    Currently g-idle is taking the industry with two consecutive hits, a huge popularity as individual members, tons of variety shows and decent album sales.

    on the other hand, despite what everyone thought, loona blew up the expectations with more than 20k albums sold on hanteo and 40k+ on gaon. they entered to the top of billboard charts, had their first sold out concert and is currently between the top 10 best selling ggs physically this year (not even including gowon and ohye albums).

    Having that in mind imo the current tiers look something like this:

    Top tier:
    - Twice
    - Blackpink
    - Red Velvet
    - Mamamoo
    - G-friend
    - Apink** (hopefully they can mantain this place with another comeback).

    2nd tier:
    - g-idle
    - momoland
    - AOA
    - Lovelyz
    - Oh my girl
    - Loona
    - wjsn

    3rd tier:
    - EXID
    - Dreamcatcher
    - gugudan
    - Pristin
    - Weki Meki
    - DIA
    - CLC


    I'm not really aware of fromis_9 achievements so i didn't include them. Only thing i know is that they sell a lot of albums for a rookie. We have yet to see what happens with I*ZONE but they're definitely going to be fighting some spot at the top tier.

    what do you think? would you move anyone? am i right? am i delulu?

    unfortunatelly i don't think so, their albums sales are not too good and their last comeback kinda flopped.

    i totally forgot about them :(. the list doesn't include their sales and aoa's.

    i think they could enter to the 2nd tier depending on the popularity of their next comebacks ;)

    they charted pretty low too and DDD did kinda average.

    i'm still confident they can have another successful comeback this year with solji though.

    tbh, never expected lovelyz to be on the second tier though they are doing pretty good. It just doesn't seem to be people liking their songs or what. Somehow I'm proud

    well, it depends. both omg and lovelyz don't really have much popularity on the charts but their fandom is strong enough for them to mantain their place in the industry.

    For second tier I think it's enough

    It would be "flop" only for top tier

    I definitely liked it, it wasn't in my top 10 for the year though, but I keep feeling like people are going to get tired of LE constantly shoving 90s era hip hop and r&b production values down their throats, and maybe how this release performed will be a wakeup call for her.
