If you were to create a girl group hierarchy chart, who would be your top pick?
According to a hierarchy chart that’s been quickly spreading online, Girls’ Generation and 2NE1 are the undisputed top two picks. This chart, dated February, 2012, covers 16 of the top girl groups and ranks them in order by five different categories, such as “Wall You Can’t Go Over (unbeatable, basically),” “Nationwide level,” “Socialite level,” “Mania level,” “the Maginot line.”
The top “Wall You Can’t Go Over” category is rounded out by Girls’ Generation at #1 and 2NE1 at #2. Closely following them in the “Nationwide level” are T-ara at third, the Wonder Girls and Kara at fourth, and f(x) at fifth. This shows the girl groups popular in Japan ranking higher than the Wonder Girls, who’s mostly spent their time in the U.S. lately.
The next category, “Socialite level,” is comprised of Secret and SISTAR at the same level, followed by 4minute. After School is ranked slightly above the “Mania level,” with A Pink, Girls’ Day, Rainbow, and Dal Shabet trailing them to complete the “The Maginot line.”
A recent paparazzi photo of Sistar‘s Bora and actor Ji Chang Wook startled netizens for a moment as they believed it to be proof of a real relationship.
SISTAR member Dasom and Boyfriend‘s Hyunsung will be enrolling in college next year.
A poster featuring the girl group of ‘Dream High 2‘, HershE, was released as it is made up of T-ara‘s Jiyeon, SISTAR‘s Hyorin, and rookie singer Ailee.
HershE is a mysterious 3-member girl group that transferred to Kirin Art School, in which the group and male idol, Eden will have a bloody battle with Kirin Art School students.
Jiyeon, Hyorin, and Ailee will showcase a dynamic and powerful dance group, as they will attract the male students’ attention with their stunning looks.
As Jiyeon is being named as one of the most successful idol actresses, she will play Liam, who aspires to be the ‘Queen of the Cannes Festival’. Hyorin, with her powerful vocals and role as the leader of SISTAR, will act as the leader, Nana, who has a fresh personality. Meanwhile, Ailee will play the beautiful and talented Ailee, who often displays a disrespectful attitude as a bluff.
