2019 Hellokpop Best Of The Best: Main & Popular

By  | 

2019 has been an even bigger year for K-Pop – and we’re more than excited to share our picks for the stars who brightened up the year with our 2019 Hellokpop Best of the Best.

Despite all the down moments, 2019 still proved to be a great year for K-Pop as it has continued its dramatic streak of breaking through the local and international scene – and making its impact much bigger while it’s at it.

This would not have been possible without the hard work of K-Pop artists who poured their hearts out for their comebacks, and performing with their fullest energies on stage.

As we get ready to welcome the new year, we would also honor the outstanding work that different artists have done this year with our series of the 2019 Hellokpop Best of the Best.
