On May 6, it was reported that the head of SM Entertainment’s artist and repertoire (A&R) department was under fire for allegedly registering his wife as a lyricist for 15 songs.

The employee had lyrics written by his wife included in 15 songs of famous SM artists including songs by EXO, BoA, Baekhyun, and EXO-CBX and more without the knowledge of the agency.

The employee had used three different names in rotation to avoid getting caught, the three names were under the same trust code on the list of credits.

In response to the report, SM confirmed it and stated that they have taken disciplinary action in response.

The (A&R) department is responsible for the artists’ discovery, contracts and training as well as album planning, production, and promotion. They also play a key role in receiving songs that would fit right for the artists.
