5 K-pop groups that produce their own music

Check out some groups that, like BTS, are responsible for producing their own music

In the world of music, it is common for many artists to sing tracks created by producers and composers specialized in the subject. Likewise, there are singers who decide to give a more personal touch to their art, and choose to personally participate in the process of producing and composing their own songs — where many even perform the same work for other stars.

Within k-pop, this is no different. Although, in many cases, agencies still maintain strict control over the concept of groups and their music, currently, this scenario has changed and, every day, we see more formations gaining the freedom to work on their own tracks.

In BTS, for example, it is extremely common to see albums filled with songs composed and produced by the members themselves — whether from the group’s albums or their solo releases.

With this in mind, RECREIO separated a list of five groups that, like BTS, also produce their own music. Check out!

1. Stray Kids
