    I mostly see blinks and armys talking about how BTS and BP are World Groups ...and Im just like
    [​IMG]

    First of all lets make this clear, no Korean group dominates a country ... the only korean group that is actually popular outside of their country is TWICE since they have japanese sales that compete with the big japanese girl groups. No other group is actually big outside of korea.

    Even in USA (the country that people believe counts as international), BTS and BP are nothing ...

    Just look at the sales of their "US debut" ...its tragic and even with the help of a popular artists like Desiigner the song did poorly. In the US were popular singers and groups are getting more then 3m+ downloads thats nothing.

    Also BP are just having popularity in Korea right now thanks to their long hiatus they still dont have anything else to prove they are big outside of Korea ... so why try to call them somethign that they even arent? Also people are forgetting about the actual big groups like Little Mix and 5H (eventho they are on decline), and also many people tend to forget that at least in the US being a group is not popular at all, soloists tend to do way better than groups just a few groups can actually survive.

    Just before all of you start overhyping your faves and make it seem like they are worldwide ... get your facts straight. Youtube views isnt a thing to measure success especially on a culture that likes to stream.

    Facts have been served

    OP I just wanna ask you since you consider Twice to be a worldwide group due to their Japanese sales why aren’t you considering BTS the same considering the same sales if not higher? Hmmm and also correct if I’m wrong but which pop American act TODAY is selling 100k pure album sales? What makes excludes BTS from being a worldwide group? You’d think charting on the music music makers main chart was the criteria itself

    Im not saying that TWICE is a worldwide group? When have I said it? They are a japanese and Korean group
    Did they sell 100k? I mean a lot of soloist sell more than that and by a lot. But there is no other relevant boy group at the moment since the death of one direction I think
