This is the test for BH. To whether they will become a big company or a one group company. Good Luck. I know they can do it, but luck is also a factor.

Just my opinion, I don't think BTS' success will rub off this new group, when BTS went internation the new fans (my friends namely) weren't interested in kpop, only BTS. I don't think that ARMY's as such will mind them too much. I mean, I think they'll be like Stray Kids or NCT, big and growing, but not massive from the start like Twice or Blackpink for example

Twice popularity in debut era is far from blackpink ..bp already a big issues since 2012 plus its yg ent anyway..twice 's debut song didnt even chart in anywhere ..the girls doesnt have luxury facilities that blackpink had from the start..twice can be huge right now not bcoz of jyp but they r the 1 who makes jyp comeback from the grave n entered the big3 again after so long replaced by cube n fnc

I think so too............. their success will overshadow the new group rather than promote them, but we have to see for ourselves what really happens. Hopefully they gain at least a little recognition, even if it takes time

The pressure and expectations will be immense, they will likely be compared to BTS. I'm a huge bts fan but just because this group is coming from the same company as them does not mean i will be a fan of theirs. It depends on their music they bring and alot of other factors that come into play before or if i decide tto 100% support them but good luck to them

Oho this is interesting! I was just starting to think that now or later would be a suitable time to debut a new boy group! This will hopefully cement where BigHit stands as an entertainment company. Is it a one group wonder company or is it going to rise into the ranks of SM, YG and JYP? Like always with all other groups that debut I'm going to keep an eye on them just to see if they're worthy of my support.

while i think the success of a new group would definitely increase Big Hit's reputation, i don't think they yet stand or are close to standing alongside SM/JYP/YG. realistically the three biggest companies were all established >20 years ago, have many subsidiaries and have multiple divisions and cater to more than just the entertainment industry (retail, travel, production, etc.).


they've also all manufactured >10 successful groups, have many, many signed studio artists (choreographers, producers, composers, lyricists, etc.) and have many partnerships with other companies, even beyond other entertainment companies.


i feel like it takes relatively long-term, stable success to be considered at the top of the heap (from a business POV at the very least)

It's a stupid fan war. Fans of other boy groups believe that the ARMY is down voting articles about other boy groups so they down vote articles about BTS to get back at them. Same thing happens with some girl groups fans. Those people usually cast their votes after reading the title. They rarely bother reading the article.

If army really want to downvote, I think the allkpop website will be crashed. Army are too busy voting and streaming outside of allkpop, we got no time for fanwar. We are leading with a big gap for melon music awards. Mark my word, BTS will be getting a lot of daesangs end of this year.

Makes sense, they need to give any new group a chance to find themselves before BTS moves on or has to step down activities due to members' military service. Looking forward to seeing what they offer, BTS is a hard act to follow.

Yeah, I believe they don't take female trainees. I think they are wrong though. Just because that happened with Glam it doesn't mean it'll happen with other girls. If anything they'd be more weary and careful so I believe Big Hit should have female trainees and debut a girl group. Bang Si-Hyuk shouldn't blame all women because of what happened to his group lol.

Wish the best to the new group

I also hope Big Hit have trained them how to handle appreciation as well as trolls very well

They should know how to handle the pressures and get ready to be compared to their seniors which is bound to happen

Let’s wait for their debut and see what new concepts they come up with though am 100% sure they are going to be very different from BTS. Bang Si Hyuk is a businessman at the end of the day hence he will not replicate BTS....instead will introduce a group who are different

I hope they do well and that people avoid comparing to BTS. (I'm amazed they have been able to keep the member's identity, dispatch photos, anything related but the group debut itself away from media.)


I hope that they are a group with their own color, sound, concepts, and visuals. Hope they aren't forced down the "deep, aesthetic filled, secret mv hidden meaning, socially aware, social justice, underground rappers" route just because BTS found their own success and sound in that. Just like how SM boy groups like Shinee isn't compared with DBSK, or EXO/NCT to Suju because they have their own concepts and identity. I hope BTS can be now seen as respectable seniors and people don't start fanwars but instead root for interactions between them.


They have a lot of pressure since the Kpop industry will have an eye on them, will Big Hit produce another successful boy group or was BTS their one hit wonder? Will the boys live up to expectations set by BTS? are they a copy of them? better? worse? Just give them time, let them shine and find their sound.


(Watch Big Hit troll us with it actually being a band, guitars and drums and all, lol.)

Let's be honest, this group is going to become popular because of BTS. Their popularity is instantaneously. Surpassing some older boy groups. Every interview/guesting they go, people are going to mention BTS. Also every achievement they'll get, people going to credit BTS/ ARMYs. Sorry but that's the reality. Do you think they're going to start like bts, from nugu to stardom?

"I hope they go together because how young Jongkook is"


Very unlikely. Maybe they would go together if the age gap of them wouldn't be so big and if Bighit had other groups to back them up but judging the current situation, this won't happen.


"I don't mind the new group but emm BIGHIT should remember that BTS maade the money."


I don't think they will forget about their most successful group just because some members are going to the military soon and they're debuting a new boy group. They're not that dumb.

I don't think that will happen. Sure, they are probably going to focus a bit more on them since they are new and the goal is to make them at least successful enough to survive as a company after BTS disbands but that doesn't mean they will forget about BTS. They are the ones who made Bighit successful after all.

They're so irrelevant that people like you feel the need to spend their energy leaving hate comments.
