The INFINITE members got so emotional that they spilled tears talking about Woollim Entertainment's merger with SM C&C to form 'Woollim Label'.

During their encore stage, Sunggyu said, "The reason why INFINITE was able to come all the way here from the bottom when we debuted three years ago is because of our fans. I'm so lacking that I'm sorry to the members, as well. A lot of people misunderstand. The INFINITE team won't change. We'll give you good music and let you hear great music. I'm hurt because people are misunderstanding. INFINITE will not change."


Sungyeol said, "We trust our CEO's decision. Everyone, just trust us and follow us. We'll give back as much as you trust us." Hoya added, "When we're done with our world tour, some people will say we failed. But I believe that if we gained anything, however small, at all, it's not a failure. We'll be back upgraded another level with the world tour."


Woohyun started crying as he said, "There's nothing we did wrong. We just worked hard to be our best from the beginning. We're always thinking about you. Don't misunderstand. INFINITE will get bigger. Please look forward to it.


Sungjong also teared up and said, "I got confident because of you. I'm so thankful, and I hope we could forever be together." Dongwoo said, "I said I was a zelkova tree. When you think of us as a tree, the things that make us exist are our parents, who are like the ground foundation, Woollim Entertainment, who's like the water that allowed us to work / grow, and the fans, who are like the sun that always watch over us. Some can say that INFINITE is bad and some can say we're good. But we'll become an INFINITE that becomes even better the more you cut us down. We'll become a big tree that you can rest under."


L also cried and said, "To be honest, we had nothing at first. Now, we have a lot of good people. Even if we go back to the way we used to be, it won't be bad. But a person wants to keep having what he has. I can't imagine not having you. Everyone is precious."

if the trainees and the idols got to do what ever they wanted they wouldt go far with so much, i mean if there werent someone strict it would be like "oh another scandal... who is it this time.... oooh it was him this time" and "when will they come with new music? are they only here to be known? and not to make musik as they have been training?"

i think its good that companies is strict... but this is just my opinion.

People need to remember that although money is the first reason why SM built, the shares between artist and agency has been quite mutually profiting. Look at the idols now, they are wealthy, they are independent through SM's environment. 

I think Infinite will living up to their name after joining SM. cannot wait to see!

I am a 20-year old Chinese girl working as a music producer in South Korea.  (I can speak four fluent languages: Cantonese, which is my mother language, English since I was born in the United States, Korean, and Chinese Mandarin.)And for me working in the music industry, I have seen many conflicts with SM Entertainment because they are really strict on training and debuting. 

But for me, really, I do not think that people should hate SM Entertainment because they are being strict about schedules and how to train their trainees. Yes, they might be forceful and strict at the same time. But without them, you guys won't ever see DBSK, Super Junior Girls' Generation, SHINee, EXO, F(x), BoA, and KangTa. 

The founder and creator Lee Soo Man have put a lot of his effort to contribute to the Asian music industry, wanting K-pop spread all around the world. As a music producer working in the music industry, I don't understand why people hate SM Entertainment for having this stupid policies.

Yeah ikr I've always heard people said that SM treat their artist like A SLAVE. Wth?! I don't think they're treating them like that. I just think that SM are strict. If they aren't strict I don't think we'll know the group such as SNSD, Suju n SHINee, right? I think SM worked hard for them. I still don't understand why people thoughts SM are treating their artist like a slave. I mean C'mon. There's no use if they're treating them like that right. SM just wanna they be a successful artist... ^^

@hyogun-park-27 For some reason, I feel like that some K-pop fans are bashing them because they think SM is just pushing their artists too far. They have hectic schedules and never get any rest. But you can't just bash them just by saying that SM won't let them have any rest because I feel like SM Entertainment has the most talented artists. From dancing to singing to acting, they sure are really talented. I feel like SM is one company that's strict and wanted to really spread the genre of K-pop through the world.

@kpoprocks2013 yup, agree with you. The first group that make kpop popular is Suju right? That's all because SM made them show off they talent by the strict schedule. I somehow agree by SM style. If not because of SM I don't think that kpop will be popular like this, right? =)

@hyogun-park-27 It's because of their strict regulations, Hallyu wave has gone this far. Whenever I watch their live performances, I always find someone bashing SM. I always find someone trying to start fan wars and it makes me sad. I work for SM Entertainment myself. Yes, I am exhausted myself, but I love SM like my second home.

I think it's not that bad. SM Entertainment maybe strict but look at the things they've done. Without them there will be NO Super Junior, TVXQ, SHINee, BOA, Kangta, Girls' Generation, f(x) and EXO. We won't get to see these artists and singer if it is not because of SM. The idols won't be in their place at present without SM. The company contributed so much just to make these idols known world wide. I am a great fan of SMTOWN and Infinite. And I guess, it would be better if they'll be under the company. You'll get to see Infinite too when the SM Family get their concert and that is a great deal. I think SM Entertainment has their own plan, we just need to have faith in them. Because without SM Entertainment, we wouldn't be cheering for these idols :)

I know SM is really strict but isnt that a good thing, they are producing some of the best idol in all of Korea, which goes to show that they push thier artist to be the best they can be and the results show, and i think Infinite will excel..

Don't worry Infinite will forever be Infinite that creates great music under Woollim. SM isn't going to make their music, they are just going to promote them better. Don't doubt the name "Infinite"

Well, I am an ELF, Sone & Exotic so SM's style isnt that bad though I also love Woollim's different style too.. I trust Infinite wont change and my love and support for infinite wont change either. I am actually kind of happy that you join SM, so now I have another fav group in SM. I do hope Infinite will keep their style and that's what make you special~ <3 Infinite & Inspirit hwaiting!! Don't give up on them..

Although i love SM's artist, i'd never like the agency at all. I trust Infinite won't change. I'm not afraid. I just.. hate it when SM become more rich because Infinite's success. It seems like SM used their success to be money maker. No different with what they done to its artists.

I couldn't agree more, They produce the best idols, they say... But seriously, I think they're over working them. All they want is money to be very honest, though I'm and cassiopeia an Exotic myself. YG, JYP are much-much lenient and ACTUALLY care or the idols. Look at EXO, they NEVER REST!

i don't know what to think just found out about this...i gonna get hate, but i don't care personally i don't really like this >< i've never liked SM :/ Not sure if this will affect Woolim, but its making my stomach cringe. I personally like Woolim as a small company there's a special charm to it.  i really hope the best for the boys though....♥

I understand that fans are scared. i do. but they don't have to be mean and hurt infinite with their attitude.

they said that their music won't change and SM would have to be stupid to do that because that's infinite's charm and color. I wish fans would not be so close minded and support infinite. they will benefit from merging with a big label like SM that has a lot more resources.

Urm this may seem stupid but why are they so upset that they are crying.?

danya
· Posted September 20, 2013 @ 4:21 pm
because some so called fans have been really mean towards them and their attitude towards the merge was negative so it affected them and hurt them that their fans did this.
