    I think it's time to stop this nonsense. Noone else outside of kpop has this kind of specific positions like "lead dancer" or "sub vocal" or "visual". You are either singer, dancer or rapper or play instruments. That's it. There is no need for such dumb hierarchies.

    It is so embarrassing when people start introducing kpop group members as "lead dance, sub vocal and visual". Is there a "top vocal" and why are their kinks public? Why is there someone in the groups who is a "visual", why do they advertise lack of talent?

    It’s time for kpop fans to stop ordering what kpop companies should or should not do

    Lol I always found it charming how each had a "designated role" inside the group

    It's not that deep tbh. It's also just part of kpop that differentiates it from the rest lol

    Sometimes the roles are wrong too. Like the lead dancer being a better dancer than the main dancer.

    A lot of not k-pop stans have difficulties with these positions. especially when they think lead is actually the best in the group in that aspect.top-sub would be a better hierarchy than main-lead imo.

    Sometimes that can happen because that lead improved a lot comparing to the main while the positions kinda remain the same over the years.

    It's honestly annoying how ifans think they are superior for not liking certain things in kpop. It's korean pop for a reason, their culture is quite different from us. Of course there will be things that will not align with our believes.

    Omg yes. I don’t understand this.
    I thought lead and main is the same thing. Someone tell me what JK is considered pls ? I know he’s centre and main vocalist but if he’s centre surely that means he leads the dances mostly too?!

    I liked it, help me to understand new groups

    I just didn't buy TxT's idea that nobody has a position when some members are clearly above others in specific skills

    Yes this is correct. Positions can overlap and not just one member can be one thing. That’s why usually it’s best to not refer to members as a certain position because it gets confusing.

    JK is lead dancer while Jimin and Hobi are main dancers. "lead" in k-pop doesn't really mean actual leading but yeah JK is kinda leading the dance because he is in the center and usually he has the most lines.
