I’ve seen people call SM Station songs solo debuts (Amber, Ten, Suho,…) but to me, they are not solo debuts at all. The songs don’t get promoted on music shows or anything. It’s literally just the artists putting out some music inbetween their group comebacks just for the fans. Not to mention that around 60% of the Station songs don’t even get recognised by the fans and remain mostly unknown with just a few thousand views.
I’ve seen all the lightsticks in kpop and I’ve to say that EXO’s has the best design. But seeing all the lightsticks of the sm groups, I’m scared that the 3rd version of eribong might look like cheap plastic.
I feel like SM is the most successful company because they’re the best of the worst. Like no matter how poorly they handle any situations, trainees, line distributions, scandals, etc, there’s always a company that’s worse. They’re like the Canada of the Korean Entertainment Industry.
I feel bad for exo and shinee. They could be breaking so many international records if sm just Gave them some proper fucking promotions! I understand they want to give attention to nct and rv as they’re newer groups but I hate that they literally leave older groups to fend for themselves.
I am not sure if it’s cause SM likes one kind of face or they like one specific form of plastic surgery… Probably a mix… But it’s starting to freak me out a little
Okay, that’s ridiculous! Why does SM keep doing that to EXO? I mean, is always the ComebackInTheSecondHalfOfTheYear-Repackage-WinterAlbum marathon. Instead of tyring the boys like that (and making exo-ls impatiant) just distribute the comebacks better. I’m mad at that, seriously.
I don’t deny that groups who come out of the Big 3 have an advantage. But it’s not like EVERY group not from the Big 3 is struggling in nugudom and eating grass. Or that broadcasting companies kiss Big 3 butt and ignore the others. People exaggerate the Big 3 privilege for way more than it is. If anything these days there’s more of a “Produce Privilege”
“ SM is so petty its been nearly 10 years already let JYJ appear on tv now! Junsu’s words at his concerts made me cry for hours he’s the best vocalist I’ve ever seen and its so frustrating to see such a talented man being kept from showing his talent because of that company”
So I think all can agree that a lot of idols kinda promote unhealthy body standards/image, like I know it’s the company that says they have to look a certain way; and most of the time it’s not extremely bad. But for the loving god of me, I can’t forgive SM for having Wendy wearing clothes that was so revealing, when RV promoted red flavor. Sure they couldn’t make her gain a lot of weight, but they didn’t have to show it of like that; like they wanted people to grool over her, and praise her.
I find it so funny when newer fans see one H.O.T’s performances for the first time and comment on how visually they look similar to some of SM’s younger artists. They’re somewhat right, SM has had the same beauty standard for over 20 years and they probably won’t be changing anytime soon.
