Over time, the Kpop industry grows and attracts a large number of international fans. Along with the rise of Kpop, every year, countless groups debut, they bring the dream of becoming a famous idol, being admired worldwide.
However, the number of singers and groups that debut every year has only increased, not decreased, so the Kpop industry has gradually become saturated. Rookie idols, especially boy groups, are increasingly difficult to resonate with the public. Recently, a netizen on the Pann forum (Korea) listed the reason why rookie boy groups today are struggling to find their place, all because they pursue the same concept and music genre.
This netizen wrote: “Lately, I just sighed while watching music shows. They (male rookie groups) are always reusing the concept and releasing the same music, always intentionally screaming. They often put English words like “baby” (darling), “tonight” (tonight) into most of their songs. Many boys dream of becoming V, Kai, Jungkook and the second G-Dragon even though he has neither skills nor beauty ”.
The “OP” criticized that there are too many groups that do not have the skills or qualities to be idols and has also imitated the concept of popular boy groups like EXO or BTS. This person lamented, “I have a feeling they continue to use the same style and image as Love Shot by EXO or BTS from Blood Sweat & Tears era. Most of the rookies don’t have a good body, so they still look like this. I also have the feeling that they are the ones who like to sing and dance sincerely, but instead of passion, they jump into this industry for money and fame as idols.
Most rookie groups do not exude team spirit on stage, and they can only emphasize the image of “sexy and handsome”. Besides, the names of the groups are getting weirder, so I can’t remember them”.
Finally, the “OP” advises companies to be more mindful in selecting members for groups instead of choosing people who want to be famous. The management company should also make sure the trainees are kind and can sing or dance well.
This person’s post has received the approval of many Korean netizens, support up to thousands. Most netizens believe that the standards for idols to debut are lower and lower, the concept is not the same, they also imitate EXO and BTS, so many people do not bring the feeling of the passion for music the artist needs.
- I agree, feeling the standards for debut are lower and lower.
- I have the feeling that all boy groups are imitating famous artists like EXO and BTS.
- You’re right.
- Agree. Idols in the past were true celebrities, they exuded that aura, but now everyone is the same.
- Being a member of idol groups now makes me feel like a normal person I still see on the road.
- I don’t want to be blunt, but I see the male group members now like guys who like to go clubbing, not really like music lovers.
- Yeah, they put on over-makeup.
- I realized the concept of boy groups is identical after watching the music awards ceremony, haha.
