You're right, they weren't. I know Big Bang, PSY, 2NE1, correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the wonder girls came also. I'm not saying they were the first ever act to come to America. I'm just pointing out that they were the first act to be consistently successful in America. PSY blew up but essentially became a one hit wonder in America (he's still very popular in korea) and BTS was the first to have sold out stadium tours in the US. So essentially, they didn't open the gate but they made it wider so that other groups could thrive here too. You now see rookie groups going on US tours when just a few years ago, that was completely unheard of. idk why're youre so pressed about these alleged "kpop stans"? Unless you're talking about kids on the internet, who believe their fave is the be all end all, then you're really just making stuff up to push your own agenda. And what's wrong with hyping your faves? The people you've mentioned, Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey (names you've managed to all misspell), had began their careers around the 1980s-90s. How is it fair to compare a less than 10 year old group to someone who's been in the business for close to 30 years? BTS didn't just luck out, they have the numbers to back themselves up. Here you can see a time lapse of top 15 gaon total sales chart from 2010-2019. They've been climbing the charts since 2015 and was dominating it by 2017. Monsta X didn't even enter the top 15 until the end of 2018.
My comment is kind of off topic but I wanted to know what you guys think. Recently, BTS member Jungkook went to Ariana's concert and she uploaded a picture of them together. So a lot of jokes were thrown around on twitter about how people photoshop bts members with so many girls, everyone legit thought it was fake, but now the more that I look at the picture, I can't help but notice things that seem off?
Like how Jungkook's hand casts a shadow but his hat over Ariana's head doesn't have a shadow, jungkook's arm that's close to her body seems feathered off, the space between them that's supposed to be the wall is just pitch black, and people were saying she never wore this outfit during her concert, she only wore it to coachella. And the weirdest thing to me is that if this is just an edit, why would she post it to her instagram and make it her phone background?
I feel like the main problem with these new "looks" is that Rin continuously goes overboard and thinks every part of their face should be covered with some type of pigment and it's just too much. Like usually when you have a very dramatic eye look that brings in a lot of attention, you want everything else to be a bit more muted but ron looks like they're a toddler experimenting with the makeup palette they got for christmas
I completely get that from an outsider's point of view that armys commenting on sherliza's stuff seems hateful and insecurity driven (which it is) but can we not lump all armys together? especially since it's a huge fanbase and youre seeing a handful of toxic ones that dont represent the majority. most that ive seen on twitter don't even pay attention to her. a lot of the hate seems justified (people reasonably disliking her, not those who go on jealous hateful rants) because what happens is a short clip from one of her videos will be spread around and people will cancel her from the get-go. looking from their pov, they see a clip of her accusing BTS of being colorist for putting on sun screen, so of course they're gonna see her as being dramatic and clout chasing. a more recent clip is her telling armys to "get a fucking job" for streaming BTS' new music video, when all fans do it, not just armys. she calls them childish and 14 years old just for tweets encouraging others to stream. streaming is done to increase the views of the music video so it breaks records, but most of all gets on trending and attracts the attention of others leading to more fans and more press, furthering their career. it's a small thing for me to get pressed about, i know, but don't say armys are the worst when sherliza goes out of her way to talk shit and give an "unpopular opinion".
So your twitter followers and youtube subscribers are no longer allowed to criticize you if they don't have their face, home address, and social security shown? just say you don't care about anyone but yourself and leave lmao
