      I think this is fair enough, as both army and exo-l, I actually prefer BTS's songs due the energy they're giving on their songs and dances and the deep meanings on their songs, not to mention that all the member wrote the songs based on their own feelings. So I guess It's fair for BTS to earn the 1st place.

      To be true, I'm totally not a fan or a follower of any Korean celebrities. But when I compared all the Korean boy groups, the "EXO" is more interesting than the other groups. But, I am also amazed of all of the K-groups. All of the groups are very AMAZING!!
