This morning (February 27), the Korea Institute of Corporate Reputation announced the brand reputation rankings for all singers who are active in the South Korean music industry. The list is determined through the collection and analysis of data from Korean music artists, including boy groups, girl groups, soloists, indie singers, trot singers and many other genres from January 27 to February 27, 2021. This month, the total brand reputation index is 123,421,789.
At the top, boy group BTS continued their reign although their brand reputation index (13,215,433) has decreased significantly (23.46%) compared to January.
Meanwhile, "digital queen" IU has risen to No. 2 on this month's list, after only ranking 6th last month, with a brand reputation index of 9,656,213. This marks an impressive increase (68.80%) compared to January. It makes sense as IU has a lot of activities in February, as she released the song 'Celebrity'.
