Netizens Discuss The 3 MAIN Reasons BTOB “FAILED” As A K-Pop Group

Netizens discuss the reasons group BTOB isn’t a successful group in the K-pop industry.

Although some groups have many fans in K-pop, there are groups that never reach the success of groups like BIG BANG and EXO. Is there a group that ultimately failed in the K-pop industry?

Originally posted on Pann, netizens discuss the reasons why BTOB as a group ultimately failed.

Titled “It Is Correct BTOB Failed,” here is the direct translation of the post and comments below.

“There is only two options of groups: fail or success.

But BTOB as a group failed so lets just admit that.

Before CLC made their debut from Cube, BTOB was number one in the category of failed groups.

Lets look at the reasons why they failed.

1. Weak fandom.

They are a likable group but people don’t necessarily search them or look at their music.

2. Digital and album sales.

Due to their weak fandom, this is a given.

Although many of their fans love it when they make top 10, they exit the charts within 2 or 3 months.

3. Rankings in music programs.

Although they are on their 4th year, they’ve only won once in ‘Show Champion’ which is a cable program. They have worse rankings than their junior groups.

And you know that the agency pushes for Sungjae right?

He failed in many programs before but has recently seen light.

I will think that people in denial are going to post comments claiming they are successful in order to make themselves feel better.

I’m not trying to diss BTOB but lets all admit the truth.
