Unfortunately, number of attendees and venue size aren’t consequences of quality but only of popularity. In K-pop, popularity and success isn’t synonymous of talent. Just look at Blackpink shows, huge numbers on expensive tickets, but they got on controversies over and over again due to lackluster performances, lack of synchronization, lip synching, lack of energy on stage and laziness. People complained a lot about that, but I think those people just didn’t know them well enough and thought “Hey, these girls are popular, their show is expensive, so they must be good”, but ended disappointed on what they got. They should have done their research before spending hundreds of dollar on a concert. They were paying to see one of the most popular K-pop group, and that’s all they can offer.
