On Friday, Feb. 5, Japan's most popular K-pop idol website Nehan revealed the top 10 most popular male idols in the country. Keep on reading to learn who are the top male idols in Japan!

BTS V Takes the Throne

Sitting at number one is BTS member V. He is the only male idol to have surpassed over 4,000 votes, making him not only the most popular male idol but the most popular K-pop idol in Japan in general. Additionally, he was also ranked as the most popular Korean actor on the drama version of Nehan site, Bihan, despite only acting in one drama since 2017, "Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth."

It has been reported that the aforementioned drama, as well as "Itaewon Class," became popular in Japan due to V's association with them. V released the song "Sweet Night" as part of the drama's soundtrack back in 2020.
