BEAST, BTOB, INFINITE, others Named in List of Top Boy Groups of 2016
Soompi has released it's yearly Kpop round up and opened the voting for their Annual Soompi Awards. With it comes their list of the top boy groups of 2016. While some of the names on the list are obvious choices, there are a few that may surprise you.
It's not shocking to see EXO, BTS, GOT7, 2PM and SHINee on the list of top boy groups. They are all very successful groups who have done well in the past and have had great successes in 2016.
WINNER, iKON and CNBLUE also made the list despite controversy, scandal, injuries and line up changes this past year.
VIXX, BLOCK B and B.A.P- I am so happy these three groups have had such a great year. Each of them produced great music and fantastic stages. It's great they are getting the recognition they deserve.
The boys of SEVENTEEN have had an incredible year, working non-stop to bring new music to their fans, all year round. Making the list of top boy groups of the year is very impressive for a group just exiting their rookie-hood.
INFINITE is one of those underrated groups who really shouldn't be. After an amazing comeback with "The Eye" this year, they definitely belong on the list.
2016 was a year filled with changes, transitions and obstacles for the members of BEAST. But that didn't stop them from churning out a full-length album and topping this music charts.
Now in their 7th year since debut, BEAST still remains one of the most critically acclaimed underrated groups in Kpop. Here's to hoping the group and their fans can weather the transition from Cube to Around Us Entertainment in 2017 and find widespread success.
BTOB is so underrated it breaks my heart at times. They worked non-stop this year with multiple Korean and Japanese comebacks, a sub-unit debut, multiple OST tracks and constant promotions. They absolutely deserve to be on the list of groups that rocked Kpop in 2016.
Finally the Kpop world is starting to take note of BTOB and I couldn't be more thrilled to see them finally getting some recognition. I would definitely keep your eyes on BTOB in the years to come.

I personally think MONSTA X is missing from the list as they totally rocked in 2016. Who else is missing?

BTOB is another group that is bigger in Japan than Korea.... I think Monsta X and Astro should both make the list....and where is FT Island? FT Island seems to have been forgotten again.

I might be bias, but I think Boys Republic had a good year too. They should've got recognise for that. Sadly they are group that is more popular in Japan then Korea too
