Do you think BTS rewrote the music business rules?

  • I was impressed by how accurate the Rolling Stone description of BTS is.

    They really did rewrite the rules. They disrupted the kpop industry in Korea, made it change course and made it start to change many of its entranced practices.


    Theyve already changed western business as well, as evidenced by how western pop stars have changed the way they release albums. Theyve shown that you can become a global superstar with no industry support, depending purely on fanbase. That you can top charts while not singing in a language spoken by many and while having no radio support and no platform curated playlisting. US industry has started to change their release schedules according to BTS. Western artists are signing up to weverse. There are signs of their impact.



    I hope this continues and they change the industry for the better even more, giving more power to artists who grow by gaining grassroots level support and breaking the stranglehold big labels have on who gets to be a big star.

  • yeah absolutely they revolutionized music consumption in the west in the sense that more people are open to non english songs and non traditional sounds. And they proved, a big fandom is more valuable than being an industry plant.


    the rolling stone article is so well written. I recommend everyone read it.

    My favorite part .

    That deserves its own thread. BTS confidently disassembling societal expectations and gender norms and acknowledging it is just as impactful.

    You 'd be wrong. A korean boy band with zero industry push cemented their place as the true global act . If that's not unprecedented and revolutionary changing the traditional paradigms of the music business i don't know what is. You bitter akp user saying they have no impact is meaningless when they entered the history books by topping hot100 and

    And becoming more and more mainstream.

    lol are you serius?, BGs are simply a product created by a series of men to take money from girls and adolescents, that is it, what impact could something like this have on the music industry? other than bulk purchases and that kind of shit?


    Do you think someone in a country other than Korea will say in 15 years "oh yes, my great inspiration was BTS"?, Be objective, okay, BTS is successful, no one denies it, but they are still a pre-fabricated act, like any BG, they ain't no revolutionary act

  • Absolutely. BTS/ Big Hit has changed the game forever. They pretty much did what Death Row Records was supposed to do back in the 90s.


    Few labels came close, like Def Jam, but never got put in the position that BTS is in. They pretty much have the keys to the music game.


    In the music industry, a lot of folks like to play follow the leader and BTS is the leader now.

    No, they are the real Revolution.

    Interesting of you to talk about Korea when they are featured on Rolling Stone US cover, the most reputed music publication

    Oh and they have addressed the United Nations General Assembly twice and have had their own Time Magazine cover. So much for only Korea remembering them.

    Lol i see that kpop being mostly populated by robots could lead you to think that BTS is no different. But the ignorance in this post is outstanding.

    BTS is one of few genuine and authentic acts there is globally kpop or not kpop. much in control of their musical direction and artistry.

    As for that line about adolescents, yawn. The fact that you intentionally downplay how diverse the ARMYs demographics is very telling about what kind of user you are.

    Also the dismissive tone toward female teenagers cannot be more mysoginistic.


    At last, You not being able to imagine people getting inspired by BTS in 15 years is irrelevant. I say, people all around the world are inspired by their story, their music and the force of good they represent that doesn't change cuz of your skewed input. They entered the history books , time to deal with it
