The K-Pop Girl Groups With The Most Legendary Debuts, According To Netizens

Netizens name two girl groups whose debuts made a lasting impact.

K-Pop has gained popularity worldwide. One of the main reasons for this is the unique blend of musical styles and cultural influences that K-Pop groups bring to the table.


K-Pop often blend elements of traditional Korean music with contemporary pop, hip-hop, and electronic dance music. This creates a distinct sound that sets them apart from other pop music from around the world.

Additionally, many K-Pop groups incorporate visually stunning music videos and choreographed dance routines into their performances, which adds to their appeal and helps them stand out.

Another factor that has helped K-Pop gain popularity globally is the use of unique social media platforms specially created for communication between idols and fans, like Weverse and Bubble. These platforms have allowed K-Pop groups to reach a wider audience and helped build and maintain a dedicated fanbase.

Their debut song, “Fire,” set the tone for their confident, girl-crush concept, and the group remained a forceful presence in K-Pop.
