Every group has at least 1 or 2 members that could've had a successful solo career without the help of their musical counterparts. Today we're going to take a look at the idols who could have soared throughout the land of KPOP on their own wings.
G-Dragon is one of three members in Big Bang who could have easily held his own as a solo artist in the industry. His individualistic fashion sense alone sets him apart from the hundreds of other idols trying to stand out in the crowd. Aside from his impeccable style, G-Dragon has music flowing through his blood stream. Training since the tender age of 8, G-Dragon has been honing his craft for the last 17 years and the hard work most definitely shows.
Taeyang is hands down one of the most talented artists in the K-pop industry. Not only does he possess the moves of a dancing god, but the vocals on this man are a gift from the harmonious heavens. Taeyang's smooth and sexy on-stage persona is a far cry from his off-stage shy and quiet personality, making him one of the most loved entertainers in Korean pop culture.
T.O.P is the last Big Bang member on our list who could have easily had a kick-ass solo career. The rapper's deep voice, handsome looks, and undeniable swagger make him one of the most popular idols in our day. I wouldn't mind listening to T.O.P solo albums all day every day.
HyunA of 4Minute is the reigning sexy queen of K-pop and with her string of hit solo singles, the singer could have easily run K-pop alone with a thrust of her hip. The "Bubblepop!" singer is known for her sexy dances and fit body, making her the one of the most sought out females of all time. Hyuna became a world-wide household name when she starred opposite Psy in the international hit, "Gangnam Style."
2NE1's CL should have been a solo artist. Not to ruffle any feathers with BlackJacks, but CL's on-stage fierce performances put her on a different level amongst her group mates. The leader has not only become of the most prominent faces of K-pop but has also become a fashion icon in the industry. Her talent and fashion taste alone makes her a standout candidate for stars who should've been given a solo deal.
Any one you think should've made the list? Let us know in the comments below!
