No but really about the NCT thing even if they do turn out to be a forty member band that rotates and all I’m not concerned about learning names and finding a bias but rather how a company like sm is going to be able to handle all those subgroups when they couldnt keep DBSK together, Super Junior together, SNSD together, f(x) together, EXO together. Like how do they honestly think this is going to work out well in the long run, especially when many lawsuits that have been taken against sm were about unfair payment distribution between members, a lack of care in regard to safety and not being overworked, unreasonable long contracts with barely any room for negotiation inside, basically no artistic freedom, and etc.
I’m really concerned that sm is trying to run themselves to the ground by focusing too much on producing and producing rather than taking care of the artists they already have like Ryeowook’s new album just got released and they basically aren’t promoting it (but what’s new when it comes with super junior and sm, its not like sm has been properly promoting them for a while), and looking back, dbsk’s album before both enlisted into the military wasnt promoted at all, f(x) literally gets the worst from the company and also gets absolutely no promotion especially when compared to exo and girls generation, and along with f(x) neither does Shinee really. And yes even though exo and snsd get promotion better than the other groups, they still arent being treated well by the company or else why would so many lawsuits occur and why would Jessica suddenly be kicked out after so many years (whether she was going to leave or not is a different story) and it doesnt leave out the point that they are all overworked. So I don’t really understand why sm is pushing their luck with many subunits when they keep neglecting artists and groups that have been with them for ten years and such or look like they are going to pass out at anytime.
That’s just my concern, coming from someone who has read most of the lawsuits toward sm entertainment and has watched idols deteriorate in health or get pushed to the sm basement like Trax and The Grace, etc.
The company should fix several internal problems before they even think about the idea of a rotational group which requires much effort especially on behalf of the company which the public has seen isnt doing so well in areas it should be excelling in lately.
