The discrepancy of quality for SM Entertainment goods and merch has become such an issue lately that there have even been news reports of it published in South Korea.
The main problem that fans have been talking of is that the quality of the goods are not the same for all idol groups, despite having the same price tag.
The quality that netizens have found most lacking and poor were the goods of SHINee.
You can check out the photos of the goods below.
Netizens have been calling the blue bag included in SHINee's merch kit as the bag that is used when going out to the market place.
Below are some of the comments left by netizens.
"Ah...the bag is just too much...."
"They're discriminating against SHINee fans, f***ing angry."
"They even wrote an article about it lol SM should reflect upon their actions."
"Please take them all back, or make the ones who made these things use them f***."
"It's been a while that they've been taking SHINee fans as fools..but this is really overdoing it..."
"Honestly, they're all flimsy and bad but I feel SHINee's is especially poor."
"Expensive, and the bag is not even worth using as a bag for the market place."
