Updated October 20, 2020 620.4k votes 53.4k voters 272.2k views132 items

Here are the best Kpop girl groups of all time, including current Kpop groups making the best K-pop songs of 2019. There are so many good Korean girl groups now, and Kpop agencies, like YG, JYP, and S.M., have a lot of competition from smaller yet popular South Korean entertainment companies, like Fantagio, Pledis, and Jellyfish. Out of all the artists found here, which are the best K-pop girl groups? 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.

Vote up the best K-pop girl groups you find the most talented. Feel free to any underrated female groups missing from this list.
