Hail to (G)I-DLE for being the Queens of K-Pop in October!

Based on the recently released data from the Korean Research Business Institute, femme fatale group (G)I-DLE has taken the crown as the leading K-Pop girl group for the month of October.

The brand reputation rankings were determined through the various indices including consumer participation, media, communication, and community. In particular, the institute extracted a huge amount of date from September 11 to October 12.

The Power of (G)I-DLE

Climbing up the rankings from 20th seat to the No. 1 spot, femme fatale K-Pop group (G)I-DLE has taken the top seed after marking a striking 598.33 percent increase in their score since September. Soyeon, Soojin, Miyeon, Shuhua, Minnie, and Yuqi were able to grab the first place thanks to their total brand reputation index of 15,678,703.

Some of the high-ranking phrases in the power K-Pop girl group’s keyword analysis include flattering words such as “hot”, “cute”, and “like”.

Currently gaining a lot of attention from viewers, the group is busy participating in Mnet’s survival show Queendom alongside AOA, MAMAMOO, Oh My Girl, Lovelyz, and Park Bom. With the show’s growing popularity, “Queendom”, “Minnie”, and “Soojin” were likewise present in the girls’ highest-ranking related terms.

Aside from impressing everyone with their talents through Queendom, the idol group will also be treating fans with powerful stages at the 2019 Asia Artist Awards in Vietnam. They will be headlining the much-anticipated ceremony on November 26 alongside other K-Pop acts including Super Junior, TWICE, Red Velvet, GOT7, ITZY, TXT, and more.
