Netizens say that SM Entertainment has released nothing but hits this year


This year has been a busy year for SM Entertainment, with many of its artists making comebacks one after another. 

So far, SM artists such as SHINee, NCT Dream, NCT 127, aespa, and more have made a comeback at least once this year. In addition, these artists have been successful with their album sales and also music chart ranking.

Therefore, one netizen began an online community discussion explaining that the entertainment agency has released nothing hit songs this year. The netizen who created the post explained, "I feel like SHINee + NCT Dream + Red Velvet + NCT 127 + aespa, they were all successful consecutively. People were saying SM Entertainment is flopping but is this flopping?" 

Other netizens joined the online community discussion and commented, "People always said SM Entertainment was going to flop," "I think this year the agency did release a lot of hit songs," "SHINee also did well," "EXO was said to be a flop ever since they debuted but look at them now, lol," "EXO sold so many album copies despite making a comeback after a long time," and " I think this year was the best year yet for SM Entertainment. All their artists did so well."

It wasn’t just hits. It was the long awaited comebacks that were very meaningful to fans. EXO, SHINee, Red Velvet, and 7Dream all made comebacks that really resonated with fans after having a hiatus of some sort. Even NCT 127‘s comeback was awaited for a long time!

From what we've been shown here on Allkpop, SM's financial problem is not their product (music); never has been. 95% (guestimating) of the music from Korea I listen to comes from SM. 100% of what I've purcha$ed came from SM. It's the management within their organization, like how they neglected some ventures (unprofitable) as one verifiable example and (I'm guessing here again) possibly overinvested in others.

But 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭'𝐬 𝐡𝐮𝐫𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 "𝐡𝐢𝐭" 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐠𝐨 𝐨𝐧 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐫𝐭 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬: Damned pandemic.
