If its success depends on one person, why should you form a boy band? It's a futile thing. Creating a boy band should be committed at the first agreement that the whole member must be solid as a team. They build a career and network together. If the band collapse, members must struggle for its existence to gain more fans just like before. If you wanna be a successful person in music industry, just struggle by yourself. Building your own career, don't join the band and then you'll resign from it after you get your own way to be a famous singer, for example. The way I see it, it's not a professional way.
It's like a "five for the price of one" deal for the record label. They know the boy band will be at least mildly successful. Then when the boy band is no longer popular, one of the members will go on to a successful solo career, giving the label double the bang for their buck.
