After releasing their ’2013 Girl Group Ranking’ last year, Sports Chosun is back with their ’2014 Girl Group Ranking’. The media outlet talked to various representatives in the singing world to get their assessment of girl groups so far in 2014 to reveal what they believe is the current hierarchy of female idol groups.
Unsurprisingly, the first tier, labeled ‘Impossible to Surpass, 4th Level Wall’ (aka the ‘insurmountable wall’) has Girls’ Generation and 2NE1comfortably within the layer. This is undoubtedly the highest level of achievement for any girl group, and impressively enough, Sports Chosun and various reps decided that SISTAR has managed to enter this level through their widely successful hit “Give It To Me“. All their songs have been majorly popular, but this one especially was able to break them through to move one step up from the previous level, ‘Nationwide,’ which probably suggests nationwide popularity.
Girls’ Generation managed to keep their position with ease for 3 years straight, but on the case of 2NE1, Sports Chosun says the various music insiders were conflicted on whether to keep them there. Although 2NE1 released several songs last year and led active promotions overseas as well, insiders seem to feel slightly conflicted because of high expectations for them. The reps say because the girls are 2NE1, they should have done more to surpass Girls’ Generation’s popularity.
