Japanese are hella jealous of these guys' international success.

The image of men in the modern era. I wonder what the people 50 years ago would think how we turn out. Probably not this.

When I think of K pop I think of suicides. Will they never learn. Money will not buy them happiness. It will mess them up. I can see it coming.

SK stringent adherence to national service is the deal breaker.

Politically, to debate exemptions for stars such as BTS , is akin to creating a lawyers charter, the legal train that will follow will be accounted in years.

It's great being a commodity to be bought and sold on the stock market.

This is GIGO. Reminds one of a Ponzi scheme.

Subtle, Speed, may I suggest ironic, commodities have a developed definable value chain. the essence enshrined in the recognizable network of labor and production processes.

BTS, cannot in any manner of context be construed as unit/analysis/raw material.

BTS risk is capricious, variable, and based/defined with *financial uncertainty, legal liabilities, strategic management errors. Being singing and dance "pretty boys" *has a shelf life.

Remember One Direction?

60% is from Japanese fans and Japanese media.

Until late 90's, it was reverse, Koreans were fans of Japanese groups/bands/musician.

Not anymore and Never will.

Because Japanese forgot the No.1 rule: The future belongs to those who show up for it

Leo: "When I think of K pop I think of suicides. Will they never learn."

He says, while Japan is still reeling from the news of Yuko Takeuchi, Sei Ahina, Haruma Miura, and Hana Kimura -- all of whom committed suicide within four months of each other.

Ego Sum Lux Mundi: "Japanese are hella jealous of these guys' international success."

You got that right. And point out to the people not only that most Japanese prefer Korean products in one form or another (be it cheaper TVs or phones, Korean dramas, music, or what have you), and how young people aspire to go to Korea to learn to sing and dance and be in a band, and the EXPLODE! So much so they air a show about Hiromi Go -- ironically so full of botox and plastic surgery he can't close his lips or frown -- was the peak of Johnny's to try and focus on the accomplishments of that entertainment industry.

The music industry is an insidious business. That’s why musicians prosper outside of it.

What goes up comes down. Personally I think it is a terrible investment. What happen when these guys get old. The only person who made the money was the founder, those who bought stock low and if it is high sell it now and take the gains!

Even though the governments of South Korea and Japan are at odds i hope the people remain friendly to each other!

I think kpop and hallyu still have a few years left LOL

Very risky investment if these people are investing for the long term. Because unlike the other agencies such as SM, YG and JYP that have debuted numerous successful groups over the years. Big Hit has BTS, and well only really BTS.... A recent boy group that they debuted, is doing okay, but nothing amazing. So, unless they can hit it lucky with a few more groups of BTS' level. The bubble will eventually burst, and along with it, those high stock levels......

Who would invest in this for the long term?

Do people commenting on this thread not understand how investing works?
