1. [+113, -2] The singers don't have their own uniqueness and they all sound the same because the same producers make songs for all of them

2. [+70, -2] If getting songs from the same producers keeps repeating, the singers won't have their uniqueness anymore. Just like how idols with sexy concepts have similar songs. The songs have to follow the concept so they can't help but end up sounding similar. Singers used to use Brave Brothers and they're now moving to another producer. Even though they keep clinging on one producer, good songs won't come out all the time, the producer is a human after all. Only the producer will be tired. I understand that using rookie producers is risky but I think things should change. These days, there is no music that lasts long. The songs go to trash only after a few listens. This is caused by various singers getting songs from the same producers. I hope they do something to make the songs above last longer

3. [+39, -0] It's true that most idols get their songs from Brave Brothers-Shinsadong Tiger-Double Sidekick. The point is that the songs are only for the instant. They're meaningless and they just put any lyrics into the melody. We're not looking forward to listen to the songs, we're only looking for the idols' dance and looks. Who even watches idols for their music?

4. [+16, -2] I like the unique music from Bigbang, B1A4, Beast, and Block B

5. [+15, -2] Idols from small companies get their songs from producers like Brave Brothers so they all sound the same. For me, I like SM and YG music much better, even though their public recognition is poor

6. [+14, -0] Double Sidekick's songs all sound familiar. They're all similar

7. [+13, -2] I don't know who JJCC is ㅋㅋㅋ I see them everywhere, please cut the media-play

8. [+13, -0] Double Sidekick doesn't have their own style, they make songs based on the singers' style. Kara's Mamma Mia is a good song but I really couldn't tell the difference from Sweet Tune's songs. They'll do okay because the song is good enough but this is the limit. The singers can't expand from their own style and they're stuck with it. They can't improve because there isn't anything new ㅋㅋ
