KPOP Groups where one member overshadowed the others

misc.
The great thing about K-Pop groups is that there are many members with individual talents and skills for fans to pick their favorites. But there are a few K-Pop groups with one member that gets the majority of attention and tends to overshadow the rest of the team. Here are some K-pop groups where one member overshadowed their fellow members.

miss A's Suzy


4minute's HyunA


Gugudan's Kim Se Jung



Block B's Zico




AOA's Seolhyun



ASTRO's Cha Eun Woo



Turbo's Kim Jong Kook


EXID's Hani


Wanna One's Kang Daniel



LABOUM's Solbin



DIA's Jung Chae Yeon


MOMOLAND's JooE




What are some other groups that have one overshadowing member compared to the others?

I don't think Hani overshadows EXID. LE is pretty famous for being a rapper and a composer.

Solji is pretty known for her voice. She often wins a lot in music shows.

Also, EXID maybe popular because of Hani fancam but it maintained its popularity because of Solji winning King of Masked Singer, proving her singing skills. And when people knew it was LE who composes for the group .. it was no longer a Hani show.

I just wanted to ask, have you EVER did some research in SK boards popularity poll for EXID instead of checking on YouTube views and gauging them? In SK, EXID popularity is still unbeatable and LE is no where close. Hani is popular with fancams and other videos yes, but I’m not like those idiots that only gauge views from YouTube. That’s like some idiots gauging how popular an mv is =/=digital sales. My point is Hani is still popular and even if LE is second, she is still no where close to the popular of how Hani is doing. Even the viewer ratings dropped when Hani did not appeared with the other members in Weekly idol and that’s saying a lot

Yes. Nancy is by far the most popular and I had say Yeonwoo is 2nd now bc NanWoo (aka Yeonwoo x Nancy ship) got really popular and her fancam always soars. I had say Jooe is 3rd (in term of how much fans she has).

All of Sistar was very popular. Bora and Dasom were known for being very pretty and Soyu was know for her collaborations. Hyorin got the most lines in songs but that doesn't mean she was overshadowing the members.

No not really. K-media always mention Jin. RM gets mention a lot in western media and recently getting a lot of attention from K-media too. And of course the maknae mainly within the fandom. Yoongi is recently getting attention with his fan cam video of Seesaw. Dont really see a lot of hoseok within the fandom but I see it everyday in my twitter tl. They are appreciated not exactly equally but some are little bit appreciated more for sure. Army's now are equally appreciating all members so that's good.

Nancy overshadows in Momoland. JooE just helped boost the group's popularity with her charisma and funny Tropicana commercials, but ultimately, Merries favor Nancy (and maybe Yeonwoo).

- Seolhyun ? Yes she is the most popular member but Choa and Jimin were also very popular.

- Jooe may get the CF's but Nancy and Yeonwoo seem to be really popular.

- Hani is the most popular member but Solji and LE are all well known and respected.

I to this day still think that JYP choosing to push Suzy as much as he did was a mistake. The Miss A members were super talented and he could have had a lot more success for all of them if he had tried.

Everyone in Wanna One is insanely popular, though. There's no doubt that Daniel is the most popular among them so he gets the most of the attention plus he's also the center but he's not really "overshadowing" the members. The other members also get a ton of attention especially Minhyun, Ong, Jihoon etc.

well i know some of these are true dont forget black pink jennie , 2ne1 cl , snsd yoona ,fx krystal or sulli , red velvet irene or joy, twice tzuyu or nayeon or mina etc the list goes on man. Everytime a member overshadows others members because the public favors this certain member or the company pays more attention to them leads to disbandment or having disagreement between better yet forming rivalries against one another .They should stop that and at least give each member a chance because everyone is unique in their own way and share the amount of love from their fans .

basically it’s that one member that goes on Variety shows aka the “face of the group”. Idk why that concept exists but it does, for variety show appearances that doesn’t involve the entire group, the company or show always sends the same 1 or 2 members. The point is that they’re suppose to represent the group and bring attention to them but I think more often than not, it creates a Beyoncé/destiny’s Child effect where you only know that one member.

JooE is popular because of her meme that makes up her “personality” I can name you several members in Loona and Izone that has the same energy and more charismatic as her. In polls, Nancy still wins. Hani overshadows every members big time.

it isnt exactly false. Some of the examples are very accurate. Suzy and hyuna overshadowed the other members of the group even when they were active. the exemple i dont really get is jooe, she is probably the face of the group, because of her personality but she doesnt get all the attention.

And look what happened to them all... They either disbanded earlier than they should have or never reached their true potential because the company always pushes that one damn member in your face.
