Koo Chang Hwan of the Korean Reputation Enterprise Institute said:

“The results of the analysis for February’s Brand Reputation shows TWICE as first place. They have been number 1 for 4 straight months now, dating back to November 2016. Red Velvet’s ranking surged thanks to their 4th mini-album “Rookie” but TWICE and BLACKPINK were able to hold their spots still. Red Velvet also won 1st place on a music show, so their brand ranking is expected to rise in the future.”
