Here are the best K-pop groups of the 2010's decade, ranked by fans everywhere. From 2019 debuts to disbanded groups, this list of 2010s Kpop groups includes some of the most popular artists still active today. Before Blackpink, BTS, and Red Velvet topped the charts, the early decade belonged to Big Bang, 2NE1, and Girls' Generation. We also can't forget about the Produce 101 groups and lesser known nugu groups that have also found success during the 2010's decade.
