Some fans of various SM groups are NOT happy with the new announcement of SuperM’s upcoming debut and for various reasons.
SuperM will consist of SHINee’s Taemin, EXO members Baekhyun and Kai, and NCT members Taeyong, Mark, Ten, and Lucas.
Here is why some fans of these groups are not happy with the announcement:
Some EXO fans aren’t happy that EXO will be pushed aside for this group debut, added to that, Baekhyun was born in 1992 (the oldest of SuperM) and probably has little time left before he’s required to enlist in the group. This means that this takes away another possible EXO comeback.
Some NCT fans are talking about just how overworked some NCT members are being placed in each group every single time. They worry about the health of Taeyong and Mark who seem to be in every NCT unit and are now joining this new group. They also fear for NCT’s future that will probably be pushed aside to establish SuperM.
Other the other hand, some SHINee fans don’t seem to understand why a senior idol artist, who is doing extremely well promoting as a soloist, is joining this group. Taemin also has to enlist within the next two years according to Korean military law. He leads a successful solo career while his fellow SHINee members serve their country.
It also seems that the company does know fans aren’t happy with the announcement. SME exec Chris Lee told Billboard,
“It’s a new sort of team but they will be in their own teams still, of course. We’re trying to unite the fandoms. Fans, please don’t worry about it. We’ll make you all happy.”
However, the majority fans of the three groups pledged their support to the members, regardless of whether some support the idea or not, many still talked about the importance of supporting the members anyways.
What do you think of the idea?
