South Korea’s pop music scene is flooded with several competing girl groups but Blackpink has been hailed most successful than the rest, according to a local news variety show.

TMI News recently released a rundown of the most successful girl groups in South Korea which includes second-generation artists that paved the way for succeeding girl groups to be recognized even in the international arena. The list was shared by entertainment news website Koreaboo that ranked the seven girl groups according to their musical success.

On the top of the chart is Blackpink. Considered as the most successful South Korean girl group of all time, Blackpink is loved not just by local fans but international fans as well.

Just five years after the group's debut in 2016, Jennie Kim, Lisa Manoban, Roseann Park, and Kim Ji-Soo broke records by landing at No. 6 in the Billboard Hot 100 in September 2020 with the song “Ice Cream,” in collaboration with Selena Gomez.

The girl group’s track “Lovesick Girls” also peaked at No. 1 in October of the same year. Last week, the group celebrated its fifth anniversary with the release of “Blackpink: The Movie” in South Korea.

Next is Twice, a group created by JYP Entertainment in 2015. The nine-member group has been breaking records since its debut album “The Story Begins.” It is best known for its single “Cheer Up,” which became the best performing single of the year in 2016.

Third on the list is Girls Generation, a girl group that debuted in 2007. Though the members are no longer actively promoting as a group, they reigned as K-pop queens during their time. Some of the group’s most notable hits include “Lion Heart,” “I Got A Boy” and their debut single, “Gee.”

On the fourth spot is 2NE1. It is considered one of the most successful and most popular girl groups among rivals in the generation K-pop music scene since it debuted in 2009.

Before the group disbanded in 2016, it scored hits such as “I am The Best”, “Fire,” and “Come Back Home.” The group received the song of the year award for “I Don’t Care” in 2009 and the Daesang award in the same year.

Next on the list is KARA -- one of the most successful girl groups to have dominated Japan. It is considered the “most beloved” as its members were the first Korean female idols to perform at the Tokyo Dome.

Sixth on the list is Wonder Girls, considered as one of the pioneers in the Korean pop music scene having debuted in 2007.

Although it has been four years since the group disbanded in 2017, it is still best remembered as the first and leading K-pop idols to have tried breaking into the U.S. music scene with its Billboard Hot 100 hit, “Nobody” released in 2008.

At the seventh spot is Red Velvet, a group that debuted in 2014 with the digital single, “Happiness”. It is a versatile girl group as it continues to experiment with different musical styles ranging from cute to sexy, spooky, and event avant-garde, Koreaboo said.

After nearly two years, the group is making a comeback on Aug. 16 with the summer mini-album “Queendom.”
