Hundreds of idols’ scores are compared in order to determine the artist whose brand reputation stood out among the rest. Winter’s total brand reputation index score was over 3.8 million!

Winter is only the third 4th generation girl group member to peak at #1 on the brand reputation list! Earlier this year in June, Karina peaked at #1, marking the first time an aespa member topped the chart — the start to their consistent presence on top of the list. She also held the title for July, becoming the first 4th gen girl group member to stay at #1 for two consecutive months!

But the honor of first 4th gen girl group member to rank #1 on the brand reputation chart belongs to ITZY‘s Yeji, who topped the chart only six months after debuting. Yeji reached #1 in August 2019, and ranked #18 this month!
