Top 30 male idols with the highest number of Unique Listeners Melon in history: BTS is overwhelmingly leading, the only NCT unit in the top is not NCT Dream

Gen 2 and 3 idols still dominate this list because not only the group but also some solo idols have impressive figures.

Anyone interested in the Korean music industry must have heard of the concept of Unique Listeners (unique users, or ULs for short) on the Melon chart once. Unlike the amount of streaming that can be counted multiple times for the same account, with Unique Listeners, no matter how much an account listens to a certain song over and over, it will still only be counted as one ULs unit. For this reason, while streaming volume reflects fandom power, Unique Listeners are considered the most accurate measure of the public popularity of any artist or song.

Top 30 male idols with the highest number of Unique Listeners Melon

Recently, Korean netizens have compiled and shared a ranking of 30 male idols (both idol groups and solo idols) with the highest number of Unique Listeners on Melon in Kpop history. This ranking also mentions many other factors including cumulative streaming, most streamed songs and songs with the most Unique Listeners by each artist. However, the key factor that determines their rankings is the total number of Unique Listeners they have in their careers, thereby showing which male artists have the highest public recognition on Melon.
