SM's styling is off these days?

Pann: Honestly, SM is weird these days

SM is said to be pioneering new concepts but they've been using trendy & common styles such as choppy bangs and bowlcut.

The MVs and album covers are relatively similar.
1) Blush on cheeks & nose
2) Solid color backgrounds. Somewhat girly.
3) Solid color clothes. Something students would wear.
4) MV filters are like pink selca filters.

Their visuals are decreasing & there's a lack of diversity in SM album covers.


1. [+160, -3] It's because of Min Hee Jin. She used to work for SHINee and f(x) only but she seems to be in charge of all SM artists these days ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+151, -2] It's all due to Min Hee Jin

3. [+120, -37] People keep pointing out about NCT Dream but Taemin, Sulli, and Krystal debuted at similar ages as them. The members are older than them except two. Their ages are similar to Teen Top's debut ages. SM is not pursuing loli stuff, they're copying Japan's AKB and Johnny system. Arashi was exposed on the broadcast when they were much younger than Dream. Why do you keep saying that SM is using loli? Their quality is better than other companies but it's still not enough to satisfy people. I don't know why people's standards keep getting higher for SM. Whether it's good or bad, SM pioneered and discovered so many things... At least they're much more professional than us when it comes to the entertainment market.

4. [+64, -0] Min Hee Jin doesn't care about the artists looking pretty. Her focus is on the background and the overall image. Luna's new song, Taeyeon's Why, and EXO's Lucky One were pastel backgrounds and dreamy images... Min Hee Jin doesn't expand, she just copies & pastes.

5. [+57, -5] They're indeed similar because Min Hee Jin did all the work but I like the MV colors and makeup.

6. [+41, -0] Choppy bangs and bowlcut are not a concept though ㅋㅋ It's only a part of the styling. It's true that they're pioneering new concepts and music styles. It's just that they're too into EDM these days.

7. [+38, -0] How is Min Hee Jin dominating everything... Other SM groups that were unaffected were suddenly changed to pastel colors as well... I personally like them because I like pastel colors. But it's not the group's style anymore, it's SM style.

8. [+37, -3] I honestly agree with this. The idols all look the same.

9. [+27, -0] TVXQ, SNSD, and EXO used to be like major idols. F(x) used to be like a minor group with musicality. The groups were clearly defined but most of them are minor-ish now ㅋㅋ
