15 K-Pop Artists Who Took The World By Storm In 2017

2017 was quite a year for K-pop. From climbing Billboard charts to trending worldwide on Twitter, K-pop was unstoppable! Will world domination be next on that list? For these 15 artists, we definitely think so! Check out our nominees for this year’s Artist of the Year below.

TWICE

Releasing hit after hit, TWICE bopped to the top in 2017! TWICE’s first studio album “Twicetagram” became the fastest-selling album by a K-pop girl group (since 2002), when they reached 100,000 unit sales within three days of the album’s release. “Twicetagram” also placed No.19 on Billboard’s 20 Best K-pop Albums of 2017. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, TWICE became the first female K-pop artists to top both of Billboard’s World Charts.

Their achievements weren’t just limited to Korea. In Japan, “#Twice” charted at No. 2 on the Oricon Daily Album Chart, as well as the Oricon Weekly Album Chart. TWICE was also selected as one of the winners of the 2017 Oricon Queen Award.

It also set the record for the most No.1 albums on the chart by a K-pop girl group.

This summer’s anthem, “Red Flavor,” was the first song from Red Velvet to top Gaon and their fifth song to sell over a million copies. “Peek-a-Boo” was also a mega hit: it peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s World Digital Songs chart.

Last, but not least, BTS is the only foreign artist to be certified double platinum in Japan. How’s that for a “mic drop”?

HOTSHOT’s Timoteo Talks About His Close Group Of Friends And Getting To Know Ji Hansol On “The Unit”

HOTSHOT’s Timoteo recently opened up about his budding friendship with Ji Hansol on “The Unit,” as well as his close group of friends who are affectionately called “Friendship Parkas” by fans.

During “The Unit,” Timoteo had the opportunity to become friends with many other idols, but he spent much of his time with NewKidd’s Ji Hansol. He said, “Though we were both once SM Entertainment trainees, we didn’t actually have any interactions back then. Kai is the one who introduced us to each other later on because he felt like Hansol and I were in similar situations. I heard that he had been active as a dancer for a while, and we ended up on ‘The Unit’ together. Hansol is very cute and is like a baby sometimes.”

Timoteo also looked back on an emotional moment in the show, when SHINee’s Taemin had broken down in tears after seeing his close friend auditioning for the show. Saying that his friend’s tears had been a source of motivation for him, Timoteo shared that he had spoken to Taemin right after the audition. He said, “Instead of saying sweet and empty words of encouragement, he gave me realistic advice like ‘You have to do better,’ and ‘You’ve trained for a long time, so you have to do well.’ His words pushed me to work even harder to do better.”

Not only did Timoteo receive the support of Taemin, but his entire group of close friends as well. HOTSHOT’s Timoteo, SHINee’s Taemin, EXO’s Kai, HOTSHOT and Wanna One’s Ha Sung Woon, BTS’s Jimin, and their non-celebrity friend Kwon Ho are well-known for their tight friendship and are often called “Friendship Parkas.” This is because they ordered parkas with a customized logo on them that signifies their friendship. Timoteo noted that it was a name given to them by fans, as they didn’t have an official name for their friendship.

He shared, “There are a lot of people who think that because we’re all famous, we probably do unusual or extravagant things together when we hang out. But none of us really drink, so we just go out for coffee together, check out good restaurants, and chat. Sometimes, we stay home and play games together. We’re all pretty introverted, and we like to form a few, deep friendships.”

Timoteo continued on to say, “None of us really treat each other like celebrities, we’re just a group of friends. I think the moment you start seeing your friend as a celebrity, you start building a wall between the two of you. We’ve been friends for over ten years, and now we’re more like family. It never feels awkward, even if we’re meeting up for the first time in a while. We plan to go traveling together when we have the time.”

In 2017, I released my first solo album, and I kept busy through my appearance in the drama ‘While You Were Sleeping.’ I sincerely thank the fans who gave me lots of interest and love. In the Year of the Golden Dog, I am planning to promote even more actively as a singer and an actress. Happy New Year to everyone, and please stay healthy!”

GOT7’s Jinyoung

He added, “I think it’s meaningful that I’m able to offer my New Year’s greetings to this many people. Above all, my fellow GOT7 member Jackson was also born in the year of the dog, so I think I will be able to spend a more meaningful and confident 2018.”

Wonpil concluded, “In 2017, I released two new tracks every month, and I held a concert every month. It was a priceless time for me, and I learned a lot in many ways. In the new year, I won’t forget about the things I felt in 2017, and I will work hard to become a more memorable person through good music and positive appearances!”
