    #1 I.O.I. The group emerged from the roster of Korea’s 101 reality show talents produced in 2016. After a series of powerful performances and hit songs like “Whatta Man”, “Dream Girls” and “Very very very”, I.O.I. became Korea’s household K-Pop favorite that rippled and resounded throughout the year but unfortunately disbanding became an issue. And members have begun to join other K-Pop groups, I.O.I. unquestionably have left an indelible mark in the K-Pop music history.

    Glad to see K.A.R.D on the list! I loved their debut song Oh Nana, and the concept of revealing hidden members over time is interesting. Bulldok was quite good, too.

    I've been meaning to check out KNK, Bolbbalgan and Pentagon, too. This gives me more reason to do so!

        Thanks! It's also good to see I.O.I up there, considering they disbanded. I enjoyed Neomu a lot; it was the kind of repetitive song that I didn't mind listening to.

        I'm interested in KNK 'cuz I heard they attended a BTS concert and are fans of them. I've been hearing about Bolbbalgan and Pentagon for a while, too, so my interest is piqued.

        I tried BlackPink out, but they sound too much like 2NE1 for me. Lisa's super pretty though. I hope they eventually find their own sound.

          I also find Lisa so glam and pretty. Can't help staring at her whenever I see her on posters and ads.

            Exactly! Even at a glance, she just stands out.

                    sybertanne : Exactly! Also, considering this list only contains rookies, I think that's because it's only for rookies. That's why APink isn't here-

                      APink will get their break one day, They just need more exposure to be rookies themselves.
