SM Entertainment and Mnet Media have been known for their tumultuous relationship ever since SME raised questions of standards against Mnet during SNSD's "Gee" promotions. Since then, SME stopped supplying their artists' songs to the company, and have boycotted all of Mnet's events such as the "2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards." Songs from Super Junior, SNSD, SHINee, f(x) and other SM Entertainment artists are still not available through the Mnet site. Yet the recent release of TVXQ's "Keep Your Head Down" has raised questions regarding their relationship once more, but this time in a positive light. Mnet was the first music site allowed to distribute the song, leading many to speculate the two to be making up and moving on from past controversies. On January 3rd, SM Entertainment representatives revealed, "We have been persistently working together on resolving the past conflicts regarding with our music distribution and have been met with positive results, leading us to release TVXQ's new song to them. We will soon be supplying our other artists' songs to Mnet in the future."
