Quick Poll: Top K-pop Artists and Variety shows of 2021

 

Chingus, I am sure we all have heard or watched at least one K-pop song/music video. Some of us might not be much into K-pop but surely have at least one K-pop group whose songs we don't mind checking out, or have some of their songs in our playlist for a long time.

Same is the case with Variety Shows. There are some really interesting and enjoyable variety shows out there, which we like to watch when we are not in the mood of the dramas, or check them out when our favorite Oppa/Unnie/Noona appear in them. Whatever be the reason, for most of them, when you start watching an episode, it becomes very hard to not complete the episode. 

 

So here we are with the top 19 K-pop Artists of 2021 (According to Spotify), and top 19 Variety Shows in this poll. Vote for your favorite K-pop artist, tell us why you like them and maybe even share your most favorite K-pop song's YT Video here. Also do tell us which Variety show you love watching and since when you have been watching them.

  • Sleepy Owl changed the title to Quick Poll: Top K-pop Artists and Variety shows of 2021

TFW none of your top kpop artists aren't on this list :sad1::crybaby:

 

My boys, Highlight, need to get some more love. Also SHINee, CNBlue, and 2PM

 

As for variety show, Running Man is always my favorite and top because I love the cast and I've been watching the show since 2013! Lee Kwang Soo left last year though :bawling: but that didn't stop running man!! 

 

I also really enjoyed Six Sense as well (still need to watch season 2) and Kingdom the legendary war! I tried so hard not to stan BTOB but Kingdom just turned that all around... They were AMAZING on that show. I came for SF9 but am leaving that show a BTOB fan :doggie:

Would love to add SF9). I confess I discovered them after following Rowoon in King's Affection  :). Very mature and strong performance by everyone in the group (rare thing). 

And certainly IU is my forever one and only Kpop girl)

*** I like EXO especially Chen (my ultimate bias). He has an amazing & powerful vocals. And I love their Love Shot & Power songs & Chen's Everytime (OST of Descendants of the Sun). He has given me a million goosebumps when he sings. Watching K-dramas and listening to their OSTs, a certain male voice kept singing too many different tracks and I loved it, it was Chen. They’re awesome, what is there not to like? I started to like the group & listen to them after watching them in a show. The next thing I knew, they were my favorite band. I like their music and choreography, no doubt. It is so distinct and diverse. The dance line , the rap line, the vocal line, all are so beautifully synchronized. For me, every one of the 9 members has something unique to offer.  I don’t know them personally but, based on what I’ve seen, they’re super humorous, caring, and dedicated. I like the connection they have with fans. I can’t help smiling whenever I hear about them, listen to their music, or look at their pictures and videos! I’m proud of them for whatever they do. Every time I would watch anything to do with EXO on Youtube, I can’t help but be impressed and amazed by their immense talents as well as their lovable personalities. K-pop is big here in my side.... EXO FIGHTING!!  :sweet:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I enjoy watching Running Man. The foremost reason that this show is one of the top variety shows in the world is because the show is hilarious. Their hilarious banter, jokes and pranks aside - you can tell that there is immense love and loyalty among the members. Running man has some scripted elements, and while most aspects are not scripted in the strictest sense of the word, they are frequently improvising within an agreed framework.  This show is famous. I started watching Running Man back at episode 30 (not sure though if I recall this right!) I’m a huge Big Bang fan so once I heard that Seungri & others were going to be on I was sold! :kisslevel:

Sorry Chingu, they were not in the top 20 list :crybaby:

 

Maybe you can share the YT video of your favorite songs from them :piggydance:

I am not a regular watcher of Variety shows, but I usually find myself watching "The Return of Superman", "Immortal Songs", "2D1N" since I watch KBS World from time to time on my TV, and see some clips of "Running Man" sometimes when YT recommends it :exercice:

Sorry Chingu, since we have technical limitation of 20 options per vote, we cannot add it, but you can surely post your favorite song's music video from them. Since I have not watched/listened to any song of theirs, I would like to see what you will recommend to me :hooray:

 

IU is love :fullofhearts:

And here I am, a new MOA of TOMORROW X TOGETHER boys! Their visuals are not a joke! Being fangirling over them for some time now! :heart:

 

 

That's great Chingu!! I honestly didn't know about them when I was coming up with the list for this poll (again, I am not that much into K-pop and a very casual K-pop songs listener), but they seem to be a good group to me :coolshades:

 

@willenette Chingu, I have not watched/heard many songs from EXO (I did back in the day, but not very recently), but yeah, I do regularly listen to drama OSTs by some of their members from time to time, my most favorite being the Goblin OST - Stay With Me 

 

 

Since you mentioned Big Bang, another OST I used to listen a lot back in the day was "Hallelujah" from IRIS by them

Yes, same issue here.... :criesariver:

I am only a fan of 2nd gen kpop, and my favorite bands were also missing. SHINee, Super Junior, Bigbang, INFINITE, etc. :bawling: Well, to be fair, most of them weren't promoting in 2021.  2NE1 and MBLAQ aren't even around anymore.

:sad1:

Thank goodness some of the members have become actors, so I have been able to enjoy the oppas on screen despite their lack of musical promotions. :kiss_wink:

 

I have been meaning to organize a 2nd gen kpop event on this forum for the longest time, but have been unsure if anyone even remembers these artists anymore.

 

With regard to variety shows:

 

I used to be a huge Running Man fan, but didn't really watch many episodes in 2021. Instead I watched My Ugly Duckling (mostly due to Choi Jin Hyuk appearing in it). Now Siwon is appearing in it, and he's just too hilarious for words. Have always found him funny, charismatic and handsome (as I have watched quite a few variety shows with Super Junior).

He is one of a kind, that's for sure.

And they call him the "most normal member" of Super Junior - lol:loolz:

EDIT: @joccu's oppa Donghae is definitely the least normal member of Super Junior if anyone was wondering. :joy:

I'm not a good chingu it seems, I should know better.  You can be my younger sister's friend ;) She has been following them since school days.

K-pop was actually the reason why I started watching k-dramas back in the day (over 10 years ago). :kiss_wink:

 

@leo2020 Thanks for sharing the video of SF9. I had never heard of them before. I enjoyed watching the video. :wub:

@gm4queen First time I am watching a video of MOA. Nice song. :wub:

I love the acoustic version more

 

 

 

Spoiler

SS501 was my first kpop group that I fell in love with.

Anyone else loved them ?

 

Some of the old me's fav. songs included

Loveya, love like this, URMan , calling for you etc

And some of the solo songs of kim hyun joong like

Please be nice to me, please etc

 

Then CNBLUE through jung yong hwa (through his drama heartstrings ost

 

 

 

And the songs i loved from cnblue were,

I'm a loner, love girl, cant stop etc

And solo songs of jung yong hwa like 

One fine day, without you, last leaf and many more.

 

Then slowly into 

Super Junior,

Shinee,

Miss A,

Apink,

Infinite,

F.T.ISLAND,

VIXX,

 

The post would get so long if am going explain How I end up liking the above mentioned groups and moreover I would like to save it for later ( Eonni @partyon's 2nd gen kpop idol's event).

Chingus, I am sure we all have heard or watched at least one K-pop song/music video. Some of us might not be much into K-pop but surely have at least one K-pop group whose songs we don't mind checking out, or have some of their songs in our playlist for a long time.

 

Same is the case with Variety Shows. There are some really interesting and enjoyable variety shows out there, which we like to watch when we are not in the mood of the dramas, or check them out when our favorite Oppa/Unnie/Noona appear in them. Whatever be the reason, for most of them, when you start watching an episode, it becomes very hard to not complete the episode. 

 

So here we are with the top 19 K-pop Artists of 2021 (According to Spotify), and top 19 Variety Shows in this poll. Vote for your favorite K-pop artist, tell us why you like them and maybe even share your most favorite K-pop song's YT Video here. Also do tell us which Variety show you love watching and since when you have been watching them.

 

hai everyone. thank you for tagging me on this poll. :D I watched The Fugitive: Plan B 2010 and loved it. Running and Running is a song by MBLAQ, a popular boy group created by Rain himself under his own company, J. Tune Entertainment. at the time, as far as I remember, The Fugitive: Plan B drama, during the Korean War, a vast amount of money disappeared. now, some 60 years later, the money has reappeared, leading to a frantic chase across the globe. Jin Yi played by Lee Na Young is a seemingly innocent woman who has hidden motives for approaching Ji Woo starred by Rain, he would have made a great Asian James Bond for sure. :D he delivers a fantastic performance here in the most overtly comedic role and romance developing between them. herewith, the music video for MBLAQ's track Running and Running for KBS 2TV's. the popular boy band's energetic theme song Running & Running matches the drama's action-packed. :D

I used to love MBLAQ. :heart: They were just genuinely a likeable kpop group in my opinion. If you guys haven't watched their Hello Baby variety show, please do! Their season was the best Hello Baby season of all (even though I did love SHINee's and SNSD's seasons too).

 

Lee Joon and Mir really proved to be Dumb & Dumber in that show. :joy:

20120116_leejoon_hellobaby.jpg

 

I think @confusedheart would enjoy it. :kiss_wink:

 

Yes, I am also glad that some of our oppas stuck around as actors. Especially Park Hyung Sik oppa, L oppa (Kim Myung Soo), Taecyeon, Lee Junho and Siwon come to mind.

:heartxoxo:

 

@4evrkdrama dongsaeng and everyone else, what kind of second gen kpop event should I organize?

MBLAQ was my favorite group after Beast (now Highlight) I loved their friendly rivalry too. They were really likeable indeed it was impossible to pick a favorite member. Their Hello Baby was hilarious and Joon and Mir being the dumb and dumber duo is so true hahaha. (I laso loved the variety show Oh my school which had different idols in it Joon being one of them, I really recommend it to all 2nd gen k-pop fans that haven't seen it yet, it's so funny.)

Chingu, I have only heard 2 songs of Stray Kids as they were the opening and ending songs of an anime called "Tower of God" based on a famous webtoon of the same name. I loved both songs, and the best thing about it was (which I think could be the case for most of the kpop songs these days) that it had Korean version Japanese version and English version. Both of these songs are among the ones I listen a lot in my playlist.

 

 

 

 

@twinkle_little_star Chingu, "The Fugitive Plan: B" was among the first dramas I watched, and I used to love whenever that OST would play in the action scenes :piggydance:

 

@leo2020 Chingu, thank you for sharing the SF9 video, enjoyed watching it :exercice:
