1. [+288, -7] And all of them did well... No wonder why people try so hard to get into SM

2. [+262, -4] Isn't it true though? The songs were good, their plans were excellent, and the results weren't bad.

3. [+250, -4] SM's planning skill is just amazing. They have so many singers but all of them managed to release an album within a year.

4. [+111, -37] I think EXO's songs are quite public-friendly. I'm not a fan but I listen to Call Me Baby and Love Me Right.

5. [+72, -2] I'm a YG fan. People say YG and SM are the best entertainment companies in Korea, but if you stan them, you'll realize that YG can't even reach the dirt of SM's toe ㅋㅋ YG as a company is overrated in so many ways.

6. [+61, -6] YG needs to learn from this. Why can't they multitask when SM can promote 3 teams at once?

7. [+35, -1] SM is amazing because they don't show how the groups lack after withdrawals, but they show how the groups are even more perfect after the withdrawals. EXO and f(x)...

8. [+31, -5] As a non-fan, I can say that YG can't even compete SM. Honestly, YG doesn't have any artist to brag about except Bigbang. This is the reality. Winner is a rookie group but they're not even out. AkMu is digitally strong but they're not out. iKON doesn't have a good image to the public because of their disses. My Type did well but Rhythm Ta didn't, so their aftermath is weak. I don't think 2NE1 can promote for a while. I guess their idea is freedom but YG's skills as a company are the worst. They're all about the artists.

9. [+25, -2] SM is the best when it comes to planning. YG is the best when it comes to image-making. FNC is the best when it comes to media-play and package deals.

10. [+21, -0] They had a lot of bad news in 2014 but this year covered everything. They made EXO, SNSD, and f(x) stable after withdrawals, made Red Velvet popular, and well-promoted Super Junior when they're enlisting.
