As K-Pop music continues to garner fans across the world, US hip-hop magazine XXL, listed off its top five choices for the hottest K-Pop female rappers. Included in the list were Yoon Mirae, 2NE1’s CL and Minzy, 4minute’s HyunA and Wonder Girls Yubin.
The magazine stated that HyunA is
“An extremely hot commodity in K-Pop.”
2NE1, who are also acknowledged in overseas countries, made it to the list. According to XXL, Minzy
“has all the rapper traits coordinated down to the smallest detail” and CL “The self-claimed, ‘Baddest-Female,’ boasts superstar qualities on all forefronts.”
XXL describes Yubin as
“A respected talent in the realm of K-Pop idols” and wrapped up the list with Yoon Mirae as, “Often praised within the Korean music scene as the best rapper in the country, hands down.”
HyunA is eye candy indeed but as one of the hottest K-pop rappers she couldn’t compare to Mirae at all. Minzy is more of a vocalist/dancer than anything. What about Brown Eye Girls Miryo, E.via, Gilme, and f(x)’s Amber rapping ability? Those girls are really good compared to some of the ladies on the list. But I guess eye candy is more important than actual talent. I’m not knocking Yubin, CL, or Mirae because those ladies are amazing. But it’s sad to see that sex appeal is more important than rapping skills.
