Big 3 privilege is real, but in a different way than people think. Yes, it doesn’t automatically mean they’ll be wildly successful and it doesn’t automatically mean they’ll be promoted well. But people will still know who they are just from the fact that they’re from a bigger company. Even if they don’t have a comeback for a long time they’ll won’t fade from obscurity and become irrelevant. Even that much is more of a ‘privilege’ than a lot of others have.
Honestly out of all the big JYP is the only one to make good lightsticks. SM doesn’t even give their ggs lightsticks and makes them all in minecraft, and YG’s are passing at best. Usually only the non-Big 3 companies make better lightsticks, and JYP at least gives one of his ggs a lightstick. I could go on about the lightsticks but we’d be here all month. It just bugs me.
I recently got told that my opinions of the BIG 3 companies is completely wrong and I fail to understand how my opinion can be wrong? For me, JYP is a company that produces more well-rounded performers, YG focuses on their rappers, and SM on their vocalists (visuals too *cough*). I never say which is “better” or that they don’t have talent in other departments or whatever, yet people still find something wrong with me believing in these broader generalisations. Why can’t I? I’m not wrong, am I?
I honestly think that JYP dropping members of Stray Kids and then bringing them back was one of the cruelest things I’ve ever seen a Kpop CEO do. It’s already crushing to be dropped but him doing it in such a public and embarrassing way was disgusting. There were better ways to promote a group and their closeness than to screw with members feelings.
If the rumours about Produce 48 are true, then both JYP and SM will be debuting new girl groups soon, and I’m honestly so excited. For SM, I’m assuming some of the more well-known SM Rookies will be in it, but I’m excited either way! And, for JYP, I’m curious as to whether the girls’ group that was featured on the first episode of Stray Kids will be the ones debuting, or if there will be changes to the line up. I’m still hoping for Somi to debut, but the girl group shown was amazing, I admit!
Can anyone explain why JYPE don’t put their group’s songs in Spotify? It’s just so annoying and we either get the Japanese version (which ruins the song) or just no song at all. If they want the groups to get popular, put the dang songs on Spotify. JYPE needs to fix this asap.
YG gets most of the hate for not promoting their artists very well but all of the big three sucks when it comes to promotions. YG is the most obvious with the dungeon and all. SM decides it’s a great idea to promote all their idols at the same time, lowering their chances of getting a trophy and JYP is like a child with a new toy. He will constantly promote a group until a newer and shinier one comes along then chucks the other group away.
Big three privilege is not real. When you audition for SM, JYP OR YG, you’re against the best in the country, they have lines of people wanting to audition and get into the company. If someone gets into the big three, they really must be talented, because in those companies you’re always just a number, easily replaceable. The training is also really hard in those companies, they starve you in sm, you’re overworked in JYP (look at twice) and you don’t know if you’ll ever debut in yg
