'Sports Chosun' revealed their results for girl group rankings of 2015 using fans' rankings that were posted onto a recent online community entitled 'Girl Group Rankings to Look at for Fun' as the foundation. They also added in the stances and opinions from 10 girl group representatives.




As you can see in the chart, the first ranking is entitled 'The Uncrossable Wall of the 4th Dimension,' meaning a ranking that is hard to enter.  It consists of Girls' Generation, 2NE1, and SISTAR with Girl's Day making their way into that tier. The article noted that while Girls' Generation and 2NE1 remain in this top star tier, this wasn't completely satisfactory, either, saying that the former's competitiveness was greatly falling while 2NE1 lost their chance.  'Sports Chosun' predicts a large change here next year, calling these two groups 'An Uneasy First Place.'

In the second tier entitled 'National Constituency,' A Pink snugly sat in the spot alone, although it was noted that AOA was quickly rising into the tier--just not there quite yet.  




A Cube's deputy Kang Yoon Shik said regarding AOA, "Their musical development isn't bad and they're a group that succeeded after changing to a sexy concept," while Dream Tea Entertainment's diretor Na Sang Chun said, "They're consistently maturing and garnering recognition, so they're a group whose future promotions I look forward to."


In the third 'High Society' tier, groups SECRET, f(x), 4minute, and KARA snugly ranked there with the note that f(x) went down one while KARA went up one.


In the fourth 'Mania Floor' are EXID (first entry), miss A (down one), and Nine Muses.  The most interesting one is EXID, who suddenly rose to fame this year. Starship Entertainment's Director Seo Hyun Joo said, "They're a group that created the term 'forced comeback' after gaining hot interest from men through member Hani's fancam.


The article also raised up the question of Suzy, who has been promoting alone for a long time due to her immense popularity.  One rep, who asked for anonymity, stated, "Because [Suzy's popularity] is lasting, the group in its entirety is steadily losing its strength," while another stated, "It's a group that has absolutely no meaning without Suzy."


The next tier, 'Popularity Maginot Line,' includes T-ara, Dal Shabet (down one), Crayon Pop (down one), and Hello Venus.  The last tier, 'Candidate Group,' include BESTie and lots of impressive rookie groups like MAMAMOO, Red Velvet, G-Friend, and SONAMOO.  




SM Entertainment's Head of Department Kim Eun Ah said, "G-Friend are gaining attention from male fans recently for their refreshing image while SONAMOO was attention-grabbing with their powerful dance and strong image.  MAMAMOO is, as expected, receiving a lot of attention as a talented rookie group."  Director Jung Won Jung said, "Red Velvet has enough potential when it comes to expectations because they're SM's new girl group."

I love 2NE1 AND SNSD but its getting lonely at the top. Other groups need get up there. There needs to be a lot of competition. No one is really competing. Everyone is taking turns.

Overall, it shouldn't matter where your favorite group(s) stands, as long as you love and support them, they will appreciate you as their loyal fan.

Almost 10 years since I've been a fan of Kpop, and the situation still hasn't changed, if not turned even worse. Fanwar is still going strong, whether it's an old fandom or the new one. ;

Seriously, if someday, maybe in some fantasy future, there is someone who could make peace between fandoms in Kpop, that man/woman deserves a Nobel Peace Price.

yeah, show us the albums,digital,physical and other sales. You wouldn't even believe how this ranking would turn out. and I'm saying this because Apink deserves better than that. ;

No. Sistar and Girls Day aren't even close to 2ne1 &Girls Generation -.-' ;

I quit like girls day and sistar but they are lower than those two...

I think: Unbreakable wall: 2NE1, SNSD

Wall: Sistar, Girls Day

Then the rest are right the way they are. But I would add Lovelyz for candidate level

HAHAHA that last line... saying how RV have potential because of the company they're in, not for their own strengths. I'm not saying it's not true, cos it is, but I'm just genuinely loving the attitude here. there's a reason why big three is big three. xD

you know what ? since, the two legends already make a real unbreakable spot in Kpop industry, i see most of their fans already stop the war and it was good . i love both . but now as i read all these comment, we can say, the fanwarII between Pink Panda and Dai5y getiing hot, harsh, annoying and fun to read. kkkkkk . believe me, if u real fans of either Apink or GsD, u should stop bashing others. this rank was made by people opinion not all those physical sale, digital sales or what so, of course people are biased. maybe most of staff they ask were GsD fans ? well, I am not saying GsD is better than Apink because i dont really listen to their music. so, before its getting worse like what happen to BJ and Sone before this , u people should stop. ;


*i have no class tommorow, and i really i want to spend my whole night read all this comments. *grab popcorn* ;

@kira_mranda u know what ? i think T-ara is more famous outside of Korea. but in Korea they dont really get too many attention plus too many girl group debut nowadays. it is same thing for CNBlue, they dont really famous in Korea sorry they are famous but compare CNBlue with other boy group they dont really get attention. but I believe CNBlue is quite famous in Japan, Europe and others countries. and about GsD will become new legend after SNSD and 2ne1, i think they should surpass Sistar first . haha . chill .
