Now there are boy groups from small and medium agencies that can ‘make it’ VS No

People want to see which non-big3 agency boy group can 'make it' next

Two of the most difficult achievements for boy groups to achieve include: 1st place on a major broadcasting station music program (KBS, MBC, SBS), and placing on Melon’s yearly top songs chart.

For reference, boy groups from small and medium agencies = boy groups from non-big3 (SM, JYP, YG) agencies and Produce.

Boy groups have achieved 1st place on a major broadcasting station music program in the past 10 years (2009~2019):

B2ST (debut 2009)
CNBLUE (debut 2010)
INFINITE (debut 2010)
TEEN TOP (debut 2010)
B1A4 (debut 2011)
Block B (debut 2011)
VIXX (debut 2012)
B.A.P (debut 2012)
BTOB (debut 2012)
NU’EST (debut 2012)
BTS (debut 2013)
No 2014 debut groups from non-big3 companies have won 1st place on KBS, MBC, or SBS
MONSTA X (debut 2015)
Seventeen (debut 2015)

No currently promoting male idol groups from non-big-3 agencies who debuted between 2016-2019 have won 1st place on KBS, MBC, or SBS. Only two male idol groups in this category managed to earn 1st place nominations on KBS, MBC, or SBS music programs – ASTRO and TXT.

In fact, boy groups who have managed to achieve entry into Melon’s yearly top songs chart in the few years only include:
EXO (SM)
BTS (Big Hit)
Wanna One (CJ)
WINNER (YG)
iKON (YG)
BTOB (Cube)

1. It’s because CJ swept away all of the fame that would have been otherwise reserved for some of the smaller company groups into ‘Produce’. Maybe once CJ goes bankrupt…

2. TXT has the highest chance, but at the same time it’s kind of difficult to consider them from a small or medium agency at this point

3. Seeing this makes me realize just how badly CJ screwed up the entire idol market

4. Bangtan is from a small to medium agency, but TXT is not from a small and medium agency. Big Hit is a big agency now

5. To be honest, the songs of small and medium groups were popular and good at the time, but these days, the songs of small and medium groups are not popular songs, but songs for the fans.

6. I’m looking forward to TXT making it big in the next comeback

7. I’ve heard TXT and ATEEZ mentioned a lot these days, maybe they’re the next new big groups

8. I think SF9 can succeed soon, with Rowoon in the group and their skills

9. I hope ONF is the next group to get big, I love their songs

10. Now, CJ will not be able to do survival shows like ‘Produce’ anymore. But I think they will do shows like ‘Queendom’ and that’s an opportunity for small and medium groupsㄷㄷㄷㄷ

11. I love VERIVERY, I hope they can succeed…
