When an idol participates in the songwriting process, and write like 1 sentence in the whole song people be like "OMG SONGWWRITER XXXXX SUCH DEEP LYRICS SO TALENTED" but when a band does it it's "they are a band obviously they write their own songs"
You see people saying stuff like "they are a band of course they play their own instruments", but you don't see stupid shit like "they are an idol of course they sing and dance" like imagine how stupid that sounds right?
Bands probably on average contribute more to their music production from playing their own instruments and recording the sounds in the studio but people take all these for granted. I mean it's not like most idols choreograph their own dance anyways right like 99% doesn't.
Do you think people hold bands at a higher standard than your typical idol group? When an idol group does it, it's revolutionary but when a band does it, it's taken for granted
