[+ 165, – 3] Honestly if you are chewed out on Pann it means you’re doing well. Big Bang as expected, EXO, iKON, BtoB, SHINee, and BTS they’re all doing so well
[+ 138, – 10] Why do people keep saying iKON is good for a rookie when they are 3rd in streaming and 2nd in downloads. They just did well period not just for a rookie.
[+ 137, – 2] All the idols criticized on Pann are at the top ㅋㅋㅋ
