How come K=1 is rare?

An equilibrium constant of K=1 means that neither the reactants or products are being favored in the reaction. This means that the amount of reactants and products is pretty much the same which does not happen often.

This is more of a Chem 14B topic (which I will cover in thermodynamics) but as I mentioned in class K = 1 means reactant and product have same stability (energy) yet different structures.
