I come to realize there will take some time until the idol culture can be as popular as ballad and hip hop. But that doesn't mean they can achieve success and be profitable for their companies. Here is a list I think they should do:

-Move away from the Kpop influence. Fashion and hairstyle is ok, but music and video concept should relate to what's popular in Vpop. Look at Erik and Duc Phung. They look like idols, but their music appeals to the audience. 

-Work harder, promote often, be active on sns and regular comebacks. One of the biggest mistakes UNI5 and other groups are doing, is going into hiatus like soloists for a long time, and expect success when returning. It works for soloists, but not for groups. They need to work twice as hard as soloists to get get some recognitions. It's a reason why UNI5, Monstar and Zero9 are completely stuck where they at. They follow the strategy of soloists and it doesn't work for them. 

-Skills needs to be much better. I don't expect Vpop groups to be as good as Kpop in dancing and stage presence. But I think they can do better and narrow the gap to Kpop. When dance cover groups are more synch than Vpop groups, then somebody is not training enough. 

I think with these steps, groups will get respected and even gain a foothold within the general vietnamese audience.

I think they need to break out of Vietnam, no offense to anyone living in Vietnam. I just feel that in order to succeed, they need to break out into the US and other countries as well. Once vpop becomes more widely known, we'll see a lot more poppin up in the US. :)

@maya Yes they should, but they can do botht things. Son Tung Mtp has done it. I think of all the Vpop artists, he has the most international followers, despite never promoted for a international audience. With a potential idol Vpop group, they can have more followers him, if they target the Kpop audience. Do you know D1verse? Their predebut show aired on 1thek, a famous Kpop channel and got some international followers.

@maya I agree that's one way of making Vpop famous around the whole world.

I completely agree with you like they definitely should go around the world and collaborate with other countries artists to bring vpop infront of the whole world and make it more famous than kpop. I mean they have so much amazing potential in them.

@naruto_sun If UNI5 collaberated with a Kpop idol or a mid-famous Dj in America, that could easily put their name out in the world.

@uni5fan99 I agree on that. But I'm guessing they'll take some time to do that. Because you may know they should like do some YouTube advertising in different regions like USA, Europe and do it in a strategic manner. Like the way kpop was introduced in the other regions.

@aang_avatar Sure, putting ads could help. I know SGO48 do that, but since their type of music isn't appealing it didn't help them much. But for a group that uses Kpop influence I think will have better outcome.

@uni5fan99 true SGO48 songs aren't that good. Like promotions by collabs and the way you are telling that they can get more organic views by doing a show in america or somewhere in Europe.

I feel it also comes down to making iconic music, music that can chart everywhere. They don't need to go to the US to be a success, they just need to produce music that people want to hear, and that will eventually come with it.

@nia1999 Upcoming and current groups should look what type of songs and concept works. Zero9, despite being a complete joke did right with Pinocchio. A pop-ballad with a sensitive society topic appealed to the general audience.

UNI5 with BL story Sai got some positive tractions. And the Vi Em La Oxy that were basicially a product placement song, is their most viewed and most liked song of all time. 12 million views and 120k likes. Just examples of concept future groups might use to gain success. 

Not only make music that people like, they must 2x times more and harder than Vpop soloists. Stay active on sns and promote themselves everywhere they can.
