Wow. I can't believe people hate both so much. I like the beat to Justin Bieber's first and second album, but I only like the second because he sounds more like a boy. I really like One Direction because the songs are "innocent" and little kids can listen to them too. (Not that they can't listen to Justin Bieber.) I love their sound and they are all in all really good artists and singers. I don't think they could go solo though. They need each other's sounds.
