It is undeniable that the Korean wave is developing strongly around the world. As a result, the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism conducted a new survey on how popular K-pop artists are in the world.
Recently, the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism announced the results of the above survey. The survey involved 4,679 people from 18 different countries.
Notably, BTS once again ranked No.1 and the group has topped this list since 2018.
15. Jimin (BTS)
Jimin is one of the most prominent artists in K-pop with a large fan base. Jimin also topped for weeks on the personal brand value chart, proving his unlimited charisma.
14. V (BTS)
Just like Jimin, with the rise of BTS, V also took over the world because of his handsomeness, personality and talent. Every time he appears at events, fans and netizens go crazy for his surreal handsomeness.
13. Super Junior
As one of the most prominent 2nd generation groups in Kpop, it is not difficult to see Super Junior’s name in this ranking.
GOT7 ranked 12th in this chart, proving their high reputation despite not being active as a group but only focusing on individual activities.
11. Jungkook (BTS)
BTS’ “golden maknae” cannot be excluded from this list because of his terrible popularity. Jungkook shows his stylishness when constantly reaching the top of the trend every time he appears. He can also make the items he uses sell out all over the world. And so, Jungkook was in 11th place, surpassing the names of many other groups.
10. G-Dragon (Bigbang)
G-Dragon comes in at 10th place with his great reputation in the group activities and in his personal life.
9. Girls’ Generation or SNSD
Referring to K-pop, we must mention the legendary girl group SNSD with hits that are loved by the public around the world.
Although Big Bang is no longer active with a full lineup, over the years, each member has made their own mark. In particular, the return of “Still Life” has shown how strong the influence of Big Bang is.
Although the group has not had any outstanding activities over the years, most of the members have their own activities, helping the group maintain its reputation.
Although PSY has not had many hot songs since New Face and Gentleman … but he is still a highly appreciated face after being famous around the world with his billion-view song. PSY is also said to be one of the successful artists when entering the fastidious US market.
4. Lisa (Blackpink)
Lisa is the only Blackpink member on the list that is not in the same group. Her individual activities once caused a global “fever”.
IU is one of the most successful solo artists in Kpop today. Although IU has always focused mainly on the Korean market, it is undeniable that the 12-year-old singer’s charm is brilliant throughout Asia.
Blackpink’s attraction in the world market cannot be denied when all 4 girls are the representative faces of 4 top luxury brands in the world. Not only that, their music products also resonate well around the world. Their first concert in North America in 2019 was so successful that tickets were sold out.
It’s no surprise that BTS tops the list. The reputation of the house group HYBE is not only limited to Korea or Asia, but is also recognized worldwide, especially in a difficult market like the US. BTS is also the group that received the Medal of Culture for outstanding contributions to Korean culture and economy.
