    i personally think IU and shk are lower than they should be. shk have more pull than sjk, to think the glory is on its peak.


    Glory was this year, I assume the data for this is compiled from early/mid 2022 to early/mid 2023. SJK had a hit drama Vincenzo last year.


    fraud list, i didn’t see seventeen and twice


    That’s what makes it legit cause those two are flops


    nobody gaf about them 😂

    Like Crazy

    nobody cares about seventeen lmao but seeing bundlepink instead of Twice the biggest gg makes this list irrelevant


    The gap between BTS’ points and the #2 on the list 💅


    the kings are n1 like always 💅

    dr dee

    where straykids, exo , nct & 17? 😂
    their fans are 24/7 loud about bts lmaoooooo


    In your mind 24/7


    They have been on hiatus for almost 11 months, but BTS is still #1, that’s power.

    bundlepink sneak


    song joongki, lee seunggi & nam joohyuk are there bcs of scandals though, not bcs they are top celebs. The metric almost certainly has things like retweeted or ranking on search engines. These favor those who have scandals a lot. But that doesn’t mean very popular, it’s just very hated and scandalized.


    4. As expected, BLACKPINK climbed to 3rd placeㅋㅋㅋㅋ

    Peak comedy! How is going to 3rd place from 2nd place last year was considered “climbed”?? Then again, their musics r for dumb people


    Only BTS has the actual clout
