it's on the chart with the lines and the bars. Their name is written in Hangeul 갓세븐 which is probably why u didn't catch it

a bit confusing to see how GOT7 has less brand value than their fellow labelmate 2PM who haven't release any group material since 2016

SM is putting all their efforts into NCT and yet they are not reaching the top level. Both EXO and SHINee is above them. I understand EXO, but SHINee is getting very less promotions comparatively. No hate to NCT. But don't know how this experiment of SM will turn out. Let's wait and see.

They're in the top ten, so I wouldn't say it's that bad. I think what hinders them a bit is that at first glance the concept and amount members could deter people away. That and NCT constantly experimenting with different sounds can be hit or miss with people.

It isn't that bad for sure. But with SM's history, most of their boy groups and ggs become hits within max 2 years of debut. So I think SM is taking an incredible risk here. But they must be having something in mind hopefully. NCT needs to be incredibly successful, else the members will also earn less as they have to share with these many members.

Completely agree, the fanbase was really small in 2017 and with the recent NCT 2018 the fanbase has gotten considerably larger.


Not to mention, SM has a really bad track record for being biased against their foreign artist when it comes to line distribution, center time, screen time, pay and just overall treatment.

I still will never understand how Got7 is never on this list. Even 2PM and Stray Kids are on the list but Got7 is never...like what?! Their sales and amount of CF's are more than half of these groups.

That is crazy to me. But I guess we've always known that they are more popular outside of Korea.
