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.
