K-Pop Idols who found fame by starting on YouTube
We all know the classic stories of idols either being picked off the streets, auditioning at a talent agency and training for years or even finding their fame through television programs. However, there are some idols who pulled a real Justin Bieber and found their claim to fame through the beloved video sharing website YouTube. Without YouTube, it would be a pretty K-Pop-less world and some of these stars wouldn't be gracing the stage today! Check out who rose to the top after their humble YouTube debut.

Allkpop is over.

just because you uploaded stuff on youtube doesnt mean that you found fame by starting out on youtube. None of them became famous via youtube. None of them were casted into agencies or on tv-shows because of youtube.

Look at the title. This article highlights the idols who've found fame BY STARTING ON YOUTUBE.

hiroonakamura lilwinster2k Wednesday, March 1, 2017

the way they have structured the sentence, it instead means that they found fame due to starting on youtube.

It's not the way that they have structured the sentence. It's the way that you misinterpreted it.

Doesn't matter how you read the title it still means kpop idols who became famous because of youtube... they did not become popular because of these youtube videos they uploaded though.

hiroonakamura lilwinster2k Thursday, March 2, 2017

nope. by starting out on youtube, they found fame....that's what the headline literally says. But the fact is, being on youtube had nothing to do with them gaining fame (most of them)
