This was a very hard decision for me to make because there are countless of groups I love and only picking 10 was impossible but I somehow managed to do it. remember this is only my opinion, I’m sure there are other groups everyone else enjoys but these 10 were my favourite.
I hope you enjoy.

My love for 2pm is unimaginable. I am crazy about each and every one of them. Although I have only one bias in this group, I do not like any other group member greater than each individual member of this group.
Bias: Jang Wooyoung (who also has a solo song so check that out, it’s amazing)
Favourite song: I love all 2pm songs so It’s very hard to choose one. I think I’ll go with A.D.T.O.Y and HANDS UP
