i really think tha akp is made yg fan really like 2ne1 post about theyr view

kmac12314 Sunday, November 24, 2013

I'm happy that all these idols recognized LE and Baby J because they really are and sadly get over looked by alot of kpop fans since their respective groups aren't well known (even though Jewelry is a pretty big group in the name itself)

I find myself disagreeing on a few of these results, even if it's just on the order of the top 3

normalpersoniam Tuesday, September 10, 2013

yeah ! it is . GD, Taeyang,CL,Minzy and TOP are the best .. every one else also 'daebak' . ;

annasoll99 Thursday, September 5, 2013

Go Junsu!!!

chugly Saturday, August 24, 2013

Yeah, I'm sensing a huge bias in the comments and votes...

lilycinderella Sunday, July 7, 2013

I agree with most of them, but the best female vocalist should be Lee Hi or Park Bom,

and male vocalist should be Daesung, and best Ulzzang on place 2 should be Seungri.:)

ladyperona Sunday, July 14, 2013

I believe you have never seen Hyorin sings do you? No one in Kpop can stand a chance against that girl. No one.

atomickitten Thursday, July 18, 2013

Lee Hi is a good vocalist. Park Bom is terrible. Daesung is an OK singer. If you don't believe me, look up an analysis on their singing.

b2stiesone Monday, July 29, 2013

aren't you a lil biased towards YG? Don't be delusional :(.

atomickitten Monday, August 19, 2013

@ladyperona Hyorin's decent, but she's not the best. For example, the Grace's Lina is a good vocalist, Apink's Eunji is competent. Ailee is a great vocalist and the best in KPOP. (By the way, these are based on techniques and aren't biased in any way.)

kisekki Sunday, September 29, 2013

Lee Hi is a mediocre vocalist and bland singer. Where do people get the idea she has good technique and/or musicianship

talents90 Friday, July 5, 2013

Best rapper, i would say Gary should be on top
