    The purpose of this thread is to appreciate our favs who have gone through so much and did not give up and make us proud.

    Ok, what achievements by your favs make them stand out more than any other group or soloist to you?

    Bigbang - they are not my favs and I love their music and having the best digitals of all time for a boy group worldwide is amazing. I mean they definitely deserve to be the kings of Kpop.

    Snsd
    - Most awarded Kpop girl group
    - Queens of Kpop in each and every way but personally the ability of all members to be successful in whatever they do stands out the most to me. I mean they are all queens and stand out individually wherever they are and that makes me such a proud Sone.
    - Taeyeon is very successful as a soloist and model
    - Yoona's music even sells better than most vocalists music. Her popularity is on another level.



    Exo
    - Quadruple million sellers and the fact that because of Exo, it's now very possible for a group to sell a million physical albums is so impressive. Exols are the best.
    - Most awarded Kpop boy group of all time.
    - The nation's boy group and nation's pick. Apparently according to Korea's president, Exo best represents Korea today. Honestly I can't believe he's said that.
    - Just like Snsd, the fact that every Exo member is growing as an individual makes me so proud. I think it's only Xiumin who hasn't found something serious to do except small acting roles out of CBX and Exo group activities.

    Baekhyun is good at variety shows.
    Suho is an actor and does musicals too.
    Sehun is a model/actor
    Kai is a model/actor
    DO is a serious actor
    Chanyeol is a model/actor/MC
    Chen is good at musicals
    Lay is successful as a soloist, actor, producer, song writer and commercial model And variety king. He's so impressive.

    That makes Exo stand out as a group among other groups to me.

    Red Velvet
    - They are friends with billboard. With every comeback, they are either #1, 2 or 3 on the world album chart. In fact they hold the most #1 billboard album charts among all Kpop groups. Very impressive.
    - Their music is so good.
    Red Velvet = good quality music LOL!


    Your turn, what makes your favs stand out more than other groups to you? Praise your favs such that whoever doesn't know them can learn something about them.

    Please try not to belittle other groups' achievements. Just talk about your favs and you can be biased all you want.

    B.A.P held the record as the K-pop act with the most No. 1s on Billboard's World Albums Chart for 2 years (2013/14) and reclaimed the title in 16.

    not sure about now. regardless almost all of their albums have made it to Billboard, including their debut album

    Big Bang and SNSD's contributions to the genre are immeasurable :p But also the sheer amount of daesangs EXO and SNSD have, EXO have 20+ and SNSD have the most for a gg/equal second (with Big Bang if I'm not wrong)

    iKON
    - Yunhyeong got a Nivea CF because of his predebut love for lip balm (yes this is an impressive achievement in my eyes. He's cute)
    Plus Nivea are loyal to all 7, even today.
    - Hanbin is credited in every iKON song released besides one that was gifted from GD.
    - Bobby won SMTM3
    - Monster rookies that won every rookie award.
    - Released everyone's favorite love song (My Type) that manages to climb charts every February, including this year. (it was a tough battle with Love Scenario)
    - Fastest group to go on a Dome tour.
    - Released a song that accumulated over 100 PAKs, a rare achievement for an idol group.
    - Released a song with the second most PAKs, behind IU with Leon. (making many people wonder what a PAK is :D)
    - Manage to stay pure and cute as hell. (Yes this is also an achievement)

    That's cool. I think I heard about billboard and BAP before and now I think Red Velvet is holding the title.

    I hope BAP can do it again in future. They should rise too. They have some pretty cool music. I love honeymoon though most people say it's substandard.

    Suju has played a Major role in promoting Kpop globally. It hurts when they are now called irrelevant.

    True and I think you are right. Snsd, Bigbang and Exo are a huge force in the growth of Kpop.

    Wow! Honestly I wanna check out Ikon now, and I'm so checking out that "my type" song that is "everyone's favorite love song" and it better be good because if it is, I'm definitely going to download it effective immediately.

    Oh and because of Ikon, I got to know what a PAK really means because I Stan red velvet and Bad boy battled with love scenario before those 100 PAKs happened on the charts. Everyone was talking about PAKs and that's how I got to know what it really means. I'd heard about them before though.

    also going to mention

    MyTeen's Xiheon. MyTeen isn't well known but Xiheon released a solo for a drama OST in 2017 before the group debuted. in fact, he's since released another drama OST track!

    maybe it's not the greatest achievement but considering the group hadn't debuted and he didn't have any backing (as in no history prior to debut; he hasn't been on any shows like Super Star K, etc.), i think it's pretty neat

    It's pretty cool and now I'm going to try and find out about that one too.

    This reminds me of Punch who hasn't officially debuted yet but has released some of the best Osts ever, one with Chen (every time in Descendants of the Sun) and another with Chanyeol ( Stay With Me in Goblin)

    I think it's a smart move. Btw both those osts by Punch have over 100 milloin views on YouTube I think.
