    BTS and TWICE for sure.
    Big bang in Japan too probably.

    maybe BP in SEA. i dont know much about SEA market and how sustainable it is for musicians.

    I guess BTS and Twice would be fine because they have America and Japan respectively. Though they would lose a significant source of their money especially BTS as while they sell real good in america it doesnt equal out to their sales in korea. I would say BTS would also do well on tours. Big Bang also does well in Japan but it might hurt more as they dont sell mega there. SNSD I think would be in the most trouble along with Blackpink because they haven't really established themselves anywhere in a huge way besides korea. Like they have SEA but I dont know how sustainable that would be. SNSD is just an older group and Korea has always been there biggest base, plus idk how popular they are in Japan still at least to make a career out of it.

    i think twice and bts would be able to sustain themselves off their international fan base

    although it would suck for them if their career ended in Korea lmao

    BTS and Twice can survive by selling Japanese albums alone. Bigbang sells extremely well in Japan and China as well, and each member can do solo tours.

    SNSD has held HUGE ASS concerts all over Asia so they'll be fine lol.
    Big Bang has proven that all they really need is Japan lol. They tour there so much and make millions. So them, yes definitely.
    BTS has sold out concerts WORLDWIDE so yes to them too.
    Black Pink/2NE1, I'm not sure.
    TWICE's career in Japan is taking off and breaking a lot of records so they can probably stay there and live as a local GG lol.

    I think BTS would have the most success as a group in the US.
    SNSD has a few members trying to make individually on the American market. They did Madison Square garden, and David Letterman and that's huge but SM didn't promote them in the states enough

    fun fact
    BTS physical sales for Answer (2mil one) are actually more than 50% sold outside Korea so losing kfandom wouldnt hurt "that much".
    BTS sold over 500k in pure sales in America this year . almost 1million in SPS.

    I chose 2ne1 cause even though they werent looking for western validation, there was a lot of talk about them, they were the first kpop group to win mtv iggy award for best new band in the world. Not counting most all members spoke english with bom living in america fow awhile, plus their music is very westernized, their fashion very edgy very much a fashion trend. In the west they would have done really well as a group.

    Would be BTS because their fanbase internationally is huge, be it touring, sales even merch and so on, fandom buying power is legit impressive over there, If we were to remove their SK leg from their current tour wouldn’t make a huge difference actually. They are pretty stable and have a large Japanese fanbase so would be just fine for them. TWICE, Japan alone would be enough. BIG BANG recognition in Asia.

    So I’d go for these three because wouldn’t affect them that much
