Who is the most recognizable 3rd-generation male idol

By recognition I mean to know the name of the idol when you see his face or know the face when you hear his name. I personally think it’s Yook Sungjae and D.O.

BTOB Yook Sungjae who made his name known as an idol

“Goblin”, “School 2015” etc made him even more popular in the drama world

D.O. is known for being EXO D.O.

He gained recognition for his roles in various dramas such as “It’s Okay, That’s Love”,  “100 Days My Prince”etc
Except for these two, none of the 3rd-generation male idols come to this level of public recognition

Not just among young people, I’m talking about all generations!!!

+I think Cha Eunwoo is also popular

1.Cha Eunwoo

2.Cha Eunwoo and Kang Daniel?

3.Cha Eunwoo, V, Kang Daniel, Zico? There’s many

4.I personally think it’s Cha Eunwoo and Yook Sungjae! Zico won’t count since he made his debut in 2011 right?


6.Oh, I agree with you. Cha Eunwoo and Song Minho too

7.Just take a look at the yearly Gallup. Aside from the ones you mentioned, Kang Daniel, Cha Eunwoo and RM/Jimin/V/Jungkook

8.D.O.!! Adults around me like D.O.

9.All the adults around me know RM. Everyone complimented him when he appeared on the news for the UN speech

10.I agree with you if we’re talking about their individual popularity. You just need to add Cha Eunwoo too

11.What is the third generation exactly? Yook Sungjae Kang Daniel Song Minho and BTS

12.Isn’t it Kang Daniel?

13.Doesn’t your recognition become high when you’re an actor? I think it’s the 2 you mentioned

14.I think BTS is more famous for the group itself rather than individually, and for the individual popularity, I agree with op

15.Do Kyungsoo is known by many adults. His roles were so successful

16.My parents don’t watch dramas and variety shows, so they only who RM is

17.Jungkook! all of my mom’s friends like Jungkook

18.Song Minho, Kang Daniel and Cha Eunwoo?

19.My parents know D.O. because of Wondeuk (his role in 100 days my prince)

20.D.O, Yook Sungjae and Cha Eunwoo

  1. Jungkook and Cha eunwoo, reasons are because Jungkook is the most popular member of BTS and Cha eunwoo coz aside from being an idol he is also an actor


  2. Unbias opinion :

    Kyungsoo , Yook Sungjae
    -both are very well known for their acting skills, never get hate for their acting – awarded for their acting..I seriously got attached with their roles everytime
    -very talented in singing too , their vocals 👍
    -they didn’t depend on visual and popularity only but got skills to backup their career well
    Add on : sungjae is also excellent in variety field too – got awarded twice in entertainment award
    -both are serving in army now ( early age for celebrity 👏
