's the other thing: I love how we are able to see all these different sides to BAP. They are a lot of things. And a BABY, I will always support them no matter what. I have the utmost respect for BAP and I hope to one day be able to actually see and talk to them, but I'm ...more

21 Twice Twice is a South Korean girl group formed by JYP Entertainment through the 2015 reality show Sixteen.

My favorite K-pop bands are Blackpink and Twice! I love Twice so, so much, and their song One In A Million is my favorite song by them. I also find them really funny and amazing to their fans and other people. My biases are Jihyo and Sana! Love you, Twice!

"Cheer up, baby! Cheer up, baby!" I love Twice so much. I've almost got down all the choreography of their song "Ohh Ahh." I love that song so much, and Sana is so pretty. She kind of reminds me of Jungkook from BTS! Momo is so good at dancing. I look up to her so much!

What the heck? They should be in the top 10, and besides, their new song Cheer Up is the best of all.

I love Twice. They made me realize that my opinion about K-pop before was wrong. I used to think K-pop sucked, but after I listened to Twice, I started to love them.


Hongki has one of the best voices in K-pop, if not the best. The fact that he's in a band with four more incredibly talented and attractive members makes FTISLAND one of my favorite bands forever. Since they're the band that introduced me to K-pop, I may sound a little biased when I say that I see the most potential in them to create absolutely breathtakingly beautiful tracks.

The fact that they remain unknown compared to other bands, due to the lack of publicity from their company, irritates me to no end. Such an amazing band shouldn't be kept in the dark. It's almost sad for everyone who hasn't listened to their music, as it has so much beauty to offer.

They are all so talented, and not to mention downright hot, and their personalities make them all the more lovable. They are the most down-to-earth K-pop idols I've come across. They're almost so blunt and human-like that calling them idols feels weird to me. Jonghoon and Hongki will forever be my biases, but Seunghyun, ...more

They are not just amazing at making records. They are just as amazing at performing live. It will blow your mind how good they are. Hongki's voice is the clearest, most powerful I've ever heard live. They are all good-looking and have great charm, and you can't help but fall for them. They are amazing, and I wish them a good future.

FT Island is the best. They inspire me through all their songs. Talent, enthusiasm, passion - they have it all. I love them and the way they cheer me up and make my heart melt. FT Island, fighting! They deserve all the best things because of their dedication to music, both in the world at large and in K-pop in particular.

FT Island is a really good band. They have true personality, dorky behavior, and a really supreme voice, plus good looks. Each and every member is unique and has their own talent. What matters most is that they are a band that plays instruments. I love Seunghyun.

23 2PM/2AM

I am a HOTTEST myself, and I love them! Almost every album they've released has been very successful, getting number 1 on the Asian iTunes Charts or winning consistently on shows like Music Bank or Inkigayo. The Japanese albums they've released have been performed at the Tokyo Dome, which only the most successful K-pop idols in Japan can perform at.

Other fandoms bash on them, and I don't like it. Look at how hard they've worked to get here, as have other K-pop idols like SHINee and Big Bang. They train hard and sometimes stay up all night just to perfect their singing or practice dancing. I bet no other K-pop idol can speak six languages like Taecyeon, five languages like Nichkhun, four languages like Jun K., three languages like Junho, or two languages like Chansung and Wooyoung!

Please listen to their songs and keep supporting them till the end. I hope they will never disband like other idol groups. I love you, 2PM, and I will always be a HOTTEST and support you guys ...more

It's been a while since I got into K-pop music, but I couldn't consider myself a fan yet. Then came 2PM like a breath of fresh air. Their personalities, along with their amazing songs, turned me into a HOTTEST in no time. They are not just amazing artists but beautiful human beings as well. Nichkhun is my favorite, though. 2PM is one of the most talented K-pop groups, if not THE MOST. So, it's your loss if you're not aware of them or their songs. Go check them out. You won't regret it.

Yes, I think what makes them so amazing is not only that they are amazing dancers, singers, and performers, but they also have incredible chemistry with each other, closer than brothers. This makes them one of the most entertaining groups in K-pop. This is obviously true because 2PM have their own show, "The 2PM Show," to showcase their hilarity.

2PM might not be as popular as EXO or some other bands nowadays. Maybe it's because they haven't had some big events going on or things like that. As a 2PM fan, I might be biased, but I believe that they are the best. My love faded for them quite a bit after EXO and BAP debuted, but after a while, I went to watch all their music videos again before they released "Grown." I fell in love with them all over again. Can't you see the passion in their eyes?

I'm not saying EXO or SuJu don't have it. It's just that if you listen to their music, you know yourself that they always try their best, and music is their life. 2PM, if you ever see this, my friends nowadays are saying that you guys are getting out of the "good K-pop band" zone, and I need to prove them wrong. Please come back soon with a great album, better than all the previous ones, something that will blow their minds.

24 (G)I-DLE

(G)I-DLE is my favorite girl group for many reasons. One is that Soyeon, their leader, writes many of their lyrics. They started from scratch because their company, CUBE, couldn't fund them at first. This truly shows their passion for being idols. They are one of the prettiest groups out there. In my opinion, Miyeon (the girl who was supposed to debut with BLACKPINK) could literally be Korea's IT girl. She's so pretty! Yuqi is a great representative of China's beauty, and so is Minnie for Thailand (plus Lisa from BP). I love their concepts for all their songs, and how the MV is always so unique. Their stage presence is outstanding, especially with Soyeon and Yuqi's rap. My favorite songs are definitely "Oh My God" and the Chinese version of "Hwaa." However, their new songs are good too, for example "Tomboy" and "Nxde" in their "I Never Die" and "I Love" albums in 2022. Honestly, there's no reason not to stan these beautiful ladies!

My favorite K-pop group.


They are really hard-working, super cute, and super funny. Their choreography and songs are truly one of a kind. Each of the five members has amazing and special talent that makes them who they are. But together, they're the most talented, cutest, funniest, hottest, hardest-working, sexiest, and most honest group I've ever seen. They're not afraid to show who they truly are, and they never forget to smile and show their love to their fans, even when they're tired, sleepy, or just want to faint. They're strong!

MBLAQ is the best, and they are way underrated. They are all passionate about music and do their best! Each member has a unique personality: Joon is the muscle bimbo, Mir is the mischief maker, Cheondung (Thunder) is Dara's younger brother and is known as the octopus prince, G.O is the fur hyung (had a mustache, used to be in a trio called Tykeys with amazing voices), and Seungho is the leader, competitive, and has dark circles (he's called Panda because of that). They are also hilarious! To find out how, watch MBLAQ's Sesame Player (hilarious!) and Hello Baby (cute and hilarious!). Some of their songs are This is War, Smoky Girl, and No Love. Their CEO is Rain Bi. These are the reasons why MBLAQ is unique and the best!

They are really great! If I were to describe them in one word, it would be perfect. It's not just a "perfect word" that signifies only good things, but a word that everyone will surely love. Once you get to know them, you can't ever leave again. That's what they are. Once you love them, you'll keep loving them and fall deeper and deeper as you learn more about them, including how dorky they are, and how honest they are about everything.

These guys, MBLAQ, I really, really love them (to the infinite times), and they will always be my number one group, my one and only biased group. I'll love them forever and ever, and I'll be a fan forever.

Especially Joon oppa! I love this man ♥_♥

MBLAQ Hwaiting! Saranghae ♥

MBLAQ is the best! They are kind-hearted, they love their fans, and they are hilarious! All of their songs are different. For example, This is War is a song filled with emotion and anger, while their new song Smoky Girl is upbeat and has a club feeling to it. They all have different personalities too. Seungho is the leader and is responsible, G.O is a clean freak and has an awesome laugh, Cheondung acts cute, Joonie is known as the muscle bimbo because he is, well, a bimbo. Haha! And Mir acts all hyper, then becomes quiet. He's known as the mischief maker. Either way, they are all DAEBAK! A+ fighting! ^_^
