2nd gen is still the most iconic!

  • Exactly. 2nd Gen was 10xs more fun and interesting. It had iconic moments after iconic moments among most groups. Varieties were so interesting. No wonder GP only knows old idols. At that time the idol industry was thriving on tv. I know the social media numbers aren't comparable to 3rd gen but things were not as half as easy to access to as it is now.

    You spilled! Tbh the word FUN describes this gen so much!! They were everywhere and wow, such great moments! I miss them and I miss an era like this.

    Yeees! I don't even know why I made this thread as now I'm sad this is all in the past :pepe-sad: kkkkk ah s! Kkkkk

    But remember is to live!

    But for real, looking at kpop now and then we can see how unfortunately things changed so much. Today everything is individual, groups barely interacting, and groups barely having bops bops. In the past everybody just vibed together and made the gen as a whole an irreplaceable place and memory!

  • Also don't forget, all the gg-bg collaborations!! There were so, so many of them, so many fun and iconic ones!!! :omgr:

    Too many to mention them all, and since 3rd gen these bg-gg collaborations have become more and more rare and the fun of those collabs disappeared as well :sadr:

  • A part that will be missed! Unfortunately nowadays everybody acts like they don't know each other... Kkkk

    I love BB interactions with SNSD :borahae:

    I love BB interactions with SNSD :borahae:

    There were so, so many fun and entertaining interactions between all the groups, boy groups and girl groups, boy idols and girl idols altogether, it didn't matter, there was warmth and chemistry and above all they had FUN and radiated fun in all those variety shows and interactions, and thus made it fun and entertaining for fans to watch them.


    I think it's one of the reasons that K-pop groups and K-pop songs as a whole did so phenomenally well on the charts and were so popular with the general public in 2nd gen era: it was just fun and entertaining to see them interact and banter with eachother across the many shows.

    So true!!

    Idols weren't robotics, they always showed us how they enjoyed their career and this made gp and fans warm up to them as we could see how thankful and just humans they were!!

  • 2g had that magical air about it. It sorts like how say a new game (2g) is fresh and exciting and does its own things but later on things become formulaic and generic. Kpop nowadays is copying trends of what everyone else is doing or doing the same things as before.


    That's just the music, 2g idols were much more entertaining outside: regularly on TV, interacting with other groups, having fun and so on. Now everyone keeps to themselves most of the time even for special events like concerts.

    Actually what you said really hit me now. Yes, it feels like nowadays is just not copying, but just using trend things and as I said everybody is individual with little to none interaction between groups.

  • There's no other truth.

    The 2nd gen brought the best artists to light. Just to give few examples, 2nd gen gave us Taeyeon, Jonghyun, Taemin, CL, G-Dragon, Jay Park, the whole Super Junior's powerful vocal line, Hyuna, and many other talented vocalists, dancers, idols who you could feel they enjoyed being on stage.


    Whenever I want to make sure about why I fell in love with Kpop, I watch 2nd gen live performances.

    THOSE were true live performances!

    Yes! Honestly there are a few groups where I feel the love to be on stage nowadays.

    I also love to watch 2nd gen performances. It gives me such warm and happy feelings!

  • Agree. 2nd Gen era is trully iconic. I mean every group share spot in the limelight. During award shows, the result was unpredictable. Although the competition among the idol groups are very tight, still there are lots of interactions and collaborations among groups, especially the opposite sex. In terms of music, the music back then are more diverse. Nowadays, you can't differentiate the music style anymore. Even their looks, sorry to say, with those heavy make-ups, even with men, they almost look the same to me.
