    In addition to sorting out the issue with their male groups having to join the army soon. Then they can promote as normal

    Similar to YG during the peak heatwave of Twice’s popularity, look at BPink now

    That's not strategic.
    By the time BTS hype dies down, EXO will be just as irrelevant. And EXO stood just fine on its own with BTS around.
    I wonder if something bad happened to cause this..

    BTS loves SM artists, so I hope they will interact well.

    BP did amazing on digital but in sales, they sold less than 200k... for a one year hiatus that's good, they sold their album well, but if YG wanted to beat twice like this they failed ://

    um blackpink sold over 200k with a mini album with 4 songs on it. not to mention they are charting extremely well. they broke so many records and set so many new ones with this one comeback.

    they did
    but compared to twice they didn't. thats all it matters to that him. competition and mediaplay of his company brand.

    and SM isnt waiting for BTS
    hes trying to make NCT their priority group, just like SUJU-EXO shift has happend in 2013.
    i just think exols are a bit more loyal so its not working out as they predicted.

    blackpink is better digitally then twice is. physical wise, blackpink has one korean album while twice has many more and has been able to build up a fanbase. so yes twice has better physicals but in terms of achievements, blackpink really was at the same level of twice with this comeback not in their whole careers.
    also yeah, sm really is trying to make nct their main group and it's a bad decision. there's a whole exo just waiting for another comeback, they have probably the strongest fanbase in korea, exols have planned on getting 2m in physical sales (i think dont quote me on it). exo is a cash cow so I don't know why sm is neglecting them.

    As someone who has worked in Marketing, I can tell you this is almost certainly their strategy.
    Think about it. If Adele, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift all had albums being pushed at the same time, it would be a nightmare for record companies to do promotions (who would appear on Jimmy Fallon first? Who would start selling concert tickets first? etc)
    By allowing BTS to dominate the charts for a bit, EXO can wait until the hype of BTS dies down a bit (which will happen eventually. Radio can't play the same few singles forever - and there's only so many concerts and tv appearances they can make). Once BTS goes on a little hiatus to start planning their new album, EXO can jump in.
    It's very strategic, and is used in business all the time.
