“I know A Pink receives a lot of criticism online but

through all of the hard competition, they have had a steady success over the years. They had 2 concerts in Korea and recently finished their North American tour. Their success is awesome even if Girls’ Generation is on top of all female groups. But A Pink is awesome too… I think I’m in love T_T_T_T

Their official fan cafe has over 150,000 now! That is second place behind Girls’ Generation amongst female groups and 3rd behind all female idols.

[ +38 / -3] I think A Pink isn’t one of the group that get criticized online that often. I’m not a fan of them but they were the group I was interested in before their debut haha. Every time I got to see them, I thought they were all so nice. Park Chorong as the leader was such a good choice that it makes me think I wish I had an unni like that.. I heard they didn’t even fight after their debut.. Their teamwork is great and their agency isn’t even as good! Daebak!

[ +30 / -1] A Pink is just A Pink and not second of anyone else. Let’s come back A Pink!
