Ji Sung & Jeno


1, [+102, -3] I think SM will start exposing the kids to the cameras and grow them like Johnny's... I'm getting chills... I'm more scared at how Japanese ahjummas are crazy over those little kids, and Johnny grandpa is like a pervert... I hope our country wouldn't be fantasized over kids

2. [+98, -6] I don't want them to act fake when they're still young trainees. And considering the possibility of not aging well, I want to see them when they're established, not when they're kids... I'm against the Rookies system

3. [+88, -4] 03er is still twelve ㅋㅋㅋ I don't know when they started being a trainee but if they debut at 18, they still have to train for 6 years ㅋㅋ 

4. [+23, -3] I don't know why I'm getting chills... I don't know what the hell they're doing with little kids

5. [+15, -0] Lami reminds me of Sulli because she was cast when she's a child actress. What if she becomes an SM idol and ends up like Sulli ㅋㅋㅋ Sulli is being rebellious because she want to be an actress, not an idol. I'm sure they told her that they'll let her act when they were casting her... The reality would be the non-stop stage performances with a cruel schedule like a money making machine

6. [+14, -0] Lami is pretty. She'll be one of the idols who represent SM's looks

7. [+13, -0] I saw Lami in a hair salon. She's a kid but she was so pretty ㅋㅋㅋ 

8. [+12, -2] Everything aside, SM needs to spit out SM The Ballad Jino



Pann: I think SM Rookies Johnny (Seo Young Ho) will be a stan attractor if he debuts


1. [+44, -0] He's not ugly but his visual gets divided opinions

2. [+37, -8] Taeyong for me... How can someone look like him? SM is really daebak. Taeyong's past pictures look the same... SM is totally jjang ㅠㅠ


3. [+33, -10] Are you the one who keeps posting about Rookies? ㅋㅋㅋ But his face would attract stans, indeed

4. [+14, -1] Non-fans bashed SM idols because "they look the same" and now they're bashing him because he's not SM style... How am I supposed to react to this?

5. [+11, -12] He's the worst from the Rookies

6. [+10, -5] I think I could fit a coin in his nostrils. He looks so-so to me. He looks like a camel, it'll get divided opinions. He's disappointing from SM's standards

7. [+6, -0] He's the ugliest from Rookies. Taeyong is much better

8. [+6, -1] He's so-so
