    I think some groups can grab public attention but I don't think it will ever be "mainstream".

    No,not anytime soon.

    Asking if k-pop will ever be taken seriously is the same as asking if the tabloids are ever gonna stop making fun of western celebrities..it's just not happening lel

    Nah Kpop will never be mainstream because it's primarily in Korean. Artists that sing songs in English have higher chances

    What makes you think KPOP can become mainstream, when Latin isn't even that mainstream

    Because we're gradually seeing Western pop artists / celebrities supporting and showing interest in Kpop

    Mumble rap is a joke and "easy to hate on" too but it became a thing

    No. As long as people are racist and homophobic here, it doesn't stand a chance

    H.O.T got their MTV Korea award in some cheap, obscure area during the 1999 VMA while all the American stars were at the actual event.
    Sorry, it's not happening.

    And no, Kpop will never be mainstream.

    I'm sure it'll be like anime : a genre everyone knows but not everyone is into. Mostly fanbase driven.
    ( and where only 2-3 groups are actually known by the GP : right now its basically BTS >>>>>>>>>>>> BP >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> the rest )
