After year-end promotions, it was quite clear that Girls’ Generation has solidified their status as the top girl group in all of K-pop right now.
However, netizens noticed that it was unclear who else belongs in the ranks of the elite girl groups in the industry. With news of KARA disbanding and 2NE1 still on an indefinite hiatus, netizens speculated which up and coming girl group would rise to the occasion and compete with SM Entertainment‘s seemingly unrivaled group.
I’m really curious. Back in the old days, it used to be Wonder Girls, Girls’ Generation, and KARA.
Who are the Top 3 girl groups right now? Girls’ Generation is there for sure, but I have no idea about the rest.
I’m not talking about who stayed there the longest, but their current popularity.
