In What World Are Shinhwa Considered Gods and Wonder Girls Considered Disasters?
With so many idols being as funny as professional comedians recently, a fun fan-made ranking for their variety performances has been going viral online.
On a recent online community, a netizen uploaded a post titled, ‘Variety Idol Ranking,’ appeared, separating idol groups into the different categories of ‘Good,’ ‘Average,’ ‘Bad,’ ‘Disasters,’ and ‘gods’ in terms of how well they’ve been doing on variety programs.
In the ‘Good’ category were Super Junior, g.o.d., Girls’ Generation (SNSD).
Super Junior especially was titled, ‘The Real Madrid of Idol Variety,’ as a good majority of members are known for the humor they showed on variety programs across every major channel. The members of g.o.d. were also well-known as variety experts when they were still performing as a group.
Placed in ‘Average’ were SS501, 2PM, 2AM, Big Bang, MBLAQ, T-ara.
2PM was highlighted as the ‘Second Shinhwa,’ and some criticism towards MBLAQ appeared, saying, “If it weren’t for Lee Joon, MBLAQ would be put in a lower rank.”
Unfortunately put in the lower ranks of ‘Bad’ were TVXQ (DBSK), SHINee, 4minute, Kara, Secret, f(X), B2ST, and miss A.
The remaining categories of ‘Disaster’ and ‘gods’ were taken individually by Wonder Girls and Shinhwa.
Wonder Girls was given the title, ‘The Ones who Opened the Gates of Hell to JYP Variety,’ emphasizing its lack of talent in the given area. It was also noted that the Wonder Girls members have previously admitted to not being able to adjust very well to variety shows.
The ‘Gods’ title was given to first generation idol Shinhwa, who recently returned with its own variety show Shinhwa Broadcast after a four year hiatus. The caption that described them was “The Walking Textbooks of Variety; If you want to survive in the Variety World, just act like them.”
Upon seeing the results of the ranks, netizens commented, “It’s funny but very subjective,” “Poor Wonder Girls,” “This is hilarious. Shinhwa is good at variety,” and “Did a Shinhwa fan create this?”
