When groups have been around for a few years, I like to do a side by side from debut to current just to remind myself of how much they change and develop. A rookie group doesn’t get much say in what they’ll sound like or what the concept will be and sometimes it’s a bit…painful for them as well as for us. Frequently, though, the management company may be forced into a more innocent or juvenile style simply because the members actually are innocent and juvenile. For example, Astro was always meant to have a bit of a sexier concept, but when Sanha was added at the ripe old age of 15 – they debuted just shy of his 16th birthday – they had to change them up a bit. And while he’s grown up to be something else altogether, 15 is just not sexy. 15-year-old boys weren’t sexy when I WAS 15.
