So, K-pop is all about being the best of the best (or at least working towards that goal) and every once in a while we like to encourage this friendly competition. So far, we’ve held tournaments to vote on the best idol dancer, vocalist, rapper, maknae, and flower boy. But there is one super important position in a group that we’re missing – the leader!

There have been entire odes written to the art of being a K-pop leader – because, honestly, it’s an art. When gathering your members looks a lot like this:

… you know that leaders have to have some special super power to pull their group to the top.

We’ve collected 48 top leaders who are known for working tirelessly towards the success of their group and we’re asking YOU to decide on the ultimate leader through a competitive tournament.

This competition is more exciting than ever, running solely on our Facebook page, with live poll voting open every weekday from 10 a.m. KST to 2 p.m. KST. Each round is an elimination round, with only the top voted leaders moving on. We’ve divided the tournament by gender – so you can vote for both your favorite girl group leaders and boy group leaders!

Check out the brackets and the dates for each round below:

Male Edition
