YG Entertainment’s biggest group, or shall I say, K-pop’s most successful group. Bigbang is also one of the most successful boy groups around the world, surpassing Maroon 5. They are called Kings of Kpop for a reason. Bigbang has been one of the K-pop groups that opened the K-pop industry to the world since 2011 until today. A legendary 11-year-old K-pop group wherein four of the members are serving their military service right now, Bigbang still continue to live their legendary status as of today. Despite everything that the members had been through for the past 11 years, Bigbang can still slay the charts as a group or individual, with no teaser, no promotion, and no music video. No rumors nor issues could destroy Bigbang’s legacy in the industry. Bigbang will be celebrating their 12th anniversary this August and four members will be back next year after their military service. Bottomline, it looks like no other K-pop group could surpass this record anytime soon.
