The rumors were true fellas!
SM Entertainment will debut a new boy group, it’ll be called SuperM.
Previously, rumors aroused when various news outlets reported that SM was establishing an upcoming boy group with members of different boy groups. The concept and the idea are fresh. Back then, SM simply asked of fans to wait for August 8 for the official announcement and now it’s here.
On August 7 local times, SM held an official presentation in Los Angeles to reveal the huge plans of the upcoming collaboration group. Lee Soo Man calls it ‘the avengers of Kpop.’
Here is everything we know about SuperM so far:
There are 7 members:
SuperM will consist of SHINee’s Taemin, EXO members Baekhyun and Kai, and NCT members Taeyong, Mark, Ten, and Lucas.
So far, there isn’t much information available about each member position and role. It is suspected that the leader will be Taemin since he’s the senior of the group, but others theorize it’ll be an EXO member. SM hasn’t confirmed any of the details of the roles yet.
Once its revealed, you’ll surely find an article about it on jazminemedia.com, you can check for SuperM updates here.
The group will make an American debut
Lee Soo Man announced that SuperM will make their official debut in the United States this October. He also added that the group will focus on promoting overseas.
It seems that they’re planning a global group and looking for a slice of the growing global interest in Kpop. With other acts such as BTS and BLACKPINK breaking records and receiving recognition, many presume SM also wants to dab into that market, and using its talented roster of artists, and find success.
This means that it’ll be EXO’s Baekhyun and Kai American debut as well as SHINee’s Taemin American debut.
According to Billboard, SM A&R executive Chris Lee had this to say about the focus market, he said,
“Starting in the U.S., but it’ll always be global. But even on a bigger level, their fandoms are all over the world so it’s a global thing. Lucas is from Hong Kong, Mark is from Canada, Ten is from Thailand, other members are from Korea, this is very global.”
SuperM musical direction
Lee Soo Man will be in charge of producing for the group which is a big deal itself.
SuperM will focus on performance-based songs while highlighting the choreography. You can expect difficult choreography from the group. This is also expected, since the group has amazing talented dancers, the best of their respective original groups.
SuperM has already launched social media accounts
Shortly after the announcement, SM unveiled the group’s official social media accounts.
We already have a video teaser
During the announcement, a video teaser of the group played at Capitol Congress played. Many twitter accounts circulated the video teaser, you can watch it here:
