BTS' Jimin tops brand reputation rankings for 32nd consecutive month, fans call him 'unmatched'
Every month the Korea Corporate Reputation Research Institute reveals the current month's brand reputation rankings for individual boy group members. BTS members have been dominating the rankings for quite some time now with Jimin of BTS in the lead and so has Astro's lead vocal and visual, Cha Eunwoo. The rankings are determined through an analysis of the coverage of a wide range of aspects like consumer participation, media coverage, communication, and community awareness indices of all the boy groups from out of 632 groups.
For the month of August 2021, the data collected from July 21 to August 21 was used for this ranking research, and BTS' Jimin took first place amongst all the boy group members. This is the 32nd consecutive month for which Jimin has been on the number 1 spot with other members of BTS competing for the second place or Astro's Cha Eunwoo who has most often been his close second. This month too, Cha Eunwoo ranked 2nd while BTS' oldest member and main visual Jin ranked 3rd.
