  1. I wonder how many seats were there...


    I don't understand why irrelevant K-Pop groups debut in Korea, only to run to Japan when they can't get decent sales. Why not bypass all of the trouble and debut in Japan as a J-Pop group instead? The fact that the majority of K-Pop revenue is from Japan is sad, really.

  2. making money in japan is not sad o.O korean music industry is very small compared to japan. there's not much money to make there. and technically for this group, they debuted in japan first before korea. and the venue is 500 seats but who cares? i lub this nugu group. they're so much fun!

  4. Yes it is if the market in Korea is so saturated that profits are nearly non-existent for rookie groups like Crayon Pop. J-Pop has nowhere near the global recognition that K-Pop has (J-Pop is practically anti-YouTube nowadays) and yet its market is much more stable and profitable. A market should be able to stand on its own. If your own groups are seeking profits elsewhere, that's a HUGE problem.



    Crayon Pop should've stayed in Japan instead of trying to play two deck of cards when one is obviously futile.

  6. Crayon Pop is not going to go down easily, like the other rookie flops this year.

  8. Crayon Pop Exid and HelloVenus are the only female groups that debuted this year that I have a good feeling about. They may be irrelevent now but just wait a few months and see.

  9. Japan has twice the population. It also has twice the currency value
    (in real terms) than Korea - ask anyone who has ever flown from Korea to
    Japan and lost half their money at the currency exchange. Japan is the
    logical first overseas target for any Korean group for these reasons
    alone, so if a band has any chance at all of breaking there, they would
    be stupid not to try. Korea's music economy really isn't big enough to
    sustain all the performers it has, almost no pop stars make a decent
    living off music in Korea, but in Japan it's more possible for them to
    survive off just music. If you look at all the idols who have been
    buying themselves property lately or doing other crazy stankin' rich things (SNSD, KARA, T-ara, BigBang), they all have one thing in common - recent Japanese chart performance. And debuting "as a J-pop group", well that's just silly now. International tensions are high and Japan are annoyed enough about Korean groups taking all their money as it, they'd be even more annoyed if Koreans tried to get in by stealth...

  10. Maybe they're not popular in Korea, but they are one of the rookies that have their own charm. I'm not a fan, but I see that they're really funny, and their stages are full of joy unlike some 'I-try-to-be-sexy' or 'Look-how-cool-I-am' groups ^^

  12. Stop saying that Korean industry is small and shit, if it wasn't because America moved its ass years ago to be like the best though they are not American industry wouldn't be that big.
    It's because Europe Asia and Latin America buys USA's shit

  14. Crayon-Flop sounds much better since they're flopping already xD
    Is this the female version of U-FLOP??

    ReplyDelete
  15. after usa japan is the second most profitable music industry in the world.
    thats why kpop idols debut there

    ReplyDelete
  16. I understand why~ it's just that I don't see the point of debuting in Korea if they're just going to run to Japan for money xD

  17. are you familiar with jpop at all? just wondering.. jpop may not be as popular as it used to be but its silly to say it has no global recognition>.>

    ReplyDelete
  18. technically it has, but more specifically i would say the current rate of gaining global recognition is slower than that of kpop

  19. based on a comment here, its 500.

  20. I really like Crayon Pop. They're really nice to fans and seeing them work hard only makes me appreciate more their efforts despite them being nugus. Like what another person said, they don't have the look-at-me-im-sexy or hey-oppa-im-cute-right image, and their songs are quite catchy too.


    Dancing Queen is my favorite because not only the dance is silly, the lyrics aren't about oppa, which what most songs are about these days.

  21. because they are korean n by logic they would have sign with korean label so of course they debut in Korea 1st. i really dont see why u insist they debut in japan 1st. they would have to sign with japan label, and as nugus/rookies, who would want to sign them?

    ReplyDelete
  22. yup they r really funny and if they stay true with this concept and make funnier songs that sell, they can make it

  23. They were in Japan even before they debuted performing most of their songs in Japanese first and there were a long line of people shaking their hands and getting their cds so I would like to think they are doing well.
