Intro
Idols who are the only well-known member of their groups
We've all seen it before - one idol who outshines the other members of their respective groups in the public's eye. However, in which cases is it so severe that literally no other member is well-liked or even well-known? For example, in EXID's case, sure Hani outshines the others, but Solji is also quite the popular member. In FIESTAR, Cao Lu is definitely a leading variety star, but Yezi got her own fame from 'Unpretty Rapstar.' In AOA, Seolhyun is by far the most well-known and popular, but ChoA and Jimin are also quite big. In miss A's case, Suzy is definitely the most well-known, but the group itself has done relatively well and has been in the business for a while, so she is not the only well-known one. But sadly, there are cases where only one member is promoted out of the whole group in the agency's hopes that s/he will become big enough to be the next 'It-girl/boy.' They might not even have the funds to promote all of the members. So which idols are pretty much the ONLY known and promoted members of their groups? Check out the list!

    Is it bad that while scrolling down the list, I was mostly like "I don't know you", bc honestly, the only people from the list that I can match face to name and group are Zico, Nada and Hongki. As for Bohyung, Jota and Solbin, I only recognize the name and I'll only recognize it if you mention which group they're from. The rest I don't even know who they are.

    Author must be a newb to kpop because Bohyung is not the most well known member of SPICA (she's just the one that has been the most visible recently). In Korea Jiwon is the most recognizable member (although arguably Narae is more popular) and internationally, it's Kim Boa.
