    What? It’s true. SM are racists; they treated the chinese members worse than the korean; that’s why 2 people left. Just the truth.

    So you like Rosa Parks? She fought against racism yet here you are spreading hate and Racism to Chinese members of other groups. Hypocrite. Enjoy being a retarded non diverse nationalist. Loser.

  • Food

    Do you hate Chinese that you would say such words?

  • twiny


  • Kpop’ s Jams

    No BTS after all they won artist of the year!

  • ThatBoy Dino

    – Sure I agree these dominant groups had great comebacks
    – Had great album sales
    – And they were received well by the public
    But this poll is clearly plagued with subjective favoritism instead of an objective compliance.

  • ThatBoy Dino

    Your the perfect example of an imperfect kpop fan

  • Lee Var Payawal Antolijao

    BTS FOR ME !!!!!!!!!!

  • Aysha thaziya

    You really like to put your nose on other people matter na….you people judge others from what you saw in the front……if you really think so lay/yixing would have left too then y didn’t he ah??? Id8 understand and think spit utter nonsense…if they lest its because they had their own intention behind it

  • okay, untalented? we respect your opinion but if they’re untalented why do you even bother to pay attention to them?

  • xiuchenny

  • IArmyOnce7
  • Aragorn Lee

    I hate how people can’t sit there for a second and think “Even though I like Bts, Gfriend got over double the amount of wins, whilst BTS is my favourite Gfriend should be picked” but no. Y’all gotta be like “omg BTS and EXO are the best groups my Junkookie omg” Ugh girl please BTS isn’t the only Kpop group y’know.

  • YoonTaeKyung

    I’m so fuckin done with thse ARMYS (ofc not all of them but it’s like 99.9% of them)
    They’re acting like BTS is the best in everything and they always put them on top of everything especially if it’s about votes, and I really hate voting sht because BTS will always be on the top and even if they release sht, armys will still support it and stream the mv to make them look better? idk why does the views really matters when we all know that ARMYs always stream BTS videos…

  • Aragorn Lee

    IKR! BTS is an amazing group but for the likes of MAMA n all that. They were picked for everything can could be picked for. It’s because you have all those people that are into only one group and only vote for them. SMH.

  • kandyce4ever

    That is there opinion. They may not have liked Gfriend’ssong in 2016 so don’t get mad based on other people’s opinion’s because that isn’t fair
