BP for example are booked for magazines by brands they work for, not YG. They are paid by Dior, YSL, Celine etc. But I think if idols are not promoting a particular brand or product the company probably pays for a cover for publicity/promotion and the idols themselves don't earn anything except for more recognition
I wish the old forums still existed so I could go back and read threads of people swearing they would never sell 1M or coping hard when the pre order numbers were announced
Before HYLT there were threads about how they weren't even a top 5 gg anymore people always get so brave when the pinks are on hiatus
Understood, I know you just losing arguments
I need to replied this last time since it's seems you don't understand, I'm not talking about Op
I'm talking about your inconsistent statements
My inconsistent statements are only inconsistent to you and your friend who keeps liking all your posts. I don't like when people discredit Blackpink -> people who happen to stan Aespa discredit BP -> I like posts shading those who discredit BP. It is not very hard to follow
I didn't even mention your fandom until you with that Aespa sig and badge started quoting me and trying to make it seem like I hate Aespa and their stans when in fact I just really do not care about them and barely use AKP as it is. Also, chill, the world is not going to end if someone says Sooyoung made a dumb point
You should ask yourselves the Question
You are the first that name dropped "Mys"
You saying that this thread may have been inspired by "Mys" yada yada....
And at the later parts you're agreeing to calling them out
Look back at your pervious replies, and then you will find a very inconsistent statements
I always speak FACTS
The point is, it's only 2 users who may offend you but don't generalize us pls
I am responding just to say I cringed at this sentence please really don't quote me again
And again, OP has stated many times this thread is about the 2-3 very toxic users in that thread not about the fandom
2+2 = 5
Just now you're saying that it doesn't call out any fandom specifically
and now you saying this???
Isn't that by liking you just indirectly calling them out???
And now you agreeing to making a thread calling them out??
So which one?
Are you okay?
Where did I call out MYs - I'm literally just calling out people who discredit my faves with the bullshit brand power/fandom = charting good excuse. Not my problem if the most recent example of this is Aespa stans. Other gg stans have tried it too and blinks have also called them out. I don't care who you stan if you post dumb things like that I'm going to disagree with you
Please don't quote me again you don't make a lot of sense
This thread whole discussion is SUS
Look at the first replies specifically talking about that thread
You also the one liking the first pages
If you guys have problem, just talk directly talk to the person or the people caused that
No need this passive-aggressive thread
Why would I not like posts calling out the users who used stupid arguments to downplay my faves lol
We're not gonna PM every user who makes a dumb comment on this forum - it's much easier to just make a thread calling out how ridiculous it is to say in 2021 that a big fandom/brand power = charting good!
Who is this people ??
This thread is created not long after "that thread" is closed
The math is not mathing
Blackpink have been successful a long time before Next Level was released lmao people have been saying this since they started beating other ggs in 2020. This thread may have been inspired by MYs saying the same thing earlier but it doesn't call out any fandom specifically so stop with the main character syndrome here and accusing OP of being petty when they're just tired of seeing BP discredited everywhere with the same stupid arguments
I don't think I can name the user lol, but a MY said that basically BLACKPINK songs being able to stay on Melon was fandom driven and that only top 10 meant real GP relevancy or something, which is bullshit.
But I'm uncomfortable with this thread's energy trying to make it seem as if people otherwise were agreeing and hating on BLACKPINK....
People that were respectfully arguing NL is a bigger domestic hit than HYLT with data are now being vilified, that's just weird...
Not even gonna address the "they need BP for their faves to shine and be relevant" mess
Not only that but you also have the biggest MY on like the second page saying Blackpink only does well because their brand power in Korea while Aespa is because of their own merits and music quality. That's what this whole thread is about lmao
Nah, the funniest part is the poll where delusional blinks voted HYLT, even though it is not even close. Yall are setting up your girls, just like always.
You should be more worried about rookies outselling anything the nation's girl group has released since 2018 than what blinks are doing! Will you also cry about China sales when Aespa starts outselling your faves?
Playing with delusional blinks ain't even fun anymore.
Also, OP is clearly trolling blinks, knowing OP, he is quite knowledged in charts, he for sure knows NL is doing better. But good job making blinks look stupid as alway.s
Dreamer95 talking about others looking stupid is the funniest part of this thread...
I never knew LSG did that many weeks wow
BP having 3 entries is impressive
Am surprised, at least use stats or something that favor aespa. But to just say hylt is only has a hit song cuz its bp is just ludicrous.
I expect very soon they will be saying all bp songs are hits cuz its bp.
And when a bp song flops then what...
They don't have the stats that's why they have to pull out these excuses lol
Aespa are doing super well for rookies but in its run How You Like That went up against Hwasa, Zico ft Rain, SSAK3, and Dynamite and still had PAKs, nearly a month at #1 on Melon and 16 weeks on Melon top 10...not to mention almost 15 music show wins
Next Level never even cracked 600K ULs which HYLT maintained (and had well above) for weeks
One is probably a summer diary since people saw them filming at that amusement park...which is again nothing new since we've been getting summer diaries since 2019 anyway
The other is going to be some new scam with recycled content. YG truly the best company!
They literally just added 2 seconds of a different car scene from the original video and called it a day
Besides that it is the exact same video
YG really refuses to promote BP in japan at all
I think people are being ridiculous about this. It's probably group music, people need to wait for things to be confirmed before they start jumping other members or insisting their faves leave the group
As a blink, I feel like it's hard in general to speak on certain groups without being accused of having ill-intentions
If you make a comment about Aespa that's not overwhelmingly positive, you're called salty or jealous (of what?) or a brown-noser, which I saw happened to you
I also find it annoying how there's hardly any blinks left on this forum, yet I see people making accusations about the fandom all the time based on either the old forum or those two infamous users
