I paid to watch the online showcase so you didn’t have to.
The concept behind the K-pop group Super M might not make sense to people unfamiliar with how music labels work in Korean pop, so calling them “the Avengers of K-pop” really is the best way to describe it. Each of the seven members––Baekhyun, Taemin, Kai, Taeyong, Ten, Lucas, and Mark––come from different groups under the entertainment powerhouse known as S.M. Entertainment. Their founder, Lee Soo-Man, chose each of them individually to put in one super group…Super M.
Initially when the group was announced, I was against it. SM, to put it generously, is not a great company for a myriad of reasons and how it treats its artists is one of the biggest red flags. So a whole new group consisting of already overworked super stars sounded like a terrible idea. But at the end of the day, S.M. is really good at what they do and I absolutely love Super M. There is very little I won’t do for them at this point, which includes paying for an online concert and staying up until 2 A.M. to watch it.
