FESTA

There's no doubt that BTS's success has surprised many people all over the world.

The idea of a K-Pop idol group performing for the US's biggest music events and TV shows seemed only a mere daydream in the past.  The same could have been said in terms of collaborating with some of the most sought-after producers in the US market.

BTS has done exactly all of the mentioned above and even set records while doing it as well.

Universal Music Japan CEO Fujikura Naoshi has recently stated "I saw the success BTS had and thought to myself that there was no doubt that a Japanese idol group could do exactly the same."

South Korean fans however responded by saying "It's great that Japanese idols are passionate and have a goal. But they shouldn't say it if they don't have the skills." A group by the name of King & Prince, a combination of groups Mr. King and Prince, were the subject of the dialogues.

Does King & Prince have what it takes to reach BTS's level of superstardom?

Um it's good to work hard and have faith but i really doubt it. BTS' success is so widespread and intense that it would be hard for even a kpop or western group to reach the level they are currently at. Lets not even mention the conceptual differences between jpop and kpop. Kpop has a better grasp on what is popular nowadays and changes accordingly. Yet jpop is still catching up (king qnd prince's concept is REALLY old looking lol). But i applaud their commitment to their goal. (Also the hallyu wave in the wider world extends beyond kpop to… Read more »

I don't have anything against the Japanese but they have a long way to go if they want to get any where near BTS.

Этот концепт устарел ещё Бог знает когда! Они похожи на корейскую группу ss501, но блин, реально с голосами у них какая-то проблема. БТС им никогда не догнать! Если они хотят сделать похожую группу, то подход должен быть серьёзным и всами парни работать должны над всем...

no. The main difference between kpop and jpop is that most jpop has a very small demographic. Especially boy groups- their music is either very 'sweet-esque' like above, which is not very popular anywhere but japan, or is heavily rock. Japan's idols are not as trained so their talents are not ''balanced''. Korea just has a bigger grasp and understanding at what is popular in comparison to Japan. BTS is dominating the world because they have musical versatility and all dance, accompanied with an amazing rap line. Their personalities are great too. Their type of popularity cannot be achieved unless… Read more »
