SMTown is coming to us on New Year's free :nakypog:
Ngl, this is unexpected but certainly welcome lol.

Article link: SM 측 "1월 1일 온라인 콘서트 무료 중계, 태연→레드벨벳 출연"(공식)

SMTOWN LIVE “Culture Humanity” will start at 1pm on January 1, 2021 (KST), via various platforms including Beyond LIVE channel of Naver V LIVE, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, and KNTV (Japan).

The performing artists will be TVXQ, Super Junior, Taeyeon (Girl’s Generation), Taemin (SHINee), Baekhyun and Kai (EXO), Red Velvet, NCT (WayV), SuperM, aespa and etc.

The entire concert has already been pre-recorded and the filming was conducted safely in compliance with the covid restrictions.

The performances are organized in an omnibus format to provide various music performances with the help of AR (Augmented Reality) technology and graphic effects that link camera works into the real spaces to give the viewers the best experiences while watching from their living room.
Basically almost every SM act will be appearing except BoA, Shinee (except Taemin), SNSD Oh!GG (except Taeyeon) and EXO (except Baekhyun/Kai). BoA is understandable due to her recent controversy and I guess Shinee members just got out of enlistment, but not having Chanyeol and Sehun feels kinda weird.
Also, performances have already been recorded so I think we could still see Taeyong perform, and probably Wendy as well- making it RV's first OT5 performance in over a year. Poor Yeri and Joy basically sat out of promotions the whole year.

Anticipating :sanapray:

Here's the trailer in case anyone missed it:

I'm lowkey shocked it's free lol, like what's the catch SM :susPepe:
NCT just had their Beyond Live yesterday and it attracted 200K paid viewers, at a price of $40 each so that's $8 million :jisoosmh:
This would def have more viewers and it's free? :jisoosmh:

Also did you not sleep or are you awake super early lmao.

I would usually skip since idc and EXO as a whole isn't there but it's FREE + I love most SM songs + RED VELVET AND ESPECIALLY WENDY so I'm definitely NOT missing this.

Also apparently the reason it's free is because it's for a charity but I'm not sure where they're getting the money from for the charity since it's free... :umwhat:

Yeah I'd usually skip too but it's FREE and watching all SM groups interact with each other always feels great. And I have an off day on the 1st so no way am I missing :pikahappy:

Yep ikr lmao, I'd understand if all the revenue from ticket sales etc went to charity but what exactly is happening here :jisoosmh:

Either way, it's a freebie so whatever I guess lol.

Sponsored with all the money going to charity?
Yeah that's what I'm thinking too lol.
Either way, I'm interested to see what kinda numbers they pull. So far, NCT 2020 yesterday had the highest viewers for a Beyond Live at 200K but that was paid. This will be free and on multiple platforms, but it's also 1pm KST on January 1, so the timing might be off for many people.

But I've always wanted to watch an entire SMTown show so I'm anticipating, the surprise stages/collabs you get are pretty cool.

Awake super early implies you actually went to sleep which didn't happen :jisoosmh::lisalaugh:
