Instiz: This has disappeared in modern idol culture

- The era of the five greatest fandoms...

- These days, the media try to make them rivals but the fans want them to be friends

- There's still competitions though

- It's because there are too many idols now. The fandoms are very divided.

- In the past, every fan neglected all idols except their bias ㅋㅋ Nowadays, fans love all groups

- Because there was a limited number of idols debuting in each year and it was easy to make them rivals. But there are too many groups debuting now.

- B2ST vs MBLAQ are the last rivals I can remember

- That legendary DongSu501 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Memories... They're disappearing to the military one by one...

- SNSD vs Wonder Girls was strong

- SHINee and 2PM got a lot of comparisons because their concepts were completely opposite. "SHINee is milk and 2PM is soju."

- It was BAP vs EXO in 2012...... ㅠㅠ
