I'll get the ball rolling.

HeAlthough I rip current Kpop apart at every chance I get, I do like the old school stuff back from when I was in high school. Like H.O.T, Turbo, Fly to the Sky, S.E.S, etc. And some K-indie singers are alright, like Humming Urban Stereo, Lucite Tokki, and Yozoh. Epik High is pretty awesome. I also listen to some old old Korean grandpa music and bust it out at noraebang usually. But mainstream kpop totally blows
Take that apologists!

The Korean hip hop scene is pretty good these days!  I love Beenzino, Verbal Jint, Dynamic Duo, LeeSang and Zion T!

As for KPop, Big Bang is my guilty pleasure!

Yes I listen to it pretty frequently. There's a guy on Youtube under the channel name "Babo Park" and he uploads a lot of artists that even I didn't know about.

I saw Crying Nut and No Brain at a festival back in the states. They were all right. These days:

Donawhale is an incredible Korean indie band.  Very chill music.



Nell is also a very popular Korean indie band.

Kingston Rudieska are a lot of fun and put on quite the show.



Also, Funkafric Booster are a cool Funk band I saw in Gangnam a few times.

"Epik High" is not bad, although they came out years ago.
I'd rather spend 1000 winters in Korea than have to deal through one more summer.

Windy City was alright but you should've seen I&I Djangdan, a pansori-dub reggae project with many of the same members featuring Jang Goon, now the lead singer of Ninano Nanda.

Lots of great singers have already been mentioned. Of course, music isn't all about singing and most of the great bands I can think of aren't known for their singers in particular.

Here are some not already named here:

-Han Dae-soo, who was exiled from Korea in the '70s
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diyZpivceAg

-Billy Carter, a female blues duo that's been playing for a few years, having recently completed a year of living and touring abroad

-Midnight Smoking Drive

-Heimlich County Gun Club, a band fronted by a half-Korean soldier who used to be in Rux and Suck Stuff
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Heimlich-County-Gun-Club/400331236712701?fref=pb&hc_location=profile_browser

-Mukimukimanmansu, which is one of the weirdest things you'll ever hear
https://www.facebook.com/mukimukimanmansu?fref=pb&hc_location=profile_browser
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsXwz6B9Lmg

-Paryumchiakdan, a band heavily influenced by '60s Korean music
https://www.facebook.com/theinfamousorchestra?fref=pb&hc_location=profile_browser

I don't have time to go through the whole list, and there are a lot of other great bands that are more oriented to instruments than vocals.

Love all the suggestions on here :3 If you like really chill music 10cm is great and also Standing Egg. And hiphop gotta love Epik High but that was mentioned already.  Lately I've been getting into Geeks (긱스)
