Just like in Japan, Korean idols have also found endless fame in China! Despite certain groups having a good name in Korea, all their efforts are better received overseas. Check out the groups who succeeded far more in China rather than Korea!

T-ara



Without a doubt, everyone knows that T-ara have become the Korean queens of China. With multiple Chinese versions and singles released by them, T-ara have made a huge name for themselves in China. Collectively, the girls have held over 10+ showcases and concerts all throughout China. Let's not forget the Chinese billionaire Wang Sicong who paid T-ara to even perform at his birthday party. Plus their baidu cafe page has over 1 million members. What more do you need?


Two X




The girls of Two X kept busy in Korea but have since ventured over to China where they held various showcases and met with some success. They were once listed in China's top 50 girl group chart ranking and have an average following on their fancafe as well. They have currently recorded the Chinese version of their recent song "Over."


Timez



When you think of K-Pop groups in China, TimeZ may be the second to come to mind, right after T-ara. The boy groups consist of both Chinese and Korean members and their first release was "Hooray For Idols," a Chinese pop song. Since then the boys stayed busy overseas and recently came back with "Awaken," which was released in both Chinese and Korean. The boys have also made a slew of TV appearances in China as well, ranging from variety shows to dramas. 


UNIQ


Not only were UNIQ created by a Chinese company but they also contain Chinese members as well! With no language barriers in the way, UNIQ started off big by having both a Korean and Chinese version of their debut song "Falling in Love." The boys have done various promotions for beauty shops such as Mix-Box in China and they even ranked 27th on China's most popular Korean boy band chart. 


They even received their first music show award on CCTV's 'Global Chinese Music' program. Another cute fact is that they sing the song "Erase Your Little Sadness" for the Chinese version of the 'Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.'


ASTRO



Although the boys debuted just this year it hasn't stopped them from gaining an endless amount of popularity - especially overseas. Their 1st Season showcase was held across Asia and in Shanghai, China. Their growing popularity landed member Cha Eun Woo a role in Chinese drama and ASTRO were the only Korean act invited to the 'LeTV Entertainment Awards' in China this year.


SIX BOMB



While many were probably turned off by Six Bomb's last concept and MV it didn't stop them from gaining some attention from China! The ladies of Six Bomb had been selected as the promotional models for the Chinese mobile game 'Huibijeon.' Perhaps they will even release some Chinese singles soon?


BESTie



Just as it may come as a surprise to you, it was a surprise for girl group BESTie to discover they have an immense amount of popularity in China! Although they are not promoting in the Chinese market, their last single "Excuse Me" gained an enormous amount of views on China's largest video streaming site Tudou. Their representative also revealed, "Previously they placed at higher ranks on Chinese video website 'iQiyi' for the music video chart as well, earning much popularity in China." Member Uji was even known for competing for a spot on China's 'I Am A Singer' TV program.
