If you’re interested to know the Top 10 KPOP Boy Group, scroll down to this post! We also gathered some interesting facts about each group that you’ll surely want to know.
TOP 10 KPOP Boy Group
Rank #1 – BTS
BTS is a South Korean male hip-hop group that debuted on June 13, 2013. Its agency is BigHit Entertainment. In 2018, they were awarded the Flower Crown Order of Culture by the South Korean government, the youngest ever, for their contribution to the spread of the Korean Wave and the Korean language.
There are various reasons why they have succeeded in the world, such as catchy melodies, splendid performances, handsome looks, agency strategies, and successfully riding the global trend of singing diversity, but that’s all. I think BTS has a power that cannot be explained.
BTS is the existence that “makes us dream” and “the existence that takes us beyond our dreams”. Born in a provincial city in South Korea, they will cross the sea and succeed in the United States and the world. It’s simply exciting to see their progress, and thanks to the words they say, “Together with ARMYs” and “Thanks to ARMYs,”
I am also a BTS supporter. It makes me feel like I’m walking with you on the access road. It gives me the courage and hopes that I might be able to do it, that I might be able to make my dreams come true. I think that’s the biggest attraction.
It is a group that is so popular now that there is an image of BTS when it comes to Korean idols. Their singing ability, sharp dance, and looks are attractive. I think it’s amazing that he always gives a spectacular performance at live performances and MMA.
Every BTS Music Video made every time gives me goosebumps. I think it’s really wonderful that they care about fans even though it’s hard to practice singing and dancing every day.

Rank #2 – SEVENTEEN
SEVENTEEN (세븐틴) is a 13-member male idol group from South Korea. Belongs to Pledis Entertainment. The abbreviation is “Sebuchi”. On May 26, 2015, they released their mini-album “17 CARAT” and debuted in Korea with their debut showcase.
Debuted in Japan on May 30, 2018, with the mini album “WE MAKE YOU”. The official fan club name is “CARAT”.
The number of members is quite large, but I think it’s amazing that everyone is together even in the intense dance. A friend who likes SEVENTEEN around me recommended it, and the first song I listened to was Beautiful. I was fascinated by Uji-kun’s transparent singing voice and listened to it many times for a while.
They are a group that really cares about their fans, they call out to their fans during live performances and award ceremonies, and they treat them warmly at handshake events. They write their own songs and choreography, so we are particular about it, and on stage, the delicate lyrics and dance are wonderful.
Despite the fact that there are 13 members in total, I like how they perform a uniform dance. I want to see it in pull rather than up. I think that makes them appreciate their efforts. It feels good to watch because the difficult dances are perfectly aligned. I think it’s more difficult to find where it’s off.
Rank #3 – ENHYPEN
The 3rd most popular KPOP Boy Group is ENHYPEN. The level is so high that it’s hard to believe that they just debuted. Everyone is cool and tall, so we have the ideal men for girls! No frills.
ENHYPEN’s songs are also really addictive, so please listen to it! I would recommend listening to their SHOUT OUT song.
They’re still going to grow, so they’ve always been one point ahead of BTS, but their recent remarkable growth and overwhelming performance have made them number one in my opinion.
Everyone’s skills were high from the beginning of their debut, but on top of that, they probably practiced desperately, everyone’s dance sharpness, facial expression management, vocal members’ singing, etc. are all top class.
Not only Heeseung’s magnificent singing and Niki’s overwhelming dance, but all members have grown into tremendous expressive artists, and I feel that they are approaching a complete form as a boy group.
The level of visuals is also amazing. Dark and different from orthodox handsome men like TXTA’s world of beauty. Many of their songs are dark and have addictive sounds, and once you get into it, it will be a swamp that you can’t get out of.
The concept and story are strong, and I feel that BTS’s blood has been inherited the most in Hive.
They are no longer idols, but artists. (Self-producing is not a condition of an artist. If you say that, all classical musicians are not artists.)
A group where everyone’s visuals are amazing. The group dance unique to GROUP is wonderful. Performance is already like a veteran’s. It has a lot of good songs and is highly addictive. The charm and friendliness shown in the reality show are staggering.
Their songs will continue to grow and their visuals too! There is no doubt that the 4th generation-representative KPOP group is ENHYPEN.
Rank #4 – TOMORROW X TOGETHER
TOMORROW X TOGETHER (Tomorrow By Together, Korean: 투모로우바이투게더) is a five-member idol group. Belongs to Big Hit Entertainment. The label is Republic Records. Debuted on March 4, 2019. Also known as TXT.
The name of the group means “You and I, who are different, will gather together with one dream and create tomorrow together.” It has the meaning of becoming a cheerful and bright group like this.
Tomorrow X Together debuted in 2019 as BTS’ little brothers. The youngest is 17 years old and the freshness is very cute. I’m happy because I can see the entanglement with BTS. I hope that it will continue to grow.
Naturally, I was interested in them because he was the younger brother of the same agency as BTS. This time, when I listened to the Japan debut CD for the first time, I thought that the songs were really good. I haven’t seen them perform yet, but the members are very close to each other, so is it okay to keep some distance? There are times when I worry about it
Visually impossibly divine. Of course, both dancing and singing are good enough to die. What do you mean, an honor student in the idol world? the avengers?
And the ability to produce that matches the image of these children is also attractive. The story of the concept is amazing.
Rank #5 – STRAY KIDS
Stray Kids (스트레이 키즈) is a Korean boy group under JYP Entertainment that debuted on March 25, 2018, after being selected through Mnet’s survival program “Stray Kids”.
Starting with Hyunjin, who has become more popular with long blond hair, the other members are getting more and more sophisticated. A group that is sure to become even more popular in the future with its self-produced songs that are not found in other groups.
The song ALL IN by Stray kids is too cool! I also like how leader Bang Chan chose the members! The dances of all members are cool, but among them, the lead rapper and main dancer Hyunjin’s dance is the best!
Everyone, please check out Stray kids! It’s a pity that JYPark only sees NiZiu these days. In South Korea, NiZiu’s recognition is low. Anyway, I think that ability is the strongest. It was sad that Woojin left, but even with 8 of them, they are already at the highest level.
Rather than saying, they are constantly breaking through the limits, saying “Better than before, better than before”.
It has become very popular recently and is expected to become even more popular in the future.

Rank #6 – ASTRO
ASTRO (Astro, morning: 아스트로) is a South Korean boy group. Belongs to Fantagio. The group name means celestial bodies, stars, and stars in Spanish, and contains the members’ pure desire to be the universe and the stars for everyone they love. ASTRO’s fan club names are ASTRO/HEART/ALL FANS and AROHA, which means Astro’s only fan.
First of all, the eldest MJ is very lively and funny. He never gives a bad face, and thanks to his presence, the place becomes warmer and more lively. His younger brothers also really admire him.
According to him, he is not good at dancing, but he sings exceptionally well. He’s usually so playful that it’s almost like he doesn’t have quiet time, but he’s the member with the biggest gap when it comes to performance.
1st place in the personal MJ grand prize category is “Pale love”, “You’re my world”, “Because it’s you”
Next, the second son and leader, Jinjin, is really kind and really slow, but I’m looking around first. The kind eyes that watch over the members are really kind. Relied on by all members. He usually jokes about being the oldest, but the gap between sharp dance and low-pitched voice rap is also amazing.
Followed by the 3rd member, Cha Eun Woo, the group facilitator. He thinks that many people probably learned about ASTRO from Eunwoo. Needless to say, his face is a national treasure. And he’s smart too.
People who know Eunwoo from dramas may have the impression that Eunwoo is an adult, but when he is with the members, he often plays tricks on the members and laughs a lot. Although he is serious, he is very mischievous.
He himself says that he is not good at singing and dancing, but it is true that he was awkward in the early days, but now he has put in a lot of effort and has become really good at both singing and dancing.
The 4th member is Moonbin. He cares about his fans and is a very hard worker. He’s also a muscle idiot. One last thing, he sleeps well. Since he was a trainee for a long time, he has no complaints about singing and dancing. he is a very hard worker.
The 5th member is Raki. He is so natural that there is a word called Lucky World. He’s really bad at aegyo, but when he’s dumped by a member or when he has to do something no matter what, the embarrassed smile he sometimes makes after being aegyo is the cutest.
Also, although he is in charge of rapping, he is good enough to sing and sing high notes, and he is also good at dancing as he is the dance leader. In other words, you can do everything from dancing to rapping to normal singing.
He doesn’t usually talk like that, but he smiles and laughs at the members’ remarks, and sometimes his tension gets too high, and even his eldest son can get loud. His performance on stage is always hit. Anyway, I think he is the best at dancing and singing because he is very sexy.
ASTRO is aiming to be a Japanese idol Arashi, but they are really well-balanced and get along just like Arashi. The fans are kind and gentle. I’m not saying that you should become a fan, but I would like you to watch videos on YouTube and get to know ASTRO even a little and get interested.
Rank #7- TREASURE
TREASURE (Treasure, Morning: 트레저) is a 12-member South Korean male idol group. Debuted on August 7, 2020, with the single album “THE FIRST STEP: CHAPTER ONE”. Belongs to YG Entertainment. A group formed jointly by the boy group “TREASURE”, which was selected as the 7 debut members from the debut survival program “YG Treasure Box”, and the boy group “MAGNUM”, which was selected from the 6 members who were not selected.
Not to mention the ability to win many rookie awards this season, the 12 characters are really diverse, Irodori Midori (laughs) Is it their flagship program? Don’t miss the “TREASURE MAP” on YouTube! If you are even more interested, please check out the survival program “YG Treasure Box” that led to their formation!
Towards their debut, they overcame many hardships, and their affection and bond with their fans are the best.
Rank #8 – ATEEZ
ATEEZ (에이티즈) is an eight-member Korean idol group. It debuted on October 24, 2018, with the mini album “TREASURE EP.1: All To Zero”. Debuted in Japan with the album “TREASURE EP.EXTRA: Shift The Map” on December 4, 2019.
The origin of the group name is “A TEEnage Z” (everything in the teens). The official fandom name is “ATINY”, which means ATEEZ + DESTINY (ATEEZ and fans were destined to meet).
I’m a yojaguru group and had no interest in namguru at all. I’m ashamed to say that Jimin is the only BTS member whose face and name match, but this is the group I’ve been interested in lately.
Their Pirate concept is cool and the best! I was really curious when I heard WONDERLAND!
Rank #9 – NCT 127
A long time ago, it was a dream for K-pop idols to be active in Japan, but now American debuts are the mainstream. NCT127 is the mainstream of activities in the United States, such as performing a national tour and appearing in the NY thanksgiving day parade. Still, it’s really cool that they tour in Japan.
They are EXO’s juniors, and when I first saw them, I thought they put out an amazing group. Not only singing but also dancing is monster class. It’s more like a dance group than an idol, and I think our abilities are the best among male groups. The performance is spectacular and will take your breath away.
The face is good for the time being. There are children like that, but Irichiru is all too good. As expected of an SM, each person’s ability is very high! I think it’s a well-balanced group where everyone complements each other with their strengths in dance, singing, and rapping. Also, each member is so unique that they don’t wear characters at all.
Rank #10 – SuperM
Because it is a gathering of monsters, all skills are on an order of magnitude. And the songs are all good. I was surprised by Baekhyun’s singing ability Everyone’s visuals are too good. Baek sings well, Taemin can do anything, Kai is macho, Ten-chan is cute, Taeyeon is handsome, Mark is a good rapper, and Lucas is the best.
