    Okay, dont get me wrong, but why are IU and BoA on the list???? Last time I checked they were solo artists, not girl groups.

    Either exclude solo artists or say top female acts.

    "Technically not a "girl group" but Sports Donga included solo artists as the panelists chose the artists."

    I know, but it's wrong. I can read you know. Sports Donga shouldn't have done so. Or changed the title to best female act.

    I'm glad KARA but KARA didn't become popular because of Japan. They became HUGE in  Korea first because Rock U, Honey, and Lupin. Then became STARDOM because of Mister (Original version) that was released in Korea first. After they became known as LEGENDS because of their world wide popularity and hits after hits in both Korea & Japan.  But in all seriousness if T-ara isn't on the list then this list is shitty and very low. T-ara was KPOP's hero in 2009-2012.

    GFriend and Twice? They are making waves, but being considered one of the best of the best is staying power. Will GFriend and Twice be able to hold on to their upward momentum for the next 5+ years? We don't know yet. They could both fall apart in 2 months and disband before even hitting the 2 year mark. What a stupid list. IU and BoA? Clearly girl groups. CLEARLY.

    lmfao but 2ne1, s.e.s, wonder girls all had long hiatuses. no group stays on top forever ! don't be so harsh twice are HUGE and are now being called the nation's girl group. Cheer up and TT are played everywhere nonstop. Don't fight change :)

    Uh I'm not being harsh at all. Nor am I fighting change. But just because you sell a boatload of albums in one year doesn't mean in year two you'll do as good. It only takes a couple scandals for a top tier group to be destroyed. That's why longevity is important, that's why it takes more than 1 year to be a best of all time group.

    Everyone knows being on the top isn't easy and likely to change, that's why longevity Doesn't matter. Lots of groups have been on top then sizzle out. That's the difference between being a really large and popular band vs being on top. SNSD, for example, are consistent. They're popular and on top. But this doesn't mean you can negate the influence twice has just because of their rookie status.

    No T-ara?? clearly some dislike towards T-ara! despite having trouble to make a list of 15 girl groups! that had to include IU.

    There was a vote and obviously t-ara didn't get enough votes. It's not allkpop's fault

    This list is questionable for 2 reasons. 1. Some of these groups are too new to even be considered for a list like this. 2. 2 of the "groups" mentioned aren't even groups! Unless there're clones out there I'm not aware of... XD
