The K-Pop industry is always filled with new releases from new groups and older ones alike so, of course, it is difficult for any soloist or group to get the recognition they deserve for the work that they put into their music. Groups from more prominent companies or already established fanbases are much more likely to have successful sales, leading to a bigger budget for comebacks, which starts a repetitive cycle, keeping some groups overlooked.
Recently on the K-pop subreddit, users discussed which songs were released that flopped despite deserving to be successful releases.
