Since IVE beat the Izone curse, kpop Stans especially insecure BIG4 Stans “mostly HYBE Stans” came with the drag that’s their success is carried by Kakao, on year ago it was WY and today it’s a damn corporation which has no influence in kpop world.
They own Melon, okay, but IVE is #1 every other platform. Why Kpop doesn’t do the same toward to other sub-labels. I think Weeekly need more push than IVE lol.
Kakao is bigger than the big4 combined that’s a fact. But they have mostly the ressource not the influence. So let’s stop with the random IVE discredit and have the same energy toward their other artists lol.
