Do K-pop groups write their own lyrics, choreography, and produce?

Yes, they actually do. IU’s actually a great example of a “one stop shop” with talents that make k-pop. However there are songs that were ghostwritten. It’ll help to understand it better by learning the history, but there’s a big group of k-pop bands that run the genre. That, and a pool that are specifically self produced.

The artists it was found that it went to was Kim Chang Ryul and Jung Jae Yong.
