By  | 

It is not surprising for most fans that Kpop debuts happen almost every month. Keeping track of those artists, however, will always be difficult.

With such high number of rookie bands, the competition to win fans’ hearts is very tough. There will be some that already have a solid number of fans even before debut and there will be others who need to pave the path to stardom. Groups like TWICE, iKON, Seventeen, N. Flying, Day 6, GFRIEND, CLC, Monsta X and OH MY GIRL would probably be the most popular debuts of 2015.

However, there are also other rookie groups you should definitely check out. Here’s a list of promising Kpop debuts this year:
