Obviously, a lot of us have noticed by now that KPOP companies are shifting towards new generations to debut their own BGs or GGs. That's the only reason the idea of the 2nd gen, 3rd gen, or 4th gen exists. It's not like the oldest KPOP debut doesn't happen at all. Here's a list- https://www.koreaboo.com/lists…-debuted-later-age-usual/ , but in the majority, I have observed companies love to debut young teens.
- Younger kids have more energy and stamina to perform better than adults, they will easily grasp new dance styles, and training at a young age will give them more experience. (Thus withstanding every obstacle related to multiple schedules, traveling, music shows, concerts, etc)
- BGs will have time to make a strong fanbase until and unless members start enlisting for military services.
- A wider range of age groups will be interested in BGs or GGs.
- At a young age, the teen will be able to have a career when most of their own friends would be struggling to get a job.
- A loophole that eliminates artistic people to not pursue their dreams just because of their age. Well, I can reason why most of the companies wouldn't accept a male trainee in his 26 or 27 to debut because military services means halting group activities. But I don't find the reason to not accept a female trainee in her 25+ age fair. ( I know with age adult's body do give up, especially in KPOP but for me, 25 to 35 age range isn't that much to limit someone's talent).
- Overworking younger teens will have bad effects on their mental as well as physical health.
So what yall think about this?
