I'm happy that iKON's there.

Basically, this is a list of relevant groups on tumblr. Not everyone goes there but it's a place where you can find people from your fandom so it's a nice place to try, but not so for nugu groups (I tried.)

EXO has a crazy fandom (not exactly a bad thing), they're hella crazy and funny so I expected a lot when I decided to watch EXO's variety shows and was disappointed.

Also, it makes me sad that Big Bang's there like, idk why it hurts.

"2NE1 in 13th place ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ" same gurl, i get emotional whenever 2NE1 shows up on any chart nowadays

"God-like editing skills"


Bangtan's popularity is no joke.

hyunjungsh said...

bts, vixx, b.a.p and got7 popularity are no joke on tumblr (aside of exo
ofc). probably because tumblr user are mostly younger fans who likes
newer generation of idol groups. ikon's starting to get there too. winner fans on tumblr are mostly older VIPs like me lol.

BANGTAN!!!!!! No wonder, I reblogged their stuff like crazy.

i'maYGstans_88 said...

Surprised because IKON who hasn't debuted yet in16th place and Winner in 18th place. Well really surprise but FIGHTING WINNER AND IKON ! <3

Celine said...

or it could be that IKON fans are more active than Winner fans on tumblr ? Or that IKON made more Buzz on tumblr in the last few months because of SMTM3 and Mix and Match

lol why do you guys always try to find an excuse whenever IKON is ranked higher than winner in irrelevant poll/rankings ?

It's not that deep imho

VIP_RockWithMe said...

oh 2ne1, sometimes i cant even talk about them anymore coz i feel like im gonna choke up and cry

thank you Dara for posting things BlackJacks can spazz about. I hope BlackJacks would stop spamming the other girls about Bom, there is a reason she does not appear in any of their accounts, her appearing would just garner more hate.

I was really surprised (and proud) when I saw iKON on the list, especially since they only got their official name in september, and I doubt Tumblr knows that Team B is also known and iKON.

uhhhhhh said...

the last line i wrote was: "or ikon could be more popular, no idea"

yeezus, people in both ikon fandom--and inner circle too actually--are so fucking defensive, i'm not in either.

but also, clearly you've never taken statistics, rankings like these can be easily fucked up especially when it comes to gauging things based on human input, like tags. it's not about whether it's deep, it's about basic stat-gathering practices when you set up lists like these.

tumblr relies on user input to track what users are interested in. if you don't tag it or caption it, they have no fucking way of knowing what it is. so this is a problem when a band's name has a real, common meaning. if tumblr had used "winner" as a metric it would have falsely inflated winner's reblogs a ton because it would collect every fucking time a tumblr user posted a "winner". even "winner" with "kpop" doesn't work because that's also every fucking win a kpop group makes on any awards show. so i'm speculating they used "yg winner" even though that undercuts their rank because it's the tag tumblr provided and it's closer to the real number of reblogs of winner than any other tag else.

ps: if ikon had been named "icon" instead of ikon, i would be saying the exact same thing.

not really newer generation but a specific type which is young "hip hop" boy groups i mean its very easy to find fans (esp girls) who like bts, vix, bap, got7 and ikon all at the same time so its no surprise.
