    Why are they underpromoting their groups? SNSD had like two stages, EXO's comeback had like 2 weeks worth of promotions which were messed up by smtown and Red Velvet, my babies deserve the world but they get moldy bread crumbs. Lets not even start with fx. Why are they doing this to their own groups? Ever since last year, I've noticed they always cut promotions short, don't send their groups out regularly on variety shows, with the exception of NCT of course. Glad to see they're promoting at least one group right. Is is because SM is too greedy and trying to handle too many things at the same time? Like they already have so any groups. They also have sm station, smtown concerts and individual concerts for all their groups plus solo artists. And there's all the albums they have to get ready. Are they just understaffed or do they seriously not care about the groups' public recognition anymore.

    They need managers and manager of managers.

    Managers for every group + sm station. With the promotionperiod long af.

    Also they need to plan the period with manager of managers. So there is no overlap unless for solo artists.

    LMAO. EXO didn't win today cuz they got points cut for missing broadcasts. What gives these people the idea that SM is promotes EXO well. Heck even fans are doing more than SM.

    Red Velvet, SM needed a new girl group that can earn for them cause let's be honest SNSD's expiration date could be pretty close. EXO is the prime money maker, they see an opportunity for a comeback, promotes them well, easy money for them. Then we have SNSD whose 10th anniversary was barely an afterthought to them cause it didn't bop as well as their old hits.


    I feel like the SNSD 10th anniv comeback situtation in SM was like:
    SM: hey this group is turning 10 let's give them a comeback as a tribute.
    *SNSD comes back w Holiday and All NIght.*
    *Digitals aren't doing well*
    SM: Oh no, they're not giving us as much money as we expected. Time to pull them out cause we won't earn much.

    But at least we got to see these idols promote and actually do quite well (yes SNSD managed to do pretty well given that the competition was tough when they cameback).

    they must think that because they're sm, their artists will do well no matter what and that's why everything has basically been half assed

    EXO lost because of GFriend's YT views and Inki calculates digitals in an odd way.

    I wonder if SM is just trying to milk money from all the groups in time for their new girl group.

    I see nothing wrong
    Like SNSD won't promote anymore in music shows because they won't get any wins .. Which is bad for them .. But fans are bitchy about it because they are selfish .. SNSD are on running man today , had fan signes more variety shows but fans are bitching about music shows that will only bring SNSD down

    Exo have been promoting for 3 weeks not 2
    The members have so much individual schedule to do .. Like kyungsoo is worked af now .. They are preparing for a repack and a solo concert ... But fans will only bitch about music shows .. Exo promoted kokobop like no other album but fans are still bitching about it ..

    Red Velvet promoted the Red Summer to the max
    It's a huge hit .. They appeared on so many shows some I didn't even know existed .. They preformed it on sm town concerts all over Asia .. They have a reality show now aired .. But fans are bitching about music shows

    SM promotion is fine .. It's only fans who's not satisfied no matter what .. Enjoy what the groups are doing becaus some fans are only bitching and whinning while missing out on the promotions

    I think they are just trying to handle too much and aimed to take over Summer and get all the kids who are out of schools pocket money, well that hasn't worked since I think SNSD was supposed to last a few weeks but due to the lukewarm reaction to SNSD and the overwhelming reaction to Wanna One they pulled the plug since SNSD won't be the hottest group.

    SM probably pulled SNSD from music shows because they're most likely not to win much awards :( But they still went on a lot more variety shows this time round.
    EXO got good promotion. From varieties to radio shows to interviews to music shows.
    RV's promotion was more half-assed but they still appeared quite a bit on TV so it wasn't all bad.
    When it comes to promotion, SM does it well. The problem with SM is everything else lol.

    Probably the management changes and well, it happens in companies that if one key person in the staff leaves, all the things under the company would be butchered.

    +1000000000 agree with you
    exo do not have much varieties shows
    they just promote their comeback by performing on the music show.
    weekly idol has mention exo many times, and want them to show up on the program , but sm rejected
    also when there are kokobop challenge trend, sm did not do it best to promote kokobop

    Understandably so since they're rookies who're in most need of that promo.
