HORI7ON Named as One of the ‘Male Idols Who Shined in the First Half of 2024’

Global K-pop group HORI7ON earned top spot as one of the hottest acts in the industry, claiming the top spot in Forbes Korea’s “Male Idols Who Shined in the First Half of 2024” category.

This prestigious win comes as part of the 6th Forbes Korea K-pop/K-entertainer Awards (FKA), held in collaboration with Idol Champ, the global fandom platform. From May 16th to June 12th, fans worldwide cast their votes, and HORI7ON emerged victorious, defeating a strong field of 12 other K-pop groups. Their impressive 68.64% share of the votes is a testament to their immense global popularity and powerful fanbase.

Formed through the hit Korean-Filipino survival show “Dream Maker,” HORI7ON (comprised of members Vinci, Kim, Kyler, Reyster, Winston, Jeromy, and Marcus) officially debuted in 2023 with their full-length album “Friend-SHIP.” Since then, they’ve wasted no time making waves in the K-pop scene. Their trophy cabinet boasts multiple local and international music awards, and their music has consistently topped global charts.

HORI7ON’s latest single, “LUCKY,” showcases a vibrant high-teen concept and has been met with critical acclaim from fans. They’ve also been actively promoting in both Korea and the Philippines, further solidifying their cross-cultural appeal and growing influence.

This FKA win marks another significant milestone in HORI7ON’s meteoric rise. With their momentum at an all-time high, fans around the world are eagerly awaiting their next moves. One thing’s for sure: HORI7ON is unstoppable, and their future shines bright.

    Oppa is Life is a fan page created in 2019 when I felt the need for another virtual space to pour out my feels, musings and fangirl experiences. It started as a Facebook fanpage but I later on decided to open other social media accounts because a single Facebook page just doesn’t feel enough.
