It looks like 2018 is Wanna One's year as the South Korean boy band continues to thrive during this time. In fact, the "I Promise You" hitmakers successfully tops other famous K-pop idols, like BTS, Black Pink, and more, in brand value for April.

According to Metro, Korea Institute of Corporate Reputation revealed Wanna One topped this month's data, surpassing BTS, Twice, Winner, and a lot more. With 103,939,104 data checked from March 20 to April 21, the group managed to exceed other famous South Korean idols' statistics.

In fact, Wanna One's total data for the month of April went up by 5.77 percent compared to the boy band's figures from March with only 98.26 million. This time, Min-Hyun, Seong-wu, Kuan-lin, Jin-young, Daniel, Ji-sung, Jae-hwan, Dae-Hwi, Ji-hoon, Woo-jin, and Sung-Woon got 12.05 million reputation score. Evidently, they climbed up by 10.33 percent from their previous 10.92 million figures. They also got 89.66 percent of positive reaction.

Following Wanna One is BTS. V, Suga, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Jimin, and J-Hope got the second place with 8.02 million. Unfortunately, the fan-favorite "Mic Drop" singers got low figures compared to the 11.07 million they got last month.
