    Since some people are using every opportunity to hate SM and all their artists even if there's no reason to I decided to create this thread.
    More often than not I hear SM haters accusing this company of caring about beauty and visuals only. They are wrong of course but instead of writing essays I'm just going to prove them that this statement is simply a bullshit.

    1.

    "Taeyeon is telling listeners that even if right now you feel as if you’re getting no recognition for your efforts, don’t worry – eventually they’ll see you fly. Although the world can be cruel, sometimes you have to take a stand to become the person you’ve always wanted to be, and that could mean making a change."

    "Escaping an abusive relationship"

    "A call for a world peace and for coexistence"

    "Encouragment for people to follow their dreams and work hard for them."

    "Female empowerment. Challening the idea that women should be demure and submissive"

    "Critism of the impact technology has on society"

    "The want to find someone's own destination and what fits everyone else."

    And much more:










    And this never fails to make me cry.

    Just as many Jonghyun's songs. To say that SM is all about visuals only when Jonghyun was releasing a masterpiece after masterpiece.

    So now when you already got a proof that SM is not about visuals only and they can have meaningful songs as well, can we stop with this false statement?
    And besides it's not like a song have to be meaningful to be good. Sometimes you just want to take a break from your struggles and just relax by listening to chill or happy song, right? If all popular songs were about mental health or society issues we all would already deal with depression.

    Most of these are B-Sides. It's hard to find meaningful title tracks.

    That's true. Whenever I remember Jonghyun's songs, even the ones that sounded like a playful songs, I have tears in my eyes. The passion this guy held for music is way beyond me. Although I'm not talking about him much, maybe because it's still painful, I admire him a lot and his discography is close to my heart. No one managed to hit my feelings so much like Jonghyun could. Shit i'm getting emotional

    And why does it matter? B-sides or not they still managed to create a meaningful song. Haters used to say SM is all about visuals and beauty so I simply proved them wrong. Because as you can see SM artists' music is much more than that.

    Same. It's so beautiful. But honestly Jonghyun just had a talent to touch people's hearts with his words, through the music he created.

    Of course because SM's fault that you don't look beyond Title tracks.

    That mentality is not healthy, I wonder how some of you behave around the people around you.

    All you spread is hate, if your life is that painful, please seek help.

    Hapiness by red velvet

    It's about the research of hapiness and how hapiness should matter more than money and fame, because it's not the thing who will bring you hapiness

    Cool world by red velvet

    Is about the fact that be yourself is better than trying to fit with other people because when you are yourself the world much more cool

    Nct - simon says

    Is about being yourself and not trying to do what society dictate to people like the game

    Nct - superhuman

    it's about self confidence and be abme to achieve anything if you believe in yourself

    Nct - firetruck

    Is about give up the routine

    Oh! Gg - fermata

    Is about leaving everything behind you, to take some time to rest to find your true self

    Some people even intrepete it as a song who talk about the path of snsd about how busy they were during their entire activities that they slowly start to forget who they were
    And now that they can finally take the time to see back on their career and rest they can finally find their true self again

    An anthem about youth, but also about female empowering



    SHINee - A YO

    In this song talks directly to you, just to say that your life is worth it and they try to help your hardships in life trying to help you, saying that you are not the only one suffering, and we all need to go on to enjoy life.



    F(x) -Pretty Girl

    Here f(x) talks about a pretty girl, but then the pretty girl is not that pretty because every girl suddendly started to look like her.
    It can be referred at south korea & plastic surgery
