Fans are eagerly waiting for SNSD to come back as a whole group but SM Entertainment suddenly received criticism, why?

Although very excited about SNSD’s comeback, fans are still not satisfied with SM Ent’s way of working

Sones (SNSD’s fans) are undoubtedly having a great time right now because SNSD is always doing activities with all eight members together. Beginning with the premiere of their own reality show Soshi Tamtam, SNSD has officially released the first teaser, announcing the release date of their 7th full album – FOREVER 1 (August 8).

This is also the first time after 5 years since the release of the album Holiday Night, SNSD has released a product with all 8 members. The album FOREVER 1 is also a special gift they want to give fans on the group’s 15th anniversary. The title song for this full album – FOREVER 1 is a Pop Dance song, written by Kenzie.

The digital music and MV will be released on August 5 – the 15th anniversary, and the physical album will be released on August 8.

On July 25 (KST), SNSD’s social media profiles changed their profile pictures to a new teaser image at the same time. Following that, SNSD fans all around the world voiced their enthusiasm since they only have two weeks till they can finally see the eight girls perform together.

Fans also swiftly updated their profile pictures to a teaser image of the group to show their everlasting affection for the group after so many years. A number of SNSD-related phrases rose to the top of Twitter’s trending list.

And just two days later, SM unveiled the first series of photos of the trio Taeyeon Seohyun Sooyoung. It can be seen that the three girls are recreating the Mr.Taxi concept that once caused a frenzy in 2011.

Although many years have passed, the SM girls still retain their beautiful visuals and original charm.

Although she is the youngest member of the group, Seohyun also fully shows off her charm in the group’s concept photos.

Yoona, Yuri, and Hyoyeon are the next members to have teaser photos released. Yoona continues to demonstrate why the title “visual queen” is appropriate for her. In this new set of photos, Yuri appears to be really gorgeous. Hyoyeon also showed her darkly colored hair to the crowd.

It is clear that the amazing attractiveness of the six SNSD members “saved” this concept. Fans instantly criticized SM for not using real background to produce greater impacts, particularly for a 15-year-old group like SNSD.

Furthermore, the publication of the schedule so close to the comeback date (just over a week before the comeback date) may have an impact on the group ‘s achievement this time:

  • The background behind Sooyoung looks distorted, which makes me extremely uncomfortable.
  • Please do a good job SM, we paid for the album, right?
  • It’s been a long time since they’ve put it all together in one album and the company is so bad at it
  • The concept looks so sketchy, it looks even worse than Mr.Taxi released in 2011!
