DickPunks (Korean: 딕펑스) is a rock band based in South Korea, consisting of four members. The band was formed in November 2006, without a guitarist because the keyboard player, Hyun-Woo, wanted the band to be considered a piano-driven ensemble. Hyun-Woo formed the band by recruiting his friends as members.[1] The band has maintained the original line-up since its creation and is currently managed by the TNC Company.[2]

Though DickPunks was one of many bands in Hongdae, they were popular amongst their critics and often called "Hongdae Idol".[3][4] Wanting to expand their fan base, DickPunks decided to participate in Superstar K4. They finished the competition in second place in November 2012.[5]

All of the band's members are credited with composing and producing their music. In addition to their live performances, they also perform a separate choreographed act entitled the DICKPUNKSHOW.
