  • Should be IVE.
  • IVE what else? It’s still half a year away and nobody knows what is going to happen, but if it’s media play, a minimum of one hit song, right?
  • Who doesn’t know who will belong to IVE?
  • IVE is that the wall.
  • IVE beats all, then maybe Kep1er.
  • This award should only belong to IVE, what has LE SSERAFIM achieved? Debut is a smaller amount than per week, don’t drag another group sure media play.
  • IVE could be a wall, but Hybe media play is so obvious.
  • Hope NMIXX can have a rookie award.
  • IVE is already at the extent where all rookie awards have the group’s name engraved on them. Are the opposite groups comparable?
  • LE SSERAFIM mustn’t be here, starting with the group seal. How dare you compare with IVE? First of all, right from the song it had been impossible to win. Public recognition is additionally not equal. Now IVE is the most well-liked group among primary school students.
