What dragging? It's an honest question what did he do to earn position in the list? I could name you much powerful accomplished idols, like Taeyang who sold over 10M records or Taemin who's doing amazing, Zico? Jay Park? And the list goes.


The entire Guardian list is stupid tbh, like some names on the top 10 I've never heard of them or their bands, and some who debuted 2 years ago and did nothing special are way higher than the one that did.

JImin is multi-talented, can sing, is releasing his own songs etc. Don't drag down other people to uplift your faves. If GD was as popular and as talented as you proclaim, he'd be reconiged worldwide and be in Jimins position right now, would he not?

Not saying that Jimin is not good enough but it just feels like there is pretty limited exposure of other kpop groups other than BTS who is the trend now. Something like availability heuristics. There are other BTS members or kpop group members who are perceivably better than those on the list but since the British are more familiar with western singers, they made the list instead. Just inevitably biased so read with a pinch of salt. GD's achievement is undeniable though.

Jimin is my ultimate bias tbh, but I am pretty sure he ended up on that list because of the few instances he became viral on twitter. Like "the guy in the silver jacket", "guy in red suit at America's got talent = most beautiful man in the world" then twitter going crazy for a 7 seconds clip of Jimin everybody asking who he was. Even by the description, it doesn't seem to be about his skill, which is incredibly sad because he's very talented.

Yes, GD-hyung is praised again, as usual tho. And let's it continues.

About Jimin, Although Jimin is my bias, I would say if they need to choose someone from BTS to include then it should have been RM, because he was the leader and wrote almost all BTS's songs.

I'm so happy for both of them. GD is an amazing artist who has been through a lot and has achieved many things in many aspects and Jimin, well I'm not a stan so I don't know much but from what I've hear and seen on news from time to time he too has achieved many things alongside BTS, and he still has a long path beforehand to leave many marks in history.


Either way it's a huge bonus for Kpop that has started to be known so widely. Hopefully in the future we'll see many other idols appearing on such lists and many others. They deserve to be noticed after all the stress and hardwork they do.

I don't see why Jimin's name has been mentioned rather than Jungkook who has been selected The Most Popular KPop Idol in the world currently by Billboard-Tumbler. If for the lame reasons showing abs and changing hair colour needed to be on the list, I think it was Jungkook again. Only Jungkook did changed hair colour/style regularly. Only Jungkook showed his abs while rendering Fake Love and the whole world knew about it. Jimin never showed his abs for Serendipity. This must be an obsessive fan who provided a wrong info to Guardian. I wasn't surprise as Jimin's LGBT fans love to create sensation for him simply to make him be recognised as he is the worst member of BTS presently due to his Cracking Voice Syndrome (CVS).

Kindly go through the Billboard-Tumbler list for 2018 which was just released. Don't assume Jimin is more popular simply because you are obsessed with him. Look at the quantifiable data published by Billboard how popular Jungkook is in relative to Jimin. Those professionals in the music industry knows who actually is the best in BTS. Jimin has perennial Cracking Voice Syndrome that made his voice worst lately. In terms of dancing, there are better dancers than Jimin in South Korea now. Fyi, Jhope is a better dancer than Jimin in BTS. Fyi also, Jungkook has been chosen as one of the 5 vocalist cum Idol who could sing & dance awesomely. To your surprise, Jimin's best friend Taemin is also on the list but not Jimin.

So we now know where are the downvotes come from lol

Anyways congratulation to both of them. Its really rare that Guardian will recognized kpop celebrities.

You shouldnt deny how much BTS impact the US view about kpop.

And it just means both of them have the great qualities in getting the recognition. Just be happy for them.

You just proved you are a solo stan.... Jimin doesnt appear popular but he's the most popular member of BTS..... Y'all are just hyping the maknae becoming hot and mature... Plus jimin accidentally showed his abs during serendipity in london concert.... Jungkook doesn't constantly dye hair as jimin for your info

Jimin's voice might not be as powerful as jk's but it's more interesting and soothing, yass jhope is a better pop dancer than jimin but jimin is a wide range dancer with amazing stage presence.. He's talented in all areas of dance and his dance is so refined and mature.... He knows all the basics of dance... He doesn't give just anyhow stage... This is just a lil bit about MOCHI!!
