We already know K-pop idols are multi-talented, but a lot of the time idols in groups get assigned roles for the areas in which they shine best. Maybe that's as main vocal or rapper or lead dancer. But that's not to say they don't have talents beyond that one role!

On Reddit, K-pop fans have been discussing rappers they think could be good vocalists too, and we've collated a list of some of our top picks based on their suggestions!

1. ASTRO's Rocky

He's already a great dancer, but based on his previous performances, he could be a great singer too.

2. BTOB's Minhyuk

Look, he's in BTOB which is basically a collection of king vocalists, so it's not too surprising Minhyuk can belt it out too.

3. BIGBANG's T.O.P

He's notoriously shy about his singing voice, but T.O.P has a really unique tone that you can spot a mile off in BIGBANG songs.

4. MAMAMOO's Moonbyul

Again, a rapper in a group of top vocalists, she is still a definitely talented singer amongst her fellow members.

5. EXO's Chanyeol

Chanyeol shows off his vocals moreso with acoustic covers that he posts online but let's not forget his turn in the heartbreaking "Stay With Me", plus his solo stages at EXO concerts.

6. INFINITE's Dongwoo

To be fair, as one Reddit user put it, he's a triple threat because his singing, dancing and rapping are all great. 

7. EXID's LE

LE has built a really strong reputation as a skilled rapper and lyricist, but she's also a gifted vocalist.

8. CL

Another rapper who has a very strong presence, she used to turn on the vocals easily during 2NE1's live shows, proving she has the skills in both styles.

9. BTS' Suga

His most recent solo song for Love Yourself: Answer displayed most clearly his potential as a singer, and surprised many fans in the process.

10. WINNER's Mino

Don't underestimate him! He's definitely known as a star rapper, but his vocals are also no joke.

11. B.A.P's Bang Yongguk

Those raspy vocals work both when he's rapping and he's singing. We want an entire album of that, please and thanks.
