With a total of 245,447 fans in their fan cafe, they are able to stand their ground against boy groups. Their fandom power is evident through the first place wins on music programs, not only for their latest “Mr.Mr.” album, but their previous albums as well.

The difference between number one and two is staggering, with almost triple the amount of fans in Girls’ Generation compared to A Pink (86,596). And compared to Crayon Pop in 17th place, their fan size is 20 times larger.

Also worth mentioning is Crayon Pop at number 17. Considering their status as a rookie group compared to their seniors, Crayon Pop has climbed up a long way. After making a hit with “Bar Bar Bar,” the size of their fan group has grown. Their fans are known for turning heads with their loud fan chants, synchronized choreography, and matching costumes in support of the group.
