Netizens believe Henry is "rotting" his talents under SM Entertainment.

SEE ALSO: Henry says he's feeling more confident following the success of his new single 'Girlfriend'


Henry is often called the 'Musical Genius'. He is an incredible violinist and pianist who started playing the instruments at the young age of 5 and 6, respectively. He studied Music Performance at the University of Toronto until he flew over to South Korea to start training for his debut. He also reportedly received a full scholarship to the prestigious institute; Berklee College of Music


Not just musically, but Henry is also extremely talented in other areas. He is proficient in multiple languages; he's excellent in tennis. It's reported that he has ranked #23 in the entire nation of Canada in the past. If you have been keeping up with him on variety shows, you know that he also boasts a great sense of humor and fun personality. 


With all of these wonderful qualities in mind, netizens are upset at his label SM for their poor management. It's claimed that Henry has so much potential in music but his agency continues to promote him more on variety shows. 


On an online community, netizens portrayed their frustrations, and commented, "He's too good for SM", "This is so true. SM why are you doing this to him...", "So unfortunate..", "Seriously, such genius shouldn't be trapped under SM", "SM can't handle him. He's too good for them", "I want to see Henry doing music and not just on variety shows. He's so talented. Please let him do music TT."


Several months ago in December, Henry also seemed to have expressed his own frustration toward SM via Instagram, writing, " Getting tired. I can't do it alone anymore. Been a mistake since 9 years ago."


Do you agree with netizens about Henry?

    So has anyone thought that Henry would rather do variety than music? I mean he's been doing it for so long now, I wouldn't be surprised if he was tired of it.

    It's possible. I mean -- it's common for a company to buy up talented people to keep them from being competition. Sign them on a contract, and then stuff them in a quiet corner somewhere. Sure, by contract they might have to produce X amount of albums for you... but if they don't actively promote you, you won't get popular. (sure, they stand to lose some money, but they see buying up talent as a buffer investment against the talent they've already produced).

    I think that might be because when he did release music (his two solos), they didn't show as much success as SM would like to see.  Thats why they prefer letting him go on variety shows first to boost his popularity in China.

    Let's be honest, over 50% of SM artists are way too good for SM, some don't get the attention they deserve vocally and dance wise. SM needs to wake up and realize that they've got a musical prodigy that isn't being promoted. Henry really is too talented!

    Saying that but when he released songs in the past, it flopped because you didn't listen to it

    He deserves to be under another label that respects and helps develops his talents, SM is only interested in one or two of their groups. But yet Henry is left in the basement doing his own 'thing'!! Variety shows he shines but me like others want to see him shine even more on the stage!!
