ATEEZ is just over two years old as a group, and they’ve already taken the K-Pop world by storm. They released two Korean language mini-albums in 2020, TREASURE Epilogue: Action to Answer and ZERO: FEVER Part.1, both of which broke sales records for ATEEZ at the time of their release.

Because this group has become so successful this year, it could be interesting to take a look at how ATEEZ distributes the lines among their members. They all have quite distinct positions, so while the lines may look uneven, the part that each of them play in the group likely contributes to the amount of lines they have.

Here are the line distributions for all 11 songs that ATEEZ released in 2020, shown by percentages, as well as the amount of lines each member had in total and a final analysis of how the lines are distributed.

8th: Yeosang (vocalist, dancer, visual) (5.8%)

It appears that the members who are considered dancers in the group tend to get fewer lines, while those with just rapping or vocalist lines tend to get more lines. This makes sense, so that each member has their chance to shine in their strongest skill!

Jongho in particular is known for his incredibly powerful vocals, so it’s not a surprise that he has by far the most lines while the rest of the members have relatively even lines, but hopefully the others will get more in the future, since they’re all extremely talented!
