Try making TXT hit bigger, at this point, it would be such a waste of these kids

The bigger HYBE gets, the more I feel like there’s an unification of K-pop

Just like SM, they all seem to be setting goals but there 2 male groups are just struggling and they are only getting crumbs from overseas due to the Bangtan effect
