Rookies Making Rounds: Latest K-Pop Groups Debuting In 2021

by Victoria Marian Belmis / Feb 08, 2021 02:45 AM EST

It's not all just glitz and glam in the K-Pop rookie world. The debut of a K-Pop group or artist does not only hinge on the amount of money backed on them by their company or the name and popularity of the company but even more so on the amount of work they are willing to put in in this cut-throat and competitive industry. 

The K-Pop group's debut will bring forth the initial range of what their group wants to achieve. Success will either follow suit immediately, later on or never at all. Some idols who have a low impact on their debuts either are lost forever or are late bloomers, like former K-Pop group; EXID. The number of K-Pop groups also is a big factor in terms of their success. 

In 2020, among the forty-three K-Pop idols who debuted, YG Entertainment's TREASURE and Play M Entertainment's Weeekly won the Rookie of the Year Award during the MAMA 2020. Drippin, GHOST9, LUCY, THE MIDNIGHT ROMANCE, STACY, TOO, and aespa, among others, also had very successful K-Pop debuts.

These debuts are considered successful usually due to the K-Pop group's hard work and hype from promotions, the reputation of the members, and the quality of their music videos and debut songs. 

As of writing this article, the first listings of the most K-Pop hyped artists to debut in 2021 this year. The K-Pop idols (both named and unnamed) are as follows:









9-unnamed rumored YG girl group
