The only group from DSP ent that i know are SS501 and KARA and i know both of them a big . it is bcause the two group that make DSP ent can be qualified as the big3 ? and how can SM ent replace them ? KARA is never bigger than SNSD but i know that SS501 is bigger than Suju and the rival of TVXQ

    it's BIG 2 back then SM and DSP

    Sechskies vs H.O.T = H.O.T

    FinKL vs S.E.S = FinKL

    sadly, they can't maintain their success.

    DSP never was part of Big 3.
    And JYP was never out of Big 3.

    It's just assumption, delution and perception by kpop fans.
    Similar to YG is no longer part of Big 3....

    The term Big 2 never exist.

    DSP was big before JYP Ent was doing anything remotely successful under his own label, g.o.d was under SidusHQ until 2004. They were only in JYP from 2004-2006, they made their 2014 and 2019 comebacks under their original agency SidusHQ as well.

    The members of god were split between the 2 companies with Sidus owning the name, their entire scenario was a big fuck up and both JYP and Sidus mismanaged them in that regard, JYP was the one that benefited more of them though

    KARA and FinKL. The queens of Japan were from DSP ent. so, of course, they were reigning.... now? Not so much especially with APRIL flopping and with KARD being their only gateway to still being relevant...

    Yeah, I think it was because JYP needed a big company to manage them since his company was really small. SidusHQ is still a massive company to this day, they are most likely one of the reasons Cube did not go bankrupt when they were having all those struggles a few years ago.

    Pretty sure April is more popular in Korea than Kard.

    Well it literally was DSP vs SM during the 90s and then they followed up in the 2000s with Lee Hyori solo debut which was a massive success and then debuted Kara/SS501. And even had small success with another GG After Kara, Rainbow. Sadly they fell off big time after too much emphasis on Kara and ultimately screwing them over.

    SM was DSP’s rival at that time.
    S.E.S vs Fin.K.L and TVXQ vs SS501
