GG on August 12, 2020:

Don't judge. Little knowledge is dangerous. How would you know if blackpink is the most talented. They have very less songs and don't even write their own lyrics. They're just idols not artists. There are so many other groups who are more talented. They are just the most popular. Yes, they are talented but they are not popular because of their talent, it's because of their company. But your faves will always be the best for you, so that's okay

Hips on August 12, 2020:

Mamamoo members are all rounders. But of course not a master of none, they are vocal queens.

A.R.M.Y on August 10, 2020:

Seeing moomoo's spread love only, also at the same time, makes me proud

mamamoo is coming back for you moomoo on August 10, 2020:

Members of Mamamoo are stable because they debut not at a young age. They are mature. I love their personalities. They are MY Kpop Queens.

Moomoo on August 10, 2020:

Mamamoo is beyond compared

I love you Mamamoo

You are the best

You deserve to be recognised more and gain popularity

goodboy on August 10, 2020:

oh i watched that youtube video What koreans think of Mamamoo? and i agreed with most of them. They said that mmm can be themselves which most gg's can't and they have great personality. They are outstanding. I don't hate other gg's, i only spead love for my girls.

Spinebreaker on August 10, 2020:

Mamamoo is not that popular but they are SO TALENTED i'm not lying

All four of them can sing, rap, dance, write their OWN LYRICS and their live performances are amazing. They are not just idols but they are ARTISTS. They have the western style. They can sing any song concept. They don't have the same style of music or the same formula again and again in their songs, i never get bored listening to them. It took such a long time for me to recognize them but you won't regret liking them. They deserve more for their talents.

ELLY on August 08, 2020:

G IDLE is meant to be among since they are nominated for best kpop and also very popular. i think blackpink is also nice but twice is better. pls consider the awards twice has earned. i admit that blackpink breaks records but twice has more awards to prove it. And also blackpink produce like 1-2 songs a year so how the fuck won't they get an award

K.A.Jamil on August 08, 2020:

IZ*ONE have achieved lots of kove in a really short time, and their songs are some of the greatest of all time. Blackpink, Twice are good too. But as a young girl group, IZ*ONE is marvellous! They need more support before their contract ends.... I hope they can stay much longer.....

Andrei on August 07, 2020:

Anyone commenting on this article that "blackpink is blah blah blah and twice is more good than blackpink" you know what just shut the fuck up because lets just admit it that blackpink is more popular and they are queens dont ever compare my queens to your twice shit coz even when you walk down the streets here on uk they will all say that they dont like your TWIICEEE because their so called "cute voice on their songs" it makes them sick like if its me i will vomit and you like that kind of songs damn disgusting
