Kpop Exes Volume 4: Annual Chinese Entertainment statistics are out! How did your Chinese fave do?

This is the fourth (very, very late) bi-monthly update post on how our favorite Chinese ex-Kpop idols are doing! Info and image heavy so get comfortable and click below!

Well, actually, before I continue with their individual activities, let me first post some general news involving most of them and some other Chinese idols who are still in Kpop! Tencent (the biggest media/internet company in China) published their annual data/statistics regarding all areas of Chinese entertainment. So this will be full of rankings and stats in film, music, dramas, celebrity, etc!

Mods, I tagged the others because Victoria and Lay are part of the rankings and I don't think there needs to be a separate post!

BTS' Jimin and SHINee's Taemin delivered a power-packed dance performance at the KBS Song Festival, but it is Jimin's on-stage tumble that has gone viral on social media. The K-pop idol has been grabbing headlines after he collapsed as he walked off stage following the performance.

After a spell-bounding dance collaboration that drove the audience crazy, Jimin and Taemin were making their way off the stage as the audience roared with cheer and applause. However, just as the two idols were exiting the stage, Jimin took off his earpiece and appeared to have lost his balance as he fell forwards on to the floor and the incident was captured on video by a fan.

Being the true professional that he is, Jimin shrugged off the fall like it never happened and later rejoined BTS as they paid homage to Seo Taiji and the Boys with a rendition of their hit song "Class Idea." Jimin's fall led fans to believe that it was a result of fatigue and many of them accused Big Hit Entertainment for overworking the boys.

This is not the first time BTS fans have accused the agency of over-exhausting members of the seven-member boy band. In January, the band was plagued by a series of injuries and concert cancellations, according to Koreaboo. This prompted fans to criticize the label for making the group work very hard without giving them a break and not making the group's health their number one priority.

WINNER’s Mino and iKON’s Bobby are under fire for a recently released behind-the-scenes video that shows them impersonating a stereotype of “black gangsters” with Mino saying the N-Word. The video in question was released by YG Entertainment for Mino and Bobby’s project group, THE MOBB and their Japanese debut. The skit shows Bobby pointing a gun sideways at Mino telling him to “Drop the gun on the ground”. In response, Mino says, “Man, N——”.
