K-Pop thriving. W-PopGirl-Pop is dead. Surprised?

Recommended Posts

Scotland

K-Pop the genre is thriving even in Anglo countries, with groups like BLACKPINK, TWICE, BTS, and etc.. breaking RECORDS and scoring hits left and right. Serving artistry, visuals, vocals, production, etc..

 

Meanwhile Western Pop Girl pop is DEAD. No hits for pop girls. White women pop musicians have to call up K-Pop bands for collabs in order to get hits, and the music is DATED.

 

What happened and surprised?

Kpop outside Asia is only happening inside their fanbases, nobody cares otherwise, they're too childish and not what people like in 2020

Actually this is true. When you check their Youtube stats, like %70 of views are from SEA. 

Outside of it, GP don't use Kpop at all, this is why they have big debuts due to their fanbases but then drop quickly and don't have impressive longevity.

The puppets planned, created and micromanaged at every level by publicly traded companies. It's just another showing that capitalism indeed works.

I can't name a single genuine non-local hit that has come out of the genre besides Gangnam Style. It's completely stan-driven. Is that stan base growing? Sure, and that's great. But it's still not really a thing outside of Asia

And to call "white women pop" music dated is kind of ironic given that KPOP is generally one of the most generic dated styles.

It still leaves a lot to be desired in terms of great bodies of work but they churn out good, fun bops with amazing visuals and performances on the regular.

genuine question 

 

why do kpop fans have this inferiority complex mixed with an obsession to prove kpop is bigger than it is :deadbanana2:

 

if kpop is so superior just enjoy stanning the superior genre why always bring "western" pop as a comparation 

 

why are you guys so obsessed into proving kpop is better?

 

if it is it would speak for itself the same for the said success you are talking about

 

 literally every week a similar thread is made and the person creating the thread always seem so invested and mad at having people agreeing , just enjoy what you like and let people live 

 

 

the truth is that kpop will never be superior to western pop or whatever you want to call it, because kpop takes from the other it wouldn't exist without it, that's why it's always so behind and it feels dated , that's why fans buy 10x copies, stream like crazy and indulge into all sorts of fraudulent activities to inflate popularity and relevance 

 

like literally give it a rest talking about it and creating threads won't change facts

like I'm a bit salty because you guys are literally ruining every corner of the internet with your obsession

even atrl is becoming annoying because of it  , twitter is literally hell with so many fancams

 

some of you need to seek help and stop being so obsessed my younger sister is literally scared of all of you , when I go pick her up at school and she sees kpop stans she asks me to cross the street I ask her why she tells me because kpop stans are weird socially awkward and cringy and it makes her feel uncomfortable they even made a poor asian guy switch schools just because of these 3 stans chasing after him and calling him oppa

 

like give it a rest you are all embarrassing

There's absolutely an in-between.

I only found out recently that my best friend of years was also a bts fan because we just never talk about it, until I mentioned I went to their concert last year. You're only seeing the extremely vocal stans so ofc you think they're the only ones to exist. :foxaylove3:They've way more lowkey stans than you think.

they def seem like the minority I only see people not caring at all or being super obsessed with it to the point that's all they think and talk about, they even want to move to Korea :deadbanana2:

 

I actually used to listen to some kpop but fans turned me off big time

Wouldn't have said it better myself. There'll always be extreme stans on EVERY fandom. Extreme kpop stans will comment fancams in tweets like western pop stans will answer every tweet that's not about their fave saying "oop my fave outsold / outdid" wtv. It's as simple as that and thinking there's no in-between comes off as ignorant tbh.
