I don't care if you think if it's Blackpink or BTS (it can't be another group) but it's true that they are paving the way in the west. Right now even rookie groups with just the debut mini album can go to tour in the west like TXT and have it sold out, when before even if you were famous like Wonder Girls it was a very dangerous move to do and things didn't changed after Bigbang tour like how they have change now. We have rookies doing tours in the west in their first year, groups selling more worldwide like how Twice with the last album sold more in the west than before and they aren't doing a mainstream sound for the west and we have 3 groups at the same time going to huge TV shows like BTS, BP and NCT. We just have to compare how things were before BTS and BP were huge and you can see a change not just for them but for all kpop. 2nd gen stans don't come to say how all this is thanks to your faves because of course they helpped but not is all thanks to them.
