    i care about them equally. if i only cared about the lyrics i'd be stanning written and slam poetry. rap is compact and easily accessible, and i like that it's more grounded in reality than some artsy fartsy poetry out there.

    It really is kind of an embarrassment of riches when it comes to my fave.. He is 10/10 in everything he does, but above all, he is a consummate professional and perfectionist, which has always been a 100+ in my book. Others can only aspire to be like him..It's no wonder he is the role model of so many...

    Vocals 10 (If a singer has a good vocal in my opinion, I will still listen to his song even if I don't like his personality so it's an important factor in my opinion)
    Rapping 5 (I don't care, I don't like rap but since kpop does like adding "rap" in their songs as long as it good enough to fit the song I'm good with it)
    Dancing 5 (I'm not necessarily looking at choreographies, it's fun sometimes but not a necessity for me)
    Songwriting 7 (it's good for a singer to be interested in composing and performing is own song is more meaningful but it's not always good songs)
    Choreographing 5 (since I don't really care about choreography in the first place I'm not looking for my bias to be able to make choreography, but that's still a skill ~)
    Instrument Skill 8 (I'm very interested by instruments, an I love bands, so yeah I'm kind of looking forward instrument skill but that's not an important factor either)
    Visuals 1 (As long as they does look "clean" I don't care about visual (but I've never seen idols with "dirty" appearance yet ~)
    Personality/Charm 10 (I'm either attracted to idols by songs and vocal skill or by their personnality. If I'm attracted by their personnality I don't really care about their songs, I'm not expecting anything about their music. So personality is an important factor)
    Acting 3 (I've never stanned any idols or even actors for their acting skill so I don't know ~ I don't really watch dramas or movies)
    Variety/Hosting 9 (It's kind of related to personality / charm. I love variety shows / reality shows if they can entertain me or have a good attitude / personality in shows then I will most likely support them)
    Modeling/CF 1 (I just don't care)

    Must Have
    Personality/Charm 10 + Variety/Hosting 10
    - YASSS ENTERTAIN ME!
    Added after being inspired by @heerayni : Work Ethics and Professionalism 10 :cool:
    Dancing 9
    - It really stands out if the idol looks like a dislocated mannequin dancing...
    Vocals 8 - Can't fully enjoy if I can't stand their voice (sorry Jun). But TBH, if I really cared about vocals, I'd stan opera singers or like Han Dong Geun :rolleyes:(which is possible, if they put him on more shows!).

    Good to Have
    Visuals
    8 to 5 - Good looks are alluring, but I ultimately end up liking the ones with good personalities who may or may not be the best visual.
    Songwriting 6 - This is one area where they can retain creative control, so I like to see them put some effort into it.
    Rapping 6 - If they're going to shoehorn in rap positions, then it better be decent. Though, because I'm an unenlightened pleb, I go by what I like to hear and not on tEcHnIcAl sKiLLs. xD

    Can Be Forgiven For Not Having
    Instrument Skill 3 - Only important if you're in CNBLUE or F.T. Island, etc. Seeing Mingyu rock out on electric guitar and Woozi on drums was fantastic though.
    Acting 2 - Bad acting skills just means I cringe and then move on. xD
    Modeling/CF 1 - While I'm sure their companies want this skill, I don't really need to know how many shots it took before they can become America's Next Top Model got the best photo to sell a piece of fried chicken or smthng.
    Choreographing 0 - This is really hard to do, I can't expect this!

    Rapping 5, and only if it's a group where rap is important.
    Dancing 7
    Songwriting 5
    Choreographing 5
    Instrument Skill 1 (unless they're a band, it's nice but not necessary)
    Visuals 1
    Personality/Charm 10
    Acting 0 (they're idols, who cares if they can act?)
    Variety/Hosting 5
    Modeling/CF 0
    (Other: Write In)
    My most important traits aren't on the list. Those are integrity, creativity, and brutal honesty. I like someone who isn't afraid to speak out when the need arises. I can't really connect with the idols who don't stand up for their beliefs and set themselves apart in some way. If they're just nice, pretty, and talented I can like them, but I can't find them special.

    Vocals 9 (although if you're a rapper, it doesn't matter at all)
    Rapping 7 (again, if you're a vocalist this doesn't matter at all)
    Dancing 5 (nice to have not a necessity at all though)
    Songwriting 8 (This is very good to have, and a lot of the ones I stan do, but not a necessity)
    Choreographing 3 (would be cool, none of my biases do that anymore as far as I know)
    Instrument Skill 0
    Visuals 3
    Personality/Charm 5
    Acting 0
    Variety/Hosting 3
    Modeling/CF 0

    Anything 5 or under isn't a necessity, which looking back is most things. I like such a wide range of idols that have talents in many different areas, which is why there isn't much that I really require in order to stan someone.

    Vocals : 3/10 (They're in groups for a reason, they can't all sing. So I respect the vocalists members, but I also love others)

    Rapping : 5/10 (I like idols who can rap, but I prefer them not to if they can't rather then force themselve and have something bad or ridiculous)

    Dancing : 9/10 (The dances are what I probably love the most in Kpop, it's what get me into it so yeah pretty important but I love every type of dance not only heavy hip-hop things)

    Songwriting : 2/10 (I respect idols who can write their own songs but that's it. Also when you know that not every compagnies give their idols the opportunity to write, it's hard to judge idols on this, some of them could be awesome songwriters but are repressed by their label to do it)

    Choreographing : 4/10 (I like and repsect idols who can create choreo but it's not the most essential things)

    Instrument Skill : 0/10 (Unless they're in a band like CN Blue or FT Island, not really)

    Visuals : 6/10 (I would be lying if I say it doesn't matter at all, visual is the first thing you see but I need the idol to be more than a visual otherwise I'll loose interest)

    Personality/Charm : 10/10 (It is the most important for me. If I don't like the idol personality I'll become cold towards their music and all)

    Acting : 0/10 (Coudln't care less. Stop pushing idols who can't act into drama, I know it pay better but it ruin the drama)

    Variety/Hosting : 4/10 (As it's linked to the idols personality, it's a bit important)

    Modeling/CF : 0/10 (Coudln't care less)
