SM Entertainment released a statement regarding the attempt of the pre-order of many 'out of print' albums on KTown4u.
This situation was brought about when Chinese f(x) [MeU] fans started to collaborate with the Chinese version of KTown4u to see if they can convince SME to re-print many out of print f(x) albums such as Red Light, 4 Walls, and Krystal's photobook I Don't Want To Love You.
And now after a week of this going on SME has released the following statement,
"Hello, we're SM Entertainment.
Recently, some online platforms such as "Ktown4U" have attempted to re-produce and purchase SM Entertainment's album, and many fans who love our artists are confused.
As mentioned in the related notice of Ktown4U, We would like to reiterate that such business activities have not been discussed with us in advance, However, in order to repay the fans request for the re-release of the original albums in small quantities, we are working with album producers to produce and supply them quickly, and we would like to inform you that the re-produced albums are distributed to the retailers through the normal distribution process. From now on, we will try to come up with ways to respond quickly to the fans' opinions regarding the re-release of the album through official vendors such as SMTOWN & STORE."
What do you think will happen now?
