TYT is rising.
SM is failing with WayV chinese expansion.
I need c fans of c pop giving the opinion about them.
Are they rising or flopping? With good promotion have chances to compete with UNINE, TFBOYS or NEXT? (Not include NPC because all the 9 are promoting like solo than group).
NO. Basing on their current stand/popularity right now, they definitely cannot compete with the groups you mentioned. TFBOYS have been popular since forever, and they have a more strong fanbase and followers individually and as a group than Nine Percent. NEXT are just like Nine Percent with a bit lesser sparks. They have 3 members promoting as Nine Percent at the same time Nex7. Unine is the current fad so there you go.
SM needs to push more the members visibility or might as well try a new concept? idk. I knew there was something wrong the moment WayV was announced. If it were me, I would've changed some members, some just don't fit with their concept. I understand that this is a Chinese sub-unit of NCT but hey, they are not doing well, there are over 20 current NCT members, they can choose from them.
