I used to think having korean management of vietnamese groups was a good idea. But seeing how they kind of downgrading, and do not utilize the best of vietnamese talent and skills, I'm now against the idea, unless they showing they are willing to help developing Vpop.

Another thing I wonder: Have they done research of the vietnamese music market? Vietnamese audience, both general and Kpop fans oppose groups that are Kpop inspired. If they liked that type of style, then Uni5 and Monstar would have been A-List artists by now. But they're not so. 

We had LIME and last year, D1verse. D1verse is a special case. They were under Rbw, a mid-size korean company, and the expectations was very high. But their debut MV was so cheaply made, I would almost call it a insult against Vpop music standard. And they haven't been active since August 2020, meaning most likely disbanded quietly. 

I'm starting to think these korean companies that are debuting Vpop groups do not have their heart and motivation to make them successful. I think they do it because it's a part of the Korea's ODA assistent to Vietnam. ODA is a form of aid money, and we know many Kpop companies are sponsored by the korean govt. By saying they wanna create a vietnamese group, they may get subsidiary support aka money to do it. If that is the case which I believe it is, then it need to stop. It's a waste of time, money and vietnamese skills. 

 

This is NOT how I want Vpop groups to be shown to the world. Vietnamese should not rely on koreans UNLESS we have a say and control overall. 

 

Side note. There is a new girl group project by korean company SB Entertainment. This is a predebut trainee show. The views are super low and very few are aware of them. Illustrate the problem of my thread yet again.

I agree with you on this one. Because how are they going to take the rising new talent artists if they aren't going to do the marketing and promotion if they doing know anything about the market.

@hangmoon37 That's been a repetetive problem ever since LIME and TAS(another korean attempt before LIME). I welcome korean Kpop producers and trainers, if they are sincere in helping develope the non-existent Vpop idol culture. Because koreans do have the expertise Vietnam will need. SGO48 is probably the only real idol group Vietnam currently have at the moment. But they are not a model that should be followed, except for the fanservice. That is something future groups can learn from them.

@naruto_sun Don't know, but I do smell superiority complex towards vietnamese. Koreans always looked down on Southeast Asia. They think they know everything since they made Kpop.

@uni5fan99 but that doesn't mean they can act like Mr. We know it all and destroy the potential of vpop.

@rem_subaru like why even take the job of promoting vpop if they don't want to introduce any innovation According to what the vietnam audience wants.

@rem_subaru You're right they can't. But it depend on us as well. We need to stop giving them too much respect. Vietnam is a independent country, not some walkover for richer ones.
