TOP 50 most searched female Kpop idols on Japanese Youtube in 2021: Only 8 members of TWICE are called, Lisa (BLACKPINK) enters the top 10

Besides the Korean market, Kpop idols also always want to develop and become famous in other major music markets. One of them is Japan – the dream of every K-pop entertainment company because of the ‘huge’ revenue from albums or concerts, as well as a dedicated, mature, and invested fan base for their idols..

However, Japan is also a very difficult market to conquer, and not all Kpop idols are famous in this country. Whenever it comes to the popularity of a Kpop idol in countries around the world, many netizens will immediately look up whether they are popular in Japan.

In fact, there are many factors and tools to evaluate an idol’s popularity, but statistics related to searches on Google (mainly viewing information and images) and Youtube (watched video) are always considered the most objective and popular. Most recently, a post by Korean netizens has compiled the TOP 50 most searched female Kpop idols on Youtube in 2021 up to the present time.

Thus, the results are not too surprising when Sana (TWICE) is currently leading the Japanese YouTube search rankings in 2021 up to now. However, we also have to admit that the home advantage for Sana is only partly because inherently not all Japanese K-pop idols can rank high in charts like this. Mainly to say, Sana is attractive and very popular, so she has received the attention of the cherry public.

On the other hand, TWICE is currently the most popular K-pop girl group in Japan, and the truth is that they have 8/9 members making it to the TOP 20. However, only member Chaeyoung can’t make it to the TOP 50. Many people are confused and wonder if the female idol’s influence is declining in Japan?

What is your favorite female idol ranked in the top 50?  Whose ranking surprised you the most? Please share your opinion.
