4th Generation Boy Groups: Korean Digitals' Analysis

  • Hello!


    Today, I took a few hours to dedicate to analyzing the state of 4th generation boy group digitals by taking 10 prominent

    rookie/new generation boy groups and calculating averages across

    • Melon ULs
    • Melon streams
    • Genie unique listeners (across title tracks)
    • Gaon digital points (if applicable)
    • cumulative streams on Genie for Korean albums (single, mini, and full)

    I also added in their Melon followers.



    Below in the spoiler is my methodology:



    With that in mind, here is the ranking of all 10 groups based on digital proficiency.



    1. TXT - 99172

    2. AB6IX - 80331

    3. The Boyz - 25728

    4. Enhypen - 23869

    5. Cravity - 22353

    6. CIX - 13075

    7. Stray Kids - 11456

    8. Treasure - 8807

    9. Oneus - 7883

    10. ATEEZ - 5386




    Here is the breakdown on a Google Sheet document:

  • 1. Why did you take Genie ULs & streams into consideration but not Melon ULs & streams?

    2. Why did you take Melon likes & followers into consideration but not the same for Genie?

    3. Why did you decide to divide by 1000?


    Its because it shows a different picture

    1. I knew this would be asked, but I can't find Melon info for 6/10 of these groups, since I don't have the app and no chart accounts track these stats actively besides a TXT one I follow on Twitter.


    2. I never thought of taking Genie likes into consideration but that would take another couple of hours.

    Genie doesn't really have followers, they have profile likes.

    3. I'd rather have a standard divisor for all values than change it to get all final values to a 2- or 3- digit addend.

    I didn't do this list to invalidate Treasure at all; I don't follow YG chart accounts, so finding info about Treasure isn't that easy.


    I still can't find info for CIX, Oneus, AB6IX, Stray Kids, or ATEEZ.


    So I can't include Melon ULs or streams unless I have data for all 10 groups.

  • I just checked your methodology and it seems fair (at first I was confused about why you included the number of followers on Melon, as the other 4 values revolve only around the tracks, so I thought it's only about how good they're doing music wise)

    Yeah, I didn't want to weigh Genie or Melon too heavily on either side.


    Melon followers I could get rid of only if I can find Melon data for the tracks.
