Polls, polls, polls

This month seems to be the start of the season of polls, let’s share some news to several polls that Danity wins for Kang Daniel on a regular basis.

First, Idol Pick. Kang Daniel again topped Idol Pick with 81,189 points.

Danity also won a time square ad for the artist with Fan Plus for Kang Daniel’s one year solo debut anniversary.

Two polls just finished today too.

The 2020 MTN Broadcast Advertising Festival – Best Viewer Award for KT Galaxy Note 10.

It should be noted that KT is the first big brand that trusted Kang Daniel back in 2019 when he was being banned from broadcast.

Danity also won the poll on Idol Champ for all artists who debuted July. Promotion videos will be played on MBC every1 and MBC drama channels.

Ongoing vote for Soribada Popularity Award through the Choeaedol App until August 2, 2020. Kang Daniel is up against all male solo and group artists.

Danity works hard on these polls to show their never-ending love and support to their artist, Kang Daniel.

OST official MV

Finally, an official MV for Backstreet Rookie 1st OST “Something” by Kang Daniel is uploaded on SBS Now official Youtube account. 

Online Concerts

Kang Daniel is a busy man. Aside from being a KPOP solo artist, he is CEO of his own entertainment agency and a cyber university student! Still he managed to participate in two online concerts this week – KCON and Pepsi Showcase.


Kang Daniel and Danity enjoyed the sweet time together during KCON – even if it was virtual. The artist did seem like he got a lot of energy from his Danity.

KCON forbids anyone to put up any links or recordings of the concert but hopefully we will be able to officially watch some of it soon.

After performance, Kang Daniel posted a thankful Instagram update for all the Danity who stayed up to watch his stage.

Pepsi Online Showcase

Similar to the Tiktok Online Stage, Kang Daniel went to the venue to have the concert with other artists live.

Singer Brand Reputation Ranking

The ranking is published for June and has Kang Daniel soaring back to number 3 after ranking 8th in May. 

Kang Daniel rank 3rd after BTS and trot winner Im Young-woong. Kang Daniel’s score shot to 60.85% from the previous published ranking.

The Singer Brand Reputation Ranking should not be confused with other rankings such as the Top 100 Idols Brand Reputation Ranking which ranks all idols individually (not as a group) and excludes non-KPOP singers (such as trot singers) all in one category. It is also different from Boy Group Brand Reputation Ranking because this ranking only includes individual members of artist in a group. Solo artist can not be in this said ranking.

Since Kang Daniel is now a solo artist, he may only rank in Top 100 Idols Brand Reputation Ranking and Singer Brand Reputation Ranking.

Kang Daniel is also included in Male CF Model Brand Reputation Ranking but this ranking does not come out monthly.
