There have been a lot of discussions and deep dives into looking at the line distributions of various K-Pop artists, since it’s a bit of a controversial subject and some fans find more issues with unfair distributions than others.

Another aspect of K-Pop performances that can be taken into account is center distribution — that is, which members have the most center time in choreographies. It’s not always the singing member that’s in the center, and oftentimes when there’s a dance break in the music or some other similar opportunity, one of the members that has fewer lines might get more of a spotlight on their dancing.
