can we stop this narrative ? i have seen this kind of narrative everywhere on twitter due to skz and day6 frequent comeback & itzy 14 million budget . just because itzy didnt chart as well as twice and skz&day6 didnt sell as much as got7 make them not worth the investment A lot of people seem to forget that a group doesn’t necessarily exist just to be as popular and as big a seller as their labelmates...in the case of The Big 3, they are trying to cover as much market ground as possible and capture every audience and demographic that they can across all the groups they debut. It’s the same principle with f(x) and the way SM promoted them—people remark that they never managed to be as enormously successful as SNSD, but that’s not why SM debuted them. The point of f(x) was to capture all the potential fans that would never be interested in SNSD’s concepts, and that way the company would corner as much of the market as possible.Same concept can be applied with ITZY&Twice and Day6&GOT7 (im not familiar with SKZ so i cant tell if they are different from got7) Another exmple,there is always going to be a certain amount of fans who aren’t interested in traditional idol groups and want idol bands instead. DAY6 is around so those people give their money to JYP, rather than someone else. That alone is a reason for them to exist and be invested in.Day6 are capturing a part of the market that might not be captured by their other groups. Plus they compose their own music, so they probably can save abit on the music production side. JYP knows which of their artists are worth investing money into. There is plenty of evidence showing that kpop companies will disband a group without hesitation if the interest isn’t there. DAY6 , Stray Kidz and ITZY have had regular comebacks since debut without any lengthy hiatus. So they must be doing something right.
