    In terms of international popularity, they were forces to be reckoned with back in 2014/5.

    I don't know about you guys,but Ive always found both groups entertaining. All I kept hearing about was V and jackson... and lol that still hasnt changed.

    Its just that a lot of non fans complained about the inconsistency of Got7 discography being the main reason why they didnt stan them.

    What do you all think?

    also pls dont come at me for inciting fanwars, its not that deep.

    I love both groups. I think GOT7 actually has a large fan base, just not internationally. I don't know, I really like GOT7's music soo yeahh.

    They are more popular now than they were in 2014/15, stuff like their sales have been going up each comeback.

    I think Got7 are hilarious. The few times I've seen them on varieties or interviews they were super entertaining. I'm kinda sad that I only like 2 of their songs.

    Decent songs are not necessary to get as big as BTS though, a spamming fanbase was what put them there first. But I guess a couple of failed comebacks earned them the label of flopping group. However, they were winning Best Group Internationally or something like that just two years ago. So I dont know whether it was people not giving them the attention or just not feeling their comebacks.

    One thing is for sure, once a foreign group breaks into the US market the way BTS has it is not the same for all the groups in said genre, so I doubt they would be as big as BTS now, if they had decent songs.

    Also when a group is making the more noise, it is easy to think the rest are flopping, but it is not truth most of the time.

    GOT7's discography is one of the biggest tragedies in Kpop :( If You Do and Just Right were THOSE songs and even though I personally liked Fly, Never Ever, and Hard Carry, it seemed like the Flight Log series is what made a lot of fans drop them for BTS.

    I think their fanbase is still pretty strong and growing (?) but I honestly have doubts that they would be "as successful as BTS" even if they released better music than BTS themselves.

    lol I really didn't know what else to say, since I like their music. I don't think their fans are into the whole streaming thing and everything else. I think that makes a huge difference.

    I agree. I loved Fly and Hard Carry (although lots of people don't) but Never Ever took me a while to get used to so I can kind of see why.

    If You Do is one of my favourite kpop songs though. It never fails to get stuck in my head.

    Maybe not on number 2 but in the top 5, I think. Still there is EXO, whose latest comebacks may seem as a decline in their quality but they are still too strong to overthrow.

    And yes, these groups nobody seem to care about are doing excellent it is just that not everything they do becomes news nor fans are going around showing them off to ask other fandoms´ respect or whatever .

    I will be honest, I didn't succeed at the first attempt to penetrate GOT7. Just the early songs, except for "If you do," I didn't like at all. But even on the mini-album with "If you do" all the other songs seemed awful to me. The second attempt happened because of my sympathy for BamBam and Jackson, I listened to all their albums and found 2016-2017 excellent period in their discography.
    I cannot judge whether GOT7 could have become as huge as BTS, no one knows) But I know that JYPE is quite economical in promoting groups, at least I see it that way. With minimal investment they try to squeeze the maximum, they are too slow, they don't follow the trends very well. Probably, BH was easier to focus on the promotion of BTS, they have, in fact, some were until recently. And clearly set a goal to penetrate the American market.
    GOT7's comeback in 2 weeks, and we, besides the poster, have no information about the new album. But there is information about the world tour. Seriously?

    Sorry but how do you judge the quality of music???
    Just because someone doesn't like a song doesn't make it bad...

    I think Got7 has really good songs or I really like them as well the boys personalities. They are talented, humble, hardworking nice guys and honestly i think they are a big group, but I don't understand why they don't have a bigger fanbase, but i don't think that have something to do with their music... I personally think that a lot of international fan only like BTS and don't give chances to other groups.

    I think their songs are not memorable in their albums ,and their title tracks are not as catchy as other big groups..
    But they have the best personalities

    People in the west really like the "underdog" story BTS have, in their case it's true story. It's really hard for groups from big companies to sell story that they "have no money, and started from 0" but they try really HARD. Ok that said, Got7 have funny members with nice personalities, some of their song are good, some are nothing special. If they had better songs they could be bigger, but not BTS big, we're talking about JYP here.
