Netizens Suspect Mnet And SM Entertainment Are Currently At War With Each Other

Twitter

Two giant K-Pop media platforms seem to be at war, or at least that’s what South Korean netizens suspect.

The reason behind their suspicion? NCT Dream, Red Velvet, and Super Junior unit D&E, won’t be appearing on M Countdown. The calendar shows that the groups won’t be appearing on any Mnet related events.

However, this isn’t the first time that such a scenario has occurred. In fact, the two agencies did go to war before in the past as well in 2009 after an argument about a distribution deal. According to one version of the story, Mnet offered to distribute SM artists’ music, as the former was already distributing for JYP and YG. Had the deal worked out, Mnet would have become the biggest music distribution platform in the entire K-Pop industry. But unfortunately, SM Entertainment could distribute music contents well on their own and didn’t need Mnet to do it for them. After things went sour SM began boycotting Mnet in 2009 and 2010, during the golden days of Girls’ Generation and Super Junior. MAMA attendances were missed by SM artists during the period as well.

And because SM artist are currently not attending M Countdown, netizens believe another beef is ongoing between the two agencies.

Do you agree with netizens? Is something going on between SM Entertainment and Mnet again?

I find the kpop industry changes gradually, the hit or success group artists can come from small or medium company, no need to be the big one. Having bts and twice would be fine and Mnet has the hit produce series group.

remember SM, mama gave exo album of the year last year, when exo didnt even deserve it, BTS love yourself her, was the highest selling album physically and digitally, but they gave to SM because they wanted to keep them happy, so sm has no right to say mama didnt treat them properly, in fact bts was treated badly by mnet instead, they even deleted half our votes in 2017, but did BTS complain, if mnet had deleted exo’s votes, they would have boycotted their and then, if this controversy is because sm wants bts to not be given a… Read more »

the ‘funny’ things about all of this is, I tweeted right after MAMA 2017 last year “SM should be careful they got almost +60% performers of MAMA 2017 and it could be next year and after they will not attending MAMA, just like what happened with YG, after MAMA 2015 that every YG performances got almost 10 minutes each then the very next year and after they never came to MAMA”
