March Boy Group Member Rankings

Posted March 17, 2018 by

The Korean Business Research Institute has published March’s results for brand reputation rankings among individual boy group members.

The Institute analyzed 164,132,165 sources of data on 395 boy group members from February 15 to March 16 in the categories of participation, media coverage, communication, and community awareness.

Wanna One’s Kang Daniel topped this month’s brand reputation rankings with a total score of 12,117,292. BIGBANG’s G-Dragon followed up in second place with 10,704,230, and Taeyang came in third place with 6,097,666. Four members of BIGBANG made it to the top five this month. (Note: G-Dragon, Taeyang, and Daesung were covered on the news a lot for the past weeks due to their enlistments and Seungri for his TV appearances.)

A source from the Institute revealed that Kang Daniel, who topped brand reputation rankings for eight months in a row, was highly associated with the keywords “Wanna One,” “King of Masked Singer,” and “MC” as he came in first place this month.
