K-POP POWER! The top two trending topics of the Philippines on Thursday night were K-Pop related.

On July 4, the official FIFA World Cup Twitter account released a poll asking, “From the final four, which beat do you want heard inside the stadium?” The choices included BTS’ “Fake Love,” EXO’s “Power,” J Balvin’s “Mi Gente,” and the Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey collaboration, “The Middle.”

The fandoms of the two groups, BTS (called ARMYs) and EXO (called EXO-Ls), are known to be the biggest in K-Pop right now. It is not surprising that fans have come up with their own hashtags to show support for their faves. It was a close fight, with the ARMYs the leading the poll at first with two to three percentage points. However, in the last two to three hours, EXO-Ls caught up, bringing the results to a statistical tie.

Eventually, the poll ended with EXO’s “Power” winning by over 8,500 votes.
