When one member of a certain K-Pop idol group has all the attention and popularity, it seems that the group continues to either suffer in ambiguity or become big just because of that one particular member.

It’s happened for quite some time in the K-Pop scene, which is why they have often been compared to characters in games that carry the team to a win.

You can check some of them out below!

 

Suzy (Former Miss A)

In her case, she "had to", as Miss A has disbanded and she is also no longer in JYP Entertainment. Suzy is arguably the most popular female K-Pop idol that the world has probably ever known.

SeolHyun (A.O.A)

Much like Suzy, SeolHyun is a highly popular beauty icon in South Korea. People have heard of the group A.O.A most likely because SeolHyun is a member of the group.
