[Best of the Best] Top 5 Girl Group Visuals 2012

Being the visuals of a girl group isn’t easy.  They are often criticized as not being able to sing as well as the other members, or maybe they don’t dance as well.  It’s not something that you can train to be either.  Here I’ll discuss the top 5 girl group members I feel just simply are the best looking.

*edited* See the list for 2014 here

5.  Goo Hara – Kara

Easily the most recognizable face in her group, Hara’s popularity skyrocketed after her appearance in the original season of Invincible Youth.  She’s also well known in Japan for her similarity to popular singer Amuro Namie.  She also recently made her acting debut in the drama “City Hunter”, for which she won the New Star Award from the SBS Drama Awards.  Though many doubt her vocal abilities, very few doubt her beauty.

4.  Jung Soojung(Krystal) – f(x)

I’m a huge fan of her sister, Jessica of SNSD, but even I’ll admit that Krystal is the looker in the family. Despite turning only 18 later this year, the younger Jung has already proved her talent in singing and acting.  Already she is lead vocalist for f(x) and recent released her first solo drama OST, which you can listen to here.  She has also had roles in 2 sitcoms: “More Charming by the Day” and “High Kick 3: Revenge of the Short Leg.”  With further development, Krystal could easily become one of the most versatile idols in the industry, along with being one of the best looking already.

3.  Park Jiyeon – T-ara

While fellow member Hwayoung might be the newest member, Jiyeon is the real maknae in terms of age.  Since her debut, fans have brought up similarities between her and actress Kim Tae Hee.  However, as she has matured in age, so has her looks.  The cute girl that debuted in 2009 has given way to the hot idol that fans have seen in T-ara’s latest promotions.  Like Hara, she has been criticized for her singing abilities, however she has drawn rave reviews for her abilities as an actress.  You can read reviews for her latest drama, “Dream High 2” here.  Though she might have a more mature look now, fans that miss the cute 18 year old Jiyeon need not fear as she’s still more than capable of pulling off the look, as she showed in a recent episode of “Dream High 2”.

2.  Im Yoona – SNSD


There are many reasons why Yoona is one of the most well known faces in Kpop today, the first of which is she’s just plain gorgeous.  She’s always listed near the top of any looks poll, and many fellow celebrities have chosen her as their ideal type.  Like some of the others on this list, she is not known for her vocal abilities, but she has the most impressive acting resume.  Already she has had 2 supporting roles in dramas, and lead roles in 2 others.  Yoona will also star in KBS’s “Love Rain” this year, which is set to begin airing on March 26th.  You can read more about Yoona and the previously mentioned Jiyeon here.  Though she is the oldest on this list, she is still only turns 22 this May and will no doubt remain one of Kpop’s brightest and most beautiful stars for years to come.

1. Bae Suzy – miss A

Many people were drawn to Suzy’s fresh-faced beauty when she debuted in the summer of 2010, and a year and a half later, she’s done nothing but make even more fans.  She made her acting debut in the popular “Dream High” last year, and though she received generally negative reviews for her role as Go Hyemi, she was determined to improve herself.  To this end, she will be making her film debut this year with “Introduction to Architecture”.  She is also part of the cast of the second season of Invincible Youth.  You can read more about her and the previously mentioned Krystal here.  Like her friend Krystal, she only turns 18 later this year, and will continue to captivate fans with her talent and beauty.

Who’s on your top 5 list?

    Oddly enough having mentioned the singing ability of four people on your list, you neglected to mention Suzy’s singing ability. I believe out of the 5 girls you listed, Suzy is probably the best singer of the group.

    Krystal’s voice sounds so much like Sica to me that I don’t see why I have to like her over Sica, besides being more beautiful, beauty in the eye of the beholder, I’ve always preferred Sica, I love Sica’s readily acceptance of her uselessness in household matters.

    • kpopencarta March 27, 2012 at 8:40 am

      Slight oversight on my part for not mentioning her vocal abilities, though I do cover that in the link to her battle with Krystal. Personally, I would argue Krystal as having the better voice, but they’re close enough in terms of vocal talent that it could go either way.

      I completely agree that as an overall package Sica beats her sister hands down in my mind. However, in terms of just pure visuals, I give Krystal a slight edge.

    • dala March 20, 2015 at 6:09 am

      it’s not odd because Suzy isn’t a good singer. on the list at least 2 of the girls are better singers (Krystal, Jiyeon), ALL 4 are better dancers and 3 of the girls are better performers (Hara, Jiyeon, Yoona). Suzy has no stage presence other than being the pretty girl in a group of 3 other average to ugly members

  2. ryannesalve April 10, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    Of the names listed here, I still prefer Jiyeon and Suzy.

  3. Stella Jungzz May 10, 2012 at 6:56 am

    1. Dara 2ne1

    • Krystal Mae March 4, 2014 at 4:25 am

      sorry but what is the talent of dara? does she has any? why she should be no. 1? sorry but honestly speaking she doesn’t have any talent

      • Anonymous April 10, 2014 at 11:02 am

        dara can sing better than yoona… (specially live performance)
        VISUAL=DARA a total package no surgery…
        dara may not be the best voice of 2ne1 but she can sing better than the other viSUal of the group…

        questioning of DARA’S….

      • Ashii July 31, 2014 at 6:12 am

        You Don’t Know what are You saying for Maybe dara have a little voice or just mild But she can Do it Live or In any Of their performances So Don’t Compare The Total Package Live Performance Than To A Plastic Surgery Or Walking Skeleton HMP.. 😉

  6. prettyME.F. May 26, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    for me, of all the names mentioned above, Krystal has the most remarkable voice. i don’t know why dara is not on the list.. maybe because she’s not as young as them. but still, i prefer her as the prettiest. she has the natural beauty and she looks very young despite of her age. she may not be the best singer or dancer, i like her personality…^^

    • kpopencarta May 27, 2012 at 2:31 am

      As my friend thekoreanjjang can tell you, age really isn’t an issue for me lol. Just was never was too fond of Sandara is all. She is pretty, though.

  8. hanyqasong August 31, 2012 at 1:58 am


  9. YeParkies123 September 16, 2012 at 4:11 am

    top 5 :

    1 ~ Park YeEun ( Wonder Girls )
    2 ~ Ahn Sohee ( Wonder Girls )
    3 ~ Hyerim Woo ( Wonder Girls )
    4 ~ Min Sunye ( Wonder Girls )
    5 ~ Kim Yoobin ( Wonder Girls )

  10. Shadel November 23, 2012 at 12:51 am

    For me, the TOP 5 lists above are also my TOP 5, but I would change Jiyeon & Yoona ranking.
    1. Suzy
    2. Jiyeon
    3. Yoona
    4. Krystal
    5. Hara
    *** It’s hard for me to choose between Suzy & Jiyeon, I love BOTH of this two, I don’t know why, but I am not really a fan of K-pop before, but it’s because of Dream High I became a K-pop lovers as well (yes, that’s right) Suzy is the reason why I become a K-pop FANATIC & searching about idols, that’s why for me she’s number 1, although I love Jiyeon too as much as I love Suzy. They were both pretty, cute, & talented. Miss A & T-ara as well impressed me w/ their songs “Goodbye Baby”, “Bad Girl Good Girl”, “Touch” & the latest “I Don’t Need A Man”, for T-ara, I am hooked w/ their “Roly Poly”, “Cry Cry”, “Lovey Dovey” & their latest “Sexy Love”, (of course, Yoona, Krystal & Hara are pretty & talented too, but Suzy & Jiyeon really STANDS OUT in my heart as a FAN). Yoona comes next because I love SNSD & I know SNSD even before I am hooked w/ idols, I am not really a fan of f(x) where Krystal is a member, but I love her song “Calling Out” w/ co-member Luna (as one of Cinderella’s Sister OST), Hara is the last because “Same Heart” is really one of my favorite k-pop song before I became a K-pop fan.

    • Shadel May 13, 2015 at 11:53 pm

      This comment of mine was last 2012…and now 2015 I’ll change my answer

      1. Jiyeon – my gawddd….I love Suzy too but Jiyeon is a BIAS wrecker…she’s a total package…if people just know her more she’s totally lovable and a sweetheart…VISUALLY I always find her the most beautiful one since the first I saw her…but my love to Suzy that time is above limit that’s why I place her second…but now I’m sure Jiyeon is #1.
      2. Suzy
      3. Yoona
      4. Krystal

      only these 4 is my FAVORITE one

      • kpopencarta May 14, 2015 at 8:51 am

        omg! im exactly the same. jiyeon is goddess. agreed with the whole package thing, face, figure, dance skills, singing, mc, acting, modeling. but her real personality is the true bias wrecker. she just too adorable if only people will take some time and watch her variety show/tara games show

    I prefer this list as my Top 5:
    1. T-ara’s Jiyeon
    2. SNSD’s Yoona
    3. Miss A’s Suzy
    4. IU
    5. f(x)’ Sulli

    Well, these girls are all my biases. I love Sulli for her lovely smile; IU for her innocent look; Suzy for her cuteness; Yoona for her charms; and Jiyeon for her cool & mysterious personality, and her undoubtedly gorgeousness.

  29. L June 30, 2013 at 5:52 pm

    *nods* I agree to you. Jiyeon is my bias eversince she debuted. Her eyes are captivating. She’s attractive and has cool personality. I once read that Jiyeon will be your greatest opponent if she meet a bad person. I love her for that. And she tried to overcome her fear of heights and water for the sake of her acting career. I love her passion for things. Such a hardworking girl. Hwaiting, Jiyeon unnie! ❤

  34. Snsd GG August 27, 2013 at 1:29 am

    For me–

    1st-Yoona=For ur information,yoona just make plastic surgery on her nose only.She also has 1795 fanboys and fangirls in korean.
    2nd-Suzy=But suzy and dara make plastic surgery on their face.suzy has 1254 fanboys and fangirls.
    3rd-Dara=She has 1250 fanboys and fangirls.

    So the kpop girls who has a natural face is Yoona.Suzy and Dara are 0ut..

    This is a true facts from the doctor who is surgery yoona nose,suzy and dara face.The doctor also said that before yoona made a plastic surgery,she already has a natural face.

    So,yoona snsd are natural.

    • MyungZy October 5, 2013 at 4:57 am

      FYI, Suzy hss natural beauty! She doesn’t have any plastic surgery, but she had Teeth Lamination and it doesn’t count as surgery! See her pre debut photos. I assure you! =P

    • rinsuzy August 25, 2014 at 11:48 am

      Hey,, you betting shut your fu***ng mouth..suzy did not do any plastic surgery. ..know the truth first and do whats next…alsoo, who’s the doctor that only you have known…if it was true they would never deny…im yoona, what is so special about her? Suzy she is KOREANS FIRST LOVE….

  37. candiesweet December 28, 2013 at 12:14 am

    My Top 5 Group Visuals:
    1) Park Jiyeon; her eyes are the most captivating part of her. It looks cold, but it’s actually adorably expressive. I also love her nose and legs, it’s very perfect. And obviously, she’s the most chosen best face even by fellow idols.
    2) Im YoonA; she has innocent looking face that fans adores about her.
    3) Im Nana; she’s just so undeniably gorgeous.
    4) Bae Suzy; well, a natural pretty face that got many men’s heart taken.
    5) Choi Sulli; her smile is sooo adorable and she’s lovely.
    It’s my own list, though, so I hope you won’t question why do I put her there, ‘coz it’s only my insight.

    • kpopencarta December 28, 2013 at 12:34 am

      this is actually pretty close to my current list. The only substitution I’d make is for the 5th spot, which probably goes to either T-ara’s Eunjung or After School’s Jooyeon

    suzy bae is the most visual idol female group more than yoona,krystal,jiyeon and hara. .suzy is the real queen of south korea kpop girl and why she must be number 1 from the list because she multitalented girl that’s why she have a lot love from boys,girl or ahjuma and ahjussi in korean. .i dont know, i am girl but i cant catch my eye from suzy because she like my eonni and mom for me 🙂 suzy bae the real queen of kpop idol girl group,love you suzy eonni

  40. exo xo February 25, 2014 at 1:07 am

    Krystal is not a Visual Sulli is. I think Dara should be their and Suzy must 2 or 3. Or Yoona should be 1 or 2, then Sandara should be 1 or 2 okay this is not official then. So I think this page is just being bias bout this poll.

    Yoona always won ab’t the most prettiest asian girl award.

  41. exo xo February 25, 2014 at 1:09 am

    But well for me this is,
    1 Yoona
    2 Sandara

    majority result,yoona is #1 in terms of beauty perspective.and she is considered as natural beauty in korea,means, she does not undergo any plastic surgery,,and somehow shes the reason why their group stay in the top until this moment…
