LOL SNSD didn't even make any group comeback this year and they STILL ranked. #Queens

Cherry_Peche Monday, January 16, 2017

Didn't realize April was decently popular for a group that comes from DSP, congrats to them, happy that they're finally releasing good songs and getting recognized!

I have never seen #SNSD 7th in any survey ... I wouldn't believe any of it .. no disrespect to the others.

They haven't had a comeback in forever. You should be happy they listed at all.

I guess Oh My Girl, promoting for nearly two years, doesn't get them to the top either. SMH. So, sick of them getting hardly any recognition, when they have been working their asses off. To the point that one of them got sick.

It's not the girls it's the company which does poor quality music and over used concept

k_kid OppaBean Monday, January 16, 2017

Rania has been promoting since 2011 and they're still not getting recognition even with their new song which sounds really good. Rainbow, Crayon Pop, ESPECIALLY Spica, etc. So many good groups and no one cares about them.

OppaBean k_kid Tuesday, January 17, 2017

I guess I like the underdog type. All the groups u mention I like too. So, upset when Rainbow, Kara, and Speed disbanded

OppaBean gigi9 Tuesday, January 17, 2017

The company does not produce poor quality music. Oh My Girl songs are great. Go check them in youtube, and you see all the comments are all positive. You will also see the words "underrated" a lot. What they do lack is sponsors. Plus they don't come from a big company that can give out loads of loads of money to promote them.

I understand where you're coming from and I also feel a little disappointed that OMG wasn't in the top spot. But can't we just be thankful that they were included in the ranking? Just because they weren't in the top spot doesn't they were doing poorly. It just so happens that there are groups that are valued by advertisers more. Be positive! 2017 will be Oh My Girl's year. If not, they're still one of the best.

adrianjayson13 gigi9 Friday, January 20, 2017

I'm not really sure why you think they have poor music and concepts and I have a strong feeling that you haven't watched most of their performances. You probably just seen one and already made cover of the book judgement, or you just have a really bad taste of music. Either way, you just have to admit it.

GG didn't even DO anything this year and they STILL list.

3percenter BigBlueagain Sunday, January 15, 2017

You call some pretty significant solo activities nothing? Taeyeon alone killed 2016.

nami_chan Sunday, January 15, 2017

congratulations to all the GG of the list,especially twice =).

once777 Sunday, January 15, 2017

my babies twice <3 and all the lovely groups <3

yelloworange223 Sunday, January 15, 2017

Is this based on the salary they receive,becouse apink naeun was acting and another member was on we got about snsd,almost every members was busy acting

tomh7259 yelloworange223 Sunday, January 15, 2017

No. I found this explanation by searching allKpop for the Institute: "The Korea Institute of Corporate Reputation created the brand index by analyzing consumer behavior through weighing various categories such as participation value, media value, communication value, and more."

tomh7259 yelloworange223 Sunday, January 15, 2017

"More" appears to be "Community Value". What exactly goes into all that is not defined, but it doesn't seem like salary to me.

katiehla yelloworange223 Sunday, January 15, 2017

I think "the bran value" is for the amount of media attention, and articles written about them. Soshi was individually very busy this year, but not as a whole group and didn't have any comebacks in 2016 as well...

Congrats to all the girl groups that made it to the list. It's nice to see AOA in the Top 3 :)
