Currently, the K-pop genre has blown up to be one of the most popular music genres to date. The K-pop industry has been producing top-quality K-pop artists and due to this, K-pop songs have been more in demand all over the world.

In almost every corner of the globe and all the seven seas, K-pop has made such an impact that it has become its own brand. Recently, one of the top countries that are one of the highest consumers of K-pop started a poll and revealed the country's 2021's top K-pop girl groups.

One of the largest consumers of K-pop, Japan has been an avid supporter and listener of K-pop since the very beginning of the genre. This has been incredibly prevalent as most popular K-pop groups release Japanese versions of their songs and even learn the Japanese language to communicate with fans.

This is how large the K-pop industry is in Japan. At times, Japanese releases such as special albums or singles are dropped to cater to the Japanese market. Notably, a lot of popular K-pop artists are also Japanese or Half-Japanese.

Recently, a popular polling site started a poll to find out which K-pop girl groups Japan considers the best, for the first half of 2021. After a grueling tally of votes, these are Japan's picks for the top K-pop girl groups for 2021 so far:

#8. Girls' Generation (also known as SNSD)

#9. KARA

#14. (G)I-DLE

#15. fromis_9
