    SNSD's Overexposure?

    Post by queenbee on Thu 01 Apr 2010, 4:38 am

    And Im not talking about this


    With the release of SNSD's new repackaged album, Run Devil Run (or as Yoona sings it - "Lan Debul Lan") one can only wonder how come, out of all of SME's artists, why is it only SNSD is the one coming out with album after mini-album after single?

    Taking a look at the numbers will have one realize how adamant SME is in making sure SNSD are always out in the spotlight. Below is a list showcasing majority of SM Entertainment's artists and their numbers.

    2008 I Cant Bear It Anymore (Bear Song)
    April 2009 Hahaha
    October 2009 Chocolate Love (retro-pop version)

    Shinee
    NONE


    While the trend of releasing a full album every two years seems to be constant with almost all artists (off topic: except for CSJH.. wth?... and will be waiting for ZLY's 2nd album this year if this IS really the case), one would still have to notice SNSD's regularity of releasing songs be it a mini-album, a single, or a remix since their debut.

    Also, one thing youd notice is all their CF themes become their digital single, repackaged and released into a full-out 3-minute-plus song. So its not just enough for SME that we get to endure these 9 girls on a TV commercials for a couple of seconds, but in terms of publicity, they turn the 30-second jingle into a full blown song for InSanes to cash in.

    This only re-affirms our belief on how biased SM Entertainment is with SNSD after all the bad press and cover-ups, one would think this group that is lacking in talent and good PR is not worth the companys money and effort.

    We all know what happened to SNSD during Dream Concert, SM Town and China, right? But then afterwards, we had suddenly had this supposed SNSDs surge of popularity in 2009, winning award after award, and apparently the title that they are now hallyu stars. This totally contradicts the events which unfolded two years before, which makes one wonder if there is really something going on underneath all the plastic finish.

    While InSanes go about shouting to everyone they meet that 2009 is for SNSD, 2009 was also the year when K-pop was dealt with embarrassments of epic proportions.

    Before, music award shows were revered and eagerly anticipated. However, in December 2009, chaos ensued when SM Entertainment forbade their talents to attend the MAMA 2009. The reason? SNSD's Gee was not one of the nominees for Best Song (boo-hoo). Thus, majority of the end of year award shows after the MAMA decided to forego the whole award thing in order to avoid public ridicule.

    Members of SM Entertainments two biggest groups (TVXQ and SJ) have filed lawsuits against the company. SNSD was even dragged into the whole thing due to racism. In my opinion, where there is smoke, there is fire. This is definitely not the first time SNSD were tagged as racists.

    So the big question is -- WHY?

    Why even after all the mess SNSD has put K-pop in, does SM Entertainment insists of bringing these 9 girls in to the spotlight?

    So are we expecting a new single/mini-album from SNSD this 2010? With the way things are going, thats unfortunately a definite yes

    Will the other SME talents get to release their own single/mini-album/album? That remains to be seen

    So lets all cross our fingers and hope that 2010 brings in REAL talent without LSM having to fork out a lot of cash.

    I bet they'll be back with a mini album or single in around July or so.. nicely arranged after all the big comebacks in Apr/May and before the peak period in the last quarter of the year. Just like Genie. Though it seems like their performance this year has been rather mediocre; Oh and Run Devil Run haven't seem to have made that much impact as Gee.. Cool

    Anyway, despite the obvious lack of talent and good publicity, it seems that they are still raking in some money from the ajusshis (with something else other than talent, of course) if every ajusshi buys multiple copies. Guess SM has to hurry and promote SNSD as much as they can before the ajusshis get finally sick of them.

    -_- Hopefully eventually Sones will get tired of SNSD (unlikely) and SME will move onto a more...Loved? Group!
    Im still waiting for SHINee's Comeback ><
    And after Sorry Sorry, SJ went on hiatus -_-
    And well DBSK? Well all know the story there.
    I'll admit, SNSD are the 'craze' at the moment, that would explain why SME is trying to get as much money out of SNSD as they can for the moment.
    Let's see what happens...Patience -_-

    Isn't snsd under slave contract like the rest of sm ent. artists, I always wonder how much of all this money, the plastics are actually getting? I find it hard to believe that sm ent is raking in a bunch of money, since they spend so much on the plastics. The plastic probably make peanuts, maybe that's why they are all so skinny!
    I thought album sales didn't count for much income, and how much did that repackaged album actually bring in?
    I hope sm goes broke.

    Wow, CSJH only had one album and a handful of singles released in Korea? That's just wow. I don't know what to say about that. Wasted potential there, SME. I wonder how South Korea feel about the overexposure of these girls. I mean they are EVERYWHERE, from music shows to variety shows. What hasn't been plagued by the nine baboons? I feel sad for the other artists under SME, being pushed aside for the nine idiots who can't carry a tune or dance. I have a feeling that they'll disappear soon though, since the big wigs are coming out to play. But I know once Hyori, Rain, Wonder Girls, etc finishes with promotions and are back on hiatus those kiddies will come back out, releasing what they can so they can squeeze every last penny from their adoring fans. Ugh, I wish they'd go on a permanent vacation.

    SNSD's being overused ;
    They're pissing me off - seeing them everywhere.
    They were still somewhat tolerable till the whole GEE craze.
    & Now everyone's having a fit over the "Dark Concept"
    I don't see what's so "amazing" about it -0-"
    Many other KPop stars have done it already, it's just another jock.
    So seriously, what's so "amazing" about it?
    After School's done it already. Kara's done it already.
    What makes SNSD's concept so special? -0-"

    If you actually count, SNSD has released more albums, singles and mini albums than Super Junior or DBSK. Every year it's one album or single from SJ or DBSK and 50 from SNSD.
    LSM really needs to give the other artist a chance and not focus on those nine 'angels'.

    Everything was good until 2007.

    SJ is currently on hiatus and DBSK is having a few issues.
    SHINee just finished filming Hello Baby and Zhang Li Yin and CSJH are like forgotten.

    And SNSD are like releasing album, singles and stuff like crazy.

    DBSK did have Version A B C D for Mirotic and Suju did have Version A B C D for their 3rd Jib as well... so how different are versions to repackaged?

    Album Versions typically have same songs with different packaging. Repackaged albums are usually traeted as a whole new album because of addition of 2 or more songs and an array of remixes.

    In the case of DBSK and SJ, the first 2 versions of their albums had different album covers,additional posters, etc... the succeeding versions had 1-2 songs added but was still promoted by SM Entertainment as under one album. So its like those that didnt make the cut in the original demo, was added in later on (for profit, of course).

    SNSD, on the other hand, dont have versions... they have repackaged albums (meaning a new song, a new remix, a new promotional media) and album sales are to be counted separately. so it that a big deal? YES - because it means additional promotional value.

    Versions - only SME benefits

    Repackaged albums - SME and artists benefit - SME for the moolah and the artists for more media exposure ;P

    which is why i noted in my article that album versions are not included :)

    Oh my so defensive,In my opinion several versions of one album is worse than a repackaged. Atleast you know there is only one repackaged album to buy, not 10 albums but one with a poster and the other with dvds of video makings.

    Promotional value, yes, however its all about the money and 5 version generate that money to sustain the promotion of SNSD. One large vicious cycle to fund SNSD, atleast they can't do that to TVXQ no more, they are separated.

    Of course they are over-exposed, SO damn over-exposed and so damn overrated.
    Sad but true that sex sells, and that is SNSD all about.
    Thank you queenbee for another very good article, for exposing and confirming another truth about those wh*res.
    Confirmed with good research and FACTS (as always in STAND, and all antisoshit info is always backed up WITH FACTS).

    They are super ultra over-exposed, to an extreme nauseating point.
    I mean, they are even in the soup literally EVEN in the soup.
    I pity Koreans because they have to bare to see them damn everywhere. X_____X
