When K-Pop moves from one generation to another, many senior idols receive public acknowledgement from their juniors. These idols have made a name for themselves with their talents, looks, personality, or a combination of all three. Read on to see six 2nd generation idols who are very popular among 3rd generation idols!
IU‘s skills are so widely acknowledged that many people no longer consider her an idol. To them, she is one of the greatest artists of the 2nd generation!
Before Taeyeon was known as one of the best solo singers in Korea, she was popular as Girls’ Generation‘s main vocalist. Idols from the 3rd generation look up to her because of her powerful and beautiful voice.
The multi-talented G-Dragon of BIGBANG is adept at rapping, song writing, producing music, and designing clothes. It’s no wonder he is one of the most popular male idols in the industry.
SHINee‘s Taemin is well respected by his juniors for having been active in the industry for many years, even at his young age. In fact, he is the only idol to have debuted in four generations of K-Pop. Count on Taemin to be the role model of many young idols!
Former Miss A member Suzy became an instant star when she debuted on July 1, 2010 because of her stunning visuals. She is often mentioned by 3rd generation idols when the topic of “prettiest woman” is brought up.
Like Suzy, YoonA is also regarded as one of the most beautiful women in Korea, and it has made her extremely popular among her juniors. She isn’t just beautiful on the outside, though. YoonA is loved for her kind and humble heart as well!
