The Top Ten
1 Kim Hyun Joong ~ SS501 Kim Hyun-Joong is a South Korean entertainer, actor, singer, dancer, and the leader and main rapper of boyband SS501.

I would not say how was Kim Hyun Joong leadership since I am not a Korean nor live with them.. We just an outsider fan(not their family or friends), we would never know.. Just SS501 members knew about his leadership.. I just knew he lead his group became a famous boyband & he has sacrifice too much for himself through illness, injury, collapse and etc.. He is a hard working artist that I've ever seen.. I really admire him because he worked hard to improve himself and become more stronger.. He always give his best through each performance.. He is talented artist & good looking.. I love his 4D and great personality.. He is not perfect because nobody is perfect.. Though people always say he can't sing, but for me, he can sing really well.. I love his sexy voice.. Every time I hearing his soft & deep voice, I'll felt calm.. He says he is not number 1 because its will be replaced but the only one, KIM HYUN JOONG..

I have been following Kim Hyun Joong career since the debut of SS501. I love the fact that he takes on the caring and supportive role of his peers. He has a genuine heart of compassion for those he is around. I really enjoyed watching him on Barefoot friends. Kim Hyun Joon takes on new challenges with an enormous charisma that only he can pull off. His singing ability is very unique in style. Great range. I will always support him because his personality and spirit demand respect from all entertainment levels.

Boy, you ain't seen nothing yet, until you get to see and become a part of his world. KHJ always exhibit charisma and sincere deliverance within each of his performances. When you watch him with his boyband SS501, you can feel the love he has for each of his brothers because he is not afraid to display his emotions in loving them as his family. They bring such joy when they prank on each others. Oh my! Kim Hyun Joong is one of the best individuals I have seen and sincerely followed in a long time. Great things are coming soon from him, so if you do not know KHJ, you will be left behind.

Kim hyun joong is the best leader... He had sacrifice too much for SS501 and went to many schedules just to promote SS501.. He is protective and lovely leader that love his SS501 brothers so much.. He even takes all the blames that people throw to him though people didn't know what exactly happened to SS501 why they left DSP.. I really feel sorry for him.. I don't care what people says about him.. For me, he does his job really well as a SS501's leader.. Fighting Hyun Joong Leader!

2 Lee Teuk ~ Super Junior Park Jeong-su, better known by his stage name Leeteuk, is a South Korean singer-songwriter and actor.

Just see how Super Junior has gone through all the ups and downs (accidents, controversies, loss of family members, etc) and still thrive like they are now. One of the main reasons for the group's close bond and success is due to their leader.

Not to mention, Super Junior is filled with members with huge personalities and slight craziness. Leeteuk is probably the only one who can manage them.

After what he went through in 2014, you can't help but wonder what this man's heart is made of. But I'm pretty sure having the members staying beside him is also one of the reasons he could survive the tragedy.

A leader and members who are close to each other as families, what can be better than that?

We should thank Leeteuk for being a caring leader to super junior and being a caring person to us elf's. He went through lots of hardships from being a leader, but that doesn't stop him from loving and caring the other members and us elf's. We know how much he loves us elf's and the other super junior members. Maybe for him, elf's and super junior are one big happy family. He is best the leader I have ever seen. He loves us elf's and the other super junior members very much! He will always care about the other members and us elf's. We LOVE him as much as he LOVE's US!

Amazing leader that led the group through so many hardships and gain the amount of fame they have today. All the members have said more than once that they have only been able to get so far because he is the leader. He's their glue, their parent, their big brother, their shelter, etc. He's been through more trials than most people but he can still do his job with a smile and he's always one of the first people his members call for when they need help. Voted by fans, other celebrities, etc. Leeteuk is always in the running for the best leader.

He's always the best because of his caring, his accountability, sweet heart and he's the important person who can link all members ~ He shows us the way Super Junior live, the way they work, the way they love, the way they share their heart to all fans, and their supporters... He's also keep his promise, yes, always... Because of him, everyone always keep believing Super Junior, always waiting them, cheering them, cry for them, smile for them, live and love with them, and become their strength, their forever friends, their second family... Super Junior Lee Teuk IS THE BEST

3 Taeyeon ~ Girls' Generation

Taengoo is the best kid leader in the world!
Always trying to show a strong front and let her fellow sisters take the spotlight. Treating her members like sisters and not just simply girls who need to follow her instructions. She cares for them equally.
Standing up for her members and fans and staying composed and leader-like when she needs to. A very approachable, respectable, friendly, dependable, etc.. Leader! Silly, cute, adorkable, lovable, and just everything!

At first it may seem like she isn't always there for her members and that was why I never believed she was a good leader. But after much observation, I soon came to realise that she is always quietly looking out for them and she knows them very well. She just doesn't express it so openly. She never wanted to become a leader, but after assuming the role, she has done a marvelous job.

She thinks about her members first and fit in right when she needs to. She doesn't seem try to outshine others cause she believes every person deserves the spotlight. A good leader is not always the one who leads but also knows when to step back just to ensure everyone's ok. She cares for the members like a mother would and treat her fans nicely. That's why I choose her

I choose her not only because I'm a sone, but because she can do her job as a leader very well. SNSD have 9 members, and it is not an easy job to be a leader. But she has success being a leader for 7 years! That's very amazing, SNSD debut at 2007, and at that time she's still at the age of 18, but she still can be a very good leader until now, she's the best leader I've known.

4 Onew ~ SHINee

Onew is the kindest and the most caring leader among all others in Kpop without doubt! He is so cute and lovely. His cute eye smile can make your day brighter. He is like The Sun - So warm and bright. He is just too cute to resist. He is very clumsy even on the stage and that's what makes him even more cuter. He always looks out for the other members, is very responsible, very caring and is very clever. He got 2nd place in the whole school and has amazing hot abs but still doesn't show off. Onew is a very down to earth person! Though he is the elder one in the group, he is actually a baby. He has an angelic voice that can melt your heart. His eye smile and his laugh are the best in the whole world. If you had a bad day, just look at a picture of Onew smiling and it will definitely put a smile on your face. He has that effect on people! The cutest, sweetest, kindest, most caring, loveliest, clumsy yet most responsible, cleverest and the most talented leader in Kpop. SHINee is for sure ...more

Onew leads without making it known to everyone. He is an amazing leader to SHINee, and is very humble. He is polite, witty, a variety star, loved by everyone who comes into contact with him, and he is the always smiling, charismatic person, Lee Jinki. He is by all means hardworking, and is very versatile. Onew is our crazed chicken lover and we love him for that. He takes tremendous care of his dongsaengs. He may be quiet on the surface but deep down, he is carefully absorbing everything around him and is listening to other people. He is understanding, pure, and clumsy but very loveable. He is fragile, and keeps things to himself because he doesn't want it to affect SHINee. His sunbae's love him to death. Everything he does is Onew Sangtae

The most caring, loving, down-to-earth, sweet, cute, clumsy, babyboy Onew is a God sent Angel! Who wouldn't love this adorable kitty! He has got this unbelievable charisma that has a very strong magnetic power and pulls everyone towards him. His voice is what Love would sound like! He is very gentle and has such a big heart and a very PURE personality. He is one of the very few idols loved by almost all famous Kpop stars. Suju, Snsd, and not oly SM artists but members from other company also, They just love him so much for his polite and sweet nature. His dongsaengs love him so much. They always look up to him. Onew is the pillar of SHINee and each of his members are the lucky son of a gun to have him.

Just an all around wonderful human being!...A king among man...A prince with a heart of gold and angel in disguise! Teamini the baby! Minho the other little prince, Jonghyun the voice of an angel with a sensitive great soul and Key the precious and sweet loving character always so proper they are all just got to be the luckiest group to have a leader like Onew with such beautiful disposition! Well! Compliments aside he is extremely talented a genius in his field!

5 Rap Monster ~ BTS

He suffers alone, he's willing to work hard to exchange for his member's happiness. He had made so many sacrifices, and the fact that he still looks happy in front of others justifies he has a very strong mindset. All of this are qualities of a great leader. BTS has come so far, as being the BIGGEST boy band in the WORLD, with amazing music, had changed many lives (their music had helped me out of my depression), are mainly the efforts of ONE person! REALLY shows that Rap Monster is NO JOKE..

RM has went thru a lot. And have got a lot of critisism. He treats everyone equally without leaving any member. He chose BTS when asked BTS or solo.
He had always been mature and supportive to the members. He is indeed the best leader . And I love them for their unity.

I can't even start to mention the many reasons why he is one of the best leaders any group can ask for.. from converting the hate comments to encouraging ones, to leading a band from a group going bankrupt and making it THE BIGGEST boy grp out there, Namjoon is the inspiration I will always look up to!

RM is the best! He has a kind heart, he cares for his members a lot, when the others were pushing themselves too far RM noticed that and stoped raping, they were sweating and looked tried. RM said "They were pushing themselves too far and I was worried about them, I try-ed my best to take care of them, but Jungkook was the one who was pushing himselve too hard than the others."

But RM took good care of him and the others then they all got better.

It was really sad when I heard it,and RM took good care of them.

And they learned their lesson.

We love you Kim Namjoon!

6 G-Dragon ~ BIGBANG

He has the good fashion sense, compare to others leader. He always made new stuff and new fashion sense that others have not yet been to this world. He is good in producing nice music. He lead the group well. He once say that he met a good maknae. So I think that he thinks himself as a member also, when he is in a game or in a normal life. But when comes to music, he leads well. I found his charisma in leading. I inspire what he do, how he care. He don't just look on to his fashion wear but to his members too. Whenever he is making the bigbang albums song. He understand wells and know which part of the music suit the member voice. So what if he is been to the drug matter before? It doesn't spoilt the fans image for him. Is the couragement he needs and not discouragements he need from the fans. So no matter what, he is the best!

GD is multitalented on so many levels. He’s a creator, composer, song writer, comedian, hard boss and a perfect leader plus advisor for the group. Perfect example of a great leader!

Please, no one can get on G-Dragon's level. HE'S EVERYWHERE, not just in S. Korea. Other western artists have taken notice of him, too. He's admired not just in the music world but also in the fashion world. He's been invited to the biggest fashion shows and gets the coolest (not to mention EXPENSIVE) free gifts from famous designers that respect and admire him.

But enough about that. As a leader, he's THE BEST. He writes and compose ALL of BIGBANG'S songs and THEY ALWAYS TOP THE MUSIC CHARTS. ALWAYS. But that should come as no surprise since GD is a perfectionist and a GOD at what he does. He's made miracles out of semi-ok singers. Even songs made for variety shows (infinite challenge) top the charts.

And best of all, he's good to TOP, Daesung, Taeyang, and Seungri. He's compose songs for them, too and his hard work and efforts shows because even those songs made it to the top of the music charts. And it's never just random songs. No, when GD writes for his group ...more

Based on the success of BIGBANG and the one of a kind brotherhood of the guys I think G-Dragon is a true leader. He let every member shine in his group and you notice very well that he's taking care of all of them. He has strenght, charisma and an unbroken will to let anyone know that BIGBANG are the true kings of K-Pop. Many idols admire him, his persona, his producing, his music and his fashion sense. He is a role model and also very human too. For me now and forever my first choice of a pretty damn good leader!

7 $.Coups ~ Seventeen

I love him, he's talented and all yes, but honestly what makes him a great leader is the fact that he has literally led 12 boys through thick and thin with that heartwarming smile.. just watch their first and last MV and you'd know what I'm talking about

Scoups, his real name is Seungcheol, allows 12 other boys to lean on his shoulder whenever. They struggled to debut but they are now a well known name in Kpop and all around the world. Seungcheol suffered from anxiety during tour and took a break. He is now back and better. People make fun of his anxiety for what? Mental health is not something to joke around with. He loves his members and has said before that his members are more important to him than the agency. Not only does he love his members but he loves Carats. Yes, Seventeen is my ult and I might be coming off as biased but it's truly hard to lead a group with so many members and many looking up at him. He brings himself down at times but the members and Carats love him for who he is and we thank him a lot for being one of the greatest leaders. Thank you Seungcheol for everything you've done for Seventeen and Carat. Please support Seungcheol and Seventeen <33

He does so much to make sure the other members are healthy and happy and he always goes out of the way to make sure they are taking care of themselves. He never forgets to thank them for believing in him even though he feels like he's not a good leader. And whenever they have to do something where they could get hurt he always volunteers because he would rather get hurt himself than risk anyone else.

I dunno what to say 'cause I don't have the words. Seungcheol-oppa is one of the best, but really, one of the best leader. My ultimate group is Seventeen, so I know a lot about him and the team, and yeah, I really think that he's the best. I'm also a multifandom so... I can compare my words and no one can change my mind.

8 Suho ~ Exo Kim Jun-myeon was born on May 22, 1991. Known professionally as Suho, he is a South Korean singer and actor. He is a member and the leader of the South Korean boy group EXO and its sub-unit group called EXO-K.

Suho, even though he doesn't like to be referred to as the mom of exo, is so caring and loving towards his members that exo-ls generally call him the mom of EXO. He always pushes for the interests of the boys first, and we can see how much he loves his members.
Even when he's tired and on the verge of a breakdown, he holds it all together and avoids crying in front of his members, so that they don't get worried.

Exo-ls are so proud of our precious leader!

He's an awesome leader and he really cares for them like a family/as a parent or older sibling. He carries medicines just for the members and he also deals with the constant teasing they do. Personally I think he really cares specially for tao, chanyeol, kai, sehun, and Chen. Tao because he is so adorbs, chanyeol because he yelled at him a lot before during training days, kai because he knows he is not comfortable with cameras, sehun because he is the magnae (sehun even said he is the best) and Chen because he always comforts him when he cries when they win an award. He is awesome

Our super leader, you've worked hard to reach for this far. Your wait for the debut is finally paid off. Thank you for being birn as a nice person, a humble person for human being. Your kindness never fade. You're nation's pick now. Eris are proud of you. We love you so much. Thank you for always take a good care of ypur members. Esp sehun, he said that even though he come home late, you always wait for him and you always ask him for come home early. Thank you for staying up late when there's a member need you. You always be with them through thick and thin. When there's a time on mcountdown you're alone to receive the award after the storm,you try your best for not to cry in front of everyone. Thank you for always being strong after all of those black memories. Thank you for being a good and supportive leader. We love you!

Suho is very patient, kind and warm hearted. He always thinks about his fellow members and has best manners. In tough times he doesn't get panic instead supports his members.He doesn't show off the responsibility he's bearing on his shoulders. He gives more priority to his members opinion than his opinion.,makes sure that every member in his family is happy and content

9 Bang Chan - Stray Kids

Skz has faced so much at such a young age ... and as a leader Bang Chan had to face a lot of brunt of it, and look at him still being so happy and taking care of his members, like, ALWAYS! Not, to mention he's so TALENTED!

He works really hard, writing and producing their songs with Changbin and Jisung. Chan is talented - he can sing, rap and dance really well. He cares so much for the team, is not overly strict (acts like the maknae sometimes tbh) and even did a series of V-lives where he shared his favourite music with us and talked to us about anything difficult we were going through. Overall, he is just a super talented, kind guy with a sexy accent.

He always puts his members first. Even JYP told him that he should care about himself more on stage than his members. He's so grateful of his members and he treats and looks at the members as if he gave birth to them lol.

Bang chan always take care of his member while doing dance practice and etc , he also love music and do some choreography for the mv , he is the best , he is always amazing , I'm proud to be his fans ,

10 Shownu ~ Monsta X

Although I'm not a fan of Monsta X, Shownu's one of the few leader in kpop in my observation that portrays excellent leadership. He can be strict at times but can also let loose and have fun when the situation calls for it. From what I've seen on the interviews and events, he's practically the wall of Monsta X and it's pretty clear that all members adores and respect him. I think one of the members always calls him dad or something.

I just became a fan of Monsta X when I heard their collaboration with French Montana and Shownu was the first member to grab my attention. From what I’ve researched (net) and what I have observed, he maybe one of few leaders that their members really respect and adore. He is acts like a dad to them maybe that is why the members are very comfortable around him. He is not really good at public speaking but I think it is one of his charm. He’s the kind to act on things instead of speaking which to me is a really great attitude for a leader. (Action speak louder than words.) He’s also very passionate and open-minded. Plus his looks ain’t bad! (Ahem! ). I hope I get to see them perform live. Proud Monbebe here!

He never failed to encourage and support the other members all the time and he does a lot of things so that the other members would be comfortable without the media knowing. And although he tried really hard to hide it, he failed from time to time. Love appa bear Shownu! Best dad in Kpop industry! 💕

He's a great leader. I love his personality. He shows kindness and respect to the pther members

The Contenders
11 YunHo ~ TVXQ Jung Yun-ho, also known by his stage name U-Know Yunho or simply U-Know, is a South Korean singer, actor, and a member of the pop duo TVXQ.

Yunho isn't just ambassador to the media which is pretty much where expectations of group leaders end. He wasn't appointed leader because of age, popularity or good looks. He is humble and resilient. He is respected by his member (s); he truly keeps the group in line & handles their problems as much as he is capable. Where other idol leaders worry about getting camera time or rest in-between, Yunho is busy relieving some of the burdens off of managers and staff. He may be clumsy & aloof sometimes, but he is excellent at reading people & situations. This inbred skill has come in handy throughout the years when he has stepped in as a crisis negotiator between friends or other celebrities.

Yunho is leader by nature, he give his everything to his group and make sure that he give them the best ever, he always put them before himself, he is so loyal and so kind, he is a very hard worker, he bring TVXQ to the best position anyone could dream about, he make TVXQ the most famous group in whole Asia and not just Asia he is very popular around the world by his great leadership, everyone respect and love him, and he respect and love all his fans, he is very loyal to his fans also and make the best to them, he is simply the great leader of the legend group DONG BANG SHIN KI, we his fans trust him so much and respect him eith all our heart...

He is the most charismatic leader of kpop idol n the most respected one by his members compare to other groups. None single of their members talking bad n they always did what yunho said, even when dbsk was tired of the deathly unhuman schedule when doing a show yunho will be the one who s doing the competition replacing his tired members. His none talk to much n so professional is what makes tvxq as a big name in a world. Other leaders such as kim hyun joong, leetuk, even the one from snsd is not being respected n somehow bullied by their members, it reminds me that 3 of them also lack professionalism that once their show was being cancelled last minute which is never happen with dbsk.

Although others think that Leeteuk is best leader, but for me not to bashing anyone but Yunho is best leader... He can endure the TVXQ's problems nowadays with success and keep TVXQ like before.. It's really hard from 5 to 2.. Can you feel that?

Many bashed him bout the split but he take that alone even Changmin told him" can you lend your problems to other"? Ah Yunho.. We know that you're the best leader..

Fighting oppa! Cassiopeia are and always support 5 members of TVXQ! We waiting for you

12 Yong Hwa ~ CNBlue

Yong Hwa is probably the best leader in K-POP right now. He is not only Multi-talented doing everything from composing songs to singing to acting to variety shows to MC-ing, he also promotes the CNBLUE albums with as much sincerity as going on a world tour. He ensures all his band mates were giving importance and helped them grow as well. When they were a rookie band in Japan he single handedly promoted CNBLUE and ensured that all the earnings were split amongst the four band mates thus encouraging the feeling of loyalty and brotherhood by his actions.
He dares to take risks and is also very smart, intelligent and avoids scandals that can hurt the image of the band.

He has his share of frustration, dissapointment, and drama in life but when he face his members he never shown any sign of it. Instead he show them a strong, realiable, and dedicated leader that they can rely on. This is to make his members be inspired and not be discourage at all. Facing the so complicated entertainment industry, he show a stronger, passionate, and determine leader of his band. Always leading his group in achieving their goal. As an artist, he is always appreciative towards his and their band's many fans. As an individual, he is matured in his age, talented, charming, charismatic, passionate, responsible, and kind hearted. His cheerful personality also added to his charm. Bonus factor is that he is extremely handsome.

He is the best leader in K-Pop, have a entertainment show that I saw, BigBang's Seungri asked Yong Hwa is it CNBLUE's member buy clothes are use his personal card to pay? He answered yes. And in another show, CNBLUE's member also said that when the year they debuted, only Leader Yong Hwa was working and doing all activities, and when their name were getting known, Yong Hwa could show some kind of attitudes to them. Not only these, Yong Hwa get all the income will absolutely divide with his member. He such a good brother and good leader. Keep it up Yong Hwa Oppa.

Yong Hwa is the BEST! He worked hard for all the songs he composed...he's not selfish. He acts a very good hyung to his dongsengs and never leaves them behind. He could have gone solo but still worked hard to raise the CNBLUE's name because he loves this band and its members. He's very humurous, kind, thoughtful, and caring. He is so talented and does not step on other people. Jung Yong Hwa is really one of a kind. Though he does not really dance like other kpop bands/groups, he still has other assets to showcase in order to reach the top. Their band is really STRONG! He's not snob to his fans actually. He's getting more handsome everyday :)) he never loses hope. He never forgot all those people who helped him. He doesn't cheat...everything is good about him. He gets what he deserves and he deserves everything nice. Jung Yong Hwa and CNBLUE fighting!

13 CL ~ 2NE1

CL is younger than Bommie and Dara and yet when she was appointed the leader, she took charge like a boss. She doesn't baby the girls or mistreat them. She gets work done. She encourages them without coddling them and knows when to push and when to let her group member work things out themselves. All this can be seen if you've watched 2NE1 T.V.. CL has put up a strong front at 17-18 yrs. old just so she can be the strong hand when her group members need it. I have no doubt t that should things go not the way YG wants, CL is the one taking the blow for the group (also shown on 2NE1TV during their first big concert).

She's just an amazing leader who is respected, admired and loved by Bom, Dara and Minzy (yes, I know she left).

CL is such a loyal leader. She genuinely cares for the other three members, and does so much to keep them happy and ensure the best working conditions for them. She always considers their opinions when helping with concert planning, performance preparations, etc. Once, she even stayed up overnight to surprise the members with handmade shoes! (check out 2NE1 T.V. season 1)
Her personality is great, her fashion is good, she's extremely talented, she's independent, strong, brave. She's everything you look for in a leader.

I Adore CL, I've witnessed both sides of her alter ego. She is sweet but fierce. The way she talks is also with manner but with cuteness as-well. When she speaks in any language I can understand. Unlike other Artists. She doesn't have a bit of jealousy in her. I can see her performing on that stage in Madison Square gardens withing the next two years. If their English album hurry's up and debuts.

CL is the BEST LEADER.. She has all the quality of a BEST leader..
She is the best in~singing, dancing, rapping etc.. She always thinks what is the best for her members.. And always protecting them.. They are treating each other like sister not just a member.. And they are not just a group but a Family..2ne1!

And I love the way she show her personality.. A strong personality
In stage she is TheBaddestFemale, the strong leader. A powerful girl... Chaerin Lee

And I love 2ne1 because they shows their love to their fans.. Blackjacks

14 Victoria - f(x)

Vic -eomma is a daebak leader. She really works hard managing her activities in China and also with f (x). She has matured a lot since debut considering the fact that she couldn't speak fluent Korean at that time. She really cares for the members and they look upto her.. Victoria unnie fighting! F (x) fighting!

This goofy flexible Chinese leader is like a mother to her members! She takes care of them the best compared to the other groups. Victoria fighting!

Victoria she so perfect to be the leader of f (x) and she my bias like sulli... I support to her every Kdrama she have <3 I totally love victoria and f (x) and I'm very proud she's the leader of f (x)... Victoria fighting guys...! Fighting F (x) more love and support for me! Love you!

She's very kind to the members and is like a mom to them. Instead of being snippy about being so much older, she takes care of them and befriended all of them.

15 JR ~ Nu'est

He's just very humble and selfless. NU'EST has through a lot because of something that can't be controlled by him, yet, he blames himself for not taking care of his group well. He's nation's leader!

No doubt. He never fails to impress me. He became NU'ESTs leader at the age of 16. And he's held his head up high, regardless of all the struggles and obsticales thrown his way. He's truly an amazing leader. He's proven why his country gave him the title of Korea's National Leader, indeed.

I love JR so much, so humble & caring leader! Mature but also really cute at the same time! National leader indeed!

This guy is seriously the best leader I've seen so far. How can you not love such a selfless angel?

16 JB ~ GOT7

He's the best leader ngl... I stan lots of these groups too but the commitment JB puts into the group is amazing. He writes their songs, is also in 2 sub units and basically is the dad of the group

I like the way he care for the member . he is chin but at the time he is soft and cute. he is really talented too I love his voice it so amazing.he do whatever his member told to do and try hard to make them happy . he care for them as they are his real family.I don't think he is strict . he set a freedom to his member . they can do whatever they want .

JB once cried to 2PM's Nichkun because he felt like he was lacking as leader. GOT7 had just reached their 2nd year as a group then and he could feel that his members were feeling depressed and homesick. After that day, the group has only reached newer heights and their friendship is goals, for lack of a better word. The group's bond is unique. They're not than just friends. They're family.

JB doesn't just give his support. He helps them. He sweats beside them. He encourages them. I remember when Jackson was getting a lot of hate, JB had said that he looks at Jackson and wishes he can do his China schedules for him. If that not the definition of a leader then I don't know what is.

Knows what decisions to make for his members.
May seem serious sometimes, but is soft and as crazy as the others.

17 Sunggyu ~ Infinite

He is the best leader that Infinite has ever had. More than putting himself first he always looks out for his members mainly sungjong and sungyeol. He is the most dedicated leader I have ever seen. Humble, kind, matured and most importantly humorous. He does not let his members be astray and make sure that everyone is involved. He is very supportive to his members and he s strict at times when needed to be strict and caring at times when he needs to be caring. In the end he is my bias for being the best humorous guy in infinite

Sunggyu, in my opinion, is the best leader. Though he may be stern and strict at times when it comes to performing on stage - singing and dancing - he is actually very sweet and thoughtful of his members, and he would notify the manager if the members are feeling stressed. Besides, he is very easy-going and goes with the flow of other members instead of just caring about himself, and he doesn't even mind being called nicknames like "Last Gyu" during Ranking King. Other than his wonderful personality, he also has charming looks and a beautiful voice he uses for singing. He really tries his best at dancing and he can even rap. Multi-talents leader, Sunggyu, definitely wins over other leaders.

SungGyu is the one who leading his members so well. And he always take care of his members. On the other hand he is well behaved person. Also he treating so well to other idols and fans.

Words can't express my feelings for Sunggyu. He is just such an amazing leader. He is not self-centered and he even takes care of his members. And often worries about them more that he worries about himself. He really has a great responsibilities and never fail to lead the group so well. Each of the members in infinite are so close to each other, they even share out their worries and personal things to each other. They are the most sincere group I've ever seen in all kpop bands. And they are truly a family. When they are tired of practicing for their performance, Sunggyu takes the members out and spend time together and tell every single one of them to just do their best on the performance. The songs the sang,the dance they performed, are all sincere. And the most important thing is he always does his best in everything. He is truly an inspiring leader to me. It doesn't matters if he's not the best leader. Because to me, he is the best of best!

18 Taecyeon ~ 2PM

I only vote because its 2PM...2PM never had a leader since Jay leave the group. The members lead together as one. Because the leader place is irreplaceable. Hope you understand that and never put 2PM into this leader competition again. You do that. I'm owe you one

Yeah Taecyeon is the best and comedian! Lets Taec we're Hottest gonna support you always lest go 2pm lets go 2pm lets go 2pm!

I hope taecyeon oppa should be leader 2pm

The Best BODY and Hottest

19 Jonghun ~ F.T. Island

Cool and sexy, not talking much but can control his bandmates. Even Hongki, the naughtiest, the real trouble maker in group will shut up once Jonghoon ask for it. When other idols are only singing and good looking, Jonghoon is different. He's not only good looking and singing well, (but also) more important he can play instruments: piano and guitar. He composed many songs, even title songs like Neverland and Stay. Those songs were used to be OST of anime 'Ozma", sold in 50 countries (English version), and Stay will be OST for 3 programs on Japan T.V.. It proves that Jonghoon skill in composing music is great, step by step his sings will be known worldwide.

I think people mistake Hongki for the leader because he is the main vocal and always energetic. Jonghun is shy if you really pay attention, I have noticed that. He is a fantastic leader, he works quietly "behind the scenes"but you can feel his powerful aura. He takes care of the members, he knows them well enough to know how to calm them down. He has a strong sense of responsibility, he is very sexy. I could go on, but I think what I am saying is Jonghun is the multitalented, caring, sexy leader of FTIsland.

Why isn't Hongki the leader? That's what most people say, but Primadonnas know that Jonghun is just as deserving of this title as Hongki is. He is shy, awkward and cheesy, but I think that's part of his charms. He is an excellent guitarist, pianist and keyboardist. While I will admit that he ranks low in vocals in the group, it seems like lately he has gotten much better (listen to his piano performance of Beautiful World with Seunghyun). He can be sweet, sexy, cute and handsome. Jonghun Oppa, please keep on being amazing, you may not get a lot of recognition for your works, but Primadonnas support you. Primadonnas are FTISLAND's pillar. Five Treasures, One goal: to protect and support FTISLAND.

Though he's shy, he's a really good person. He has this sort of quiet, powerful charisma. Reminds me of a sexy dragon or something like that. He isn't all that great at singing, but he's gotten much better. But he plays guitar and piano. He can compose. (Need proof that he's an excellent composer? He composed PRAY. Which won a lot of awards on music shows.) He can dance. He cares for his juniors. For example, he helped Seunghyun when he had just joined the group. And he's sexy.

20 DooJoon ~ BEAST

Doo Joon is the best leader. I thought he should be on higher ranking than this. I really love on how he take care of other members of BEAST. He mature and that's why he can lead BEAST very well. Doo Joon also has open-minded thinking and bright personality whenever people mention about his weakness. No doubt he is one of the best leader. I support Doo Joon and I love BEAST!

The best appa of the group. Always worries about his members and their welfare. Loves surprising and teasing them, which makes the whole group lively and enjoyable. Knows when is the time to be serious and when to goof around with his members. Charismatic, charming, good-looking and a voice to die for.

I love yoon leader. He's a caring, charismatic and an awesome leader that always takes care of his member. He wakes them up in the morning and even though he picks on them, he cares for them. I love how he takes care if his member and I love him for being a great leader. Yoon leader is the best! B2ST forever!

A person who has looks, charms and most importantly, a caring personality that when they won almost any awards, he will be the first to hug all the members. Not to mention working hard alone just so that his members could have enough sleep during their concert. I love this guy!

21 Eric Mun ~ Shinhwa

There are different leaders even in K-pop groups. Eric is one who is trying his best in background for the well-being of Shinhwa. 14 years of staying together as a group, this is very difficult, I can assure. Even friendship that lasts this long is difficult to find. While this is not all due to Eric's deed, large proportion is his.

When someone commented on his choice of Shinhwa over acting, he replied that the initial start and the reason they are here is the group 'Shinhwa' not acting or solo singing career.
Also, it's very well-known thing that he declined high worthy contract just for Shinhwa.
When Shinhwa left their initial company, there was different hardships and Eric tried his best to correct things and solve things out so Shinhwa can still be Shinhwa.
He might be 4-dimensional thinker sometimes, but he is a deep thinker. He gave amazing comment in defense of Shinhwa to an article that is clearly bashing Shinhwa and members' efforts.

I don't know ...more

Eric Mun is not just the best leader but a very honorable and generous man. He put the interests of Shinhwa and members as his priorities and he is always to sacrifice his career for the good of the group. All the other leaders in this survey can not claim that they gave up a lucrative contract just so the group will remain intact and for the members to have an equal share in the earnings. For their comeback in 2012, again it is Eric who has given up the most by refusing to accept solo activities just so Shinhwa can regain back its footing in this very fickle industry. The group promised to put up their own company and gave the responsibility to Eric to run and I think that is one of the wisest moves the members have ever done, well aside from they listening to leave SM and let him handle everything.
Eric Mun is not just a leader, he is an excellent rapper, awesome actor, captivating dancer, a variety gem, a loyal friend, a dorky man, a very capable and competent CEO, a legend, a ...more

Eric Mun, he might be shy, quiet, awkward, 4D at times but behind all that there is a smart, intellectual, humble & very loyal man.

What has Eric done for Shinhwa?

. He rejected a big solo contract offer from SM to keep Shinhwa together with his band mates

. Went to court with SM so they can retain the use of Shinhwa name and able to move to another management. It was epic in K-biz at that time.

. He defended Shinhwa when a reporter recklessly bashed on their 7th jib ("coincidentally" was the group's 1st album AFTER Shinhwa left SMent)

. In 2011, Eric was in a 10hr-long negotiation with Open World, who currently holds the rights to Shinhwa's name, so they can establish their own company (another 1st in K-biz)

. When the fans said the tickets to the 2012 Big 4 Charity Concert were too expensive, he negotiated with the organizer and made it more affordable for every one.

Chosen leader because he's the oldest in the group (often is the ...more

Eric... I can't say he's perfect, I can't say he's flawless, I probably can't say much about him, since everyone has commented about him here, and since I'm a new SHCJ this year. But one thing for sure that even all people know, you just can't have 14 years of an idol group without a brilliant, amazing, brave, loyal, caring, humble n maybe lil 4D on the side kind of Leader. Maybe this is exaggerating, but it's the truth. Eric is the perfect example of how leader should be, quiet on the side, but pushing the other members upwards on the other. He doesn't need glamorous exposure, but with his quiet leadership skills, this exposure came on it's own. And even so, he never boast about himself, all he talks and done, it's all for Shinhwa.

22 Kahi ~ After School

She wasn't just the former leader, main dancer, main rapper (when Bekah graduated), lead vocal, co-choreographer of After School.

But she was the one..

.. Who hand-picked the original members of After School.
.. Who teaches the members their routine if they have a hard time.
.. Who waited for 10 years to finally be a singer.
.. Who abandoned everything, even her own family who don't approve of her dream, to reach her goal.

She's even one of the foundations of Pledis Entertainment, together with their CEO Han Sung so and the first artist under the agency, Son Dam Bi.

If there's a leader who embodies being a REAL leader, not just for the label and image.. It's PARK KAHI.

Kahi should be in at least TOP 10.
She's one of the most talented KPOP Idols out there.
She can sing, dance, rap, write her own song, play piano, she's the co choreographer of AS, she's a good athletic. She can play drums too! Kahi Is known as my rolemodel for a reason. She's the best! Kahi unnie jjang

Determined and really caring Leader. Hands on in every way. Choreographer, Adviser, concept maker, motivator, Friend, and a true leader!

Has strong dancing skills and can sing and rap... Kahi unnoe fighting

23 Bo-ram ~ T-Ara

I thought t-ara soyeon is their leader right? But why boram is written in there?


24 Irene ~ Red Velvet

With her great visuals, stunning dance moves, excellent rapping, and good voice, Irene is a great leader

Our nervous yet elegant group. Red velvet leader irene...

Irene is the best kpop leader who tries not to cry in front of her members and acts as their mother.

She’s the greatest leader for me of course .

25 Soyeon ~ T-ara

Best T-ARA leader ever. I watched all T-ARA documentary, video, shows and I can see she's a natural leader even when it's not her turn. She is not the type who ordering people around but her opinion and the way she delegate with members and others are really professional.

Hands down the cutest leader of all time. Cute, while really mature.

The most beautiful and cute and talented leader of all time.

Bullying people doesn't make her a great leader lol
