    If there's one thing I've noticed a lot in girl groups, it's that their official visual is usually a sub vocalist, or some sort of rapper.

    The only girls that spring to mind for me are:
    - Mamamoo's Solar (Main Vocal, but people argue that the official visual is Moonbyul)
    - Girl's Day Minah (Main Vocal, was listed as the official visual at debut but apparently it's changed to Yura)
    - f(x)'s Krystal (Lead Vocal)
    - Miss A's Suzy (Lead Vocal)
    - BlackPink's Jisoo (Lead Vocal)

    Do you guys know anymore?

    Great list, but EXID's official visual is Jeonghwa (sub vocal), OMG's is Jiho (sub vocal), Gugudan's is Hana (sub vocal), Ladies' Code was RiSe (sub vocal/rapper). :)

    Also I think April's Naeun is just a vocalist on their profile at least, and Jiyeon has never been referred to as a lead vocalist within T-ara OT6.

    Yes, but Nayeon is also the Face of the Group, and is considered top visual with Tzuyu

    We're talking about official positions within the group though. I think Nayeon is pretty too (along with Sana and Mina), and I definitely see her as the face/center of the group, but Tzuyu is listed as the official visual.

    I dont know where you got that information.......... JYP never stating that Tzuyu is the official visual............. Yoona is called a center/visual of SNSD... but if you look at Twice, Nayeon is the true center of Twice...... in korea, center=visual.....
    In Twice there's 3 front line of Visual... Nayeon (S.K), Sana (JPN), Tzuyu (TAIWAN)... the three of them have the most number of fans, even Sana's blanket merch is the first one that got sold out than Tzuyu....
    You can't justify Tzuyu as the official visual.......

    Actually, Tzuyu IS listed as the official visual at their profile....
    Visual and center is not the same thing.

    Somi was the center of I.O.I, but did that mean she was considered the visual? No.

    Believe it or not, the visual position has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of fans one member has. Hyorin was easily the most popular member of Sistar, but she wasn't the visual. Taeyeon is arguably the most popular member of SNSD, but she's not the visual. SinB is much more popular than Sowon in GFriend, but she's not the official visual.

    Didn't Suzy become the Main Vocalist eventually?
    Solar and Moonbyul are both listed as visuals ^^
    And in someone else's post, Pinky is only a sub-vocalist
    Nayeon and Hani are considered visuals but their official position is Centre/Face of the Group which isn't the same thing.

    Anyway, my contributions
    PRISTIN's Roa and Xiyeon are also Lead Vocalists (yes, PRISTIN have 3 official visuals. idk if any other girl group has this many?)

    True. Besides, Tzuyu is getting WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more promotional stuff on photo shoots and CF's. She is the one we see the most in group CF's.

    Here is one I want to add since there are others that were mentioned already. That is AOA's Hyejeong is the group's visual and she is also the group's lead vocalist.

    Mamamoo doesn't really bother with these categories, do they? Other people impose them but they themselves don't call themselves 'main vocalist' or 'sub vocalist' or whatever. Solar's the leader of the group obviously but Wheein, Hwasa and her are on the same level in terms of how much they get to sing with Hwasa also getting to rap with Moonbyul when possible. And now, with Paint Me, they all vocalists, lol.

    Sunhwa was the visual of Secret. Now that she's gone im pretty sure Hyosung took over the visual spot. She is also the lead vocal, main dancer and leader
