  1. except top 3 this poll is the definition of mass. idk what it is about sk but they never seem to release a correct poll.

    top 3 are most fair and correct except that nothing is right? why is Lee soo man so high up the list is question number 1? he hasen’t done really anything this year exo is on the decline, the same with snsd for years now and god knows where super junior is. JYP is the one deserving of atleast 4th or 5th place on this list based on twice’s revolution which is the biggest in 2016 by far and i would also have added YG instead of Lee soo man because YG had a good year with debutting IKON which is also successful project and winner to some extent.

    GD being on this list seems incorrect also since he hasen’t done much this year but in 2015. you could argue for big bang making the bottom of the list but not so high up.

    besides that song hye kyo being so low is incorrect also she is worth atleast top 6. Yoo ah in was last year not this year since he hasen’t released noteworthy stuff while twice and hwang jung min deserve to be in top 10

  2. Happy for SJK! Deserving of all the fame he’s getting now. I’m so late to get on his bandwagon but I’ve already enjoyed seeing him in Sungkyunkwan Scandal years before. Hoping for continued success.

  3. papa YG is sooo close to bigbang. remember the past article about Bigbang vs SM ent (exo, snsd, shinee and boa released albums at that year).So proud of Bigbang.

    well deserved top 10. KInda hope bigbang releases an album this year so they can get higher. 😀

  4. How did they evaluate the list? Not a random poll or survey again!!!???? The Kpop power list looks so random. LOL…none from SM artists, but the label founder? And rookie groups like IOI and Twice? But no EXO? LMAO…So all the EXO slaying top of the music charts in and outside Korea, including #1 Billboard world album were jokes!!!!!????? Not a fan of any SM groups though. But this list looks so random and fishy although I’m glad SJK is on top of the list. Anyway, don’t take it seriously.
