Top 7 Most Popular K-Pop Girl Groups

Members: Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy, and Yeri

Years Active: 2014–present

Label: SM Entertainment

Founded in 2014, the five-member girl group Red Velvet is known for making both pop and, unusually, R&B-inspired jams, deviating from most of their counterparts. Their slinkier soul sound (think: Ariana Grande times five), offset by dance-ready tunes like the peppy “Dumb Dumb,” has attracted a primarily female fanbase, and indicates a smart choice to appeal to multiple genre audiences. Known for their energetic, seasonal hits, Red Velvet has successfully dominated the Billboard charts numerous times. However, their latest release, Summer Magic – Summer Mini Album earned them their best U.S. sales week ever. Then the EP debuted at No. 3 on both Billboard‘s World Albums and Heatseekers Albums chart. Accessories related to Red Velvet are available only on KpopArmyBase.
