I was talking about worldwide not Japan...Have you seen the concerts of both of them worldwide???...That'll make you realize which group is more popular...In my country 100:1 ppl will recognize SNSD to AKB48
I love SNSD! And I think you can't compare both groups. SNSD can sing and dance very good. Their dances are also harder. I don't want to bash AKB48 but I think singing and dancing is not their speciality.
