    I love this analysis and breakdown of the generations. 2018 seems like a valid year to assign the start of the fourth generation. It just happens to overlap a bit with the third generation.

    Big Hit joined the ranks of the Big 3, now the Big 4, thanks to BTS.

    Is there a 4th generation group that will similarly advance another currently small company into the top tier? In other words, who's going to make it big?

    I'm thinking ATEEZ (KQ Entertainment), and/or (G)I-dle (Cube)

    A more "out there" group might be The Boyz (Cre.ker Entertainment, part of Kakao), in part because their visuals are particularly impressive.

    The Big 4 have:
    1. Big Hit: TXT
    2. JYP: Itzy, Stray Kidz
    3. SM: a new NCT group w/ the three who graduated Dream?
    4. YG: Treasure
    Other 4th generation groups: A.C.E. (Beat Interactive), Everglow (Yuehua Entertainment), ONEUS (RBW)

    Who else is in 4th generation so far?

    I guess (G)I-dle is 4th gen if you consider Stray Kids 4th gen.

    IZ*ONE must be 4th gen then since they debuted in 2018.

    AB6IX came from a small company BrandNew Music but is one of the top-selling rookies of 2019.

    Thanks for the correction.

    LOL I keep thinking of their new building and it’s hard to think of them as no longer one of the top companies.

    I think the groups listed are all pretty valid. 2020 is definitely the start of 4th gen in my eyes

    NO - they have started 2018 / 2019

    so IZ*ONE and (G)I-DLE must be included to 4th gen

    I don't think of SKZ or Idle as 4th gen. Maybe Iz*One if you're pushing it

    Nct isnt 4th generation. The one leading SM into the 4th generation is Smngg and Bg.
    I would say 2018.
    There was a huge shift that year. Especially seen last year.

    I'm not sure how i feel about you calling KQ a small company and DEFINITIVELY don't call Cube a small company.
