  • BTS AKA Bagtan Boys is a 7 member group that debuted in 2013 under the management of Big Hit Entertainment.

Fans play a critical role in the success of idols.

They are in charge of organizing support campaigns for K-Pop groups through social media.

The number of reproductions on Spotify, purchase of physical albums and YouTube views are the responsibility not only of the promotional campaigns that entertainment companies put on but also of the fandom's members, counted by hundreds of millions around the world.

BTS has something that sets it apart from all K-Pop groups.

RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook have a massive "army" outside and inside Asia.

Blackpink is the girl group that sounds the most in the western world and the Blinks are also very strong, but despite this they do not reach the strength that the ONCE have in the Asian continent.

This is why the singers of “Life Goes On” and the singers of “Cry For Me” share the title of leaders of the third generation of K-Pop.

It is quite a surprise to learn that the most successful female representatives of the genre are Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu and not the singers of “Kill This Love”.

Blackpink vs. Twice.

This is because when you take into account the number of albums sold, the awards and accolades, Twice beats Blackpink by far.

In fact, the JYP girls have an estimated net worth of $3 million above Lisa, Jisoo, Rosé, and Jennie, at $35 million.

On the other hand, we have the male representatives of the genre, BTS who wins but very tight to the boys of EXO.

In terms of awards won, BTS has 325, a far cry from EXO's record of 155.

Twice's girls boast 107 accolades well above Blackpink's 62.

It is because of all this that we can conclude that despite popular belief, the most successful of the third generation of the K-Pop musical phenomenon are BTS and Twice.
