Notably the only Korean music artists on the list, the boy group once again showed their unparalleled power and impact by making an appearance in Gold House’s annual list, recognizing several personalities of Asian and Pacific Islander descent who have wowed the world with their excellence in their respective fields.

“The A100 List honors the most impactful Asians and Asian American & Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in culture every May for AAPI Heritage Month,” the non-profit collective’s official website stated.

Gold House puts an emphasis on personalities who made their impact on the five industries – activism, advocacy and politics, finance and business, lifestyle and sports, media and entertainment, and technology and innovation.

Along with them on the list are presidents, co-founders, and CEOs of big companies and organizations like Google, Adobe, Microsoft, Softbank, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Twitch, Uber, and more.

In the field of entertainment, Hollywood personalities Sandra Oh, Priyanka Chopra, Mindy Kaling, Jason Momoa, Henry Golding, Dwayne Johnson, Darren Criss, Constance Wu, and more were also among those recognized for their breakthrough in their respective fields.

Additionally, Ken Jeong, who made an appearance in the music video of their collaboration with Steve Aoki titled “Waste It On Me”, was also part of the long list.
