The Best K-Pop Groups

KPop groups list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of top K-Pop bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top K-Pop groups in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. KPop groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all k-pop bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest k-pop bands of all time, since the most famous k-pop artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best k-pop music.

You can click on the k-pop band names to see more information about that particular notable k-pop group. If they're near the top of the best k-pop artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top k-pop bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the k-pop band names themselves. And some might even appear on this list of the best k-pop dancers.

Use every item on this list to make your own, from Big Bang to Girl's Generation. Rock the vote (not the boat) by clicking thumbs up on your favorite items. Show your appreciation for items like EXO or 2NE1 by voting for them.

All important, significant and iconic names in k-pop music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new k-pop bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of k-pop, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into k-pop music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good k-pop bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent k-pop bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best k-pop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest k-pop musician ever?" However, even the best artists might have ended up on this list of k-pop idols who committed a crime.

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular k-pop bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote. If Korean rock music is what you like, check out this list of the best Korean rock bands and musicians.
