Whether it is true or not, there have been many artists accused of this 'Sajaegi' method over the years and the ones involved may just surprise you! Check out the list and see who were accused of manipulating their way to the top.

There are a lot of groups though who have done Sajaegi in their early careers and it has worked for them as they are some of the popular and top idol groups you see now.

so basically, fans are always annoyed when a group that is not from the BIG 3 succeeds... we really do live in a sick world

Clickbait using BTS in the thumbnail ahaaa. People should know by now that lists from AKP are so irrelevant

All these comments are so fucking salty why can't we just be multifandom trash together

its like expecting the world to live happily without wars, conflict or terrorism. Sounds good, but reality it never really happen. Too much greed, jealousy, and more in the human heart. Those lower in popularity are jealous of the top, while those fandoms at the top, have some fans whom are so Hearty and Proud that they diss those at the lower ranks.

Why do you think companies do this kind of thing? Because we have become a bunch of sheep who follow what's on trend/top instead of what's good

If you look at laboum they have done like 5 crowd funding in just 1 year !!! I guess they feel they owe the fans something to cheer for! Suckers!

So, I guess that Korean drama "Entertainer" wasn't so scripted after all. Now, I know why groups I love never have any top sales. Cause no talent shits manipulate the charts. To be honest BTS only had one song I like it "war of the hormones" To bad Twits (Twice) isn't there cause they suck the most. awful voices.

Kbloom OppaBean Wednesday, May 3, 2017

It's fair to say that we all have different takes on this issue, but idols mostly rise to fame because they're talented. All groups have the vast potential to do well, and none should be given hate for their steadfast dedication to their passion.
