Not trying to be overly offensive here. It's nice that they are able to achieve their dreams as kpop idol. But it's only accepted because kpop industry wants to capitalise on those markets without losing the essence of kpop.
And i believe it's still tough for SEA idols but what jyp has done has made good looking thai idols marketable so credit to him and nickhun so having one SEA idol in a group is extremely benificial for a big 3 group. There are taiwanese idols and hong kong idols too but I guess Taiwan and hongkong can be considered part of china too because that's what ccp thinks. Indonesia is a huge market so i'm surprised no big 3 company or mnet show is trying to debut one from there. Indonesian idols can have a huge impact on a big 3 group in future.
The reason i keep saying big 3 group is because of big 3 privelege. Big 3 groups change the direction of kpop. We can add bughit to the list as well now. If you are not from big 3 or bighit, idols are not gonna make it even if company fill your whole group with chinese and japanese idols and sea idols unless u are an mnet show.
Can we see indian idols or turkish idols in future kpop groups because kpop companies want to capitalise on those markets? Imagine a country of a population 100 times higher than korea supporting one idol from a kpop group just because they belong to the same country? How is that not considered an advantage?
