Twice and WG killing it!! G-Friend are doing well for themselves, but if Twice has a comeback before the year is done they'll surpass them. WG too finally getting their name back. 2016 is the year of JYP!!

What's the purpose of this ranking?

wonderboy47 federick Monday, August 15, 2016

I think it's basically to show the most popular groups for the month based on how much engagement they are getting from the general public/fans. It's like saying Community = How many people are talking about the group and how the group is engaging them back. Also includes the impact the group has on the public (like Twice's Shy Shy Shy movement). Reputation = How easily the public can recognize the group and how highly they value the group. Communication = I would assume show and radio appearances go into this category.

I don't usually agree with negative comments; however, let's just say agree with you about Twice and I think the same.

Tbh it changes whenever the 3 monster rookies have a comeback ,like Twice was number 1 when they came back ,so now that Gfriend had their comeback in the last month they are number 1 ,i bet IOI gonna be number for the next month list because they just came back and already broke the record for numbers of album sale in one week by a gg in 2016 ;)

Wazir Sunday, August 14, 2016

IOI number 1 *

IGOTBUDDIES Wazir Sunday, August 14, 2016

yep. i think that's the case too. I wouldn't be surprised even if Blackpink gets number 1 too within this year..
