In all fairness, the majority of all K-Pop idols pretty much have similar skill sets. They look flawless, they are able to execute difficult choreography and have individual charm. But because they are all equipped with the same talent, it makes it that much more difficult for all of them to stand out.
And it’s not just BTS who have many international fans, a lot of the other idol groups have a substantial amount of fans overseas as well.
But many people often wonder why certain groups, despite their worldwide popularity, never made any global commercial breakthrough. Sure, a lot of people know and heard of them, but they haven’t truly been rewarded as much as they should have been.

It’s very surprising to see that Monsta X isn’t as big as some of the most prominent boy groups such as BTS and EXO by now. The irony with Monsta X is that their fanbase is stronger outside of South Korea but they haven’t been able to fully solidify their presence in the US music scene.
Having visuals that many K-Pop fans usually tend to like while also having three separate units to diversify their activities, SEVENTEEN seems like a K-Pop dream team that should be a lot bigger than they are at the moment.
A lot of their concepts may be a bit complex for an average listener to fully appreciate while their songs somewhat don’t meet the expectations. But their members’ individual activities on K-Dramas and variety program have definitely helped secure their fanbase domestically.
