2020 is a turbulent year for the world when the pandemic is still raging. The Kpop entertainment industry is no exception, as fans are still waiting for the epidemic to pass so they can see their idol series shine even more. Therefore, entering 2021, everyone is extremely hopeful for a prosperous year globally in general and Kpop music in particular.
Fans are looking forward to a prosperous 2021 year for idols
Recently, Kpop idols participated in a survey, voting for the most expected names in 2021. This poll makes fans extremely interested, because everyone wants to know that In the eyes of career idols, who will be the most expected name to have a boom in the coming year?
List of the most anticipated groups in 2021 voted by idols:
3. Stray Kids
6. TXT, TREASURE
7. ITZY, NCT, The Boyz
8. LOONA, Cravity
Thus, the idols voted BTS as the most expected name in 2021. Ranked No. 2 are the aespa “dinosaur rookie” girls from SM Entertainment. The 4th gen “chicken battle” of major companies are present such as Stray Kids and ITZY of JYP Entertainment, ENHYPEN and TXT (Big Hit Entertainment), TREASURE (YG Entertainment). In addition, idol groups from small and mid-range companies such as LOONA, Cravity or The Boyz are expected to make a big deal after the effects they have built up during the past time.
BTS was voted by idols as the most expected name in 2021aespa ranked 2nd after BTS
ITZY, Stray Kids, … 4th gen representatives from companies were present
Besides the gen 4 names, SEVENTEEN and NCT are also two gen 3 names appearing in the chart. These are both boygroups with slow but steady steps in the Kpop market. Not so explosive as the top idol groups, but SEVENTEEN and NCT have a strong and loyal fandom, so the album sales are always at million copies, bringing in huge profits and being “golden eggs” of the company.SEVENTEEN …
… and NCT are 3rd gen representatives with a slow but steady step on their career path
Knet has had mixed reactions on this chart:
1. BTS !!!
2. Looking at this chart is enough to understand how difficult it is to be able to withstand the idols from a mid-range company.
3. Aespa !!!
4. I’m really curious, why can’t I see BLACKPINK?
5. Is BTS the rookie? Amazing!
6. TREASURE !!!
7. See, other idols are also looking forward to aespa.
8. It’s a bit sad because of the lack of GFRIEND, TWICE, BLACKPINK, MAMAMOO and Red Velvet, all of them are legendary 3rd gen girl groups.
9. ENHYPEN !!!
10. The Boyz fighting!
As can be seen, Knet gives a lot of encouragement to idols, but also wonders why BLACKPINK , TWICE , MAMAMOO , or Red Velvet do not have expectations from idols in the industry. The reason why these top girlgroups are not expected much?
Why is BLACKPINK absent?
In fact, this is quite easy to explain, because BLACKPINK, TWICE or other popular girlgriups are all at the peak of their careers. This means that each of their comeback productions have a certain guarantee of success, as well as define the group’s style and are no longer too unpredictable. So it is understandable that the idols in the industry do not expect too much of these seniors.
To put it simply … any song that doesn’t hit, if not a big hit, is a hit just because of the fandom power and the quality of music has been confirmed! That’s why industry idols pay more attention to rookies (rookies) than top seniors.Red Velvet …
… BLACKPINK, TWICE or other top girlgroup all have certain positions, success has been guaranteed, so it is no longer surprising that every comeback
But understanding this principle, the audience can also understand how amazing BTS is! The success and position of BTS today is no longer need to be discussed. The global boygroup is also the idol of the type that hits that song, not a big hit is a medium hit. But what makes both seniors and juniors in the profession respect the group is the unpredictable change of style.
The unpredictable change of style helps BTS’s reputation increase day by day, but there is no sign of decrease!
The audience can see a bit of Pop Funk in Boy With Luv , a little bit of parade in ON , a little disco in Dynamite , or back to Pop Ballad in Life Goes On , … BTS is not afraid to try themselves with a new style , regardless of the test can not be too pleasing to the listener’s performance.
That is the reason why BTS’s attraction not only comes from the melancholy performance skills, the beauty of the male beauty but from the music of the group. Now I understand why BTS is at the peak of fame, but BTS is still loved and enthusiastically expected by global fans as well as brothers and sisters in the profession!
