G-Dragon & T.O.P of Big Bang
Why are two pretty boy K-Pop idols on this list you ask? Quite simple. Because if it wasn’t for acts like these two, Korean rap probably wouldn’t have amassed such international appeal that it’s garnering now. Though the two multifaceted entertainers debuted as members of a quintet known as Big Bang, as G-Dragon admitted with XXL, [they'd] “like to be remembered as a rapper.” K-Pop’s currently full of boy bands with designated rapper as a member, and nine out of ten times they’re modeled after these two. Unfortunately, unlike GD and T.O.P, other acts can’t lock in a collabo with Diplo as their single, or have posse cuts with label mates for good measure.
