    You know I've realised something about myself, I really like BTS but I'm slightly salty about their success. It's not because they aren't talented or deserve it, it's because I've not been as much into their recent stuff but seen their success rocket.

    So I can admit - I'm slightly salty about their success... can you admit it also to this secret poll

    I'm not salty, lol. Good for them. Yea, it's surprising that they exploded in popularity like they did, but there's no reason to be salty. Sure, they're not my favorite group, but I'm really happy someone from the K-Pop world has global success.

    HOWEVER, I do notice a decline in the quality of their songs since they've entered the global stage. So, it seems writers and producers feel they don't have to try as hard to maintain an audience with quality. This is the part I'm salty about because quality is on the decline.

    I only Stan SHINee and they are way past their prime so there's literally no reason for me to be salty about BTS.

    The only thing I'm salty about is how koreans raise them on to the pedestal of national pride because of their western validation and not because their music tops chart for months or makes a huge impact like thr other top groups

    honestly same
    when i was really into them they weren’t doing as well but now that they are doing really well and are everywhere im not so hyped about the music they are putting out...
    its also annoying because it kind of adds fire to the (few but very vocal) bts supremacist armies who wont give anyone else credit for anything and demmand that everyone thanks bts
    AND bts have a very specific “sound” that is kind of different to a lot of other kpop. if people hear it and dont like it, they dont give the rest of the genre a chance. its a damn shame theres only one major globally popular group. no one group should represent kpop because kpop is so musically diverse.

    THAT SAID i actually do LIKE bts and i dont hate armies so please dont twist what i’m trying to say...

    I'm wondering if they feel a pressure to go a different way due to global success? I doubt if they are complacent too much is at stake

    Yeah that's understandable, but it's fair enough to take pride in a hugely successful export

    Someday, if I ever get sick of GGs. I like Vromance but I've only heard two of their songs and a really creepy cover of Red Flavor.

    Not really. I used to stan them back in the day when they were close to nothing. I've pretty much watched them grow. Even though I've long since dropped them,seeing them go on these big playforms kinda makes the uwu jump out in my cold dead heart LOL

    Yeah seriously how can anyone dismiss all boy groups?

    This is a damn interesting point, could people not into BTS's sound then give K-POP a miss or do BTS carrying the torch for K-Pop globally drag more people in? I've always thought it was the latter, music is so diverse in any country I doubt if anyone would think BTS are the only style.
