Netizens react to news of SM debuting a new girl group and boy group


SM Entertainment has definitely brought in buzz after CEO Kim Young Min stated that they would be debuting a new boy and girl group.

Although many are excited at the prospect of seeing new groups take the stage, many have voiced their concerns, including comments mentioning the lack of proper treatment towards existing groups considering that SM's main groups consist of Red Velvet, EXO, and all of NCT

Comments include: 

"Please... I'm so sick of seeing only Red Velvet."

"You should just push EXO instead of using them as cash cows."

"But the female trainees aren't that great..."

"Isn't it probably another NCT subunit? SuperM isn't technically a new group."

"Honestly it's impossible not to look forward to groups from big labels like this. Can't wait."

What are your thoughts on the news?

Its good to see a new Female group (since SM only really have Red Velvet) fx have left SM and Girls Generation are hardly active anymore.

i'm not sure about a Male group though. Even though most members of SHINee & EXO are doing militar service, TVXQ, Super Junior & NCT are still here. So I don't understand why SM are putting together another Male group.

I'm interested in these new groups. SM always debuts talented trainees that usually take the viewers by storm, wether be it for their visuals, rapping, vocals, dancing etc. However, I do agree with some comments. They shouldn't forget the already debuted groups and the solo artists they have and give them more comebacks and promotions.
