Pann: Can't refute this, idols that are on a downfall & rising

1. [+261, -138] BTOB is too ambiguous because only one member is popular. A lot of non-fans don't even know that Sungjae is in BTOB.

2. [+250, -60] SHINee's fourth album sold 300k digitally and it was #40 on an annual chart of Melon. It was in top 10 of Genie. How are they a flop ㅋㅋ More like your bias is a flop.

3. [+193, -325] I don't agree with BTOB... I don't think they'll get popular

4. [+111, -11] Everybody shut up. The top 5 is Bigbang, EXO, SHINee, B2ST, and Infinite. Agree?

5. [+75, -4] Grab a random adult on a street and ask them, "excuse me, do you know Infinite and B2ST?" Again, you ask, "then do you know Bangtan Boys?" What do you think they'll say? Only teenagers and fans know Bangtan. Do you think adults in their 30's will know Bangtan? Do you think men will know Bangtan Boys? They've at least heard of Infinite and B2ST.

6. [+75, -2] Leave B1A4 alone ㅠㅠ

7. [+72, -4] Isn't it true that BangEXShiBeaIn is the top?
