Netizens Shocked: Nubia Magazine Releases Their List Of The 10 Most Famous K-Pop Idols

There are thousands of lists and polls online that note down the most popular K-pop idols. Although somewhat biased, there will be quite a few lists that claim validity from data such as brand rankings and multiple other factors regarding the popularity of an idol.

Although biases will still be felt through hints, the popularity of a K-pop idol can be tabulated in an absolute way. Moreover, most of the time, the K-pop superstars on the lists are usually repeating with only a couple of other idols making their way in some lists.

But when an official magazine releases a list like this, netizens and K-pop fans are usually quick to scan the validity of the ranking regarding the popularity of K-pop idols.

Not long ago, Nubia Magazine, a popular British magazine, dropped its list of the 10 most famous K-Pop idols from all over the world. Nubia Magazine's rankings were taken from collected data from 70 varying social media platforms from across the globe.

To add to this, Nubia Magazine also used data from Google such as Google Trends and Google news. 

Furthermore, data also came from netizens and people via surveys taken on the streets and in public from across the globe. With the data gathered, compressed, and tabulated, here are the top 10 most popular K-Pop idols today, as per Nubia Magazine:

#1. V of BTS

#2. Jungkook of BTS

#3. Lisa of BLACKPINK

#4. Jimin of BTS

#5. Jisoo of BLACKPINK

#6. J-Hope of BTS

#7. Jennie of BLACKPINK

#8. Baekhyun of EXO

#9. Rosé of BLACKPINK

#10. Cha Eunwoo of ASTRO

All members of BLACKPINK made it in the list, alongside four out of the seven members of BTS! The other two idols on the list are members of EXO and ASTRO.

Congratulations to the K-pop idols who made Nubia Magazine's top 10 most popular K-Pop idols today! Did your favorite K-pop idols make the list?
