Yeah, I was wondering how their album sales stack up against other boy groups? They’re not connecting to the general public so I hope at the very least, they have a solid fan base willing to buy albums.
I sometimes wonder how successful they’d be if they tried being more commercial. Sure, it’s nice that jype has given them free rein over their music, but I imagine the smart thing to do would have been making music that’s more accessible, at least for the first few years of their career.
Ooh, good point. I guess I can sort of see Felix and Chan gaining a lot of popularity in Australia, but certainly not to the same extent as Jackson has in China or Bambam in Thailand. From the beginning, I feel like Got7 was primarily known for their foreign line tbh, and ia that skz doesn’t have that to fall back on.
I honestly see their career trajectory being quite similar to NCT’s tbh. As in: very experimental and often polarising music that doesn’t connect easily to anyone who isn’t a fan, more effort to appeal to international (particularly western) audiences due to lukewarm reception in SK, etc etc. but yeah, I hope their album sales improve over time as well.
Yeah, I briefly tried to get into NCT but to no avail. It’s just too confusing trying to keep up with all the members and ever-changing subunits. That being said, I really like Wayv! I’m so happy Ten has finally found a permanent group <3
