i hate what kpop has become. people buy albums without knowing if the music is good or not just because they like a label.

this is great news for Lightsum of course, but nowadays there seems to be more label stans than group stans...or music stans. Which is a shame coz it just means that labels learn that they dont have to produce good music since their fans will buy albums anyway
