Netizens wonder why most SM artists stopped singing live on music shows since 2020


Netizens are wondering why most SM artists have stopped singing live on music shows since 2020. 

On May 27th, a post on a popular online community gained attention after asking why most SM Entertainment artists have stopped singing live on music shows since 2020. The original poster wrote even those who used to perform live have switched to lip-syncing on music shows since 2020 except few solo performances including Red Velvet's Wendy, Super Junior's Kyuhyun and Ryeowook, EXO's Suho, and SHINee's Onew

After landing on a trending page, many netizens chimed in to share their thoughts about the post. Some of the comments are: "To be precise, it became really rampant in late 2020."

"I do agree it's a little weird. All the other agencies want their artists to sing live but SM is doing the exact opposite." 

"Yeah, even SHINee and Taeyeon will lip-sync on music shows so it's not like their artists can't sing live."

"My idol has amazing vocals and it's a shame that we don't get to see his live performance on music shows." 

"I believe lip-syncing is a disgrace to K-pop" 

"I absolutely hate live AR" 

"Most of them sing live at the events anyway" 

What do you think?

It has been noted that the solo perf here are non-dancing songs (not sure about onew), so if they dont sing these songs live, it would add up to the fuel of live-wanters. Meanwhile, I noticed that Baekhyun sang live for the hard steps in Candy, which was really cool back then. Did taemin sing idea/criminal live atleast once...maybe, in festivals for sure. It s not like they cannot sing live, we know they are amazing singers. Then why do you have to do ths SM
