i doubt it, ahyeon is one of the popular members along with chiquita and people see her as the next 'jennie' (in a good way).
i dont think not being seen for 2 months is that big of a deal tbh
a ton of babymonster stans and a few kpoppies thats on twitter, really are pushing the whole *new* "Jennie" thing on this girl.
like i saw somebody say that she gonna be the newer and younger "YG princess" and she gonna be the first to have a solo release and get brand deals, like Jennie did.
my opinion on that is...i wouldnt put it past YG.
i could see them playing up the whole BlackPink route on BabyMonster.
YG already put ads on every video on BabyMonster youtube channel, which is why they got all them views.
but of course YG going make it seem like they just automatically popular and easily getting 15 million views on regular content videos of little girls hanging out in their dorm and eating samgyeopsal
WHAT DO YALL THINK ABOUT HER LEAVING?
AND WILL BABYMONSTER SUCCEED WITHOUT HER?
just making this thread, so i can use this as proof i was right once it happens lol
Then we need to consider how many of the fans attending these kpop concerts are Koreans, so we can really understand how much of a pull kpop groups have in korea.
I think it is for the same reason the Japanese, Chinese, and Americans are the biggest buyers of kpop albums.
And most kpop listeners in Korea nowadays are casual listeners.
And won't really go out their way to buy a ticket or merch, depending on the group obviously.
You literally edited out your opinion from the OP which is what I was responding to. You can see that people above have quoted it.
Are you being dense on purpose
No, im telling you this post isnt about my opinion like i said.
I deleted my comment on it, cuz people making it about me and not about the actual topic that I posted.
So now that I deleted my statement, now people can focus on the actual post😊
What one earth are you going on about. They definitely can fill up big stadiums in SK without BTS or BP
The Dream concert can get away with having one or two semi big artists to sell out Seoul Olympic Stadium.
Korean award shows just know they can put up extortionate prices for overseas fans as domestic fans see idols frequently
This post isnt about my opinion, this is about what Koreans feel, so dont make it about me lmao.
And yeah of course it's the price lol
The Seoul Music Awards are being held in Thailand again for this year
Mnet Asian Music Awards and the music bank festival are both being held in Japan
The Asian Artists Awards are taking place in the Philippines this year too
Backdoor would’ve been epic
None of STRAY KIDS songs wouldve been epic at the VMAS💀
Same for TXT, them performing "Sugar Rush Ride" wouldn't have been it for me either, for a American award show for the first time and in front of American celebrities, even though it's a good song for kpop standards.
What they did with "Back For More" was amazing musically and it was very Michael Jackson themed, which I guess they was going for.
Either way it sounded good and did them justice in a Live performance, especially for a debut.
"S - Class" just wasn't it man.
Too noisy, too many people on stage, none of the outfits stood out.
Yeah they did some cool tricks and flips..but it gave inkigayo, and wasn't nothing super special.
Atleast they can compose and everyone is talented in that group
I dont even fw blackpink frfr.
But I always see people say "at least STRAY KIDS make their own music"...
Honey, maybe its best if they dont anymore, because whatever they producing and thinking it sound good, it dont.
maybe they need to let someone else from the outside give it a go for them for their next album
