Accordingly, this is just a chart of Korean idols. The idols on the list are all Korean
Among the music markets, China may not be a market that Knets love, but it is a place that can help K-pop idols make a lot of money and also help companies earn huge profits. Many Kpop idols focus on promoting in this country, but many idols only need to rely on their natural charm to catch the eye of Cnets.
Recently, a chart of the most famous Kpop idols in China is spreading on social networks. However, this chart causes great controversy.
Firstly, Jennie is the only BLACKPINK member in the top 15 instead of Lisa. Many fans claim that Lisa is the most popular female idol when it comes to the Chinese market, so the fact that the maknae of BLACKPINK is not on the list makes this chart unreliable.
Next, more people are more skeptical when Seungri (BIG BANG) is still being supported so much and even ranked 13th. On the other hand, netizens think that although Jaemin (NCT) is very popular in China, the male idol is also not able to surpass many other competitors to rank second. So they think this chart is ‘fake’.
On the other hand, some people said this chart is completely reasonable. Accordingly, this is just a chart of Korean idols. The idols on the list are all Korean. They said that if this chart really ranked all K-pop idols, the person who ranks 1st would be Jackson (GOT7) – a Hong Kong nationality idol, Lay (EXO), WJSN’s China-line, or Wang Yibo (a member of UNIQ).
In addition, fans of Kpop idols who enter the chart also deny the opinion that their idols do not deserve the rankings. Many people believe that, although their idols may not promote in China, the fan-stations of these above idols are extremely large, especially in the case of V (BTS). So, considering only Korean idols, netizens still think this is a reliable chart
