    If the new boy group is related to NCT then the new vocalists won’t have the chance to show their ability anyways but if the new group is not related to NCT they maybe have some amazing vocalists that they are going to put into the group to differentiate them from NCT.

    I think SM is trying to catch up with the times in which hip hop seems to be more profitable than vocals, even though that is their trademark.

    But people still love vocals.
    Everyone is always raving about how 'untalented' singers are nowadays and feel nostalgic about the big3 (Celine,Whitney and Maria)

    I think a vocal group would do very well, along with good dancers.

    And yes Vocals are SM trademark they should stick to their strengths.

    I know but when you look at charts and songs being released, the presence of a hip hop artist has become more frequent than having a vocal only song.

    And even though SM loves vocals it makes their music seem slower and less upbeat and addictive than faster songs.

    Its just an observation of mine.

    for me the best parts in NCT songs are the vocals ones especially Taeil , Doyong ,jaehyun and haechan parts sadly a lot of NCT members didn't have the opportunity to shine and yes as you said NCT has by far the best set of rappers of SM (although the rap sometimes sound awkward) so i just think looking at super m SM really need to make a vocal group because that what they are good at it (seeing the success of EXO)

    You can add TVXQ as well Sm's most succesful.
    I especially love Doyoungs vocals.

    Which one?

    And now this is more of my own observation: SM's vocal showcase is usually leanes toward ballads and slower songs, which seem dated in a time when fast beast and other types of singing seem to prevail. In trying to catch up in their weakest link, i.e., rappers, SM may try to push them now with NCT.

    But usually SM vocal showcase equal slow song which may be a hit in Korea but flunk everywhere else.

    SM needs to start back going the Vocal route because the rapping is not it. I hope to god the new group isn't another sub unit of NCT and that rap is the last thing on that groups mind.

    Well I dont know if showing the song would be helpful as its sung by a girl and its jpop/jrock.

    Nonetheless I think its possible to have upbeat vocal songs. The rock genre has a few examples of it.

    Sometimes I wonder if SM knows how to create upbeat vocal songs. The closest one I have listened to in regards to Exo is.... prepared to be shocked..... is wolf.... :angryr:

    Ok....its more hardcore then the other songs. Or 'History' could be an example as well.
    Lucky one?

    Because you only listen to EXO under SM and they have upbeat songs that are not title tracks

    i really love all their vocal focused songs
    hopefully they have another vocal bg
    i think it would also be sensible as they have a growing rap focused group, so for diversity´s sake and what not having a vocal focused would be good

    Show me the song anyway, I like jpop/jrock but I wont call myself a frequent listener nor a fan.

    And yes rock has a lot of examples of vocals and no-slow songs.

    It's just that for SM, vocal showcase usually means ballad.

    And their music usually tends to sound like they got on the trend train a bit too late.
