[ +152 / -109] I don’t really believe that iKON’s popularity is all that great. They literally give out free tickets to their concert all the time but… Their media play is much as BIG BANG
[ +131 / -13] BIG BANG is a group I have nothing to say about and EXO is also correct. BTS has been popular before and BTOB got popular after Sungjae was on ‘We Got Married,’ iKON is a group you can tell their popularity through their SNS
[ +128 / -85] iKON fans making this post because they know they don’t belong there lol
