Based on the list of songs that are considered “masterpieces” voted by MelOn, top idol groups such as BLACKPINK, BTS, SNSD, TWICE… have fiercely competed for the title of the all-time best idol.
On August 27, MelOn released a list of Top 100 K-pop masterpieces of all time. To determine this result, MelOn asked 35 music critics and industry experts to name their picks, and compiled a list based on all their answers. The final result includes many hits of popular Kpop idols such as BTS, BLACKPINK, EXO, TWICE, SNSD…
However, according to The Seoul Shinmun’s YouTube channel, the list has some biases. The more mixed reactions a song gets, the lower the song’s ranking. Therefore, to compensate for this bias, The Seoul Shinmun has compiled a ranking of artists based on the number and digital score of songs listed by MelOn.
The remaining Kpop acts in the top 20:
7. Wonder Girls
10. Red Velvet
13. Seo Taiji & Boys
16. Lee Hyori
