Make sure to also check the best Kpop boy groups and the best Kpop solo artists.

Whether you're a fan of older K-pop groups, like S.E.S., Brown Eyed Girls, Girls' Generation, and T-ara, or into the new girl groups, like Twice, BlackPink, Loona, and Red Velvet, you can find them all here on this list of Korean girl groups. Disbanded groups, like Wonder Girls, 2NE1, 4Minute, and Sistar, and subunits, like Orange Caramel, TaeTiSeo, and AOA Cream, are also included.
