T-ara & Their Queen's: 7 Sweetest Fan Interactions

Queen's are the fiercely loyal fanbase of the K-pop girl group who boast No. 1s in Korea (three on the K-Pop Hot 100), Japan (one on the Japan Hot 100), and made their debut on the domestic-based World Albums chart last year. Queen's have stuck by Qri, Eunjung, Boram, Soyeon, Hyomin and Jiyeon throughout the outfit's six-year history that's included loads of ups and downs.

On their road to victory, the Queen's beat extremely tough competition from Beyonce's Beyhive, 2PM's Hottest, Sistar's Star1, Girl's Day's Dai5y, CNBLUE's Boice and One Direction's Directioners. That last matchup was one of the most ferocious -- eliciting nearly three million voters to come support the teams -- and even caused a global hashtag to trend on Twitter, #WeLove1DandKpop, to show there were no hard feelings in the end.
