Most Popular Kpop Boy Group Maknae?

Who’s the best K-pop Boy Group Maknae?

    He’s not part of a ‘boy group’ — more of a ‘man band’. But, my fave maknae is CNBLUE’s tall, funny, sweet, handsome, and multi-talented Lee Jung Shin.
    Jung Shin for the win! 😉

    In any case my vote obviously goes to Sungjong… but “quiet and gentle”??? Thats the last description i’d use for him, lmfao!

  • Ahhh the difficulties of choosing a Maknae when you are Multi-Fandom. Tbh, I have a very specific maknae ranking that goes something like this:

    1. Taemin (Cause I have been a SHINee fan since grade 7 and just adore Taemin unconditionally + have you seen his dancing!? + have you seen him and Jimin dancing together!!!??? Taemin + Jimin (2Min) dancing together = everything that I eternally need in my life.)

    2. Seungri (Cause I am mainly a VIP, and Seungri has one of the most hilarious and lovable personalities ever + his adorable relationship with GD + that lovely lovely voice)

    3. Jungkook (Cause he is the precious and evil baby of BTS. I don’t care how many people call Jungkook the “Golden Maknae”, he is just as evil as Seungri, Taemin, Kyuhyun – and every other maknae in existence + Dat voice, dat growth spurt, and dat adorable way that he always seems to end up hanging off of Jin’s hip no matter what he does + a side of Yugyeomie bromance)

    4. Kyuhyun (Cause he is the #1 most overly dramatic Maknae on this entire freaking planet. He is also evil, but he deserves to have his hyungs put up with his evilness, the poor little bb almost died in 2007 + HE HAS THE MOST ANGELIC VOICE EVER)

    5. I’m tied here between Ren from Nu’est (Cause he is a hilarious, easily embarrassed, little snowflake), and our adorable little shit Yugyeomie (Cause he constantly bickers with Eomma Jinyoung, and cause he’s just so Yugyeom, and cause his bromance with Jungshook is goals. *goes bowling with Jungkook, breaks rules by taking Jungkook to his dorm afterwards*)

  • Maknaes being as evil as Seungri just isn’t a thing. Seungri is the #1 most evil. He should seriously just lead a maknae revolution.

  • You could’ve voted for both :C

  • Yugyeomie is just so precious~

  • MarkLeeIsProbablyMySoulmate

    Hardest descision ever, cause Taemin, Sungjong, Sungjae, Zelo, Changmin and Ren are all my biases…

  • Mar Yelle

    sungjae sehun and specially jungkook

  • Chaelisa is life
  • Monneko Sentouki

    Jungkookie, Yugyeomie, Sehunie…why?? Because, BTS, EXO and GOT7 are my favorite boy group bands especially BTS😍😍cause their’s the golden maknae named “JUNGKOOK” and is close friends with Yugyeom that’s why i choose him too…to be honest my bias in GOT7 are Mark and Yegyeom but i really like Mark than Yeogyeom( but i still like Yeogyeom)
    Because Mark is not the maknae, that’s the reason that i choose Yeogyeom instead. Next is Sehun,not because in EXO is not Sehun but Baekhyun(great in singing) and Kai(great in dancing)😍 because the one of them are not include in the maknae, so i choose Sehun not because I’m a fan of EXO but because of his cuteness and tallness…😁😁😁 AND MOST OF ALL THE THREE MAKNAES THAT I CHOOSE, MY FAVORITE IS JUNGKOOK😍😍😙😙😘😘 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/eacfd4a694779dc35fb3d870c46a24c047d3da9177385418452aa00c261a8cb2.jpg
