Here are the thoughts of HYBE’s Korean fans about the SM acquisition

What do HYBE fans think of the SM acquisition?

Is it half and half?

1. Even if I care about it, nothing will changeㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I just need HYBE idols to be treated well….

2. Honestly, I think HYBE is just a parent companyㅋㅋㅋ I think the label is more like a companyㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. I think it would be great if they could stop acquiring and invest more in their idols~ I don’t really care

4. I don’t care

5. No problem, HYBE’s acquisition is the nth time nowㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ When HYBE acquired another company for the first time, the fans were worried about affecting the artist, but now that they’ve even acquired Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s companies, I bet the fans don’t even care…

6. Well, I wish they didn’t do that. I wish they spent more money on HYBE idols

7. I don’t care, I hope they focus more on managing HYBE artists

8. I don’t know, I’m just busy with my idols

9. I have no interest in it but honestly I don’t want them to make a fuss just because they take over SM but I just want the existing HYBE artists to be properly taken care of

10. No one cares about it!

11. I don’t care if it doesn’t affect HYBE idols

12. It’s just that they take over again, it’s not particularly exciting

13. Whatever it is, please finish it quickly

The only people I’ve seen care are sm fans and the occasional kpop fan crying about monopoly all of a sudden as if there wasn’t before

honestly as an army I don’t like it, but I haven’t liked hybe for awhile now so I don’t trust their shady ass with even minor decisions much less big ones.


its about time to unclench dont you think. they get more diverse money means less burden for the boys means boys do anything they want with less care of keeping the company running. i honestly dont get why “army”, out of anybody, get so offended.

stop taking akgae’s job, what they gonna do if you out here popping your brain instead of them. go watch hoseok’s docu ATTENTIVELY its out already and, for goodness sake, chill.


Its cringe that kpop fans are so invested in the happenings of the company. Sm stans the og company stan. I would rather hybe just let sm implode on its own bug business is business….no feelings in either direction bc i stan 1 group and dgaf about “monopoly” or kpop

It is what it is

I only care about my 97 line 😔


Same sentiment


2. Honestly, I think HYBE is just a parent companyㅋㅋㅋ I think the label is more like a companyㅋㅋㅋㅋ

And too bad that it seems SM employees, professional adults/Industry insiders, seem to be less aware of this than fandoms.

To have SM as SM, meaning being different from what they already have, it’s way better for HYBE. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the reasons HYBE would want SM is to adding in diversity of their portfolio.

Yet SM employees being crying abt losing SM ‘legacy’/own color, blahlbahlbah.



Just enjoying the drama + sm stans tears


Going on twitter the day it was announced that Hybe had become a majority shareholder in sm was a lot of fun. There were sm stans whining bitterly all over the place, calling for their fav to get out of that company and picking fights with any stan from a hybe group, especially Army, poor deluded people.


we joke about them being stuck in 2016, never thought we’d see the full display all day all week hsksksk


I don‘t care as long as it doesn’t change the value of the artist that were under Hybe before that


For me, the so-called professional adult men acting so messy and dramatic is the main reason I’m really paying attention to what’s been going on. Besides that, my stance has been that as long as it doesn’t negatively affect my favs, idgaf what happens.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
