Impressive display of diligence! It’s clear you’ve soaked up quite a bit of K-pop trivia in the… well, who knows how much time it’s been since you’ve been submerged by the Korean Wave. You have the right to call yourself a true-blue fan, but maybe you can reach the level of a true OG someday? Fun fact: Creating the next big K-Pop idol can cost over 120 million Korean won (110,000 USD), but by “creating,” we don’t mean in a lab; the funds pay for their housing, vocal and dance lessons, foreign language learning, and related education.

About our Hard K-Pop Trivia Quiz

K-Pop is a labyrinthine fandom; it’s ridiculously easy to get lost in it, in one way or another.

Sooner or later, no matter how impervious you think you are to their clutches, your mental defenses are going to waver after some impressive feat of choreography, or killer music that got you to sing along even without knowing a shred of Korean, or seeing just the incredibly drop-dead faces and fashion that grace the genre today.

In making a hard quiz on K-Pop fun facts, you can never run out of new material since fans can know everything from where their idol grew up to what they had for lunch today.

Whether you’re into the new blood of ATEEZ, NewJeans, WayV, Le Sserafim or Stray Kids, smitten by the powerhouses of BTS, EXO or BLACKPINK, or you’ve been enraptured by the craze since the golden days of Super Junior, Girls Generation, and 2NE1, you really have to follow a lot of artists to be an expert on Hallyu music.

People might not think it’s humanly impossible to keep track of even a fraction of new K-pop groups and releases anymore, but you can be one of the sterling few who dare.
