    Of the ones I'm familiar with I think these 11 are the best.
    (no specific order)
    Mamamoo
    Solar

    Wheein

    Hwasa


    Gugudan
    Haebin

    Sejeong


    Cosmic Girls
    Yeonjung


    Dreamcatcher
    Siyeon


    Red Velvet
    Wendy


    Gfriend
    Yuju


    Oh My Girl
    Seunghee


    Pristin
    Sungyeon


    Who are some vocals that you think are just to great to not promote/talk about/mention?

    If anyone have newer videos of Wendy, Wheein and Yuju it would be much appreciated.

    I prefer Mamamoo and Dreamcatcher (so criminally underrated!!!) and I think they're uber-talented girls, better than many bigger performers nowadays.

    But I gotta say, I'm pretty convinced Red Velvet's Wendy is head and shoulders above every single other 3rd Gen female vocalist.

    But also. It's not really surprising? SM is known for their powerhouse vocalists, they have at least one in every group they put out (...maybe not NCT? I don't really listen to NCT). All 5 of DBSK boys, SuJu main vocalists, SNSD's TaeTiSeo, Exo's main vocalists... SM's strategy heavily depends on vocal dominance, while their rappers on the other hand....

    I think you're right. Wendy isn't my favourite vocalist (I like her but not my favorite) but I can't deny how good she is.
    If I had to rank them it would probably be something like this:
    Wendy
    Solar
    Haebin/Sejeong/Yeonjung
    Siyeon
    Wheein
    Yuju
    Hwasa
    Seunghee
    Seungyeon (haven't heard anything recent from her tho (because Plediz) and she is only sixteen in that video)

    Thought about adding her but decided to go with only GGs that debuted 2104 and forward (was afraid I would forget to many otherwise).

    As a casual Mamamoo listener and not a hard stan who's heard EVERYTHING they've put out I might not be right in my assesments but from what I've heard I'd say Wheein is actually a little better than Solar, tho Solar is definitely a vocal powerhouse in her own right.

    Also Siyeon is kinda hard for me to place. I was really surprised with her Speechless performance, I knew she was good but didn't expect her to be this good. I love a lot of Dreamcatcher's songs but evidently they're not doing nearly enough to showcase her vocal talents. Maybe, maybe she could be able to outsing Gugudan girls, but maybe not. There's just not enough material to truly objectively judge her talents.

    I hope she does at least more covers in the future. Speechless was beautiful <3

    I agree! The versatility in wheein's voice is mad, she can do so much with her voice that she deserves more recognition than she gets. She is literally the backbone when it comes to the groups songs, I'm glad the members themselves basically class her as main vocal.

    Thank you! Gugudan is one of the best vocal groups out there and no list would be complete without them. Haebin deserves more attention, both by netz and Jellyfish (give her more lines!). At least she's raking in OSTs.

    Between Us is such an underrated Bop and your right her voice is really beautiful in it. I'll confess that I never paid much attention to Laboum (probably should) but I've always liked that song.

    If you like cute concepts, here are some great songs



    If you like more serious songs like Between Us, these are great

    I'm a casual fan of Mamamoo and always thought Solar was better but I might be wrong. Both are amazing either way.

    I was this close to put Siyeon in shared third with the other three but, as you said, she hasn't been able to showcase what she's really capable of. Dreamcatcher focuses more on dance and she was oddly eliminated in the first round of Masked Singer (she was definitely better than her opponent) and wasn't able to show much there either. Based on her Speechless performance alone she deserves to be higher than I placed her but I need to hear just a little bit more from her first.
    More covers and perhaps a solo song would be great:).

    I'm actually leaning towards the idea that Sejeong has surpassed Yeonjung. During ioi Yeonjung was the better between the two of them but I think Sejeong has developed more than her. Both are, however, better now than they were back then.

    I came across that Vlive when I was creating this thread, she sing really beautifully. Do you know any solo stages or similar from 2018 or 2019?

    Your ranking is good but I don't completely agree with it. You're underestimating the Gugudan girls!
