These three dazzling male idols top the month of August’s individual boy group members’ brand reputation rankings!
On August 18, the Korean Business Research Institute has released the list for their monthly brand reputation rankings amongst individual boy group members! The ranking is based on the big data analysis done by the Institute from July 16 to August 17, 2018.
The analysis focused on and collected data from areas of consumer participation, media coverage, communication, and community awareness on each idol. Sadly, despite collecting 180,047,530 pieces of data, this month’s count is lower by 7.76% than last month.
Topping the list for the thirteenth consecutive month is Kang Daniel from Wanna One. He experienced a 3.62% increase from last month after receiving a total score of 9,637,088 this August.

BTOB’s Seo Eunkwang, whose sudden military enlistment made the headlines, takes the number four spot. He is followed by another Wanna One member, Ong Seongwoo, who stands at number five.
BTS’ Jimin – who is currently gearing up for a comeback with the rest of the Bangtan boys – ranks at number six. Wanna One’s Park Ji Hoon and Hwang Min Hyun take the seventh and eight spots respectively, already showing signs of their group’s frequency on the list.
