So it is not difficult to understand when compared to ballad songs of solo artists, Kpop idol groups are somewhat ‘underdogs’.  If the Kpop idol groups have songs that make it to the chart below, it proves that their songs have really become national hits in terms of both popularity and real achievement.

 The top Kpop idol groups of 3rd generation are present, but where is EXO?

 After seeing the chart, many people have to acknowledge that the influence of TWICE, BTS and BLACKPINK’s songs is very strong.  The songs of these 3rd gen idol groups are not only capable of “defeating” the ‘ballads’ on the chart, but also could record many downloads and streams on Melon.

 However, one thing that makes netizens wonder is the total absence of EXO – the famous group of 3rd gen and is known as opening the golden age for Kpop this generation.  However, in the top 100, the SM male group did not appear with any song, including the song that is considered the ‘national hit’ -‘Growl’ (released in 2012).

 Some netizen comments about Kpop idols in the chart:

 – Wow, TWICE is still really popular.  They have lots of hits!

 – TWICE, BTS and BLACKPINK are awesome!

 – Wanna One is very good, they still entered this chart with ‘Energetic’.

 – But why isn’t there EXO?

 – Momoland is included too.

 – YG groups are all there.

 – Wow, but GFriend is really good too. I did not expect them to have 2 songs included in this chart.

 – TWICE has 4 songs on the chart.

 – ‘Spring Day’ is a wall.


 – ‘Spring Day’ is so amazing.  The best song of Kpop idols in this decade.

 – Doesn’t EXO have ‘Growl’?  Why don’t 100 Melon’s songs have any of EXO’s songs?

 Does your favorite group have a song in the chart?  Are you surprised by the appearance or absence of a Kpop idol group?  Please share your opinion.
