    Gen 2 lovers show the best you got and prove me wrong,

    Let’s see who is in the Gen 3 corner:

    Twice : destroying cute concept
    Blackpink: destroying girl crush concept
    GFriend destroying innocence concept (created their own concept power innocence)
    Red Velvet (take on all concepts)
    Mamamoo (bringing that jazzy variety)

    Then you got all the others Dreamcatcher, G-IDLE, Momoland, Lovelyz, WJSN, Oh My Girl etc etc

    I don't have to prove anything when you probably don't know most of the 2nd gen ggs music to say this.

    I’m biased towards 3rd gen so I can’t give an unbiased opinion. I just think 3rd gen ggs are better than 2nd gen simply because no 2nd gen gg has managed to gain my attention and keep me interested like the 3rd gen girl groups (music, variety, concept and even visual wise).

    There’s definitely more visual variety, a lot of the GG’s from the past looked kinda similar styling wise

    Any Kara song is better than 90% of the 3rd gen gg music, almost the same for T-ara. Then songs like Genie, Be my baby, I don't care, Alone... Not just that they're better imo, but there was a lot of different concepts, RV is considered concept queens now when in 2nd gen they'd just be one of the groups that change the least their concepts.

    I like Twice, so I'd say that their style of cute concept has been my favorite.

    Glam girl-crush sort of style, 4minute was pretty good. I prefer them to BP, if I had to pick one out of the two.


    Wonder Girls' Why So Lonely is a real bop and a great MV. One of my favorite GG songs ever. But it's released in 2016, fairly recently.

    You know, I don't think it's that much for variety rather than the feels you get after long time not hearing them (certain songs, groups, etc.). I would have answered this thread differently, but I just heard a bunch of really old SNSD songs that were for Japanese promotions and I am damn proud to say that I cried and nothing can go up to the feelings that 2nd gen groups made fans feel.
    This is not for 3rd gen kpop, but in general:
    -You can have as much variety as you want to, but if there isn't emotion in the whole beat that makes you a bit nostalgic, a bit happy, a bit sad and/or a bit of everything, then it's not done correct. Of course most korean music (whether pop or not) is done for more mainstream/commercial aims, but darn it - I am sticking to 2gen even for variety.

    I guess if you think that Gfriend invented the power innocent concept, i think that you don't know that snsd debut with a song call "into the new world " who is a power innocent concept
    and i think you don't know that Sunny hill, f(x) etc... that some groups like this exist and try all the concept

    maybe should you reminds you that BP girl crush concept is nothing compare to 2NE1 girl crush concept etc...........

    but yes, so little knowledge about the 2nd gen and they try to make some comparaison -____-

    In my observation, only Red Velvet can compare to 2nd generation ggs, no other group does except for visuals because they're subjective, but in talent and discography, only Red Velvet is as good as their seniors, no other group compares.
