List Rules Only K-pop idols who were not born in Korea.

Not every K-pop group is actually made up of Korean singers, and foreign K-pop artists who aren't Korean are becoming increasingly commonplace. Hailing from Japan, China, Thailand, Australia, and even the US, there are many non-Korean members in popular Kpop groups. Who are the best non-Korean K-pop idols? 

Some of the most famous non-Korean idols include Girls' Generation's Tiffany, f(x)'s Amber, BlackPink's Lisa, EXO's Lay, Got7's Jackson, and Wanna One's Lai Kuan-lin. JYP's Twice has four foreign members: Tzuyu, Mina, Momo, and Sana. K-pop features Chinese idols, Japanese idols, Taiwanese idols, and even Americans!
