It seems boy groups are struggling because fans/interest are being absorbed by BTS/WannaOne/EXO

    This in addition to the old school boy groups (Big Bang, TVXQ, SJ, SHINee) and even the old old ones like H.O.T. and Sechkies.

    These few top groups are sponging up all the fangirls, leaving relatively little even for NCT, let alone Stray Kids. There was never another time in kpop were upstart boy groups had to face 3 generations worth of tough competitors.

    I think most Kpop fandoms in Korea aren't into multi-stanning like i-fans do.

    Maybe not when it comes to concerts and fan meetings but they still stream normally and buy albums normally. Which is the same as most multi-stanning international fans.

    Hmm idk, based on twitter it seems like most of my Stay mutuals are also fans of BTS, exo, NCT, Got7 etc.

    Anyway Stray Kids are babies. They debuted in March. Why do I keep seeing threads putting them with NCT? I feel like Stray Kids are part of the next gen, anyway. Give it time.

    Old boy groups decline and new boy groups start rising up. It's a cycle, what's new? Big Bang, Super Junior, SHINee and TVXQ did that to the generation before them too, the next wave of boy groups will do it to BTS and Exo...

    No one can be on the top forever, everyone will be exceeded by the next generation eventually.

    tbh the reverse happened for me like the less popular a group is the more i want to follow them and find out about them. I switched from bts ult-ing to being a full nctzen and I have never looked back lmao like im a pretty new fan and imo its much more fun to follow a group from being rookies than to latch onto a bigger already accomplished group iDK MAN stan clc
