Dreamcatcher’s Gahyeon is the best maknae for 2022!

It’s the maknae’s time! If you didn’t know, Maknae is the Korean term for youngest. In k-pop groups, the maknae position is usually highlighted. They are sometimes babied by the group and even by their fans. We asked our users to pick the best maknae in K-Pop. It garnered over 2.5 million votes for 50 nominees. 

According to Kingchoice users, the best k-pop maknae for this year is none other than Dreamcatcher’s Gahyeon. Gahyeon received over 1 million votes. Gahyeon didn’t debut together at the same time as the other members of Dreamcatcher. She was added in 2017 after the company debuted Minx into Dreamcatcher. Even though she’s the late addition to the group, many still treat her as the maknae of the group

Gahyeon is the youngest out of the 7 members of Dreamcatcher. Aside from being the maknae, she is also the lead rapper and sub-vocalist. 

Dreamcatcher recently held their 2022 Dreamcatcher World Tour [Apocalypse: Save Us] wherein they went on tour to the cities of Pennsylvania, Louisville, Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Mexico City.

The second runner-up is Super Junior’s Cho Kyuhyun. Yes, the idol is in his 30s but still, he is picked as the second best maknae among even the younger idols. Cho Kyuhyun received over 979,000 votes among other nominees. It was a close fight with the first runner up but eventually, Kyuhyun got second place for 2022. 

Kyuhyun is the last member to be added to the group, Super Junior. Unlike the other members, Kyuhyun made his debut after a few months since Super Junior was presented to the public. He is the youngest in the group and is often called by the members and fans as the “Evil Maknae.” Not because he is the epitome of evil but because of his savageness to the members despite him being the maknae. 

Super Junior recently released their 11th studio album “The Road: Keep on Going.” Currently, the group is having a tour for their Super Show 9 concert. 

The third placer for the poll is BTS’ maknae, Jeon Jungkook. He received over 106,000 votes out of 2.5 million votes. Jungkook is known as the golden maknae of BTS. He is labeled as the golden maknae because everything he does, he nails it. If Jungkook puts his heart into something, he will definitely do well in it. 

Recently, Jungkook collaborated with Charlie Puth for the song “Left and Right.” BTS members are currently pursuing solo activities but they still get together from time to time with their group activities.

The 2022 Top Female KPOP Idol Rapper is from Dreamcatcher!

One of the aspects that made K-Pop unique is, that almost every k-pop group consists of a rapper position. Whether it’s a male or female group, a rapper is almost always present. 

Here in Kingchoice, we held a month-long poll and asked our users to vote on which female k-pop idol is the best rapper

Over 2.2 million votes were cast and finally, here’s the result:

Out of all the nominees, Dreamcatcher’s Dami got first place! Over 721,000 votes were given to Dami. She fought closely with the second runner up but still in the end, Dami got the first spot. 

Dami is the main rapper of the girl group Dreamcatcher from Dreamcatcher Company (formerly Happyface Entertainment). Dami debuted in 2017 together with other members. She is part of the first members to debut in the group (formerly called as Minx). 

Before Dami became a k-pop idol, she first trained for one and a half years. 

Her group Dreamcatcher recently released a new album called Apocalypse: Save Us and its lead single “Maison.”

Dreamcatcher is set to have their world tour. Their first stop is America and they will be in the cities: Pennsylvania, Louisville, Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Mexico City.

The second runner-up of the poll is none other than BLACKPINK’s Lisa. Despite Lisa not being the main rapper of BLACKPINK, many of Kingchoice’s users chose her as one of the best female rappers in the industry. With only a few differences, Lisa got ranked second in the Kingchoice’s Female rapper poll. 

BLACKPINK’s Lisa garnered over 700,000 votes from our users. Just last month, Lisa also dominated our poll regarding the best female idol dancer. It’s a shame that Lisa didn’t get to achieve the back-to-back win but still, she ranked high in our latest poll. 

Lisa and other BLACKPINK members are currently busy with their individual schedules. It was also revealed that BLACKPINK will finally return to the K-pop scene this year as a full group.

Super Junior’s “Callin” is the most picked for Hot 50 World Song May 2022!

For the month of May, Super Junior became the top one on our Hot 50 World Songs. Their first release of 2022 called “Callin” got over 598,000 votes from Kingchoice users. 

“Callin” was released on February 28, 2022. It was included in Super Junior’s single album titled The Road: Winter for Spring.

This was their first release as a group in 2022. This was also their first time in a while to have a title track that is a ballad track. 

Despite the song being released several months, it seems like fans of Super Junior and other users of Kingchoice still enjoyed listening to the track “Callin,” Out of 1.8 million votes for the poll, the majority of our users picked Callin’. 

After releasing Callin, the nine members of Super Junior are focused on their individual activities such as variety shows, musicals, solo releases, OSTs, and many more. 

The second hot song for the month of May is from Dreamcatcher. Yes, Insomnias! You’re included once again in the top three. This time, Dreamcatcher’s latest release titled “Maison” entered our top three. 

For this year, Dreamcatcher’s songs have dominated our polls. Like their songs Odd Eye and Because. 

Last April, after several months of hiatus, Dreamcatcher returned and released their song, Maison. Because of this song, Dreamcatcher also received its first-ever trophy on the music show since its debut. 

Third, on the poll is none other than BLACKPINK Lisa’s solo song Money. It’s already been over 8 months since Money has been released but it is still one of the most listened-to songs by Kingchoice users for the month of May. Lisa’s Money garnered over 319,000 votes. The song was actually not the title track of their solo debut Lisa. “Money” was a b-side song and still became successful not only in Korean audiences but also in global fans. Meanwhile, after two years of group hiatus, BLACKPINK is finally returning this year. The girls will reportedly have a new release as early as June. No other details have been revealed yet regarding their full promotions.
