if this was 2012 with Gen 2 artists the ratings would be better but K-pop has become so heavily focused on the West in recent years that the Korean general public has absolutely no idea who pretty much the majority of these groups are.

This just doesn't have the same appeal to me as Queendom. Special performances are nice if you're a fan but its just decent.. nothing stands out.
