Oftentimes when sampling a group of K-Pop songs to look at how their lines are distributed, you’ll find a lot of songs with rather uneven distributions. It’s fairly common in the music genre, although some groups are definitely less prone to it than others!

Interestingly, though, most of the most popular songs from February have a pretty even, fair distribution of lines between members. Maybe this is just a coincidence, or maybe it’s a sign that companies are starting to recognize that it generally makes fans happier to see members be given lines more evenly.
