so several groups have debuted this year, what do y'all think of these debuts?

personally, most of the girl groups that debuted this year are frigging awesome (ie STAYC, Weeekly, etc)

discuss <3

Many good rookies debuted this year and I love Weeekly and StayC but in terms of impact the 2019 rookies esp Itzy and TXT are still unbeaten imo.

Treasure and Aespa were the most hyped rookies this year and while they did great in some metrics they haven’t become the sensations we thought they would right from debut. But they’ll get there. Itzy and TXT were immediate successes, so that’s the kind of contrast you can see between the two years.

Weeekly for sure got me interested.

Aespa i like if i am still not sure about the ai deal . Also it was a 'soft' sm girls debut. They seem to have kinda done this since fx.
first a digital single which does so so. then a solid well received album a few months later.

I think it also has a lot to do with the new charting on melon: it's significantly harder to chart, but once you start charting, a lot of non-fans start checking it out

secret number adding dita was probably one of the smartest decisions made: sea fans' votes are insane

Yeah the Melon chart reform had to do with it as well otherwise I'm sure both Treasure and Aespa would've charted on real time.

Aespa had it both ways imo- obviously they had the most predebut hype and that translated to their international stats- Spotify, Youtube and SNS being great but also a lot of antis which saw them get just 1.7 stars on Melon out of 5.

But from the Korean reactions I'm seeing, a lot of this negative opinion has already started swinging around so as long as they get a solid comeback and mini album, I think they'll have made up a lot of ground.

teaser season was hell literally all the weibo comments on any aespa content was filled with hate but everyone just had amnesia over that period lmao
saw someone tweet that YooJimin_Out hashtag with other hate only to later bias karina lmao

enhypen did ok as well I think, but also got screwed over royally by charting reforms

Yes I keep forgetting about Enhypen though they sold the most lmao, Idk why, feels like they have a dedicated fanbase but not much noise outside of it :wimwim:

I have no worries about Aespa after seeing how RV and NCT both had slow starts lol, SM will keep investing until they are a success and usually they find good producers and end up with great discographies anyway so it's just a matter of time :sanapray:

Are they a permanent group or temporary like a Produce group?

I have no idea who either of those are but I know some Armys thought Nana was a BigHit trainee after the Dynamite singalong video and that was hilarious :wimwim:
