I'm sorry but what? Imagine saying that fanboys were the reason for GG's high digitals. I mean any big group has hardcore fans that will stream and buy their products, it just sounds like people are trying to downplay the success of those top selling BG groups whilst also shading female fans. How about they sell a lot and are popular because they have lots of songs that people enjoy and connect with, memorable choreo, relatable personalities, great stage presence and powerful live performances (all backed by a company that knows what it's doing)? Why bring the gender of their fans into this? GG have hardcore fans too, I'm sure Twice has a lot. And didn't SNSD have a lot of hardcore female fans too? These loyal fans are usually earned through consistency. If I like the vast majority of the songs on an album, I will buy it. If my bias groups were all girls and had the same quality output, I would still support them.
