‘Girls’ Generation Country’ takes over the popularity map for 2013



The country of Girls’ Generation took over the popularity map for 2013.

A map previewing the popularity of major girl groups in 2013 was recently uploaded on an online community board which has sparked some debate. The land of each girl group country was based on their achievement for 2012 and projections in 2013.

Girl’s Generation had the largest country and took over most of the map. Not only so, but they even had a section for subgroup Taetiseo. Labelmates f(x) also took up a large portion of the map. Despite being a solo act, IU also enjoyed a large country.
The countries closest in size to the top included KARA, SISTAR, and 2NE1.

After School, 4minute, Brown Eyed Girls, Girl’s Day, A Pink, Crayon Pop, Dal Shabet, and Rainbow showed up on the map as well. miss A also had a significant portion, but Suzy had a large part by herself. The map also showed Wonder Girls and T-ara with significantly less area than before.


Do you think this is accurate?

Lmao @ Suzy's country
then Hyuna should also get her own country which would be larger than 4minute's country.
Imo Secret should be bigger and f(x) and Crayon Pop should be smaller.
I still remember the good ol' times when Wonder Girls had the largest country/ le sigh

digs up the old popularity maps

I don't know but f(x)'s should be larger. I am do aware that f(x) is not that popular internationally ((America, Europe)) but they are indeed more well-known in Korea than most people think
fancifury 26th-Dec-2012 11:08 pm (UTC)
girl's day should not exist
b1gay4 26th-Dec-2012 11:36 pm (UTC)
funny thats the same thing i think about t-ara but lo and behold they still appear (-:
miwa201 26th-Dec-2012 11:09 pm (UTC)
lol Crayon Pop. Who are they again?
frootums 27th-Dec-2012 12:43 am (UTC)
haha mte. They're cute and all but why are they even mentioned on here? Pft.
nobodyelse_care 26th-Dec-2012 11:09 pm (UTC)
Suzy got her own country lol

U go girl!
ryousan26 26th-Dec-2012 11:09 pm (UTC)
This map is quite accurate but I don't think T-ara should only have that small part of territory.

lol Despite them being involved in a controversy, all their songs were big this year.
ryousan26 26th-Dec-2012 11:15 pm (UTC)
Can people give f(x) a break? Unless you're a Korean, you can't say how popular are they there. Stop denying the facts lol

f(x) is a top girl group in Korea bye
itskimbitches 26th-Dec-2012 11:20 pm (UTC)
gurl no one is stressing f(x) rn, wait till this post hits 20 comments to defend at least.
tiggie0307 26th-Dec-2012 11:16 pm (UTC)
Suzy reminds me of West VA

But why is IU here when this is for girl groups?

taiyouhana 27th-Dec-2012 02:18 am (UTC)
omg i just snorted Suzy is West VA
pepper 26th-Dec-2012 11:16 pm (UTC)
Hoping for a male version tbh.
hisjulliet 26th-Dec-2012 11:17 pm (UTC)
Suzy's country lol

why is F(x)'s land bigger than 2ne1's? it's supposed to be the other way around



hisjulliet 26th-Dec-2012 11:20 pm (UTC)
nm opp

but F(x) is still too big
itskimbitches 26th-Dec-2012 11:24 pm (UTC)
wait there's crayon pop but no lee hi...whatever but where's hyuna? if suzy get's her own i would expect a yoona.
sandra_hall 28th-Dec-2012 12:02 am (UTC)
yoona is on a way more even footing with the rest of soshi incomparison with the crazy popularity of suzy and the rest of miss A. agreed on hyuna tho
gyuri 26th-Dec-2012 11:26 pm (UTC)
kara & f(x)'s should be bigger
secret & 4minute's should be smaller
minakuu 27th-Dec-2012 02:00 am (UTC)
lol u wish
lightframes 26th-Dec-2012 11:28 pm (UTC)
If subgroups are separate, shouldn't After School and Orange Caramel be separate?
erbalurbal 26th-Dec-2012 11:29 pm (UTC)
iu is a girl group now?
lysblack 26th-Dec-2012 11:30 pm (UTC)
lmao this map seems so wrong in some ways, sistar is way too big, yes they grew alot this year and had a boom in their careers, but not to that amount.

also lol, crayon pop is too damn big when they are nugus of the nugus. and suzy's country would be bigger, as would miss a's.

yeolcarp 27th-Dec-2012 05:42 am (UTC)
actually I think 2012 really made sistar more popular, so i think the size of their "country" is fair, more or less. on melon's end of the year chart they placed 2nd and 3rd in the video streaming category, 2nd in downloads, and 2nd and 4th in overall with alone and loving u. but in total agreement about crayon pop.
drfaith101 26th-Dec-2012 11:34 pm (UTC)
Get it f(x)
cagallisakura 26th-Dec-2012 11:38 pm (UTC)
Not surprised TTS got their own country lol I freaking loved their promotions, screw Twinkle, Baby Steps was amazing <3


and LOL two SNSD posts in a row and I didn't even have anything to do with them xD
sandritablue 27th-Dec-2012 12:12 am (UTC)
Baby Steps was perfect.
b1gay4 26th-Dec-2012 11:38 pm (UTC)
idgi @ crayon pop being so big, f(x) being so big, compared to AS and 2ne1. also why is TTS even there???????
soft_daisy 26th-Dec-2012 11:44 pm (UTC)
AS weren't so relevant this year idk. :( I don't know how well OC fared this year. SNSD members continue to be relevant in Korea, especially if we're talking about the most popular ones in the group so TTS is there. I feel like f(x) is that big because most of the others are that small and several of the members have been pretty active. 2ne1...they have really good physical sales, but YG barely promotes them now (still waiting for their next full album tbh), and I feel like they're not the type of group liked by the general public but only a certain group of people.
iznanassi 26th-Dec-2012 11:38 pm (UTC)
SISTAR
seung_is_my_ho 26th-Dec-2012 11:49 pm (UTC)
of course it's innacurate. BEG should have at least have an area the size of 2NE1's and Miss A's combined.
kyuuhyun 26th-Dec-2012 11:53 pm (UTC)
It looks like some random netizen made this lol. If I make a map like this next year and upload it on an online community board will it also spark debate?
tsuyoi_hikari 27th-Dec-2012 02:13 am (UTC)
You shoud do that tbh. They just did this map based on their opinion instead of facts.
taecish 26th-Dec-2012 11:54 pm (UTC)
empires never last snsd...
sandra_hall 27th-Dec-2012 07:06 pm (UTC)
who do you think is coming for their crown? think they're gonna get csjh'd by f(x)?
bunica1990 27th-Dec-2012 12:00 am (UTC)
I want to see a map for the male groups.
tempestdance 27th-Dec-2012 12:12 am (UTC)
I feel like it would mostly be constant warzone between JYJ/DBSK, giant Super Junior land that resembles the shape of China, and Big Bang in a different continent or something.

And the rest... meh.
shineebambi 27th-Dec-2012 12:15 am (UTC)
seems pretty accurate except why the hell is crayon pop on the map?
prek_drugz 27th-Dec-2012 12:26 am (UTC)
I'm glad crayon pop got on there~
proud of Girl's Day and Rainbow too :')
I must agree and say Hyuna should get her own island
sergel02 27th-Dec-2012 12:58 am (UTC)
I'm gonna go live on Rainbow's island, sunbathing with Rilakkuma with a piña colada in hand.
helveticalight 27th-Dec-2012 12:30 am (UTC)
It's cool, ya'll can continue to underestimate f(x) as the girls make their way to the bank tbh
drfaith101 27th-Dec-2012 12:31 am (UTC)
yessss
