Other netizens joined the online community and commented:
Is it because they are female idols? All of their digital scores are so high Congratulations, IVE!
Really, IVE are all the rage.
Yoohoo~ The song by BLACKPINK is also good.
The first time I heard IVE‘s song, it was good, but the members are still so young, but they’re a lot better than I thought they’d be. Congratulations on being number one!
I like it when groups of girls get together like that.
Congratulations, IVE, you’ve been doing so well lately.
It’s a great song. Even though NewJeans‘ promotions are over, they are still nominated, so they are also the big trend right now. I love both NewJeans and IVE.
Now, IVE are really big stars. In all honesty, the fact that they are almost as popular as BLACKPINK on digital charts shows that a new generation is coming up. The big trends of the 4th generation are already NewJeans.
I could have made a case for anyone on the list to win. This is really great. IVE congrats!
