A netizen ranked various male idol groups who have been widely recognized for their talents, posting this on the popular online community board Pann.
Published on September 19th, the netizen titled the post “Ranking of idols who have been recognized for their skills” and wrote, “This isn’t my personal opinion but a ranking from a credible source,” naming the following male idols:
#6 | BTOB
#5 | INFINITE
#4 | BEAST
#3 | SHINee
#2 | BIGBANG
#1 | TVXQ
The original poster then adds, ” I don’t know why people are criticizing INFINITE so hard….I listened to their MR removed and they sound good..I’m not a fan either…”
Other netizens reacted to the original posters ranking and said:
[+243 / -324] Based only off singing I would say TVXQ>SHINee>BtoB>= BEAST>Big Bang>INFINITE. I would say Big Bang is more unique and musically talented than purely skilled in singing.
[+208 / -185] BtoB should be higher than INFINITE, they still have a member that’s questioned a lot.
[+176 / -32] People are going to criticize INFINITE agains saying they belong there. I was going to ask for them not to be mentioned at all ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
[+58 / -85] Since when is INFINITE ‘skill oriented’ group??????? First time i’ve ever heard this
