The Korea Business Research Institute released their results for the October brand reputation rankings among individual boy group members. The institute analyzed media coverage, interaction, and community indexes based on 160,600,430 pieces of big data, from September 19 to October 20 on 349 individual boy group members.

Wanna One members swept the top rankings again, while many other former “Producer 101 Season 2” contestants who have been or will soon be promoting, made their mark on the list as well. Many BTS and BTOB members also rose on the rankings.
