    This is actually a hard question bcs even if most members of a group don’t have stage presence, at least one member would (e.g Blackpink with Jennie, Momoland with JooE, Nancy and Yeonwoo).

    So generally speaking,
    Girl group: Red Velvet
    Boy group: Wanna One

    don’t come for me sisters i mentioned my own bias up there (w1)

    Red Velvet. I love their music, but their live stages are boring to watch. :( It looks like they don't want to be there which makes me sad.

    blackpink but that’s probably because they’re tired of performing the same four songs.

    Jennie stands out the most, but I honestly think that all 4 members of BLACKPINK have a powerful stage presence

    Having seen them live, I gotta say red velvet. I love them but they looked like they weren't really that interested, especially in the russian roulette performance. Seulgi and Irene did better in their collab stage (they performed greedy by ariana grande?).

    Wouldn't it be easier to name the few groups that do have stage presence? Because most groups don't have it.
    Among the well known groups, I agree with others that Red velvet don't have it.

    • Red Velvet
    • EXO with the exception of Kai and occasionally Baekhyun
    • Blackpink with the exception of Jennie (who has presence because she's very striking but not because I'm engaged with anything or how she's singing/rapping)
    • Everyone in NCT not named Lucas/Ten/Taeyong/Mark
    • Everyone in iKON not named Bobby
    • Everyone in Winner not named Mino
    • Most of Twice except for the girl who gets most of the lines, Momo (the main dancer, right?) and to some extent Jeongyeon.

    I agree with Red Velvet. They kinda just look like they have to do it, not like they're enjoying it.

    Some of Red Velvet’s live stages were really good, notably their Dumb Dumb comeback stage and Happiness era stages. But yeah apart from that they’re quite boring I usually skip the live stages

    I have seen too few performances of all the groups, to say what groups don't have stage presence and who have.

    I did notice though, that when TWICE did a GFriend song, and when GFriend did a TWICE song, that GFriend did 'Like Ooh Aah' better and more impressive than TWICE themselves: GFriend made me notice the song as well as themselves.
    While TWICE's performances of GFriend and SNSD songs made me feel like something was off or missing.

    But that was a year or 2 ago, very likely that TWICE have improved as well in the meantime.

    Ok, I'm not gonna say that people should think otherwise, but personally I disagree with Red Velvet not having stage presence.

    People mistake their expressions for what it often really is, namely a stage act:
    just like the smiling and winking part of the act of idol groups is, and the all-swagger attitude of some groups a stage act is, so is also the cool, 'cold bitch face' just another stage act that groups can show.
    (they're also not the only ones, in the times when cute groups were the trend, JYP ordered Miss A not to smile for performances, to differentiate them).

    That their unemotional, cold attitude in some performances is just a stage act, becomes evident when you see their music show encore videos and post-concert goodbye scenes where all the groups mingle: you can see RV really enjoy being there, they're often the ones with the most interactions with other groups and the audience and they often stay the longest on encores (just watch their Mamamoo and SNSD encore stages).


    As examples that Red Velvet have stage presence, and that you can show stage presence without smiling brightly constantly or acting all 'hiphop swag'-like, here's some videos of them in different, various situations:

    a compilation of their Bad Boy stage performances all-in-1:


    Their impressive Sugarman performance:


    Seulgi and Irene - Greedy:


    The epic 'Move Like Jagger' collaboration with WINNER, GOT7, Red Velvet and Lovelyz:


    I found them all a joy to watch (no pun intended :D), just like a lot of their other varying performances and dance practices.

    To me, stage presence isn't about smiling brightly or being a badass 'hiphop swag' wannabe on stage, but about charisma and confidence.

    If Red Velvet have shown anything, then it's how confident they are and can be on stage.

    someone's gonna fight me probably

    but Seventeen. not so much that they have no stage presence but when i saw them live they all had... like... the same amount? and no one really stood out? like the performance was good but no one stood out at all. i saw them live early after their debut so i think it's likely changed.

    CLC except for Seungyeon
    Blackpink
    Red Velvet except Seulgi
    Most of NCT. I get backup dancer vibes from most of them.

    99% of those low-mid level boy groups
