SNSD was picked as the “best girl group ever” in a TV audience poll conducted by KBS 2TV “Generation Empathy Saturday” on Feb. 5th.
Under a segment called “Ranking! Old and New,” the show let its viewers cast their vote for the “Top 10 Best Girl Group Ever in K-Pop Industry.” SNSD easily ranked atop the list, showing once again the nine-member girl group’s ever-growing and dedicated fan base in and out of the country.
Here’s the top 10: #1 SNSD; #2 Fin.K.L; #3 Wonder Girls; #4 S.E.S; #5 KARA; #6 2NE1; #7 Brown Eyed Girls; #8 Secret; #9 f(x); #10 Baby V.O.X.
It’s quite impressive, however, to see Fin.K.L rank right behind SNSD in the poll as it’s been more than 10 years since their debut. Fin.K.L is a four-member girl group that featured pop diva Lee Hyori as one of their members. They were one of the first girl groups to debut in the K-Pop scene and had a huge following in the late 90s to early 2000s, alongside other girl groups such as S.E.S. and Baby V.O.X, who each stood at #4 and #10 in this ranking as well.
The list does look like a pretty legit reflection of the best girl groups to have debuted in Korea over the past 15 years or so. It covers pretty much all the major girl groups that’s made a splash in the industry, but to be honest with you, in my humble opinion, old-school hip-hop girl group DIVA deserves better recognition and a spot on this list as well. Who’s your favorite girl group?
So surprising that BBV is in the list instead on the #10, but still in the Top 10!!
BBV era was passed for years but still being LOVED until now..
Big claps for BBV
