Tumblr's year-end rankings are taken from data on their own "Fandometrics," and they rank the most popular stars, such as specific entertainment topics on the site. The website also follows changes in the conversation of users, and among the most popular topics were K-pop groups.

This ranking does not only show the popularity of K-pop but how far the genre has reached in the United States. K-pop is a slowly growing genre, but in recent times, K-pop has grown in popularity at an amazing rate in the West. Not only are K-pop artists reaching milestones in Western award shows, but they are also being included in lists among top Western artists!

2021 was an amazing year for K-pop in the global scene, and it seems like the genre will further expand in 2022!
