We have two surprises in store for you, ARMY! The August brand reputation rankings for individual boy group members were released by the Korean Business Research Institute, and it’s no surprise that BTS’ Jimin topped the list for the 32nd month in a row, with a brand reputation index of 6,055,559. Today is also the first anniversary of BTS’ Dynamite!
The rankings were produced using big data collected from July 21 to August 21 and a review of consumer participation, media coverage, communication, and community awareness indices of 632 boy group members.
Jimin once again demonstrated his great star power! ‘Fandom,’ ‘ARMY,’ and ‘song’ were among the top-ranking phrases in his keyword analysis, while ‘mysterious’, ‘surpass,’ and ‘contribute’ were among the top-ranking related terms. Jimin’s positivity-negativity study yielded an 83.71 percent result.
Cha Eun Woo of ASTRO was ranked second in this month’s rankings, with a brand reputation index of 4,403,703, a slight gain of 1.12 percent over July.
Finally, BTS took the top five slots on the list, with Jin coming in third with a brand reputation rating of 4,273,770. V, Jungkook, Suga, and RM came in fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh positions for August, respectively.
