Under the Radar is a special monthly column where underrated Korean artists are featured. Artists are chosen based on a few criteria like popularity, activeness, and availability of information.

The rotation goes as: male solo, female solo, male group, female group and mixed group. If a certain month has five Saturdays, two artists will be featured. If so, the first artist is a veteran artist (debuting at least one year or more) and then follows a rookie artist (debuting less than a year.) Under some circumstances (i.e. it becomes too difficult to find an artist under these criteria), the rotation is subject to change without notice.
