Currently, there are a little over one-hundred K-pop groups that are active. Among those groups, only a plethora is considered immensely popular, and within those lines, there are only a handful of groups who have reached over 100,000,000 in streams or 2,500,000 downloads in their releases. 

Those elite few who are part of the K-pop groups who have reached 250,000 are dubbed platinum-certified.

Among those lucky K-pop groups to be part of the platinum-certified club, there are seven active groups that are female. These female K-pop groups can be considered as one of the most successful in South Korea and the world. 

With that, here are seven K-pop girl groups who are part of the platinum club, albeit either certified platinum in streaming and/or platinum-certified in downloads:

RBW's MAMAMOO (debuted in 2014) - Currently, the members have widely successful solo careers, but they have two songs which have reached platinum certification as a group. 

MAMAMOO's released a song in March of 2018 entitled "Starry Night," and it was dubbed a Platinum streaming certification and Platinum download certification after eight months and 16 months of its release, respectively.

The second song that the group got a certified Platinum for streams is "HIP" which was released in 2019. The song got this title last year, 12 months after being dropped.

SM Entertainment's Red Velvet (debuted in 2014) - Red Velvet, the darlings of SM Entertainment, similarly to MAMAMOO, also have two songs that are platinum-certified.

Red Velvet's songs, "Bad Boy" and "Psycho," released in 2018 and 2019, respectively received certified Platinums. The former song got a Platinum download certification 27 months after its release, and the latter song got it only within 11 months of its release.

JYP Entertainment's TWICE (debuted in 2015) - JYP Entertainment's premiere third-gen K-pop group, TWICE, has gotten certified platinum with three of their songs and seven of their albums.

"Dance The Night Away," "What is Love," and "Yes or Yes" all got Platinum certifications both in streaming and in downloads.

WM Entertainment's Oh My Girl (debuted in 2015) - WM Entertainment's Oh My Girl has had a sudden resurgence in popularity in recent times. 

Their song entitled "Nonstop" has been given a Platinum streaming certification less than a year after its release. From that, Oh My Girl has not looked back and is continuing to dominate as one of the most popular K-pop girl groups today.

MLD Entertainment's MOMOLAND (debuted in 2016) - Almost a world-wide hit back in 2018 with their song "BBoom BBoom," MOMOLAND has garnered a huge following in South Korea.

Justifiably, "BBoom BBoom" has gotten both Platinum certifications in streaming and in downloads.

YG Entertainment's BLACKPINK (debuted in 2016) - The most popular girl group in the world today, not just in K-pop, BLACKPINK is currently a global phenomenon.

Their song "DDU-DU-DDU-DU" was awarded both Platinum certifications in streaming and in downloads in 5 months and 10 months, respectively, after its release. Currently, this is the fastest release of a girl group that has gotten platinum certified.

Additionally, "Forever Young" as well has gotten both Platinum certifications in streaming and in downloads.

JYP Entertainment's ITZY (debuted in 2019) - The youngest group on this list, ITZY packs a punch as the only premiere 4th gen girl group on this list.

"DALLA DALLA," ITZY's debut song, was dubbed a Platinum streaming certification only after 9 months the release. This makes ITZY the fastest female K-pop group to get this laurel after their debut.

Additionally, they are the only K-pop girl group to have their debut song to be certified platinum.
