Meet SM Entertainment’s ‘Avenger K-Pop Idol Group,’ SuperM!
We know that K-Pop has became well known globally now, and many new idol groups debut from various agencies every year. Some of those groups end up disbanding since they don’t get enough recognition from the public, which means they don’t earn any income, at all.
But there are also those groups who are successful right now, domestically, or even gain global popularity. From this matter, one of the Big 3 agencies decided to make a brand-new project with the western market in mind. Yep! They are SM Entertainment, who just debuted their first unit group, with different members included from the existing groups in the company.
Are you curious to know more about it? Without any further ado, let’s hop into our topic for today. Introducing, SuperM!
Self-Titled EP, SuperM
Before their official debut announcement, SM Entertainment already had a plan to debut a ‘K-Pop Super Boy Band’. Then, on August 7, 2019, Steve Barnett, the chairman of Capitol Music Group, along with SM Entertainment founder Lee Soo Man, announced that the name of the group would be ‘SuperM.’ The SM founder described the group as ‘The Avengers of K-Pop’, and the group would be focusing more on their performance-based music.
They continued to explain that ‘M’ from the ‘SuperM’ stands both for Matrix and Master, with each of the seven members already being an established star in their own band, before. When the teasers for the members were revealed, each of them had performance, vocal, and rap abilities.
