    For me;

    1. TVXQ impacts in Japan
    Till this date I think none kpop groups had come close to how relevant TVXQ there. Public and fandoms they scored both, they also open the door for KPOP group to promote there. Maybe BIGBANG just behind them.

    2. BIGBANG - public impact
    BIGBANG showed that, not only girl groups can be liked by public. Their impacts with digital are hard to top even by boygroups nowdays. They proved to have many hits and nation hits every comeback. Also each of their members are successful with solo and even won daesang; Taeyang and GD. The only group I can think will come close to them is BTS.

    3. PSY- the viral song (Oppa Gangnam Style)
    I don't think anyone can give that viral song like PSY did. It's worldwide viral song.

    4.Super Junior and SNSD
    They are known in SEA. They are like household names even for non kpop group there. Suju was the first kpop group to top on KKBOX chart #1 for 100 weeks

    5. BTS- worldwide
    Just like their ARMY bomb that shows globe, they really dominate the whole kpop scene especially in USA. The first group to have many entry in charts across the world. World domination I guess.

    6. BLACKPINK- internationally famous
    No other girl groups come close to them in international scene, top both BB chart. They also have insane amount of IG followers


    Feel free to add and discuss

    Lmao, I see what you did there with SuperM.
    I would say BP's success worldwide for a gg is also pretty hard to top, given they might not have reached their peak yet. A case can be made for Twice in Japan as well, their sales for a gg are gonna be hard to top imo and EXO in China, their popularity there is really impressive.

    SNSD's impact in Korea. They weren't just a popular group, they were literally part of Korean pop culture. You turn on TV you see SNSD, you listen to radio you hear SNSD, you try to buy anything you see SNSD, you watch the news you hear about SNSD CB or doing something abroad and so on. For a while SNSD was kpop.

    For me Girls’ Generation. It’s been a decade and no one even came close to their legacy yet.

    The shade you just created is as wide as the Amazon rain forest. LOL
    I'd like to add SJ's record in KKBOX Taiwan. #1 for more than 100weeks.

    Twice all time album sales record. Unless it is a girl group who is as huge as SNSD in korea korea while also as big as KARA in Japan, that record will never be shattered. No matter how popular internationally for girl groups, unfortunately it doesnt directly translate to almost insurmountable album sales like Twice does
