Super M is currently one of the most searched K-Pop topics at the moment as it combines members of SM Entertainment’s best idol groups.
Members of Super M have been revealed to be Kai (EXO), TaeMin (SHINee), Mark (NCT), BaekHyun (EXO), Lucas (WayV), Ten (WayV),and TaeYong (NCT).
However, some fans have shown concern over the recent news and have expressed skepticism over whether it was a good idea. Fans have been questioning why SM Entertainment decided to create a new group out of K-Pop idols who have already debuted and are currently in successful groups, instead of just creating an entirely new group made up of rookies.
If you’ve also been wondering why SM Entertainment decided to create Super M, perhaps the following below may give a bit of perspective in to the reason for the group’s birth.
Just recently during Capitol Congress 2019, which took place on August 7th in LA, SM Entertainment founder Lee SooMan revealed:
“I was asked by Capitol Music CEO Steve Barnett to produce a new team that would display the strongest synergy between the West and the East recently. That is the reason why Super M was born. Super M is a group that consists of exceptional seven artists and will be releasing quality music that stands out. Through dance, vocals, rap, and fashion, the group will define the core values of K-Pop.”
Taking Lee SooMan’s statement in to account, it can be assumed that the idea of Super M forming was actually not entirely SM Entertainment’s but from Capitol Music.
It seems that the US record label has plans involving K-Pop’s current popularity in the US music market.
And given that all the members of Super M are individuals who can all deliver what Lee SooMan mentioned which were vocals, choreography, fashion, and overall visuals, fans probably don’t have much to worry about in terms of future releases.
Super M will debut in the upcoming month of October.
