Also for Yoon Mirae,, who is married to Tiger JK, perhaps Korea’s most known rapper, XXL said she is “revered as an R&B/hip-hop artist, not so much as a K-pop star… [She] is often praised within the Korean music scene as the best rapper in the country, hands down.”

Surprisingly, Minzy was also included on the list, although the magazine noted that she’s known more for her singing and dancing abilities for than her occasional rapping. XXL says Minzy “has all the rapper traits coordinated down to the smallest detail.”

The article went onto say that Yubin’s “rapping forte [played] a crucial role in adding flavorful dosage of American-style braggadocio mixed with Korean-style sassiness,” while Hyuna was praised for “her consistent output as a well-rounded entertainer,” including her participation in Psy’s Gangnam Style.
