    I am your host. The one and only...
    FLAMING CHARISMA MINHO.
    Minho: Before I get to business, let me quickly introduce myself

    Key-PD: CUT! What are you dong? I said introduce yourself you imbecile!
    Minho: I'm afraid that I cannot do the rap without mentioning all the members.
    Key-PD: *glares*
    Minho: Fine...

    Ladies and gentlemen, I'm very proud and honoured to present to you...the ULTIMATE, UNSTOPPABLE, GROUNDBREAKING...

    Key-PD:
    Hurry up!
    Minho with megaphone: BOY GROUP DEBUT SINGLES RATE
    *​
    Yes yes, you heard me right unnies. While Minho and Key have gone backstage to have a quick brawl, let me take over. Boy groups have played an integral role in the heavily-fangirl driven world of Kpop. With the first wave of boy groups in the 90s delivering back-to-back hits to the general public, and amassing the 'first horde' of fangirls who created the modern phenomenon we like to call 'toxic fanculture'. But all toxicity aside, some of us are into Kpop for the brilliant pop hits and blinding visuals. So, what better way to appreciate these nice things than by going back to where our favourite boy groups first started?

    That's why I have adjourned the jury. I cordially invite all of you KPJ Noonas to rate the debut singles of some of our favourite boy groups. But before I lay out the ground rules, let's check out the groups you'll be rating: (Also thank you @Alouder98 unnie...I basically plagiarised your template...)

    Problematic Legends (1996-2007)
    These groups have all carved out their place in Kpop history with their hit songs, fair share of scandals and problematic members
    HOT - Candy
    TVXQ! - Hug
    Super Junior - Twins (Knockout)
    Big Bang - La La La

    National Icons (2008-2011)
    These were the groups that took turns being the 'nations group', 'top boy group' or whatever. Best known for being mostly invincible. Even with some member losses and scattered scandals, these groups have managed to survive this far with solid fandoms to boot.
    FTIsland - Love Sick
    SHINee - Replay
    2AM - This Song
    2PM - 10 Out Of 10
    BEAST - Bad Girl
    MBLAQ - Oh Yeah
    INFINITE - Come Back Again
    CNBLUE - I'm A Loner
    Teen Top - Clap
    B1A4 - O.K
    Block B - Freeze

    Infamous Nugus (2008-2014)
    These were the groups we all rooted for. The groups that everyone said they stanned and supported, the groups that topped the 'Top 10 Underrated Boy Groups' Polls...but when the groups needed us the most, we clutched our wallets and vanished...
    U-KISS - Not Young
    ZE:A - Mazeltov
    Boyfriend - Boyfriend
    MyName - Message
    100% - Bad Boy
    Cross Gene - La-di-da-di
    Speed - It's Over
    24K - Hurry Up
    DMTN - Round 1
    C-Clown - Solo
    Mr.Mr. - Who's That Girl
    History - Dreamer
    Boys Republic - Party Rock
    HIGH4 - Not Spring, Love or Cherry Blossoms
    The Legend - Left Out

    Hotshot - Take a Shot

    Sole Survivors (2012-2014)
    2012-2014 was a hard time for idol groups. The market had only just begin to become heavily saturated with the 'Golden Age' dying out. These were the groups who actually managed to survive the heat.
    B.A.P - Warrior
    BtoB - Insane
    EXO - Mama
    Nu'est - Face
    VIXX - Super Hero
    BTS - No More Dream
    GOT7 - Girls Girls Girls
    Winner - Empty


    Archangels of The New Wave (2017)
    2017 marks the year where standout rookies from The Hunger Games have made considerable progress, but are still struggling to 'hit big', while new groups are being formed and debuted. With the Big companies having less presence, these groups have been deemed by KPJ to be the finest newbies.
    Wanna One - Energetic
    ONF - On/Off
    Golden Child - Damdadi
    Top Secret - She
    A.C.E - Cactus
    Highlight - Plz Don't Cry

  7. Isn't What Is Love technically EXO's debut single (for both K & M)? I ask because it's 10000x better than Mama.

  8. Thank you! Please tell me you'll participate :')

    This is where I got stuck with a lot of groups, actually. A LOT of them had absolutely stellar pre-releases
    e.g.


    But to keep it fair for all the groups, I picked their 'official' debut singles. THAT SAID, please feel free to rant about how amazing 'What Is Love' is because I 100% agree that it's superior...along with 'History'.

  9. I didn't realize What Is Love & History were pre-releases ddd oops.
    I was gonna point out too that iKon had My Type before Rhythm Ta but I don't know if that was a pre-release either so ignore me.

  15. Uhh it's such a shame MAMA is EXO's debut, I mean I still like it, but every other comeback is so much better than it.

    I know I won't be participating in this but I just wanna say ... Plz don't do VIXX, Boys Republic, and MYNAME wrong. I love boys but ... I feel I would bring this rate's average down to the pits.

  17. Well a lot of the entries here are choices so please feel free to participate unnie!!!

    Also I love me some Sejun but Imma give my 11 to another love of mine. And no it's not NCT Dream.

  18. Oh please don't let that stop you from participating! You can't possibly bring the average down more than @Sanctuary already has. Plus, I'm sure there's plenty of us ready to throw points at the boys just for existing.

    @Alouder98 @eccentricsimply I expect you both to be delivering some high-level dragging

    @Monkey0 I will remember you unnie

    @Serg. Delulu Hunhan shipper spotted? (Just kidding unnie) Welcome!

    @Squashua Just as a disclaimer, most of the bad debuts occurred before the Hunger Games era, but I guarantee you will find some certified bops in there.
