Here are all the K-pop groups under SM Entertainment, ranked by fans everywhere. Founded in 1995 by record producer Lee Soo-man, SM Entertainment is considered one of the "Big 3" agencies in the Korean music industry, largely due to the success of boy group H.O.T. and girl group S.E.S. Since then, SM formed several other popular Kpop groups, including Girls' Generation, Red Velvet, EXO, Super Junior, SHINee, and their new boy group NCT.

Vote up your favorite current and former SM groups, and check out their entire roster, which includes solo artists.
