List Criteria: Artists who come from Korea and perform mostly pop music

K-pop groups list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. The genre of K-pop sometimes includes a range of musical styles - pop and rock, yes, but even metal and r&b. The main defining characteristics of K-Pop are the music's origins - South Korea - and the audiovisual elements that usually go with the songs. This list of the top K-pop groups in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date and current list. K-pop groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all the bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest K-pop bands of all time, since the most famous K-pop artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by the actual fans.

You can click on the K-pop band names to see more information about that particular notable group. If they're near the top of the best list, they should have at least some information available. All the top K-pop bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the band names themselves, and some might even appear on this list of the best k-pop dancers.

Use every item on this list to make your own, from Big Bang to Girl's Generation - from your favorite all-girl Korean bands to the best kpop boy bands. Rock the vote (not the boat) by clicking thumbs up on your favorite artists. Show your appreciation for artists like EXO or 2NE1 by voting for them.

This list answers the questions "who are the best k-pop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest k-pop musician ever?" However, even the best artists might have ended up on this list of k-pop idols who committed a crime.

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular K-pop bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
