To say 2.gen had no impact is pretty ironic...

  • If you consider the fact that if the first Hallyu-wave failed, there wouldn’t even be a 3. Gen to begin with and many of you wouldn’t be here.


    So many people who joined Kpop in the 2.gen were the ones who build the Kpop community and who united Kpop fans all over the world.

    K-Con or all these Kpop Forums wouldn’t be here. Yes AKP wouldn’t have been created if nobody was interested in the 2. Gen internationally. All these YouTubers who build a whole career around Kpop related topics brought in so much fans with their content too and they joined in the 2. Gen. Others started little projects in their country etc.


    Yes the Acts themself didn’t achieved as much as Acts now, but you know different times, different conditions. But it’s like a domino effect, it starts with something small and ends with something big, but every stone is important to reach the end. So there is not such thing as “ not important “ or “ had no impact “ especially when you were not there to even experience the era in the first place.


    So it’s pretty ironic that people who use a platform like AKP, created because there was a growing international interest in Kpop created in the era of the 2.gen, say it had no impact....

  • There are alot of times I just give the new fans their space to express their wrong opinions.


    Just so they feel more comfortable and accepted in their new surroundings.

  • I think less people would be saying stuff like that, if kpop fans didn't feel this inexplicable need to make everything into a competition by creating meaningless categories like "kpop generations" in the first place.

  • 2nd Gen literally inspired your faves to even join the industry take a few seats sofas

  • LMAO. It might no impact on them since social media is not so big at that time. If they no impact, there is nowhere people would know what is KPOP. Korean know how much impact 2nd gen in Hallyu wave, it's no exaggeration to say that they push that Hallyu wave 2.0. SUJU even got dubbed as KING OF HALLYU WAVE. It's sounds ignorant to denied it.

  • i wouldnt call the first hallyu wave a fail tho? none of the kpop groups that are crossing over would be able to if it werent for the second gen hallyu wave

    I don't think it starts because of 'KPOP generation'. I'm not sure when it is worse to compete for their faves, I think it starts getting worse when some people from every fandom race for 'most 24h views in yt'. I think that competition become unhealthy after that

  • 3rd gen fans thinking kpop started in 3rd gen and saying like they know everything

    :!: :!: :!:

    It’s so funny how they fight with people who joined Kpop during the 2. Gen and then be like nobody cares about Kpop before the 3. Gen ... I’m like “ who are you talking too?”

    It’s funny some call Acts who got legend status in Korea irrelevant or nobody cares about them... they are so convinced about it.

  • Maybe start giving credit to the founders of Kpop and the 1st Gen first before demanding we credit your 2nd gen faves.

    Who isn’t? I can’t remember anyone shading the 1.gen.
