The Hard Truth: Why Boy Bands Are Better

The Kpop music industry has no shortage of either girl or boy band groups. Even more so, after this year’s wave of rookie debuts. Even though I’m not exactly sure about the economical benefits of either gender’s group -whether a boy group or a girl group earns more- it seems that forming a boy band […]
