The Kpop Superfan Test

So, I know this isn’t the Kpop Music Monday you might have expected, but we’ve mentioned a couple times now that we want Monday to be about Kpop in general, sometimes with a review and sometimes with something different but still related to Kpop. Yes, we know that this means __________ band didn’t get a review this week. But… the new 2NE1!? The kind of new MBLAQ!? The crazy B.A.P video?! And what about the uber hard working Starlights!? Sorry if you’re upset, but we promise it won’t be the end of the world! :D We’re running out of days of the week to fit in random video segments, and when we’re inspired we want to be able to make a video that makes us laugh and have a good time. Hopefully, you can still have a good time watching these videos! And so, forward ho!

So, the idea for this video came to mind for a couple of reasons:

After our WANK on Friday, in which we didn’t know who Baekhyun was, it seems that some people were genuinely upset that we didn’t know the names of all of the members of EXO. We’ve seen this comment in other Kpop Music Mondays as well, in which people would say “why do you call him ‘that guy’? You’re a professional! You should know everyone’s names!” But most people don’t share in these few people’s opinions, after all, you don’t need to know someone’s name to like their music.

Sometimes we wonder how different kpop fans would be if EXO was made up of 12 overweight/lanky, pimple faced, average looking teenage boys. I feel like the level of anger and obsession would drop significantly and the focus would be more on the sound of the music rather than on the “idol” worship. In fact, that’s why the two of us aren’t at that crazy level despite liking many kpop bands; we’re more interested in how the music sounds over who is in the group and what they look like. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a favourite group; I do (obviously: Big Bang (Martina here if you couldn’t tell)), but when Big Bang puts out a crappy song I have no problem acknowledging that.

I guess what’s so interesting about the Kpop world, is that it’s the only genre of music I can think of that people actually KNOW the names/hobbies of all the people in the group! We both love so many bands outside of Kpop; we can sing all the lyrics the songs and own all the albums, yet we couldn’t even name the lead singers of most of the bands. And what about the rest of the band members? The synth player? Drummer? Bass player? Outside of Kpop, just liking the music of your favourite band is all you need to be a fan. I think that’s the way it should be! Which is why when people say that we’re not Kpop fans we’re shocked. Yes, we’re kpop fans. No, we’re not kpop obsessed.

But then, we were curious as to just how many Kpop band member names we actually knew. We aren’t obsessed with any one Kpop Idol romantically, and we aren’t part of any fan clubs or forums, so we wondered “how many Kpop names do we naturally know just from the passing of time?” Same goes to you: how many names do you know?

OH! Also, before you take the test of DOOOOOMMM, thank you for all the lovely support messages. I’m was almost over it, but then I got food poisoning on Sunday!!! WHAT A SHITTY WEEK! Seriously: I didn’t leave my PJs and stuffed toys ALL FREAKIN’ WEEK. Sunday night we decided to try out this restaurant that we heard of and BOOYA! Food poisoning. And it wasn’t even from Korean food! I was still ill today while filming so hopefully I’ll be up to full Martina power by the end of this week.

If you want to participate in our little challenge, here are all of the bands we did along with the amount of members in each band. Take the test and see how well you did. If you couldn’t tell, we were close on a lot of names, but we got a lot of the pronunciation wrong. Taeyeon vs Taecyeon vs Taeyang all sound the same. Yes, they don’t sound identical, but there’s a lot of similarities in their names. Soohyun Seohyun Seoyun Sooyoung SoyunDORITO. It’s impossible to remember them all! Except for that last one. I’ll never get that one wrong.

Kpop Superfan Member Test!

In brackets beside each group name is the amount of members in each group.

Super Junior (13)
SHINee (5)
EXO (12)
Girls Generation (9)
f(x) (5)
Big Bang (5)
Batoost/B2ST (6)
4Minute (5)
2PM (6)
Miss A (4)
Bilasa/B1A4 (5)
Kara (5)
Sistar (4)
T-ara (6)
U-Kiss (7)
F.T. Island (5)
Infinite (7)
Teen Top (6)
TVXQ (2)
JYJ (3)
B.A.P(6)

Total: /124

Scoring System:

1-5 points: It’s okay, we forgive you.
6-10 points: Your loyalties lie deep with just one group.
11-20 points: A good solid year of Kpop under your belt…or you might just be a semi-dedicated EXO fan.
21-40 points: You can name the most famous Kpop bands, but waver on the lesser known groups.
41-60 points: You’re starting to annoy your non-kpop friends. They just don’t understand.
61-80 points: You have begun to replace your normal vocabulary with kpop terminology.
81-100 points: You have a minimum of one Kpop poster, one Kpop CD, and one piece of Kpop merchandise.
101-119 points: Holy smokes, Kpop guru! What else do you know??!!
120-124 points: I’m scared…please don’t hurt us…

Let us know how you ranked! I’m not sure if we did better than you expected, or worse. We don’t really have anyone we can compare our results to. Leigh knows next to nothing about Kpop apart from what she sees in our videos. Soo Zee knows some. She knew all of the members of Shinhwa, though! That was one of the groups that we were asked that didn’t make the final cut of the video, but you can see our reactions to Shinhwa, 2NE1, and some other bands in the extra footage/bloopers below:

Lastly, we hope you liked this video and found it fun. If so, you should click on this button below! It’s been proven to enhance your knowledge of Kpop bands tenfold. That is, if you want to know all of the details about your favourite Kpop bands, like their phone numbers and such :D

  8. I didn’t even try because I know I’m going to fail xD. I know all the members of Big B and SHINee, but that ain’t saying much! When I first got into kpop, i tried to know every single group and every single member but when life got busy, I found myself unable to keep track of who was who and who was coming out with what. Now I just follow my favorite groups loosely. Btw, I love your outfit Martina. :)

  9. The bands that I totally know are BEAST, 2PM, EXO, SISTAR, SHINEE, F(X), 4MINUTE, BIG BANG, 7 mems from SNSD, 3 mems from INFINITE, 3 mems from SUJU and Kevin? Ahaha and there’s other groups that’s not listed in here.

    2 years ago
  10. Hahaha, I only got 52 and the only groups I could really confidently list out all the members were TVXQ and JYJ since I absolutely adore both groups; I could name all the members of SHINee, f(x), and Big Bang but there was a whole lot of hesitation before every single name. ;w;

    Anyways, I think my 5/6 years in kpop paid off ahah

  27. 58/124, i had some problems with girl groups, i only recognised f(x), other groups were like 0 or 1 member. i know all the members of big bang, b.a.p and u-kiss, because i listen to them the most. also tvxq/jyj and shinee were easy to me because i started with them. :DD but it’s just that for me the music is more important than the members. i’m amazed i could name even 8/12 of exo, since i personally don’t find their music that good.

  35. the real test isn’t naming the members given a list of groups, but to be able to see the photos of the KPop stars and naming each one by sight. What good is it if I can name the members of a group, but not know who is who when I watch their video?

    4 years ago
    • Oh? That was how I tested myself anyway. I can spit out 1001 kpop names because of my moderating job (deleting thousands of idol names repeated hundreds of times) – but i don’t know who they are so it wouldn’t count. I also have people whose faces I recognise, but names I can never remember, including my favourite member of 4Minute, the short-haired one in Muzik. I dunno man, Korean names just mess with my head.

      4 years ago
      • I wonder how many others tested themselves that way though. I gave myself 2 extras for knowing Lizzy and Nana (when I listed my total knowledge and not limited to the S&M list of KPop groups) that I only know because I’ve seen their names (you can probably guess why I’ve seen their names a lot).

        BTW, your favorite member is Jiyoon.

        I know what you mean by having trouble with Korean names though. My American head has a hard time remembering the slight differences of each name (like between yoon and hyun).

        For me, it takes lots and lots of views of the multiple mvs and show appearances (cause the stars often change their looks from comeback to comeback) until I can recognize by face despite the new color of hair or hair style. And then to match the name with the star. And on top of that, though I can see their name in my head, I often doubt whether I can pronounce the name properly like Hyoyeon (woohoo, I actually spelled her name right without looking!).

        4 years ago
  36. The only one I didn’t know was ft island besides hongki.

    4 years ago
  37. Do I get extra points for being able to list all 15 members of Super Junior in order by age?

    4 years ago
  38. If you don’t know all the members of the band, that’s fine but it comes off as if you’re upset if somebody does know all the members :/ Although I’m pretty sure that’s not the intention.

    4 years ago
  39. I got 84…totally got murdered on the boy groups with the exception of most of the old standbys (DBSK, SuJu, Big Bang, SHINee, 2PM) plus Infinite. Only missed Dasom (sorry!) on the girl groups, though. To be fair, there aren’t any rookie groups on the girls side—newest girl groups are SISTAR and miss A, both of which debuted in June 2010. On the boys side, B1A4 is from 2011, and EXO & B.A.P. are from 2012, so this quiz is slightly to the advantage of boy band fans.

    Of course, this is all harmless fun, so it doesn’t really matter! I will say that I have a considerable amount more than merely one K-Pop poster and album, though…running out of places to put those things.

    4 years ago
  40. This was super fun guys! All through the video I was laughing!
    I got a nice score of 33!

    4 years ago
  41. wow 63……that’s pretty damn good

    4 years ago
  42. I ranked 80! And the description is really accurate hahahaha. I still have no posters, cds etc. But I’m still a guaranteed KissMe, it’s just that I’m broke most of the time and still studying with all the pressure etc :D

    4 years ago
  43. i managed to get 69. ….. not kidding

    4 years ago
  44. Why is the total out of 124? Those numbers add up to 126. Unless the 13 for SuJu should have been 11 to not count the two members who quit.

    Anyways, I got a perfect score of 126. After School was in the YouTube video but is not included in this test. They were the only group I didn’t know all their members 6/8.

    4 years ago
  45. Woa….116/124. I’d never realize that I’ve known many group members till you pointed it out. I was thinking it was like perhaps around 30 or something since I dont really follow the other groups beside ones I’m rly fan of. Strangely, when I’m writing this I remember the other 2 names, the only one I forget in Miss A, Fei, and one B1A4 member. So,,, 118 in the end? :D

    4 years ago
  46. I was surprised how many I knew! I got a 78, and yes, I do replace your normal vocabulary with kpop terminology. And really, I don’t think I tried that hard to remember some random names because I certainly do own more than one Kpop poster, a few Kpop CDs, and lots of Kpop merchandise. This was fun!

    4 years ago
  47. I got a 33… >_> I’m better at girl groups. Running man and dramas helped me with some of them cause I liked the individual members but didn’t think their music was catchy. Plus alot of my fav. groups weren’t on the list lol… 2NE1, After School, Rainbow, Wonder Girls…etc. Would Leessang count? Love them too lol.

    4 years ago
  48. 31 points, So I’m a pretty casual fan. I still love the music more than learning the names though.

    4 years ago
  56. So I consider myself a pretty big K-pop fan and I only scored 95, but I will admit that I’m not a fan of girl groups with the exception of 2Ne1 and Amber from F(x).

    Bands not included that should have been: 2AM, Block B, BtoB, CN Blue, Dalmatian, Epik High, LED Apple, Lunafly, MBLAQ, NU’EST & ZE:A and I’m sure there are more, but these are just the ones that I’m a fan of and noticed you didn’t include.

    Thanks for listening to my rant…love y’all Simon & Martina ;)

  57. Ehehe I can’t name a good part of the chemical elements but I know almost all of the names from the k-pop bands *–* Just a year being their fan and I am already stuck… :3 I named 65, I am so close :P

    4 years ago
  58. I had like 90 names correct – but if it would have been boy groups only it would probably be a 100% (since I barely listen to girl groups and I only knew f(x) and about half of SNSD). xD”

  67. 41-60 points: You’re starting to annoy your non-kpop friends. They just don’t understand.

    I got 57 points….not bad, except that I got a high score mostly because of the boy bands (except EXO…my brain would asplode (yes, I spelled it like that on purpose) Kai is the only one that sticks )….girl groups why don’t I know more than one member, except T-ara and After School…my brain died before I could find any name.

  68. I got 81….but uh, if only you would have replaced After School, T-ara and Kara with like MBLAQ, BTS, Secret, 2ne1, GLAM, Miss A….hehehe
    Haha the funny thing is I don’t own ANY kpop merchandise ^^

  69. 118! I’m kind of proud of myself, considering I only got into KPop under a year ago. I knew everyone in their respective groups except the ones from T-ara (only knew TWO!) and F.T. Island (only knew Hongki) >.< I tend to remember names and faces, especially if I've watched one of their variety shows… or if I've watched them on Weekly Idol XD

  70. I was able to get 43, and there are a lot of groups I didn’t even know one member. >>; I was able to get all of SHINee, SNSD, and f(x), but those three are the ones (plus Ailee) that I stan the most.

  71. haha this was great – only it kind of seemed more like an open the happy or wank type of video.
    i dont want to sound like an ungrateful nasty (i really did like this! i had a lot of fun playing along, too!), but i really missed having a music monday.

  84. I got 121. And I’ll admit my downfall (aka the only reason I didn’t get them all) was T-Ara. They just keep changing the line up, so I don’t even feel compelled to learn their names anymore. No offense. I love their music though. I’ve been a fan for a little over 2 years. I got into Kpop in May of 2011, so yeah XD

  87. I really, really loved this video and I applaud you guys for doing something K-Pop related that has nothing to do with reviewing a song or video – there’s so much more to K-Pop! It was fun to see Simon be mean to sicky Martina you guise test your recall memory, and I wholeheartedly agree on the Western aesthetic VS the Southeast Asian (J-Pop is very much like K-Pop in that regard as well). If I could name as many Western band members as I could J/K-Pop members… Stuff would happen. LOL

    And.. Even though you guise totally blanked when Soo Zee said Donghae (1/2 of Donghae & Eunhyuk, famous for “Oppa, Oppa”)….
    http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ljwkvv1RSa1qd6s1r.gif

    I still love you both. /sniffles

    Ah, but I don’t really blame you for not knowing Hae; I got really excited when you knew Shindong! Many people pay him no mind. Was also really impressed when Simon knew Leeteuk right off the bat, he’s been gone for nearly a year now (it’s been that long holy hell). And yes, Martina, Heechul does count. If Leeteuk counts, Heechul counts. xD (YAY HENRY AND ZHOU MI OT15 OKAY WE CAN)

    My clear SJ bias aside, you both did extremely well considering how many groups you review! The brain only operates on about 15 watts of power (takes up 20% of the body’s overall energy) and it takes the mind about 3 seconds to determine if information is worthy of retention or not.. Considering Korean names are so similar (and how hyperactive you both are), I’m real proud of you both for giving it an honest effort. Not to mention it was essentially a flash memory test, and speaking personally, even though I KNOW Nicole’s in KARA, I totally forgot her. And consequentially remembered Jiyoung, whom I have next to no knowledge of. Go figure, brain. /welp

    And you don’t intimately invest in the personal lives of most of the idols you named! Leave it to Simon and Martina to turn negative response into something magical – you will never forget Baekhyun/Bacon now, Simon. You really did lose your pants mind for a second there. xDDD

    Here’s my vote for more videos like these, Oppa Oppa style! (Tokyo, London, New York, Paris, EAT YOUR KIMCHII~) /not a dork

    • Thank you for the awesome comment. We’re trying to do more things with Kpop than just video reviews, and it seems like people like this video more than regular KMMs, so it looks like we should do more stuff like this in the future :D

      • Hai, Val~ /waves I see u creepin’ ㄱㅅ ㄱ

        He enlisted October 30th, so 9 months ago, almost 10. Nearly a year. (Call me silly but I want to squish my Pillow Pet when I think about it. /Leader-nim~)

        Thanks! I know there’s lots of silly argument and that whole dumb petition about separating Super Junior and Super Junior-M, but when I see them standing onstage with just 8 members now… It really just makes my heart hurt. With Heechul and Leeteuk and Yesung gone off to the army.. Of course Henry and Zhou Mi are Super Junior members. You cannot have Super Junior-M without Super Junior. And I will defend that ’til I’m shanked. (It might seem a tad off-topic that I’ve mentioned this, I just mean that SJ need all their members counted! Namean? LOL)

        And I suppose I should take this time to frolic with you in the assumption that you are just as excited at Lady HeeHee’s impending return? The shet’s gonna hit the fan, bro. xD (And don’t worry, I’ll always love Simon and Martina, but watching Martina shake her head “Nope” and Simon totally blank when Soo Zee said Donghae’s name, my heart just went… /insert sad puppy Donghae face hurr)

        • *Waves crazily back* Hiya Spiralyte!

          Wow it really has been nearly a year. Leeteuk always holds a place in my heart because he really brought me to Super Junior. Plus he has that adorable abs smile, how could I ignore him.

          I’ve never understood why people see them as two separate groups. It’s Super Junior but in another language and now Henry is promoting in Korea. People should stop creating or blurring the line and accept that they are all Super Junior lol.

          Until this EYK game yesterday I forgot Yesung was in the military already. He went so quietly and I can’t lie…he’s my least favorite member of SuJu so I might not have been paying attention.

          I can’t deny it, I’m so happy Heechul is coming back. I’ve missed his antics and giving him the evil eye for being so beautiful lol Funny thing is I discovered SuJu right before he went to the military yet know SO much about him. It feels like I followed him the whole time before he left.

          Poor Donghae, can’t believe they didn’t know who he was. Especially when he is half of Oppa, Oppa. Totally up EYK territory. Maybe after this they won’t forget him again.

          4 years ago
        • D’aw, you can call me Lily. lolol

          ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Well, you should love his abs dimply smile, after all, he’s worked so hard on perfecting them it… And all… Sometimes you just can’t help yourself. xD

          If I’m honest, Super Junior-M is the only sub-unit I know of whose members aren’t all original members of the group. Most sub-units consist of smaller groups of people from the band, and that said, Super-Junior T/H/K.R.Y and Donghae & Eunhyuk are all those things. I’ve always found it odd not to include Henry and Zhou Mi. For the most part, I even forget they’re not Korean, they do so much for SJ as a whole. (Not to mention, my feels really come out when I remember how Henry spoke up at SJ-M’s fanmeet in Thailand about how he nearly left the band and went back to Canada because he was getting so much hate after Don’t Don!. IMAGINE JUST IMAGINE) Plus the rest of the members really love and support Henry and Zhou Mi, so it sort of hurts me to think that people who can call themselves fans of Super Junior can dislike the unity between them and two people who they consider brothers. :(

          LOL Yesung. I laughed so hard when Martina was like “Erm.. Maybe?..” He’s a character. He wanted a quiet send-off, which I can understand. But he’s been more active than Teukie, which makes me chortle. I’m glad he’s doing okay, it must be hard for him not to be bombarding us with his daily selcas on Twitter. xD

          I know how you feel about Heechul. It’s odd to be without someone’s presence for so long yet just know they’re quietly waiting in the background to spring back into your face. I just want his attitude back, I know he’s going to whip these boys into shape and give Eunhyuk a run for his money. Plus, I’m sincerely hoping he brings back the water games because LOLOLOL And I really miss his cackle. That sound just makes my everything.

          I can sort of understand how they wouldn’t necessarily remember Donghae (Heechul will be very happy to see his favourite dongsaeng full time again~ lololol). He’s my bias, but admittedly, he likes to lay low. He’s broken into acting, done music composition, owns a successful restaurant, revived his Instagram.. But unless you follow his movements, you wouldn’t necessarily know that? So I don’t blame Simon and Martina at all and am definitely not going to stab my fingers at them and be like “YOU DON’T KNOW MY OPPA” because I don’t feel that way and I’m not childish (even though I felt the painz in my heart because he’s just so goshdarn adorable).

          But at the same time, he’s one half of SJ’s main dancing machine and he’s very nearly always in the front and gets lots of screentime (^^~). But again, there are lots of members of SJ and I don’t expect S&M to know them all, no matter how exposed to K-Pop they are. I do, however, applaud them for knowing all 9 members of GG, because that means it’s possible for SJ! At that number, they could already name all the currently active members plus one! LOL

          4 years ago
        • Hi Lily! I can’t believe I didn’t know your name before today :)

          Dude, I always, like always forget that Henry isn’t Korean. Zhou Mi, I’ve always known for some reason he isn’t (probably his name) but Henry I always insist he must be at least half Korean if not full…and he’s neither lol. I personally think, If Super Junior counts Henry and Zhou Mi as members of Super Junior, then so too should the fans.

          Leeteuk has been so quiet on Twitter since going to the military that forgot I even followed him. It will be like Christmas morning the next time he actually posts something.

          Super Junior is always fun but it just feels like this energy, this aura has been missing and I know without question it’s because Heechul has been gone. Can’t wait to see him back in action.

          Donghae, he’s so adorable. Even though I’m more Eunhyuk & Kangin “biased” ( I don’t really have a SuJu bias) I think Donghae is the cutest member of the group. I was think if Simon knows the OTL pairing JongKey, then maybe he will remember Donghae if we teach him EunHae XD Sadly that is how I learned Donghae….

          I seriously applaud them for getting all of GG correct as well. I can only get Super Junior correct if I write it down because I lose track of who I’ve said. (I always forget Kyuhyun even though I know him so well).

  88. I think you guys made a mistake while counting together all the members in total, because I got 125 right and when I counted I came to 132 in total. ^^

  89. I got 110. Girl groups screw me over and for some reason I couldn’t remember Youngjae from B.A.P. Which is just sad. Plus if you add Wonder Girls, Shinhwa and 2NE1 plus SuJu-M’s member’s that’s an extra 6 so a total of 116 … I only know Eric from Shinhwa and Sohee from Wonder Girl’s lol awks.

    Btw, you guys didn’t put After School on your list but put Miss A, just letting you guys know if you don’t already.

    Also Heechul totally counts cos you counted Leeteuk and he’s in the army right now lol. And Heechul is the one that looks like a girl, not Kibum.

    Aaaaand lastly, I just want to say I think I would’ve enjoyed this video more than any KMM for the songs out atm. Really fun video, it would be great to see more like it. Thanks for the laughs~ Both of you need to practice your k-pop idol names though!!

  90. I absolutely loved this video and I have an idea for a rematch: NAME AS MANY KPOP SONGS AS POSSIBLE FROM A PARTICULAR GROUP!

    It might be a long video but I’d be really interested to see which groups S&M have delved into/heard of beyond the group’s top hits (i.e. knowing SNSD’s “Telepathy” or B2ST’s “On Rainy Days” in addition to their big hits “Gee,” “Genie,” etc. and “Shock” “Fiction”, etc.)

    And I also know all the members of Shinhwa. And 2NE1, and more.

    Fun game, in any case.

    I did something similar with a friend once.
    We tried to list all the boy and girl bands we knew. Seperately in two rounds, taking turns to name one, only active ones. With the boys we made it past the 50s, the girls close to 50. Maybe give it a try some time, it was fun.

  126. One of the reasons I love kpop is because of the way fans get to know the members as individuals, and listen for their particular contributions in songs and It’s special connection that people don’t really get with Western pop music. It makes fans feel closer and more passionate, and it’s okay if it isn’t JUST about the music. There’s nothing wrong with being both hot AND talented, and showing it!
    About the “what if exo were 12 average looking people”, that probably wouldn’t change too much in the way of fans, at least not internationally. If you ever look at metal, rock, alternative, and punk western bands, like All Time Low, Of Mice and Men, Sleeping with Sirens, they aren’t really society’s type of “attractive”. They have tattoos and big piercings, they don’t wear super fancy clothes. They have formed a really strong connection with fans through social media and fans are the same way. They love all of the band members and know them by name and personality as individuals. I think that is when music becomes so much more than music. It is a bond, a sanctuary. Band members are friends when no one else is there. Their lyrics help you through tough times by making you laugh or cry or understand. You can just marvel at the beauty of their voices.
    So, in short, I don’t think music HAS to be JUST music. It can be so much more, band members actually have helped fans through tough times. They have visited sick kids, encouraged teens who suffer with self harm and depression, and just made people smile. That is why I like kpop and non-mainstream music. Because it is more than just music. It’s a way of life.

    I was surprised at some parts how many you knew or you didn’t know. I thought you would know all of the 2PM members’ names since they are an older group, and I also thought that you would know more Infinite members. You reviewed quite a few of their videos and you also like them.

    One thing I found strange was that I got all of the EXO members names because I knew all their superpowers in Mama. I do odd thing when I’m bored. Like memorize superpowers and kpop names and random facts and watch weird variety shows.

    I guess after a while, even though the music is still super important, I started becoming more interested in the people in the bands, and it was cool that they had shows where they displayed their images and personalities and stuff. Weird.

  146. So , before I watch the video with spoilers and all . . . Here is my result: 76 (based on the bands listed in S&M’s post ).

    ” 61-80 points: You have begun to replace your normal vocabulary with kpop terminology. ” -> I am not sure I understand what you meant there. . .

    On a side note:
    1) this was kind of fun
    2) who in their right mind knows all the names of all the bands out there?

    ( I mean, do you need to know half of the population on Earth by their names? I don’t think so…You don’t have to at all. Same thing goes for bands.)

    _______

    I listen to kpop because of the music and music only. Am not the person who cares how the singer looks like.

    I also do not listen to every band out there and to all of the artists songs. There are bands I may or may not know and only like some to one of their songs and bands who have more songs I like.

    That said, I may be high-note biased so I like songs with high-note moments in them ( but still only some of them. . . ).

    • its suppose to meant that you know several kpop words and has infuse them with your everyday language. Like maknae (meaning for the youngest) or ulzzang (meaning for good looking). I mean thats how i view it.

  147. I looooooved this game ;) scored about 100 points, but it was so fun :)
    SIMON, big ups to you for scoring so much! I thought Martina would win this :)

    I support your idea to change the KMM format a bit from what it used to be before, and it would be really nice to hear from you any news or watch games related to k-pop, yet still I would like to watch your reviews probably like you did with the fangurilla version of KMM – 2 videos in one KMM. And the only thing I miss about K-pop chart updates (and it might probably done a bit in KMM) is that you introduce us new songs and new bands. I’m really grateful that you still do k-indie updates, since I still discover new interesting music for myself, but I miss a bit in in k-pop as well.

  151. Kpop is the only genre that fans actual know the names of members? What? I think fan obsession is a little bit of an Asian Pop thing. There are definitely people in the US who know the band members of pop groups, but there are a lot famous solo artists so it seems a little null. But I know there are a lot of “idol” obsession in Japan. H!P anyone? They are the foundation for kpop idols in Korea along with Johnny’s Idols. I remember I could name all the kpop idols in Morning Musume, all the subgroups, and smaller groups that were part of Hello! Project, even though I didn’t like that group’s music. Same with Johnny’s Idol’s when I got into the group NewS and SMAP. It was like an addiction, once you started to learn members in one group, you learn more in groups under the same level. That said, I really don’t know any kpop artists names oddly. I have favorites, but usually I can never remember names, not even in 2NE1 and they are the easiest to remember.

    • Yay for this post o/ I’m a new momusu fan but I’ve remembered all of their members’ full names already except for the first generation (could only remember iida kaori and natsumi abe) up to the 11th gen lol. And as for Johnnys it’s because my roots are from hey!say!jump I got into Johnnys Jr. And god knows how many there are and I knew quite a lot ><

    although for me music is also the most important factor, when liking a band’s music style and songs i feel that it’s only right that i at least know who are those who sing and deliver the songs that i love.. besides, for me it takes more than just appearance to like someone or for someone to become my bias. so yeah, i like to know more about them. :)

  162. okay I’ve got 46 points so well as I aspectet because I have the same thoughts as you guys. First of all the music is important and than everything else. I know all the members of my favorite groups and that’s okay, I don’t have to know After School members if I only have one song on my Ipot. I’m not obsessed with Kpop and that’s good so I can concentrate on my Abitur and don’t have to stay awake the hole night listening to songs ( okay istat of this I#m watching kdramas not better ) ^^
    Your scoring system is very funny cause for me it is correct. Before Kpop I didn’t know any names of the mambers in my bands or how many mambers they have or spoke about them all the time but now I speak of nothing else and annoy everyone around my who doesn’t like or know kpop ^^

  181. Well in this rank I would get 104 but if you asked more groups like secret, wassup, gi, mblaq, etc. I would get over 170.
    But that is just simply because I have a good memory and hearing a name and seeing a face with it for more than 3 times I would remember them.
    So I’m not crazy. I just have a good memory and plus the music is also more important to me otherwise I wouldn’t know them just like I only know one person in beast just because their songs aren’t really my taste.

  186. 97/124. “You have a minimum of one kpop poster…” are you serious? I scored lower because IMO at least 4 of these groups are complete nugus, or flops (T-ARFLOP). I can’t even name a single person in FT Island. After School should be on here along with MBLAQ, 2NE1, and Brown Eyed Girls.

    Anyway well done too you both, I think you both did well. My daughter & I also did this while watching and we got into a few disagreements ( she wouldn’t except me naming their hair colour instead of their names, lol)

From B2ST I knew 5, from 4Minute I got 1(Hyuna), from B1A4 I got 2, from Kara I got 4, from T-ARA I got 1(Qri) only because you guys said it in the video. I have a total of 112. And I know everyone from Shinhwa. It’s my favorite band. You guys did well. And I get what you mean. You don’t have to know everyone to be a fan. Like myself.

  205. You know your fandom is old when…people can’t even remember where the
    other members are :)) That’s why they should’ve totally considered
    Heechul since they accepted Leeteuk who’s also in the army right now!
    I feel so old for knowing this hu hu hu btw I got a 97…not so bad :))

    Also I think something unique about KPOP is that since the groups sometimes add/remove members it’s kind of confusing andI wonder if it still makes them the group that they are. So to play this game you kinda have to set rules on who to consider since you guys listed 13 for Suju but only 6 for 2PM.

    but it seems I’ve messed up your rating system because I don’t have ANY kpop merchandise, cd’s or posters at all. But then again that might just be because I don’t have any money…I want some kpop cd’s sooo bad but shipping costs will be the death of me TT____TT But I’ve never been one for posters I think I would creep myself out if there were heaps of kpop posters on my walls – that has always just made me feel kind of uncomfortable. I guess because I too like to think that I care about the musical talent of the members rather than their bodies (good looks are just an added bonus :P). Which is why I have to disagree with you guys – you can know all the members and heaps of bands and not be obsessed!! I find that by knowing the members it just gives you this kind of connection, you get to know the band better and the band dynamics and you can then learn the positions of each member and know “well I really like that persons voice”, or “that person is one of the best dancers I’ve seen in kpop.” Of course if you watch variety shows then member names become a lot more relevant haha.

    Anyway, this made me realise just how many members I do know seeing that I did the test before I watched your video and all from memory! It is kinda shocking – especially since I actually know more than 100 if you count members from other groups not included like 2ne1, wonder girls, c-clown and AOA and others!!

Why yes I know birthdays too. Of idols I don’t even like/I’m not a fan of. It’s embarrassing.

    And Kpop isn’t the only fandom where you know the names of all the members. My male friend is a huge metal/death metal fan and he knows the names of everyone in the bands he likes.

  234. Meagre 18 and that’s just because I know everyone from Big Bang and SHINee. I find it hard remembering the names, since I’m used to not knowing them in Western pop. And frankly those who know everyone scare me… I mean, it’s unhuman to be able to remember everyone from EXO (not to mention how much time it would take)… Oh, interesting enough, k-dramas do help learn idols’ names

  244. I understand where you guys are coming from, because there are definitely crazy fanboys and fangirls who will go all batshit on you if you don’t know every single member’s name, but I think the way you worded the blogpost might make some Nasties feel bad for knowing a lot about people they genuinely care about. It’s totally fine not to know anything about a group and just listen to their music, I do that for a lot of groups, but I also have groups where I just really WANT to know about them, and that’s not a bad thing. Fans are all different. I’m not even sure what I wanted to say exactly with this comment, I just wanted to make it.

  245. 72! I started to replace normal words with Kpop terms quite a while ago though :D. Btw, I would have gotten most of Shinhwa and all of 2NE1 as well as all of MBLAQ (A+, I am disappoint, aren’t you?). Now to watch the vid and see how S&M did.

    I will say that was with only one year of solid fandom under my belt. I only listened sporadically before then and wouldn’t have been able to name half of that.

    I got 68 on the quiz.I’m quite happy with myself that I didn’t know all of them. There is being a big fan of Kpop, and then there is having no life outside the internet.

    This means victory in Korean. I ain’t saying this to be a smartass but I thought you might want to know the correct pronunciation to the word so you won’t say the wrong thing if you say it irl.

  276. As people are watching YOUR show, you should do it how you want to….you will always have fans. If someone doesn’t like something they don’t have to watch it and/or can go off and try to do a better job of it themselves. I personally have no clue as to half the names in any one group…well ok, except for Big Bang and SHINee (somehow those got stuck) but I love music from SJ, EXO, B.A.P., AJAX and dozens more but I don’t have the time or inclination to learn all those damn names as it’s the music I like and some those smexy dance videos. But I’m doing good to know the name of the group I like and I’m ok with that. I get what you are saying about if they were ugly chances are you won’t remember the name which I notice I have a tendency to only remember the names of the ones I think are super smokin…but those are usually the ones that have a solo gig or have been in a drama so it’s easier to remember the name as they are singled out, otherwise I don’t much care. Keep doing what your doing. You have to do what motivates you and work is always better when you are motivated.

  309. For the most part, I agree with Martina about not having to know the names of artists to be a fan. However, apart from Kpop, my favorite genre is Screamo (Metal? Hardcore? Post Hardcore? I don’t care what you call the genre) and for the most part, people who are into the music know a lot about their favorite bands. When I talk to friends who share my taste in music, our conversations range from a band’s latest single to a story that the bassist once told. It’s just something that comes naturally to us.

    Anyway, I thought the similarity was interesting.

  311. Pfff. I got 122/126 (didn’t know 4 members of F.T Island orzll)

    Just to point out:

    “Sometimes we wonder how different kpop fans would be if EXO was made up of 12 overweight/lanky, pimple faced, average looking teenage boys. I feel like the level of anger and obsession would drop significantly and the focus would be more on the sound of the music rather than on the “idol” worship.”

    Way to throw shade on EXO btw. Appearance is a huge factor in KPOP, do you honestly think people would care about any group if they weren’t good looking? As if EXO fans are the only ones that take looks into consideration plus you pretty much generalize the whole fandom saying they don’t even pay attention to the music. FYI, I became a fan through their music and I can tell apart what’s good and what’s not. ///although really all their songs are good, in my opinion which is WHY I’m a fan. If you go on FB, for example and look at EXO fanpages, you’ll see everybody is AT LEAST satisfied with what they release. I haven’t seen a single EXO fan say they’re literally only a fan because of their faces. Their good looks are just an extra on the package of nice music and talent. (which is why they’re popular)

    “In fact, that’s why the two of us aren’t at that crazy level despite liking many kpop bands; we’re more interested in how the music sounds over who is in the group and what they look like. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a favourite group; I do (obviously: Big Bang (Martina here if you couldn’t tell)), but when Big Bang puts out a crappy song I have no problem acknowledging that.”


    Explain your obsession with TOP *cough* *cough*

    Most people can tell that behind the scenes, you still jam out to any song you say on Music Mondays is ‘bad’. Especially songs from your favorite groups. You say you aren’t YG biased but it literally can’t get any clearer. (and I’m not the only one that thinks so) Please just stop saying you’re not biased and give us your true honest opinions on things instead of just making sure your viewers are satisfied and not butthurt.

    Looking back at it, this is starting to look like a rant, lmao. I wouldn’t have commented at all if some of your words weren’t so hypocritical and immature.

    • “do you honestly think people would care about any group if they weren’t good looking?”

      I honestly think people can care about k-pop artists that aren’t good looking. K-Will would be one example. Also, people didn’t think BIGBANG or 2NE1 were good looking but they were still incredibly successful. Super Junior isn’t very good looking once past Siwon and Donghae but people still like SUJU because they have charming personalities and catchy music.

      4 years ago
      • K-Will isn’t ugly… Big Bang aren’t either… neither is 2Ne1… Definitely not SUJU… Lol.

        And even if the majority really thought they were, I obviously wasn’t talking about ALL groups, just the majority.

        4 years ago
    • What they’re saying is that Exo would have a lot less people who followed their tv appearances and personal lives, *in addition to their music*, if they were less attractive. It’s probably true that people would probably be less angry and obsessed if they weren’t attractive. And while not all fans are the same, I’m guessing there are cases in which people have started listening to groups because they were attractive or they enjoyed seeing them on variety and then found out they liked the music too. Which means their looks benefitted the group. However, S&M never said their looks were the only reason Exotics liked Exo; they just pointed out it’s probably a factor in why people get so obsessed and angry. And personally, if they hadn’t been an attractive idol group, I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t gain as many fans as quickly as they did.

      And sorry for the obnoxious stars; I wish I could just use italics…

      • But isn’t that true for all kpop groups? why do people pretend like Exo is the first and last? If Simon forgot the name of a member of Suju, Tvxq, etc. people would still be upset. (I’m not talking abt S&M btw, just other kpop fans who act like this is something new). Heck, ELFs were upset when Simon didn’t include Henry in Suju OT13. But God forbid Exotics act like other kpop fandoms. (Not saying it’s okay btw, just that they’re getting all this shade and other aren’t for doing the exact same thing). And I’m not an Exotic.

        4 years ago
        • Quoting my other comment below: “They might have been using Exo as an example. They talked about how outside of kpop they don’t really know any of the group names. And using Exo as an example makes sense since Exotics were the ones who were commenting about Simon not knowing Baekhyun’s name.”
          Also: Exo/Exotic bashing is also just becoming common and Exotics are starting to be seen as the poster child for excessive obsession and inappropriate fan behavior. Other groups don’t have as many *recent* examples of well known exceptionally-inappropriate fan behavior. Even ELFs being upset about OT13 is a little different: it’s hurtful to the members’ feelings and it is giving some of the fans a bad rep, but that situation doesn’t include members getting injured or recorded in the shower due to saesangs; members of other fandoms being slapped; or the entire fandom being banned from a tv show. It’s partly because Exo and Exotics are new, have lots of antis, and because of the many *recent* examples of very inappropriate behavior that they are viewed this way. If they fandom ages and calms down their bad rep won’t be as prominent.

          4 years ago
        • Recent or not, it still happened. And I doubt Suju will be watching EYK. And the slapping incident would have taken place anywhere. It had nothing to do with fandoms. The girl was slapped because she was filming someone and she overreacted. Why do ppl keep bringing this up like it has anything to do w/ the situation? And 90% of kpop groups wouldn’t be anywhere near their current fame if not for visuals. Once again, nothing new. I’m not calling out S&M, i’m talking the general bandwagon hypocrisy and selective memory of kpop fandoms.

          4 years ago
        • Whether it’s recent does matter because it’s what’s currently on peoples minds or will come to mind more readily. The slapping incident matters because most people have heard about an Exo fan slapping the girl and associate her with the other Exotics who’ve been acting inappropriately. Whether or not you think it matters to the fandom won’t affect the fact that people associate that incident with Exotics. And I already mentioned that Exo was an example; looks affect other groups as well.

          4 years ago
        • And that’s the problem, many kpop fans do not know how to look and analyze a situation properly and maturely. A mature person knows how to separate and analyze incidents instead of associating any and everything with Exo’s fandoms despite the fact that there is no evidence of such things. If an Exo fan becomes a lawyer, are you going to associate that with the fandom too? If an Exo fan gets bad grades in school, will you do the same? And what has happened in the past is VERY important, because that;s the reason Exotics are like this today: they learned this behaviour from earlier fandoms which most of them were likely a part of. I understand it was just an example, but like I said, it’s a general commentary on the hypocrisy of many fandoms.

          4 years ago
      • I know what they’re saying. But what bothered me is the fact that they only mentioned EXO pretty much stating that’s the only group that applies to what they said/meant. That’s all. They also made it seem like they only have fans solely because of their looks. I used myself as an example; I only got into them because of their music. I never payed attention to them when they were releasing their debut teasers because they didn’t release any music at that point therefore I didn’t care. Then MAMA came out, I got interested, etc. etc.

        • Idk, it’s just annoying because everybody uses EXO as an example for all the bad things, especially for the fandom. I really hate it when people generalize. Lol.

    • I so wanted to like this comment for your truth-speak about EXO (not my favorite group but lots of their songs are interesting and well-produced) and looks playing such a big role in the popularity of *every* Kpop idol, but you lost me with the slide into rant-language (“please just stop”) at the end. That phrasing is like nails on a chalkboard.

      I agree with you though, it’s annoying to see someone else claim the moral/indie high ground when at the end of the day they’re Kpop fans, same as anyone else on the site. I do appreciate what S&M are trying to do though, in the overheated atmosphere of K-idoldom it’s hard to strike that balance between impartial and engaged. Generally try to cut them some slack from week to week, though if *every* week is mispronounciation humor that’s clearly not gonna be cool.

      4 years ago
    • *cough* Good job on your score. I’ve been a fan of Kpop for 4 years now and I can only name all the members of 3 kpop groups (DBSK, Big Bang and 2NE1), 4 if you include Epik High. And yeah I like bands more for their music than for their looks. EXOs members are extremely good looking and I can’t name you more than one member.

      They’ve said plenty of times that they are YG biased but they aren’t biased in what they say in their reviews. Go watch what they say about CL’s “Baddest Female” for confirmation.

      If you think they’re so hypocritical and immature- go find some youtubers that aren’t or go on a Kpop site that isn’t and commend them for their honesty and maturity ^^

      4 years ago
      • I really only thought what they said here was hypocritical and immature, not so much what they say all the time.

        And as a matter of fact, I /have/ found some more mature youtubers. Lol. Their channel is called Premium Oppas. ^^ There are four people in total I believe but I really only watch two of them because those two are more ‘mature’.

        And like I said before, I don’t even believe them on their videos, they just have to keep their viewers happy by trying to convince them they’re not biased, lol.

        4 years ago
        • Actually, you were the one that sounded inmature with your comment up there. They were just putting EXO as an example because exotics were the ones complaining because they didn’t knew who Baekhyun was. You’re lying to yourself if you think that they’re so popular just because of their music, I’m not saying their songs aren’t good, they have really great ones (except for wolf that one is just crappy imo). Anyway, S&M had never denied they are YG biased, but they try to be imparcial everytime they do a review, CL’s The Baddest Female is a great example, so I don’t understand what is your problem.

          4 years ago
        • When the hell did I say EXO is only popular because of their music? All I said was not all of their fans only like them because of their faces. Of course that’s a big factor and I’ve never seen a fan say they’re hideous while only liking their music. But S&M made it sound like the EXO fandom is filled with little girls enjoying their faces rather than their music. The fact that IT IS an example is what pisses me off. They’re still saying their fandom is only into their looks, lmao. And how do a couple fans getting mad at them for forgetting their NAME mean the whole fandom is die-hard crazy for their appearance? My god.

          Again, they try to hide their YG biased-ness from the camera so people don’t go “YOU’RE YG BIASED BLA BLA BLA”. Like I said in a different post, they probably still jam to those songs. .__. Or at least that’s what I get. And if it is true that they really hate the song, they’re still a huge fan whereas if another group comes out with shit, they don’t even bother to learn more about their music and just hate, hate, hate, and ALWAYS bring that song back up when doing another review from the same artist.

  322. I got 108. I got almost all the old K-pop band right but screwed up on EXO and BAP. I only know 5 members from EXO and 2 from BAP. New fandoms are confusing and I’m still not convinced with liking EXO since another mar at their fandom was attacking a direct sunbaenim from the same company. I don’t blame EXO member but some of their fandom is too unruly and its giving the artist a bad name. Lastly as an ELF what they (some of EXO’s fans) did/said to Ryeowook was unforgivable, it was too rude. Maybe I’ll start liking them as a group in a few months since I’m already quiet addicted with their songs but some of the fandoms behaviour gives them a really bad name.

Now to try and remember a 10+ group.

    I listen to a lot of groups but I’m a avid fan (as in I’d actually buy CD’s and such) of around 5 groups. Learning groups names isn’t that hard for me actually. I just started listening to VIXX and already know all the names and can place faces with two members already. And I like learning their names because then it’s easier for me to talk about a group and not have to say things such as “that one with the red hair” over and over.

    Watching you guys trying to name all these people was hilarious! I was worried when Infintie came up because those are like my babies to me xD I love them so much and like literally seeing Martina blank was a struggle. lol!

There is a freakishly HUGE pressure put on remembering the names of these kpop idols though. Like, whoa.

    My first group that I really loved was SNSD (as though my avatar doesn’t totally give that away) and WOW it was staggering to have people being like, “okay, the one with the short hair is Tiffany and the one over there is Yuri and the one who totally doesn’t look anything like Yuri at all is Yoona and next to her is Seohyun” and I was just like O.O “I didn’t know they weren’t *actually* mannequins. Actually, yeah, I just want to take a moment to say that it freaked the heck out of me when one of the mannequins in Gee started moving her mouth and singing and COMPLETELY freaked out when they all started moving. There you go. My first really strong memory of Kpop.

    My score wasn’t horrible, though. Assuming I didn’t have to spell them properly and fudged a little when the name was basically close to what I was going for, I got a 33.

    • I love SNSD too and they introduced me to KPOP, I legit got a shock when I saw Gee MV cos apart from having so many members (IT TOOK ME SO LONG TO KNOW ALL OF THEM and now I can recognised all 12 of exo in a heartbeat, all about the practice lol) they were all in SYNC.

      4 years ago
      • Oh yeah, the in sync part amazed me too. I was not used to that with the bands I’d listen to before. And, WHOA, you can seriously recognize all 12 in exo??? o.o I was feeling pretty good about myself because I knew two of their names, though I don’t think I can attach them to the right face >.<

  396. 108 points.

    Among Kara, T-ara, and 4 Minute, I only know a few names. And in FT Island I only know the Hunky One. :P

    I don’t even listen to some of these groups, like Teen Top, f(x), B1A4, Sistar, and BAP, yet I know all of their members’ names. I think it’s because I watch a lot of Korean variety shows, so over time you’re exposed to the many groups that guest on them, whether or not you listen to their music. Plus I happen to have a very good memory for names. So in my case, I know a lot of member names not because I’m obsessed with looking them up and learning everything about a group, but simply because I happened to see that group guest once or twice on a variety show that I regularly watch. I subconsciously absorb the names like a sponge, lol. I’ve never watched a show with Kara, T-ara, 4 Minute, or FT Island, so that explains why I hardly know any members from those groups.

    4 years ago
    • I know what every single member of FT Island looks like, even own their physical albums, but I only ever remember “The Hunky One’s” name.

    • You and Agata are crazy, even with some of the groups I like quite a bit I couldn’t name all their members. I got all of AS’s though lol. And SHINee’s. And f(x)’s…

      …And that’s it. EXO I could only come up w/ 8. SISTAR I was taking forever trying to think of Soyu so I eventually just gave up..
      Oh dur I got all of Big Bang’s too, although if it wasn’t for Seungri’s comeback happening right now I possibly would have forgot him, he’s always the one I get stuck on.

But I would also say stuff from the higher categories applies to me as well, since I know all the kpop terminology, my room is decked out in posters and I have tons of albums, etc (though it’s all of Girls’ Generation).

    I’m so biased towards girl groups apparently because the only boy group members I knew were from bigbang (all 5), shinee (4), super junior (5), exo (4), and kevin from ukiss. (And out of those the only group I really listen to and call myself a fan of is bigbang lol). Out of the girl groups I forgot Dasom from sistar, only got like 4 t-ara members, and forgot the yoons from 4Minute (I knew there were 2 yoons, I just couldn’t remember the rest of their name lol). Also I like how with Korean names you can literally just shout the variations of yoons, yeons, hyuns, youngs, etc and hope to get a match lmao.

  419. I got an 85. I mean, I don’t need to be overly obsessed with every member and know every member’s name and past life to enjoy the songs. There are a lot of K-Pop groups and just any type of musical group where I can’t remember anyone’s names because I haven’t heard the names. I am one of those people who remembers names easily. I like to connect name to face/voice and I like being able to tell the differences in the voices otherwise everything is just one constantly changing voice and that creeps me out. I admit that like two groups on here are groups that I am a big fan of, though.

    and why don’t Henry and Zhou Mi become a regular member of Super Junior??? It irritates me especially since SuJu has only 8 active members (soon to be 9, Heechul :DD ) which is really low for SuJu!!!
    And I was kind of shocked they only knew 3 members of B.A.P considering they met them XD
    I usually don’t count Kibum as a member, he’s just a ditcher… and yet I count Han Geng as a member. But I got all 13 points (even though its technically 12 because Han Geng left)

  435. How I remember Super Junior: Oldest to youngest (to the best of my abilities)
    Leeteuk, Heechul, Hangeng (before he left the group), Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, um, Donghae, Eunhyuk, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kibum, Kyuhyun
    Insert M-ness if necessary: ZhouMi, Henry
    Otherwise I lose track of who I’ve already mentioned. I try to do that for most groups that have a lot of members.

    Score of 108 in the end. I looked at three whole girl groups and couldn’t name any of them. It’s more that I don’t know which group the girls belong to, haha.

  436. Easiest way to learn all the Super Junior names: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5FBlpQXAH0

Actually, after you guys were discussing if Heechul was part of Super Junior or not because he is currently in the army (Heechul is going to be discharged on August 30 this year!), I was curious about how many of the other members’ names you guys could still recall as it seemed like there may be more you guys remembered.

  459. I won’t hurt you! Honestly, I wouldn’t blame anyone for not knowing the names of the members.

    I only got 5 wrong, and I was really surprised because of that myself XD
    Mostly because I hardly listen to the music of some of these groups, but I still managed to guess (most of) their members. I guess I learned their names from variety shows and such. I never really tried to learn their names, I’ve only done that once with super junior when I first started listening to k-pop.

    But I easily learn the names because my cousin and I devide the lines in the songs by member, and then try to sing along every now and then. So I don’t only know their names, I also know which lines in which songs are sung by which member, and I can recognize their voices, simply from trying to sing along to the songs. I have no choice, if I don’t know their names, then I don’t know when to sing, and end up singing my cousin’s parts XD

    And also, this list doesn’t include many rookie groups.
    (of the groups that I still consider sort of rookies, B.A.P and EXO (and okay, Apink too) just so happen to be the only ones I actually know and listen too. Had you asked about croups like LC9, or led apple, or dalshabet and rania, it would have been a different story. I really only know the names of the groups, not their members, because I don’t know any of their songs.)

I wouldn’t have looked twice at it if it weren’t for the fact that k-pop is exactly my type of music. I think that being interested in the band members themselves is not a requirement to be a k-pop fan, but rather a complement. You don’t have to know all the names and watch all the shows to enjoy the music, but it’s seriously so much fun and just adds to the feels of awesome when I watch the MVs. I’m honestly surprised that you knew so few names (like not upset, just genuinely surprised) because you do work with k-pop – I don’t know how you’ve managed to evade them!

  484. Also, I realized you guys shouldn’t feel bad in any way. There’s this show named All the Kpop and in the beginning episodes, they made their idol guests name other idols from other kpop groups without repeating the same group two in a row and some of them failed despite probably working with idols and meeting a lot of them :)

  487. 70, I started forgetting ppl at the end.
    But good, now it slightly looks like I have a life.

    (Still can’t believe you forgot Eunhyuk from SuJu and Lizzy from AS when you’ve referenced both multiple times. lol)

    • Simon saying Eunhyuk’s name one time was how I actually learned to pronounce Eunhyuk’s. I use to severely butcher it before.

      4 years ago
      • The “Eunhyuk it”? lol

        I’m glad to see in the bloopers that Simon remembered Lizzy later but still smh lol.

        4 years ago
        • I don’t remember, seems so long ago know. I just remember Simon saying Eunhyuk’s name and being overjoyed that I could finally know how to pronounce it. I’ll later, it will come to me exactly when. It could have been that time you are talking about.

          4 years ago
        • When I’m talking about was during the EYKAs and it was during the scandal and he said something about a picture needing to Eunhyuk’d.

  495. Why do you guys only have 9 points for SJ? If you’re not looking to include SJ-M then shouldn’t it be 13? And if you’re not including inactive members then the number should go down to 8 I think, but I still think members in the army should still be considered, they’re still part of the group haha

    But anyways, I got 100 :D Yaaay, it’s not the highest but for a Canadian fan who has 0 Korean friends and doesn’t have any Korean background, I think I’m doing pretty well teaching myself XD
    I was so surprised though I thought you guys would know more! Esp after interviewing some of those groups hahaha
    I have to apologize to Simon for doubting him though, I def though Martina would win but she proved me wrong :P

  496. 38! In my defence, I don’t really actively follow most of the groups on the list, I’d know their main singles but I wouldn’t buy their albums and so never saw the need to learn their names XD

    If you’d put After School on the list and Nine Muses, Dalshabet, Block B, Girl’s Day.. I would’ve done better..well that’s my excuse!

  497. I would’ve named all the Shinhwa members as well. And this comes after watching almost all episodes of Shinhwa Broadcast, this is how I got into this group like no other group before…

  498. i only consider 11 members for actual suju, not including sub group members.. and i mean hangang left…. and kibum vanished into thin air….. ah, please dont kill me, i love them just as much.

    anw i got 109 points for the youtube list, and 200 for the one here. guess that’s not too bad.

  504. Honestly, I can’t believe I know 53 kpop artists names, and that’s just of the ones on your list. No wonder I’ve been forgetting basic English words the past two years. All those variety shows and kdramas have ingrained more artists names into my head then I ever imagined. I say this because there are many on your list that I don’t listen too, but I know some of the members of the groups. XD

    Now ask me about non kpop artists names and I could tell you next to none of their names because outside of kpop I listen to music just for music, and even a lot in kpop too. Unless it’s the lead singers of my favorite bands like Eddie Vedder, Maynard James Keenan and Trent Rezon (but I learned these all in high school).

  505. I only known completely the names from all SM artists. Just last year I only knew who Tiffany, Yuri, Sunny (I confused her with another member too) and Jessica were. Super Junior took me like five years too, because before I didn’t even bother to know who was who but Heechul. And I used to confuse Sehun and Baekhyun a lot.

  511. lin

    Exactly 119 points, I didnt know 5/7 infinite members, FT island (all), and forgot the name of one B1A4 member so…
    But I should be given extra bonus points becuz I can even name former members, I know all 13 members of SJ, I know 8 members of Tara (and also Dani who isnt in the group but is in the sub unit). And by the way, you guys put 4 next to Kara, but there are really 5 members: Jiyoung, Nicole, Hara, Seungyeon, and the leader Gyuri….oh so technically I got 120 points becuz I remember the extra member from Kara that you missed out.

    so since I have gotten 120 points, I WILL HURT YOU! How can you guys not KNOW AFTER SCHOOL???!!! In the video, you guys only named UEE! I know After School isn’t as popular as other groups but HELLO!!!!!! Their sub unit Orange Caramel is really well known and SIMON! You always sing “Lipstick stick seugo” but you said you liked them but you couldn’t name them? Raina? Nana? Lizzy? NO???? NOT AT ALL?

  512. I’m starting to replace my normal vocabulary with kpop terminology (but in reality I’m just an EXO fan that knows the big groups hehe jk). I cannot believe I forgot two of the names of SISTAR members! Eh as long as I like they’re music right?

  521. I agree that you don’t have to know everything about a group to be a fan. I know a lot about EXO, my absolute favorite group ^^ and the names and some other info about SHINee, Big Bang, and Infinite because they are my next favorites…but then there’s groups like B2ST (Batoost lol), B1A4 (Bilasa haha), U-KISS, etc. whose music I really like a lot but I don’t have time to find out everything about them lol so I just listen to their music and wish them tons of success. :)

    PS: I haven’t taken the test yet…idk, I think I’ll get like half of them right XD
