Z-pop Dream was a attempt of making Kpop globalized by using english lyrics, and giving some asian nationalities not usually getting recruited by Kpop agencies a chance. That seems to have failed since Zgirls and Zboys seems to be on indefinite hiatus and perhaps even quietly disbanded. But what if their lineup and debut songs was totally different? Despite not singing in korean and having korean members.
This is the original lineup of Z-Girls and their debut song.
The song was generic and very outdated to be honest. It sounded like something made in early 2000's. The girls look fine, but many said they don't fit the korean beauty standard.
But what if the lineup was this? I kept Carlyn(filippino), Mahiro(japanese)and Joanne(taiwanese)because I think they do fit Kpop standard.
Do you think they would have been received better by fans, and not been banned from performing on korean music shows?
But I think the change in looks for India, Indonesia and Vietnam wouldn't have helped. The problem was the language and the lack of Koreans.
If they had sung in Korean and had a few Korean members, then it might have established them as a more acceptable KPOP act. Singing in English took them too far away as an Asian act never mind KPOP.
WayV singing Chinese on Korean shows is an outlier because it is backed by a Big 3 in SM and the members came from a concept, NCT, that everyone knew would create subunits across Asia. If we are lucky enough to get a Vietnamese or Indonesian version of NCT, I guarantee you it would also get on Korean shows like WayV.
I thought the Vietnamese ZGirl, Queen, looked fine. You shouldn't need to change her
