The first idols that come to mind of Korean netizens when they think of Kpop groups

When it comes to a certain Kpop group, Korean netizens think that these are the names that everyone thinks of first.

Depending on the lineup, the number of members can be more or less, but before becoming a fan or being a non-fan of the group, we usually only remember 1,2 typical names. Of course the center members will be remembered first, but there are also groups where the name ‘brand representative’ is not necessarily the center position. This means that the names that are easily remembered by Knet when it comes to a certain group are usually because that idol will have to have a different temperament, outstanding talent or simply outstanding visuals, different to be confused with anyone.

Most of those idols will also represent their group vibe and concept. Recently on the Pann forum, Korean netizens called out the names of the people that came to their mind first in some typical Kpop groups. Let’s see if Knet’s thoughts are the same as yours.

(Note: This is the opinion of many Korean netizens, not representing 100% of Knet or international fans)

Although there are many different thoughts, this list still received a lot of approval from Korean netizens. Most of the listed names are considered the ‘representative member’ of each Kpop group. However, there are also some groups that still make Knets argue because they can’t choose between 2 members. These groups include EXO, NCT and Oh My Girl. For EXO, it’s between Kai and Baekhyun, for NCT it’s between Taeyong and Jaehyun, and for Oh My Girl, it’s between Arin and YooA.

I agree with other groups, but shouldn’t EXO be Kai and for NCT, I thought it’s supposed to be Taeyong?

Regarding popularity, I agree with this post. I’m not saying they’re the members that the companies are pushing, but they’re definitely the most popular members.

Actually NCT ​​is Taeyong and Oh My Girl is YooA.

I totally agree with this list!

I think EXO must be Kai!

As for Oh My Girl, if it was before, it would have been YooA, but now it seems to be Arin.

For BTS, it is also hard to choose between V and Jungkook!

Kai in EXO would be more appropriate.

Of course it should be Jaehyun! Many people immediately think of Jaehyun when talking about NCT.

Well, the new generation groups all have famous members that no one can deny, such as Ryujin, Juyeon, Soobin, Karina.

Some comments from Knets:
