Many K-Pop idols are not just recording and performing artists, but also producers and songwriters themselves.

In the past in the scene's early days, idols usually didn't take part in writing or producing the music as much as it is seen today. Of course, times have changed and an increasing number of idols are quite directly active in the songwriting and producing process.

And it makes sense for a lot of idols to play this role, as they would be able to directly plan and create according to what a performance would need in addition to taking into consideration of what each group member would be singing or rapping as well.

Some K-Pop hits have actually been co-written by idols. While they may not have written it for themselves, their peers have been quite pleased with the songs as they've been well-crafted and produced.

You can check some of them out below.
