    Kpop fans get angry when people say BTS paved the way. They bring up dinosaur era groups and more specifically Psy.

    Let's talk about Psy. He is the only artist apart from BTS to have an RIAA certification and the only artist apart from BTS to have entered US Hot 100 top 10 charts. He might be a one hit wonder but he showed kpop stans what true mainstream worldwide success looks like.

    This is how kpop stans reacted to him. IMG_20191203_112443.jpg

    Yes YOU kpop fans ridiculed him for his success. And today you have the audacity to say Pay paved the way for BTS? Where were you when Psy was having such astronomical success? Were you all Psy fans back in the day that you oh so openly boast about his achievements just to show BTS and Army their "place"? With what right do you all even take his name?

    Now let's talk about your dinosaur era faves and what your role in supporting THEM also was.

    1. BoA's "I'll Eat You Up" flopped in US. What were you all doing at that time? Holed up in your forums ranting?
    2. Wonder Girls toured with Jonas Brothers and ultimately went nowhere. They might have even lost their Korean popularity in the process. What were you all doing instead of supporting them? Weren't you all mad when Sunmi said BTS paved the way? Yeah so where you all when Sunmi needed you?
    3. Girl's Generation came to a late night show with a song no one knew or cared about and the whole rodeo went downhill. Where were YOU? Why didn't you support them back then?
    4. Se7en teamed up with Lil Kim and what happened to it? Nothing.

    So you kpop fans didn't supporting your faves when they tried to expand their sphere, and when someone DID expand you all made fun of him. You did the same with BTS. But it all backfired because times have changed and simply the BTS fandom doesn't give a fuck about you all and your niche mindset.

    You are failed stans. Don't even call yourself stans. You are a multi fan who has no concept of what real stanning is. You are here for your own enjoyment. Go look at the rock band Tool fans to see what real stanning looks like. I don't care if you get angry, you should. You all never wanted "western validation" because you felt some sort of enjoyment in the exclusiveness of this kpop niche bubble. Your rants in the kpop forums amount to nothing. Bunch of keyboard warriors who whine about someone else's faves. You only whine because your ego got hurt. Because your niche expanded and your "little bubble" was snatched.

    You want your faves to succeed. But do you really? You say to Army, "others deserve a chance". I know they do. But you are their fans. It's your job to support them. And you fail in that. Your faves want you to support them but you don't. Streaming free music and hyping them on social media is the work of just a hype man. Spend your money on them to support them. And don't come for Army saying they don't support others. Army belongs to BTS. Army is BTS's fandom. And Armys have time again showed their support for their faves. Their sales speak numbers.

    **I will not entertain your counter opinions. I have already said what I have to say. You all know this is the truth and I dare you all to challenge me. I could care less. Logging out.

    Paved the way is such an outdated line, it needs to get thrown in the dungeon already. Anyways, Psy is King in his own right, first Korean artist to debut high on billboard, could of have gone to #1 but there was Maroon 5. Bts are kings in their own right, and have their fandom to thank for that success. It's pretty silly people fighting over who did it first or whatever, also in a way , kpop wasnt mainstream in the west when boa, seven and wonder girls tried to mske it in the US, Wonder Girls did have some success but unfortunately it fell apart but that was due to JYP. I think it was a bold move for those companies to debut the artist in the US, even if they didnt succeed at least they tried, unfortunately kpop just wasnt revered back then as it is today or looked upon more today than yesterday. But each group is successful in their own right, and that includes today's groups. But your right if you want your group to succeed in the west, you have to support and cant get upset or angry because a group gets successful or attention, it's very obvious they succeeded because of their fans.

    Psy didnt have much to do with what BTS did imo. Most people dont even associate him with modern KPOP. He's remembered as a one hit wonder from Korea in the US.

    you're not wrong
    bts/army antis say "focus on your favs" and we do exactly that but when we do focus on our favs, we obliterate yours

    All they do is whine like some spoiled brats just waiting for things to be given to them on a silver platter. They call armys 12 year-olds, jobless, or whatnot, but who's shelling out cash for their faves and getting results? They tell armys to focus on their faves and yet again, who's getting results? Definitely not them.

    Psy is like Aqua from the 90s and the Venga Boys. Did some massive songs but never taken seriously, no relevance in music markets and long forgotten.
