what really went wrong with KEP1ER..

  • seems like they made no noise even internationally, atleast NMIXX have big fanbase

    im sad bcs the girls dont have that much time but seems like they are getting overshadow day by day and even NMIXX seems bigger & popular than them now

    UP! is very refreshing and public friendly song but it failed to even enter the bottom of chart...why?

    they got all.. popular survival show, skills, visual, good song, and even the girls have thei own charm

    what really went wrong? :-(

  • Didn't they just sell out their fanmeeting in Japan in minutes? I think they're doing fine.

  • 1. They don’t really have any stand out members, this is made even worse by the fact that they will always be compared to Izone where each member was so distinct.


    2. Their fans are their own worst enemy constantly fighting with each other.


    3. Their Queendon run really ruined any sort of reputation they had built up.

  • Queendom.


    But saying they didn’t make noise internationally is a lie, wa da da is one of the longest charting debut song and it did well In japan.


    Wadada was bigger than O.O internationally. Especially in Japan. It already reached 100M on Spotify.

    Wa Da Da is like 8 months ago

    Im refering to their recent release Up!

    Im expecting them to atleast receive the same hype as STAYC internationally

  • The trainee pool already wasn't that great but to make matters worse Mnet pushed all the wrong the girls, and as usual ifans started acting like they were Simon Cowell and prioritized the "talented" trainees who didn't have the visuals or charms to build a large fanbase or public recognition, ifans also made the mistake of obsessing over Chinese trainees (idk why they always have this weird anti-korean mind set every time there is a show with mix nationals it's so annoying), lots of the good Korean trainees got booted, in part because of ifans and because of mnet stupid elimination system, and Koreans for some strange reason thought that Chaehyun McBland was a good candidate for the group and god only knows why but for #1 as well.


    The group that would have actually been popular with the general public had Mnet done their jobs


    Gu Yi Zhou ( had NO political scandal with China and was a visual that Mnet never pushed until the very last) on top of it she had great variety sense and was talented.

    The other waste was the Japanese trainee Ikema Ruan. Koreans really liked her visual as well but like Yizhou she wasn't pushed.

    Bahiyiih stans gonna be mad but Guin Myah would have been a more popular pick for the wasian. Koreans actually loved her a lot and she was popular internationally as well. Yeah, she wouldn't have had Bahiyiih's huge fanbase but in this scenario, they wouldn't even have been necessary had Mnet done the job correctly.

    And of freaking course, we cannot forget Yurina. She should have been in the group with Xiaoting.

    But of course, "talent" won. And now there are girls in Kep1er that no one but their fans care about.



    And YES. I know I sound bitter. That's the point. :pepe-firing:


    Honorary mention of Chen Hsin Wei who could have been huge if not for her political statement with China. She had the makings to be a stand-out visual if not the visual of the group. She was freaking funny too.

    Oh, and also that girl who had the amazing Aura until she for whatever reason butchered it with that haircut.

    NMIXX has that JYP fan base.



    Both sell lots of albums, but nobody streams their songs.
