    Most talented male idol group(in singing especially)-tvxq, even the member with weakest vocal in tvxq can be the main vocal in other group, that's how good they are.

    that's why it's an insult when army compare their bias to tvxq or say that bts is the new tvxq/will surpass them. they don't even have 2 decent singers...

    How? Their albums never sold that much in Korea. Typically less than 100k. They cannot be compared to the sales of the groups here.

    SUPER JUNIOR are the one and only legend to be honest!  They are the ones who spread kpop all over the world and paved the way for the other korean idols to shine ,  they are called "Hallyu Wave Leaders " "The Great Gate Of Asia's Stardom " " Korea's Representative Idol " .....  I'M SO PROUD!!  (btw,  honorable mention in 2011 : MR SIMPLE album ^^ ❤)

    I don't understand how I can be so attached to SNSD. They release singles every hundred years and I still feel so different listening and watching them than when I listen to Twice or Gfriend or WSJN (and trust me I'm a very very intense fan of the three). They have something so special and I never really understood what it was.

    SNSD needed to fight and work hard for where they are today. When they debuted not as much people liked them and girl groups were not as common as nowadays. They are real survivors, especially now, when every 'old' groups are disbanding (2NE1, 4Minute, Kara, Beast?). Groups who debut these days have so much easier way to be be famous and successful. SNSD clearly deserve the love they get from fans. :)
