A recent post on an online community board ranking idol stars on their variety show appeal is drawing attention from fans.
“Idol Variety Show Rank“, the post read, and the top three spots in the upper rank were seized by Super Junior, g.o.d, and Girls’ Generation.
The netizen wrote, “Super Junior is the real deal when it comes to variety show entertainment, and g.o.d were the best of their time.” In regards to Girls’ Generation, the netizen wrote, “I was debating whether to put them amongst the top or the middle, but there are no female idols that perform as well on variety shows as Girls’ Generation. Even Seohyun, who is more of the EBS (educational channel) type, has middle-level entertainment skills.”
The mid-rank variety show idols included 2PM, 2AM, MBLAQ, T-ara, and Big Bang, while groups like SECRET, f(x), SHINee, 4minute, KARA, B2ST, miss A, and TVXQ ranked amongst the bottom.
The netizen went on to label legendary idol group Shinhwa as the ‘gods’ of entertainment television, while Wonder Girls were referred to as a ‘disaster’ when it came to variety shows. “Shinhwa is like the official textbook of variety entertainment. If idols want to be on variety shows, they need to be on par with them,” the netizen wrote, while also saying, “[Wonder Girls] have opened the hell gates of JYP when it comes to variety entertainment.”
Fellow netizens who saw the post responded with mixed reactions, stating, “Let’s just enjoy entertainment shows for what they are- entertainment“, “Shinhwa truly is the best“, “Yes, I acknowledge Shinhwa as the best“, “Don’t you think Super Junior are the gods of variety entertainment?”, and more.
The article on Nate has already received numerous comments by other netizens and fans who disagree or agree with the ranking of the individual.
