    a big part of nugu girl groups have been doing this concept and it has never had any strong staying power. The only recent succes besides G-friend is Oh My Girl which peaked at #2 on MelOn but fell out extremely quick.
    I dunno what to call this concept but i'll call it ''dream girls'' concept.

    Its extremely beautiful but the songs are just so boring and lacking any hook to keep me and also the GP interested. G-friend who has been literally been doing this since debut haven't been able to make the same impact as they did before and having their songs fall out of the top 10 quite fast (they still strong just not as strong as their competitors)

    U have WJSN, Gfriend, Oh My Girl, Lovelyz, April fromis_9 GWSN (Musically not the same genre but same concept, and a very very very basic house beat they stole from soundcloud or something) and many other GG's trying this concept and failing every every time. It's like these entertainment labels are so blind to what actually attracts an audience.

    What happened to G-friend is a one time thing and they have been falling and falling compared to their main competitors (RV, BP, Twice, Momoland etc.). If we look at recent break out hits, they all have something unique but this overdone concept realy needs to stop ASAP

    So for you the " dream girls" concept is overdone but not the cute and girlcrush concept

    Yes if you think so

    To be completely honest just about ALL the concepts have been overused at this point... One just falls out of fashion while other takes over and vice versa. Currently the girl crush seems to be growing...

    But using a cliché isn't a bad thing if you do it right.

    I really like the "dream girls" (or I call it elegant) concept. I respect your opinion tho~

    Might not be successful internationally but in Korea it can bring a lot just if you have good song ,but besides that without big fandom or good song ur gonna flop anyway so it's not problem about concept it's about those two

    the only difference is that all the "main competitors " do cute or girl crush concept
    but besides them can you mention another mid gg who do girl crush or cute , there is no other one, because all the mid gg do dream girls concept
    and just so you know even Twice did " dream girls " concept with Signal
    but you didn't count them in the dream girls group
    Fromis_9 have make only one song with this concept
    April too with april story

    at the end even if they do the dream girls concept, this type of concept always seems more fresh than the cute or girl crush concept who seems repetitive

    Everyone has a different taste, you may not like it and you can find it boring but it doesn't mean it's bad, although internationaly it don't sell well

    then explain me what is your definition of " dream girls" since you put Fromis_9 as a dream girl concept , while their most " dream girls " concept was DKDK with the big cat and the magic
    like Twice with signal with the alien and their powers

    The market right now is terrible to break into regardless because of how many groups in the public eye are bringing their own thing, there just isn't much room to bring something fresh to the public and if its not fresh adding something new to the selection of top groups why should I listen to them over the top group already doing that concept?

    I understand the concept you're describing. I don't agree that all of those groups are just blindly following it though.

    Regardless this style of music is incredible when done right. Oh My Girl is a top 3 girl group in terms of quality across title tracks and b-sides. They own the concept and nobody does it better than them.

    I would much rather have groups doing something closer to this concept than the standard girl crush sound we have today centered around EDM and drops. Now THAT concept is boring.

    Any concept doesn't work until well done. A cheaply done girlcrush concept won't do much neither will a cheaply done cute one. It depends on the quality more than the concept itself. And if talking about korean charts, gp could care less about any concept, they are more about music.

    It's the music itself more than the video and stuff like that. They're talking about girl group music with a lot of strings in the instrumental, soft, ethereal vocal vibes, moderate progression throughout the song.

    I agree with you though that fromis are not doing this concept.

    Girl crush is also overdone but it still works, anyway groups like Lovelyz are always gonna use that concept because it represents their sound and what they are as group,
    BTW how is ONG doing on the charts, i need to know.
