Sometimes I really want to meet idols, not to get an autograph or to shake their hand or let them know of my existence, but to make sure that someone has told them how important and special they are and make sure they feel appreciated for all their hard work.
the very general and blunt history of groups from SM
h.o.t split with SM not offering three members any contracts
S.E.S disappeared with one member at a time from activities followed by a notice saying that the group was no more. It was later revealed that SM did not offer a group contract, so the members decided to leave.
Shinhwa left SM together (after finishing their contracts), fought in lawsuits with SM, and are still in lawsuits due to finally won a lawsuit that originated from SM-created issues that escalated over 12 years.
Fly to the Sky took off together when SM offered a contract to only one member in a group of two
TVXQ parted ways in the nastiest SM battle against three members with the pain still stinging today
TRAX was never the same again after one member went to do other things and another just disappeared. Then one member returned to sue SM for his past slave contract.
CSJH-the Grace never came back, despite hopeful news of a comeback
Super Junior lost a member, gained a member, watched a member disappear into the horizon, and added two new members with a sub group
SNSD dropped a member with details continuing to unfold
f(x) waited for a member, who ultimately decided to leave the group.
EXO lost two members in the same year with similar lawsuits, wanting to break away from SM. Then one member’s dad said the member will leave. Mentioned member left the country to study/heal/etc while dropping ambiguous hints about his status in the group. And then he left.
