I hope they don't just feature prominent K-Pop groups today for clicks. Groups and acts like Seo Taiji, H.O.T, S.E.S, Sechs Kies, Fin.K.L, Shinhwa, g.o.d, DBSK, Super Junior, Big Bang, SNSD, Wonder Girls, and 2NE1 were just as instrumental in growth of K-Pop as the new groups today. I also hope the docuseries reminds people that PSY was a big factor in K-Pop's popularity overseas.
