Ballistic Boys ranked #1 on weekly album sales despite controversy over BTS

“BTS copy of Ballistic Boys is popular in Japan despite controversy”

When the formation of the Ballistic Boys was announced in the music documentary program <Weekly EXILE>, controversy arises that they followed the BTS (BTS). With similar names, member composition, and pursuit of the same music, it has been a hot topic of interest to fans around the world even before debut.

It was said that netizens would not be able to make their debut in the end due to noise marketing, but after being formed on April 30, 2018, they continued their activities with the opening performance of the group FANTASTICE 9, which was formed on April 30, 2018. It tours 15 cities and attracts more than 30,000 audiences.

In May 2019, they began their activities in earnest with the release of their debut album in Ballistik Boy form EXILE TRIBE. .

When I saw the news about this group last year, it would be a similar situation in that if I saw the actions of the controversial groups with copy so far, it would be disbanded shortly after their debut, or the news of their activities afterwards would be in a similar situation. It is gaining popularity within.

The first week sold 15,475 copies, which is low compared to domestic groups such as BTS, IZone, and Twice, but shows that it is not very popular in Japan in that it is the No. 1 CD sales in the Oricon chart weekly.

Copy Group Controversial groups are mostly active in their home country, but Ballistic Boys are expected to prepare for overseas activities as they said they were aiming for the billboard. While there were reactions, there were also articles saying that it was just following the global trend, and that it was not likely to be copied.

This can also be seen in Japanese articles. Rather than saying that it was influenced by K-POP, this is the direction the agency has been pursuing. Fans of Ballistic Boys also read that the use of BTZ, which was initially controversial, is not an official name, so I hope that it will not be controversial anymore, and it is also emphasized that it is another group that does not pursue BTS.

Despite this controversy, the fact that it made its debut and ranked first in the sales rankings is showing a different course from the groups that have been controversial for copying so far, and I wonder what the reactions will be when I enter overseas.
