This is major
Japan > Korea
I loved it and looping crazy.
I think she will do the best in korea. Like a legit Korean hit.
What is lore first time ever hearing this word in kpop. You mean like a universe?
I kinda don’t agree BU brought in many fans. That was their music. It’s the other way round. Music then everything else.
Your bias chooses you.
I don't think I need a therapy. I would've said idk who's projecting here, but I feel like I'd be offending people who actually have therapy sessions, so let's drop this part.
you didn't specifically say I was boring and not mature, but that doesn't mean I can't use those words in my reply. you were giving me advice to chill and not take things seriously, basically to have fun. and I said I'm perfectly fine the way I am, don't need advice from you. as you said this is a public space, I can write what I want.
pls stop replying this is getting ridiculous.
I just dm you before reading this.
I will leave now
aww sad you wasted your time reading
all I can see here is you trying to pass off hate as jokes and "it's just kpop" mentality to excuse toxicity. you don't like what this thread is calling out, so you're basically proving my exact point , sad you don't realize the irony.
if you read, I assume you read the part about me self reflecting as well ? why does it bother you someone is trying to analyze online posts of random users, while also trying to reflect on themselves ? why does it bother you someone sees everyone who works in the kpop industry as actual humans and calls out those who don't ?
no I'm not being smart, I'm being me and I'm sorry you felt like you had to barge in for whatever reason.
"don't take things too seriously life has taught me that" pls don't make me laugh
as if I would ever need life advice from you of all people.
being mature, responsible and self aware doesn't make you boring or "taking things too serious" but I guess you wouldn't know that
You are putting a lot of words in my mouth yikes. Talk about projections. Who ever said you are “boring” and “not mature”?
Continue the therapy session, I didn’t barge in, this isn’t a private site so I can I come and go as I want. You clearly posted this for everyone or this would never have been posted in the first place.
Yes my advice is still the same. Relax and chill.
They keep changing the narrative in this thread. First they said Aespa did better digitally than BTS in 2021. When that was proven false they moved on comparing strictly 2021 released songs to prove an even worse narrative that Aespa is somehow better digitally while ignoring the overall success of any artist. Then they moved on to basing the term “success” on weekly charting that changes so frequent.
Then you have others claiming Red Velvet slayed digitally last year when they didn’t.
If you want to celebrate your fave’s achievements good for you, but spreading downright delulu misinfo by dragging other artists just come off as insecure and desperate for validation.
They also want us to ignore other charts because they’re somehow manipulated when their faves aren’t topping those. Ridiculous.
Mind you most of these are literally streaming numbers, not even downright digital sales. Good God.
The OP is a big joke I will start to not take them seriously. Trying to act like a chart guy will false narratives.
Only BTS will remain.
If I find a song I like and I wanna listen to it 20 times back to back then I will. Looping is normal when you like a song.
A human loops, to be called a bot for it is stupid.
i heard those 2 seconds and the official teaser. if it's rock, it makes sense, yoongi really like guitars. i just hope it's not edm
Yoongi never disappoints and Kookie sounds good too
oh dw I'm enjoying at least I'm not obsessed with things or people I dislike, I don't need to be hateful to relieve my stress
just wrote a rant, and will move on obviously, thanks for the concern
btw, hiding under that "it's just kpop" umbrella is not cute, trying to shade others for taking humans and their careers seriously is not cute either
you're not contributing anything useful to the thread so let's just stop.
I was offering you my advice that was a very very long read. I spent time reading that. You don’t have to take it but also your smart ass attitude is rather ungrateful.
I was actually hoping to make you chillax with my post.
Anyway I don’t take things very seriously life has taught me that.
i heard a 2 second clip where jk sings stay alive but it was not enough to figure out what kind of song it is :)
what's the genre? spoil at least that :) i'd try to find the leaks but i'm useless
What is that all you heard?
This question is big I know but I can’t help but wonder if it’s true. I won’t pretend to know all of the stories behind the rise of every musician that has come and gone but we are currently living through the rise of BTS and let me say it is astounding when you think about it. BTS started out in a country whose music industry is ridiculously cut-throat and fierce. With hundreds and hundreds of kpop groups popping up over the years, competition is extremely tough so it is nearly impossible to make your lasting mark in the Korean music scene especially when you come from a small sized company that doesn’t have much impact compared to the giants. BTS however managed not only get noticed and differentiate themselves in the sea of kpop groups, but thrive in the industry. And they did so in a way that a group of their “lowly” status hasn’t ever done before. Despite the system’s design to weed out those outside of the hierarchy, BTS were able to first survive then grow and now conquer. But it didn’t stop there.
Korea is a relatively big music market but when it comes to global recognition it typically misses its mark. With hundreds of boy and girl groups coming out of Korea, none have been a mainstay in global music and therefore kpop has remained niche despite efforts otherwise. This was an agreed-upon truth prior to 2016. Even Armys at the time never imagined anything more beyond the few daesangs BTS managed to score. BTS continued to grow in their own country but miraculously in the west as well. A kpop group from a small company who should have been thrown into obscurity like their other unfortunate kpop peers somehow managed to gain traction and popularity in the world’s #1 music market. This was the rise no one expected. Their success is even stranger considering that this was a POC group who suffered from many negative stereotypes stemming from several aspects (Asian race, xenophobia, boy-band stigma, kpop industry hatred, fan-girl shaming, etc etc). Not to mention the western music industry’s pure reluctance to accept something so strange and foreign to them; the “assimilation” process for BTS and Army when it comes to the rise in the US was incredibly grueling and upsetting to say the least. On top of ALL of that their own country’s music industry tried to bring them down on numerous occasions alongside greater parts of the kpop community who furthered these efforts mercilessly. They are THE group who shouldn’t have made it considering all that was against them and all they had to face.
Now BTS are leading artists in the world’s top 3 music markets with no signs of slowing down. They are playing head to head with some of the biggest global superstars of this era which is nothing short of incredible. Logically and realistically, they shouldn’t be as big as they are today. But they did it despite the ridiculous odds of it all. This is why I think their story is one of the greatest if not the greatest of all time. Let me know what you think about this question and if its true for you. If there is an artist that made it globally that had even more odds up against them I would love to know!
Edit: Forgot to mention a huge factor: they did this all while speaking in their native language
The answer to your question is YES.
you clearly missed my points, but you do you
I find writing fun and I posted a thread on a public forum, you have the right to reply ofc, but it seems like a waste of your time since you won't bother to understand anyway
I am sensing agitations
Remeber it’s supposed to be fun
