TWICE and Red Velvet have a discography to choose from whereas BLACKPINK have what 12 songs? 

But BP was the one who has a chance of breaking it into the U.S. 

 

Are BLACKPINK the most Americanized of Kpop groups?

western-friendly pop songs

They fit the western type of a GG.

 

Their songs are cool and easy listening, so people who's not into kpop can also enjoy, each girl has her own style (ending the excuse "i can't tell who is who!!!") and there's only 4 of them.

I'd like to quote how P4k put it:

Quote

BLACKPINK’s core philosophy is rooted in mixing the hard and the soft, a concept fitting of their name. But because the sonic elements here are such polar opposites, it seems like another A&R tactic to ram in every genre, mood, and feeling to make the group marketable to the widest audience possible.

Their songs and concepts are very appealing to the western audience. It's not rocket science.

Twice and Red Velvet are too cutesy to have international appeal

 

Blackpink's members are also more visually appealing than most Twice and Red Velvet members

TWICE will never make it, imo. They have such a childish style, there's 9 of them and their music sucks. It's already hard for a GG to happen and on their case it's almost Impossible.

 

Red Velvet is very hit or miss for me. They could have a shot but would need to change lots of things.

Also, most of BP's title tracks are hard, in line with what western music fans want from groups. Girls dressed in school uniforms and cosplaying as 12 year olds does not scream female empowerment.

 

I think Red Velvet's music is just too varied and whiplash-y.

Twice don't need to happen they make more money in Japan that BP will every make in Europe and America.

TWICE are going girl crush this comeback and will completely evolve sonically.

Each member is distinct. Great visuals, anthemic songs.

DDDD and KTL scream 2NE1 rejects though, it’s the same formula Teddy used for 2NE1 hard hitting songs, even their ballads sound like 2NE1 rehashes

Although I love RV & the idea behind their concept, they switch it up too much to appeal to the western audience. Anything they might've build up with God Boy was cancelled the minute they dropped Power Up (+ and their recent releases were straight up duds).

I’m really trying to think of a 2NE1 song here, the closest I can think of is IATB but they only share a noisy chorus

 

That’s a literal insult to 2NE1’s ballads sis.. they really don’t
