Older 👏 kpop 👏 groups 👏 set 👏 the 👏 foundation 👏 for 👏 newer 👏 kpop 👏 groups 👏 to 👏 get 👏 where 👏 they 👏 are 👏 today 👏
Newer kpop groups are easily riding the Hallyu Wave that has already been created. They’re not doing anything spectacular for kpop as a whole.
Y'all better know damn well that there would be no Exo or NCT without BoA (queen) practically saving SM from going bankrupt and getting into the Japan market. Shinwa (some holy figure), TVXQ (Gods), Super Junior (Legends), Big Bang (Kings).
Show them the respect they fucking deserve. I’m not telling you to like them, but without them, you wouldn’t be listening to your faves cause they wouldn’t exist and even to this day, when the older groups comeback, they still S L A Y.
Big Bang took three years to comeback and they conquered everybody. B Y E. Thank you loyal ass V.I.Ps. If you’re not a V.I.P be thankful that Big Bang doesn’t comeback every year cause then your faves wouldn’t have a chance to win any award. BB on to break more important records though.
calling all fan artists out there! sm entertainment has announced the launching of a new online plaform, fanbook, which will allow artists to set up their own portfolios to share and show off their personal works of fanart. the platform is still in the pre-launch phase but, to celebrate it’s actual launch, sm is calling on artists who are willing to show off their skills in a fanart contest. submissions may be submitted from august 9th - august 31st (kst) and those that are selected will be put on display at both the smtown coex atrium and sm’s communication center. the winners will also be given special unannounced prizes if chosen. those selected will be announced on september 7th (kst). all enteries are to be submitted here!
