The Best of the Worst: Feb. 19, 2015

It's that time again: 



Yes, Sports Chosun released its latest girl group ranking. There's some big changes from last year, like the meteoric rise of AOA and Hani EXID. But fear not, friends, some things remain the same: T-ara is still getting the shaft as they stay mired in shit tier, aka the "Popular Maginot Line."


Soyeon demonstrates how high she thinks T-ara should rank.

And it loves her right back. DAMN, gurl.

  1. As a history major, i appreciated the maginot line as a tier name.

    1. So then, in a historical context, what is Chosun Sports trying to say about T-ara? Will history be kind to them?

    2. Historically the Germans just went around the Maginot line, through the weak Belgian/Dutch/Luxembourgian forces.

      So the groups in that tier look tough on the outside but are easily eclipsed by better bands, plus they'd otherwise be higher but are let down by their company's incompetence. Actually I have no fucking idea why they named it that.

    4. "So the groups in that tier look tough on the outside but are easily eclipsed by better bands, plus they'd otherwise be higher but are let down by their company's incompetence." Your ideas are intriguing to me, and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

  2. When will people stop trying to insist SNSD, 2NE1 and SISTAR are still at the top of their game? The vastly inferior Apink and Girl's Day have taken the top two spots whilst the vastly superior AOA are chugging behind in third place.

    1. SNSD could release a 3-minute recording of them coughing & sneezing and it would still outsell anyone else

      only thing that surprised me was SISTAR being there, I'd have swapped them with A Pink

    2. Snsd cojld release them shitting into a toilet while having massive diarrhea and have SONEs got batshit insane over praising it lol.

    3. 1. Both groups still can't surpass SNSD's album sales, especially with GSD being so shit with physical albums and they are not relevant enough outside of worst Korea. SNSD despite has been consistent with shit releases over the year still can sell tons of albums and sell out tokyo dome. inb4 physical albums mean nothing

      2. Lack of individual popularity. Nobody gives a shit about Namjoo, Hayoung and Chorong outside the fandom. People are still calling it Eunji's group. Naeun is still popular for having the most fuckable face and body in kpop and for having a virtual marriage with another girl from a popular boy group. Bomi tried hard to be Hyeri in Real men but netizens just don't buy her fake, weak aegyo. As for GSD, Minah has fallen because she simply sucks so much (sperm) and GSD is now known as Hyeri's group. It maybe also because Sojin looked like a $10/hr thai hooker pre-ps.

      3. AOA lol

      4. 2ne1 has massive YG "fuckfaces" stans especially with their international "fuckfaces" YG stans. And it's also because Bom and GD provide them with enough drugs to keep them coming.

      5. Sistar stops being relevant after Soyu became an iljin and sold out to that "fuck this song is so fucking boring why is it even relevent" some.

    4. I am aware that Apink only has three usful members and that GsD does terribly phisically but this just means that we now have nugus spearheading the hallyu wave. SNSD's popularity will be difficult to gauge until they have another Korean comeback but considering the main selling point for delusional sones was the soshi bond they could well be on their way out. Anyway, all these girl group rankings are completly irrelevant because SNSD, Kara and T-ara are the only ones making any decent money.

      Delete
    5. Chorong >>>>> the rest of APink.

      Delete
    6. Soshi's "forever9" bond never existed. The only thing there is are those fucktards Taeny shippers. If they can manage to not come out with more abominations like Mr. Mr and IGAB, i think they can maintain their position at least for 1-2 years more. Plus they are really pushing Seohyun's group of trio now so that's gotta count for something.

      I for one, am expecting the new queen of Kpop to be crowned this year, that is Red Velvet. The much superior Red Velvet will replace SNSD and all the heartbroken and fallen SNSD (and fx) stans will move on to a greener pasture. I heard jinnabit has already moved on to Red velvet too so that will help with securing more fansites for Red velvet because she has such good connections with people you know.

    7. Be Natural is worse than anything SNSD has ever released, A-side or otherwise. It's foolish to think SNSD will disband just because they've lost popularity. If group's disbanded just because they weren't at the top of their game anymore T-ara and 2NE1 would have disbanded two years ago. What I'm hoping for is that SM will do the exact same thing they did with TVXQ! and release actual good music for SNSD. And I wouldn't worry about jinnabit. She'll leave the fandom as soon as Red Velvet get into their inevitable dating scandal.

    8. > It's foolish to think SNSD will disband just because they've lost popularity

  3. "Popular Maginot line" ahahaha

    Something is wrong with that last picture, no? It looks bizarre as fuck.

    1. I love that photo, but it does look as though one half of her body is facing the wrong direction.

  4. I want some of the stuff they're smoking

  5. Koreans can rank T-ara as low as they want, but they continue to make bank.

  6. I knew that SNSD and 2NE1 would be at the top, but SISTAR? I wasn't aware that they were just as popular.

  7. Exid and 9Muses above Tara?? Lawlz, let them all step outside worst korea and lets see which one of them gets noticed... One viral video cannot rise the ranks of a group.

    1. As expected from Sports Choksun they need more determination...

    2. They are determinedly fapping to Hani.

    3. The thing is, only Hani would be noticed in Korea from Exid. And only Kyungri would be noticed from Nine Muses. But as much as they hate to admit it, if any one of T-ara was walking down the street, they would be equally noticed, people would flock from Hani to any member of T-ara, because it's fucking T-ara. Despite how hated they are, or as netizens like to lead on that they are, you flock to famous people regardless of how you personally feel about them. It's because they're celebrities, and T-ara are bigger celebrities than both Exid and Nine Muses, in or out of Korea.

  8. Why is everyone still so salty? I don't agree with is f(x) getting demoted but this ranking seems accurate enough. Sure there was the whole Sulli thing but next time they release an album it'll still be popular.

    A Pink will be second if they continue like this, I think AOA and GsD are a bit overrated here. A Pink has the healthiest fanbase with a seemingly good gender ratio (like SNSD), and IF SNSD winds down even further you know which group Sones are jumping to. Not fuckin' Sistar I can tell you that. A Pink got the variety chops, they got the good catchy songs, they're all HAWT and they could beat all the other groups in a fight, if it came down to it.

    1. Not Crayon Pop. And I'm pretty sure Adrian can take them down.

    2. Sones=SM stans

      They will be moving to the new queen of Kpop, Red Velvet. Don't get your hopes up.

      Delete
    3. Blue Velvet is a good song and great movie.

      Delete
    4. Sones are not SM stans, SM have THE most divisive fanbases. I mean you realize that historically ELFs and Sones have hated each other right. RV are also different. A Pink is the closest group to SNSD and there's already a lot of overlap with their fanbases on the internet.

  9. I don't know man... this list is just ridiculous.

  10. Ok guys what happened to sulli_fag?? -_-'

  11. I don't want to complain about the rankings, but I honestly don't understand how T-ara can be one rank above groups who debuted late 2014. It's obviously a T-ara anti who did this ranking lol

    1. They used "industry Experts" that were hilariously from all of the companies that the top listed groups are in. As in Cube, JYP, SM participated, Starship Empire participated, random fucking companies. MBK did not participate.
