SM’s songs are always considered as good and appealing to the public. However, their own artists may not think the same!
There are many artists from this famous entertainment company who had showed their worries about this problem. Almost all of them shared the same thoughts which makes fans worried about SM’s working systems.
BoA who is worried about the essence of being an artist “When you like a book, you want to read it until the end. But the issue is that I don’t even remember the song and the dance of the songs I released these past 3 years.”
Key (SHINee) also shared same opinion “Me too I’m always worried about this. Between appealing to the public and making arts, where should we compromise?…” […] “I thought that (SM) is into difficult music and dances but I want to make something simpler.”
Eunhyuk: “The song isn’t well known to the public and it won #1 8 times? They think “That’s their league!”, and BoA answered: “If it was me, I wouldn’t listen to my own songs either.”
People said that they wondered if SM’s songs are actually that “good” because their lyrics are just so hard to understand and they are weird. SM bought a lot of music from foreign composers but there were so many instances where fans thought that no matter how good the melodies were, their singers were still able to pull off the songs well, working hard and putting all of their efforts into the products.
