Some K-Pop hits are actually co-written by idols.

- EVNNE, EXO’s D.O., AKMU, BTS’s Jungkook, And FIFTY FIFTY Top Circle Weekly Charts
Many K-Pop idols are not only record and performance artists but also producers and songwriters. In the early stages of the scene, idols in the past usually did not participate in creating or composing music as they are seen today. Of course, the times have changed, and more and more idols are directly involved in song creation and production.
For many idols, playing this role is very meaningful. Because of considering the singing or performing of each group member, they can also directly plan and create according to the needs of the performance. Some K-Pop hits are actually co-written by idols. Although they may not have written their own songs, their colleagues are very satisfied with the songs they have produced.
