    News SM's donation to Shining Foundation

    This is SM's impressive donation to the foundation founded in Jonghyun's honor. I'd like to stress that this is purely a donation; Jonghyun's mom has already received Jonghyun's royalties. I'm so happy that the company donates money to help people. :sanapray:

    EXO, SUJU and RV are failures

    BUT not in the sense that you think. SM has expressed interest in having a KPOP group system similar to JPOP groups since 2nd gen. They wanted SUJU to have a rotational unit which would change each year, every idol that debuted under SUJU would specialise in something (Eg. Leeteuk with MCing)...

    Are inter-company groups the future of K-POP? (Long Post)

    By 'Inter-company groups', I mean groups that appear to or work as their own company within their own representative company, a literal example would be Super Junior with the SJ Label, whereas a non-literal example would be Seventeen which mostly produces most of their their stuff by themselves...
