Chorong shared "It"s been three years." While MC Yoo Hee Yeol gets the reason why the girls won"t do any sexy concept like any fan boys would like to see, the girls shared, "Usually, if you"ve promoted for this long, other girl groups start doing sexy concepts, but A Pink have consistently done the innocent concept though I am a bit sad about it. But since you"re a girl group, have you ever thought of doing a sexy concept?"

Chorong shared her opinion saying, "As a woman, it"s very good to hear that you"re sexy. But we have a member who is still not of age yet. Our maknae is still 19 years old. Our figures are not really suited for the sexy concept. As we age, we want to show a natural sexiness that comes as we get older. So we haven"t really thought about doing a sexy [concept]."

Its a good thing that the girls also considerate of each other specially they have a younger member, they"ve also wanted to stay sweet and not being pressured by other kpop girl groups concept. They want their fans to support them as they are.

Other trending girl groups comfortably take their spot in the fourth level, or "Mania Level". Crayon Pop, which wasn"t even on the list in the previous years, has made their entrance into the chart on this level, thanks to their massive success with "Bar Bar Bar". Nine Muses has also moved up into this group, showcasing their growing potential. Meanwhile, it appears KARA had fallen three steps to land in this level. Reps speculated that with the loss of both Nicole and Jiyoung, KARA has started to lose some of its spark. Brown Eyed Girls, After School, and Dal Shabet are also comfortably positioned in this tier as well.

Six girl groups are in the second to last layer called "Maginot Line". Two of these girl groups is the newcomer Ladies" Code as well as AOA and Hello Venus, both of who were in the tier below last year. Others include the veteran idol group Wonder Girls and T-ara, both of which fell down two steps. Rainbow also kept their position in this tier.

Last but not least, Bestie set themselves apart from all the other newly debuted girl groups as they landed in the last level as "Potential Candidates".
