K-pop groups have showcased multiple sides of their personalities on various occasions. Whether revealing their secret talents on talk shows or carrying out daily chores on Vlive sessions, they have found ways to connect with fans on a whole new level.
Immensely famous among the groups is a trend to hop onto TikTok and try out a new fad. They have done everything from dancing to the beats of songs by other artists to taking part in trendy challenges.
The process of creating something casual and candid for fans is fun and thus is thoroughly enjoyed. Perhaps, it is because of these reasons that K-pop groups and idols can't help but hop onto the train of TikTok trends.
Let's take a quick look at a few K-pop groups often spotted taking part in various trending TikToks.
