Pann: Objective top 5 boy groups for digital sales

1. [+101, -10] Stop downgrading YG's digital sales. Mino worked hard last year and Winner had a fantastic comeback after their hiatus which was the longest rookie group hiatus.

2. [+96, -6] I like how Bigbang, Winner, and Block B have their own clear paths. Groups like this tend to last long.

3. [+87, -3] The results show the answer but people still downplay YG boy groups ㅋㅋㅋㅋ If you want to bash them, bring the facts.

4. [+60, -54] Why is this important? The only songs that the public knows from them are Bang Bang Bang and Fear. Fear was all about the show so its success isn't from its own. I think Zico is the only digital monster after Bigbang.

5. [+57, -4] Taeyang, Zico, and Song Mino are amazing. They're in groups but they managed to be in the rankings as solos.

6. [+56, -3] Bigbang, Block B, iKON, and Winner compose and write their own songs. Interesting.

7. [+49, -1] We want a Winner comeback ㅠㅠ

8. [+49, -3] YG swept the rankings ㅋㅋㅋ Block B is from a small company, how amazing of them.
