The Korean entertainment industry is best known for churning out the best girl groups in the world. They usually have a tedious training process, narrowing down the number of girls who audition and assembling them to a group for a potential debut.

 

Apart from loving the gorgeous and talented girls, fans are fawning over their slick choreography and addictive music videos that will surely make you want to get up on your feet and dance.


In the past years, five Korean girl groups have been dominating the Hallyu wave. Scroll down and get to know them!  


BLACKPINK

This Korean girl group is composed of four beautiful and talented ladies, Jennie, Lisa, Rosé and Jisoo. They debuted when they released their single Boombayah. Since then, BLACKPINK has become a girl group to watch out for.


Despite being in a group, BLACKPINK also values individuality. Hence, they also have their own music to showcase each girl’s unique traits and talent. Jennie was the first member to release a solo effort.

With such a huge fanbase, it’s no wonder Solo became the most viewed video by a female K-pop solo artist in the first few hours of its release.

Just like other K-pop acts, TWICE originated from a reality show. They were part of the 2015 series Sixteen. After several tests and eliminations, the nine remaining girls were formed into a group which was soon dubbed as TWICE.


Just like any other group, this girl group also has a moniker for their dedicated fans. A follower of the girl group is a “Once.”


Red Velvet


Originally, Red velvet is composed of four members, Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, and Joy but after their debut, Yeri joined the group, taking the final tally to five.
