Most Famous Korean Bands | Most Popular Bands in Korea

The best Korean bands today are in this hub. They are the most famous Korean bands of all time. No really, jk. lol The list of most popular Korean band millions of fans are screaming about. Meet them all here!

Since the opening of the millennium KPop has invaded dominantly in South Korea then eventually around the world where it even reached the Billboard Hot 100. Since then, in 2007 particularly, started the booming of KPop industry in Korea when numerous of Korean boy bands and girl bands were launched. It seems a non-stop showdown ever.

What is KPop?

KPop stands for Korean Pop music that covers a wide variety of contemporary music including pop, hiphop, r&b, dance-pop, bubblegum-pop, house, electropop, and techno. Due to the big wave of success, Kpop became so popular not only in South Korea but also to other parts of the world. Korean bands performing in English and sometimes mix English and Korean, looks like the flavor will become our favorite for a while.


Top and Best Korean Bands

So who’s dominating the Kpop scene? Who are the most famous Korean Bands today? Who are the best and topping the charts? Who’d got the big scream in concerts? The following are the most famous and top Korean bands in the world today. Check them out…

SS501


SS501 (pronounced as Double-S 501 or Deo Beul E Seu Oh Gong Il in Korean) The first “S” stands for “Super”. The second “S” is an abbreviation for "Star". The number 5, 0, and 1 means "five members united as one forever". Ok, there’s really something behind every band name, huh :) The band is managed by DSP Entertainment, a famous entertainment media agency in Seoul.


SS501 band members are Kim HyungJun, Heo Young Saeng, Park Jung Min, Kim Kyu Jong and Kim Hyun Joong.


All SS501 members have their own individual radio show, Kim Kyu Jong, Park Jung Min and Heo Young Saeng hosted "Young Street" and Kim Hyung Jun currently hosts "Music High" How cool is that?! And oh, SS501 have lots of TV shows –reality shows and documentaries. SS as in super stars, eh :)



SS501 Trivia:

  • Kim Hyun Joong is the brother of Kim Ki Bum, a member of the famous band U-Kiss
  • Kim Hyun Joong was part of the cast for the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango, officially named Boys Over Flowers. He became famous for playing the role of Yoon Ji Hoo the rival of the main lead actor Gu Jun Pyo.


  • The group was launched in 2005 and still had concerts in Asia this 2010. But recently, the group’s leader, Kim Hyun Joong, signed a contract with KeyEast Entertainment and Park Jung Min has officially joined CNR Media to become a solo artist.



"Shinee Trend"
"Shinee Trend"

Shinee


The freshly launched five teen group, Shinee, are so young yet have already proven they’ve got what it takes to be on top of the music scene. With their awesome looks and lovely voice, they already won numerous awards plus they have marked Korea with their “Shinee Trend” for being great fashion icons of the new world. Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho and Taemin are making standing ovation everywhere.


See my hub about Shinee and meet all the alluring boys.



Big Bang
Big Bang

Big Bang


Definitely one of my favorite bands from Korea, Big Bang is oozing with talents. Big Bang is under YG Entertainment and has won big talent awards and such awards are really that Wow and Big! By the end of 2009, Big Bang became the most searched artist in South Korea. Time magazine described them as one of the "most promising" South Korean acts to venture into Japan while the Korea Times called them "the icons of Korean pop music. What I love most about this band is the way they adopt and revive few famous songs from renowned bands like This Love from Maroon 5…

2ne1

Read as “to anyone” or twenty-one, is a band of four lovely talented ladies namely, CL, Bom, Dara and Minzy. Thank goodness, their names are easy to remember. Their first hit was from the song Lollipop from the LG Cyon commercial. This group tops the Korean music chart, too. Some fans love to request English known songs from various English celebs like Rihanna and others.


Read more about the awesome 2ne1.

Super Junior


Super Junior is formed under SM Entertainment. It has 13 members, whoa! Basically, Super Junior is one of the largest boy bands in the world. The group consists of Leeteuk (leader), Heechul, Hankyung, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kibum and Kyuhyun. Apparently because it has too many members, the band was divided into sub-groups like Super Junior Happy, Super Junior T, Super Junior M, and Super Junior KRY.

U-Kiss
U-Kiss

U-Kiss


U-Kiss stands for “Ubiquitous Korean International (Idol) Super Star.” It is composed of seven members namely: Alexander, Soo Hyun, Ki Bum, Kiseop, Eli, Kevin and Dong Ho. U-Kiss starred in a variety show U-Kiss' Vampire premiered on January 22, 2010.

Shinhwa


Shinhwa is the Korean word for myth or legend. The group has six members, 3 vocalists and 3 rappers. Members are Eric Mun, Lee Min Woo, Kim Dong Wan, Shin Hye Sung, Jun Jin and Andy Lee. Shinhwa has achieved so much success and awards and they became the longest running boy band in South Korea because they’ve never been disbanded yet.


Shinhwa Trivia: A star was named after Shinhwa in 2005. In order to commemorate its launching, USC Korea, the official Korean partner USC (Universal Star Council), an American website that provides services for registering names for stars in the sky, offered a star to be named after them. The star is among the Aries constellation. Ironically, it matched the debut date of Shinhwa which falls on March 24, 1998. The star Shinhwa is the brightest among the more than 2 thousand stars with Korean names that can be seen with the naked eye. The star is best seen in November --wikipedia

TVXQ
TVXQ

TVXQ (DBSK)


An acronym for Tong Vfang Xien Qi, wonders what that means lol. In South Korea, they are known as Dong Bang Shin Gi, while in Japan as Tohoshinki. Their name means "The Rising Gods of the East." The band has five members, Xiah, U-Know, Hero, Max and Micky. This group likes singing acapella too. TVXQ became so popular that in 2008, they made it in the Guinness World Records for having the world's largest official fan club.


T-Max
T-Max

T-max


T-max was a all-male-trio band whose members were Sin Min Chul (vocalist), Kim Joon (rapper) and Pak Yun Hwa (vocalist). They performed the soundtrack of the hit manga series Boys Over Flowers, entitledParadise.” The group member, Kim Joon, was one of the lead casts of the said show. Park Yun Hwa left then Hanbi and Chanyang joined T-Max in 2010. Now it has four members.

FT Island


FT Island as in “Five Treasure Island” has five members, Lee Hongki (Lead singer), Lee Jae Jin (Bass, back up vocals and rap), Choi Jhong Hun (Leader, guitar and keyboard), Choi Min Hwan (Drums) and Song Seung Hyun (Guitar, back up vocals and rap). This band has won numerous awards and are recently under project with Warner Music Japan.

The Trax

Trax is a Korean rock band. I like rock once in a while. This band is one of the top screamo bands in Korea. This band had four members but soon they became only three. Trax stands for “tracks” and also stands for the first letter of each member's stage name (Typhoon of the Rose Attack on Xmas) Ow, isn’t it quite interesting how to learn making band names? Lol Wow, they rock!

Which would be the best Korean Band for you?

  • SS501
  • Shinee
  • Big Bang
  • 2ne1
  • Super Junior
  • U-Kiss
  • Shinhwa
  • TVXQ
  • T-max
  • FT Island
  • The Trax

What about 2AM,and F-Cuz (although not as popular but will be):D,


hottest 5 years ago

k-Boyband i think 2PM is the popular one right now,coz they top no 1 on oricon dvd chart(japan)when it first released,and i'm a hottest too...

for k-Girlband i think SNSD is the popular one,coz they were no 1 k-band in 2010(on KBS festival 2010)with the song OH! and they're popular in japan too,so i think SNSD is the popular one plus i'm a s?ne too...

[ hope i'm not being silly x( ]

DAHKSD 5 years ago

DUDE you know snsd is way more popular than 2ne1 right? how come their not in here?


smileyjunsu 5 years ago

I didn't voted because JYJ, which is for me is the best boyband, is not included. JYJ from TVXQ rules!!! I think they are the best because although SME banned their korean activities and AVEX also suspended them, they are still survive and do their best. Moreover, they already have had their world tour! Daebak!!!


not-so-obssessed 5 years ago

Well. I think, Super Junior dominates the Korean wave internationally. Let's say, other groups like 2PM has more fans than them NATIONALLY, but INTERNATIONALLY, Super Junior is No. 1. I'm not really convinced now that TVXQ still holds the No. 1 spot of having many fans.


Maica 5 years ago

I think SHINee is the best!


Amber 5 years ago

How come double S got only 12%? Come on Hyun Joong is enough for me to be convinced to vote for them, and the other members are that good looking, that took a lot out of me and the got only 12%, i don't know why im getting so worked up about it, at least the fans are still loyal and it was on the top, so..... Im satisfied. :-)anyong, i'm leaving, i gotta go to school.

UncreativeName 5 years ago

This is a REALLY, REALLY bad list. At least you described it really badly. These groups you mentioned are NOT, and I repeat, NOT the most popular/famous groups of all time. In fact most of them are not even that accomplished as singers. This is just a list of your favorite groups. Please reword that properly next time.

TVXQ, Super Junior and SNSD currently hold the spot for the most awards won in the Seoul Music Awards with 9 EACH. Big Bang come in second with 8. I do not understand how SS501 can be better than ANY of the 4 mentioned up top.

Ok...seriously people. Don't take this list so seriously, they don't have all the facts. Ok, some of these bands in the first place are only popular in S. Korea. I was definently expecting bands very much known now, and popular now.

Like for example,

Wondergirls,

SNSD,

Beast,

CNBlue,

And of course the older but still favorited groups like,

HOT,

S.E.S,

But I must say, why include Shinhwa without Baby vox, and etc. Too?

Can you please update your list?

Well...anyway, I still thankyou for somewhat help you were.

Yeah. You should update the list already.

SuperJunior,2pm, SNSD, KARA And Shinee should be listed more clearly. Not just on the top 10 list at the bottom of the whole thing. There is only boy bands that is listed clearly. SNSD is definitely the best female group. They are popular not only in Asia, but also in Europe and now America. Don't know about WOnder Girls though, i personally think their popularity is fading. :O

Paul Martin top radio DJ promoter 4 years ago

I have promoted Beatles, Stones, Zepeplin and many others on American radio in the 60's as a top DJ. My Son Mark Davis blows anyone away on guitar ! ASian bands are too efeminate in appearance to be hard core rockers ! Rockn'roll began and belongs to mostly American and British

bands ! They best potray the rugged, aggressive,high energy image that R & R is all about ! In asia bands get promoted because of their contacts rather than talent or appeal !

I have been in showbiz for over 50 years so I do know what I am talking about !


Marcy112 4 years ago

TVXQ without a doubt. The five boys make the best band ever in all aspects hands down
