bts and armys are one of the reasons for blackpink's popularity

1) no im not a women hater

2) im talking about blackpinks fans outside of korea. theyre from a big company and promoted in every magazine every week in korea with a lot of media play so of course theyre popular in korea

3) most, lets say, 80% or more of bps international fans are armys

4) most of their fans discovered them after discovering bts or hearing about bts and then listening to more kpop stuff even if theyre not armys

5) theyre marked by many kpop fans as "the female bts" i dont know why maybe bc of their more western friendly music and concepts

7) a lot of their popularity comes from people who ship them with bts

8) yg media plays blackpink by using bts' name in articles and comparing them

9) bp's spotify page says their music is similiar to bts

10) if you take down every army or a fan of bts or a shipper from bps fans you come down to a so-so number of blinks who dont stan bts or kpop stans who stan bp


just putting it out there do with this information whatever you like, but a lot of bps fans are just armys who sometimes wanna talk about more girly stuff bts cant give to them so they turn to blackpink

  1. Black Pink
  2. Jennie
  3. Jisoo
  4. Rose
  5. Lisa

Then you all should bow to H.O.T and TVXQ. They are the main reason of Kpop popularity.

Very true but BTS would have made it.. everyone else I'm not so sure but you can't say groups like BIG BANG and EXO wouldn't have made it. If anyone they could have been H.O.T and TVXQ but more.. but BTS grew in America first and did things no Kpop artists have even imagined and more.

And I don't agree with this post.. maybe it helped at most but he made it sound like BTS made BP, which is stupid.

The reason that person is saying the truth is, the competition TVXQ and HOT faced is on an another level than BTS. BTS would've made it, but the fact is the entire kpop music industry was levelled up by those 2 groups which helped BTS more than BTS struggling on their own. The time when K-pop was not famous in anywhere outside Asia, thats the time period TVXQ and HOT brought kpop to the world's attention. Picture how much difficulty BTS would've went through to build "international fans" (not korean fans im only talking bout international fans here), multiply that by 100, thats the level of difficulty TvXQ and HOT went through to bring kpop to the world's attention. Even BTS themselves look up to their seniors, so we should respect them and do the same.

"theyre marked by many kpop fans as "the female bts"" - This is the first time ever that I come across this comparison. I don't see any similarities between Blackpink and BTS, except for the fact that their music appeals to western audience.

And I don't think that BTS is the reason for their popularity.

I am an A.R.M.Y and i will not say that BTS and A.R.M.Y is one of the reasons for Blackpink's popularity. I am not a fan of Blackpink but i can see that the popularity they got, is made by themself, they are a great band and have some great music, so please stop saying that one of the reasons for Blackpink's popularity is because of BTS and A.R.M.Y.

I only stan girl groups so BTS has nothing to do with my loving BlackPink. I really think they are doing fine on their own. They don't need any other groups help. Sadly, what interest I initially had in BTS has pretty much been snuffed out by overly aggressive and toxic ARMY's too.

How would you feel if you were an artist and you fan says "I wont listen to your music cuz I hate your fandom!"? Thats exactly what you said about BTS right now. If you were an artist, you too just like BTS or Blackpink wont have any control over fandom's behaviors on internet. Its fine if you dont want to stan BTS or any other group, but dont let "fandom" be the reason you do that. Anyone can dislike anyone, just dislike them for who they are, not for someone else. This is coming from a Blink, Army, Vip, Sone, etc. (multifandom kpopper, I said that just incase you thought I'm siding with ARMYs or something like that). Have a nice day =]

I disagree respectfully. As an ARMY I am proud of BTS and their success all over the world. Undoubtedly they have instigated a massive interest in Kpop (not saying there were no international Kpop fans beforehand, of course there were). But to target a wildly popular group like BlackPink when so many groups and solo artists have been affected is arrogant at the least. This 'Discussion Post' is most likely written to incite defensive responses. And when people get defensive they get aggressive. Please stay humble and support BTS and BlackPink the way they'd want you to. Not like this.

For your information where was BTS when Kpop became even more popular when Psy released Gangnam Style? Oh yeah BTS was still nugu as hell due to just debuting only a month prior.

I couldn't give two 'Bleep's' about BTS but Hyuna is the reason I came to Kop. Back then BTS was still known as the short form for Behind The Scene's. There are a lot of people from outside Korea who came to be fan's before BTS was known outside their little circle of Friends. Why not say 2NE1 are responsible or Twice or GG?

why would twice be responsible? if blackpink is popular for any reason it's because of 2ne1 because YG made them to be the next 2ne1. period.

I think BLACKPINK Group is *much* more a GLAMOUR oriented VISUAL K-pop Group than 2NE1 Group ever was.

2NE1 Group had that more 'edgy badass' vibe happening. Just a viewpoint, others can see it differently. BLACKPINK Group is more 'Fashion Model' appearing. Which 2NE1 Group was not that at all.

I don't. I'm saying a lot of fans have been drawn to KPop by other artists. I don't like 2NE1 either but I like Black Pink. Since Hyuna drew me to KPop, Hyuna is more responsible for my interest in Black Pink and Korean music than any of the groups I mentioned. Without Hyuna I'd be making cracks to my friends about these cookie cutter groups Korea and Japan are turning out. Instead I have developed an interest in Korea's music industry and an appreciation of their artists. Fans of these groups and others are more responsible than the Army's and I don't think they should be takeing responsibility for their success.

I'm a die-hard ARMY, and I can tell everyone that this is stupid. BTS did NOT make Blackpink famous.

Also, can you use, um, I don't know, capital letters and pronunciation?!

Plus, Blackpink is great and no, BTS is not the reason they are famous, okay? And saying that most Blinks are ARMYs doesn't prove really anything. I mean, sure, maybe after getting into BTS you may start to branch out to listen to other bands, but you can say this about any band, artist, etc.

And saying Blackpink is the female BTS is like that stupid thing about how BTS is the "Asian One Direction".

Blackpink is not BTS. BTS is not the reason Blackpink has so many fans. Blackpink deserves all the love that it gets and it's because Blackpink is a good band and not because of BTS.

the female bts lmao. Their swagger and overall image makes them feel like a spiritual successor to 2NE1, who as we all know were around before bts. This is honestly just some power hungry army's not satisfied with BTS's accomplishments alone, they want to claim all other groups accomplishments as well. YG has been adding a western flair and sending his groups over to the west to dip their toe in the water for a almost a decade at this point.

If you were saying "allkpop" is a part of "yg media" or something like that, just wanted to say, YG artist Tablo once made this tweet "Fuck all kpop for being so senseless" so allkpop is hated by majority of korean artists not exactly "yg media".

no clue how you made the connection between allkpop and YG from my comment. YG has used BTS to promote Blackpink many times in their articles, simple as that.
