[+218, -24] Why is AOA in National Level;; They didn’t even have a solo concert nor are they as widely popular as Sistar nor do they have a huge foreign fandom. Their fandom isn’t that big either. So why are they ranked so high?
[+189, -19] AOA shouldn’t really be ranked so high ㅋㅋㅋ Their album sales didn’t do that great nor do they have a huge fandom. Are you an AOA fan?
[+149, -55] You should leave 2NE1 out they’re pretty much beyond recovery!!!
[+100, -11] 소What do you mean SNSD isn’t the undisputed champion ㅋㅋㅋ They’ve taken care of Korean fans so their popularity is crazy. And plus even if you add all national and international fans together you can’t even compare with SNSD.
