SM makes a deficit of 4.4 billion won in the first half of the year

Pann: SM made a deficit of 4.4 billion won in the first half of the year

1. [+131, -4] They overdid things indeed... They've released solo albums when they even knew they wouldn't do well just because they're a long-run group... They're spending a lot of money to promote NCT when they group isn't earning much yet... But it's not like SM is an unstable company. NCT seems to be getting settled. Once a boy group hits big, they'll easily make up the deficit. That's why they're investing a lot.

2. [+131, -1] It's because SM did too many businesses.

3. [+126, -0] But honestly, they've been doing too many businesses like SM Station, games, and food ㅠㅠ No wonder why they're in deficit... For every Station, they film a music video and release an album... ha...

4. [+63, -1] For us, 4.4 billion is a big amount. For SM, do you think 4.4 billion is huge? Isn't it just the price of one concert?

5. [+54, -2] A company worth of 570 billion is in deficit of 4.4 billion and yet these stupid fangirls are worried about them ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+41, -42] They'll easily have a gain with an EXO comeback and a few tours overseas.

7. [+37, -0] It'll be TVXQ next year... They'll be on Japanese tours, then ㅠㅠ I stan Korean artists but the way they promote makes me feel like I stan Japanese artists.

8. [+37, -6] Honestly, SM makes money from TVXQ and SHINee's Japanese promotions. With that, they push other artists and get by. They're just a mediocre company.

9. [+35, -1] It's fine since TVXQ is coming back. They're starting Japanese tours in the second half of the year. There's EXO as well ㅋㅋ

10. [+34, -0] They're releasing too many SM Stations when it doesn't even bring money... Also the solos like Seohyun, Hyoyeon, Luna, and Amber cost so much but bring no money.
