    Music = mostly generic
    career = impressive theyre achieving a lot
    choreo = the worst and best simultaneously, best cause a lot of them do really hard dances but worst because most are not memorable. Nothing like the sorry sorry dance or genie leg dance
    scandal = ion remember any tbh
    visual = prettier girls, blander dudes

    Feels like for me I prefer 2nd Gen GGs but I may or may not prefer 3rd Gen BGs (maybe largely due to Day6?)

    GGs wise 2nd Gen they had more of an identity? There were so many various GGs and competition was stiff back then which in turn make them stand out more. Like competition for the top groups between SNSD/2NE1/Sistar/Wonder Girls/Kara/T-ara were stiff, and even groups who may not have the overall popularity of those higher tier groups like 4Minute/miss A/Secret/AOA/EXID they all had their really big shining moments that made them memorable as well. There are so many standouts to listen to. Concepts were also more varied. Sexy/Girl Crush/Retro/Cute you want it we have it. 3rd Gen GGs seem more saturated among the top (Twice/BP/RV/Mamamoo/Gfriend), that a lot of mid to lower tier GGs do not have that level of visibility and hence it seems like the overall sound of 3rd Gen GG are less varied.

    For BGs, maybe I can't really say much because I listen to a lot more Day6 than other 3rd Gen BGs. Maybe I wasn't really into the whole dancing thing for BGs all this while? I grow to really like Day6 music because it is very unlike the typical BG sound. If there is 1 group that I can safely say has no bad songs it would be Day6. Heck the reddit voted Day6 song that ranked last (Habits) is such a good song, that itself tells you something. Day6 aside I kinda got a bit bored with other 3rd Gen BGs and still tend to listen to GGs more

    2nd Gen overall though, had a larger string of iconic hits and at least it isn't centered around the top few groups which makes KPOP look so much more varied and interesting

    Gen3 is amazing! Like Gen2, they've taken Kpop to new heights! They're setting a tough standard for Gen4. But I'm sure Gen4 will also amaze us by raising Kpop to heights that we can't imagine yet. We're in for some exciting times in the years ahead.

    Variety show guestings are kinda awkward and boring. Interaction with fellow idols are quite limited and stiff. Music wise I still prefer the 2nd gens because there's a variety in concepts. Music is much diverse in entirety. Voices are more powerful and soulful. Nowadays (3rd and 4th) , almost all follow the same trend, same style, too much autotune and voice enhancers.

    A step up from the past, i feel like there is more diversity in music and concepts nowadays. Choreo has been improving and overall i think 3rd gen groups are a bit better at performing. Also the makeup and styling is wayyy better, no longer just thick eyeliner and anime haircuts. The globalization of kpop is a double edged sword but I think it brings more good then bad.
