K-Pop has transcended South Korea. It is now a well-loved music genre worldwide. Although most K-Pop groups as well as their agencies are currently working hard to capture the Western audience, there is no denying that having a solid domestic fanbase is a must for group longevity and continued success.

Having domestic fans means public relevance and being recognized by the general public is a huge feat that any artist would love to achieve.

Recently, a survey asked university students from all over South Korea who are the singers they prefer. Here are the top five artists that they have chosen.


This list is not complete without the "Nation's Sweetheart" herself, IU. The singer, actress, model, and superstar is an icon in the South Korean entertainment scene. Dubbed as the "idol of idols," she has been an inspiration to aspiring K-Pop stars for her dedication to perfecting her craft and achieving the success she deserves even though it means starting from nothing.


No arguments are needed, BTS is the boy group of the time. The seven-membered boy group is currently the hottest in the world and their legion of fans are some of the most loyal that exists. With their positive message and the pride they bring to the country, there's no doubt why they are one of the few singers university students chose to be on the list.

Park Hyo Shin

The sentimental singer is a legend in South Korea's music scene. Park Hyo Shin has released chart-topping albums since the late 90s making him a respected figure in the industry.

Girls' Generation's Taeyeon

Being a leader of the "Nation's Girl Group," Taeyeon surely made a mark in the industry. But her solo releases like "I" and "Fine" among others, made her one of the most talented vocalists in K-Pop.


Among the artists included in this list, TWICE debuted the latest. The multi-national girl group has proven their charms and talent with their release of some of the most addictive tracks in the industry including "Cheer Up," "Knock Knock," "More and More," and their most recent "Alcohol-Free." TWICE has also become the best-selling Korean girl group of all time.
