Now. Go to 15 years into the future from today and see where kpop is then come back to 2021 and tell me what you saw.
More of the same. But in a much smaller scale cause kpop is probably a shell of its former self.
For BTS to "pave the way" they have to make it possible for other groups to be as successful as them. And so far that's not happening. Not even close actually.
TVXQ can make more money in one Japan tour than BTS can in a world tour.
Last time BigBang released a song it charted #1 and broke records and they didn't even promote it cause they were in the military.
BTS is doing good though.
