i don't know about all sacrifices being for them.I completely agree with you regarding what happened to EXO
SM are ignoring and mistreating them since so long, it makes no sense for such successful group that bring the most money to the company to be ignored in this way, I didn't say that so I won't be thought as an Exol hating on BTS lol...but thats exactly what I was thinking
the whole Mama thing boycotting them does not make sense as will...and BTS keep winning every year without any other important group..its so clear lol...but fans and most people couldn't see it
and yes, SM switching this hard toward NCT when them didn't bring any money and success like EXO did..make no sense as will...they wanted SM to focus on some not a popular group like NCT with 23 members, so many units, its so confusing the average fan would find very hard to stan them...they know that lol
But it's pretty obvious the kpop industry is focused on BTS.
We talked about last year MAMA. BTS got to perform for a total of 30 minutes
Meanwhile other groups like Mamamoo got their performance cut short.
Groups from the big companies: SM, YG, and JYP stopped atending those award shows.
Leaving all the spotlight to BTS only.
Big Bang started to get all scandals, EXO started to enlist, and it seems every competiton BTS had suddenly dissapeared.
Blackpink are allowed to have some spotlight because they were chosen as "the female kpop group" to promote in the US.
