On an online community site, one user uploaded a chart on the representative of K-pop in the past 10 years.
The chart is from 2007 to 2017 with 3 idol groups for each year, indicating that they were top 3 best representatives of K-Pop in those particular and respective years. The chart wasn't made directly by the user but rather, found from another site in which the user shared with the community.
The chart goes as the following:
2008 - Wonder Girls, Big Bang, Girls' Generation
2009 - Girls' Generation, Big Bang, 2PM
2010 - Girls' Generation, 2PM, KARA
2011 - Girls' Generation, Big Bang, 2PM
2012 - Girls' Generation, Big Bang, SISTAR
2013 - EXO, Girls' Generation, SISTAR
2014 - Girls' Generation, SISTAR, EXO
2015 - Big Bang, Girls' Generation, SISTAR
2016 - TWICE, EXO, Girls' Generation
Since the post, many fans and netizens took interest in the representative chart to discuss who should or shouldn't have been included. Some comments read, "The reason TVXQ wasn't included was that the chart starts from 2007, isn't it?", "Since debut, it seems like only the rivals change for Big Bang", "Elementary kids these days are really underestimating Girls' Generation", "I'm not a fan of any group but there's definitely an age gap. I heard there are a lot of young/elementary users these days but if you're around my age, you know Girls' Generation was on the peak especially during their 'Gee' era", and much more.
Do you agree with the chart?
