I try not to write about K-Pop a lot on this blog purely because they don’t get any views which means none of you really care, but one of the most anticipated groups of the past few months just debuted and I have to make todays post about it.
SuperM, The avengers of K-pop, a tagline that left every awaiting SM fan feeling a little bit of second hand embarrassment just released their first song, alongside their mini album and fans everywhere are actually happy. The concept of SuperM is simple, they took the most popular idols from four groups: SHINEE, EXO, NCT and WayV and made a subunit with them all.
The members being: Taemin, Kai, Baekhyun, Taeyong, Mark, Ten and Lucas.
Initially this caused a lot of controversy because every idol they chose have dedicated fans who not only care for their health, but worry about how this would effect their group/solo activities. This also caused a divide between the fandoms and it got pretty ugly.
However, the promotion for this release for amazing. There were trailers, concept photos, interviews and slowly every fan was coming along to the idea that these men would made a great team. The consistent live streams also helped a lot, as the fans had time to engage with all of them, but the promotion surprised us because their agency in Korea – SM – are notoriously awful with promoting their artists.
So the song is out now and I have to say I loved it. I feel like everyone, well almost everyone had their time to shine.
Vocals – amazing
Dancing – amazing
Raps – amazing
The only member who really suffered was Lucas as he didn’t do much.. just Ad-libbing really.
I’m just going to leave the song here, and let you have your own time to form your opinions on this song.
