[info] A New Concept SM Idol Group to Be Launched in May

SM is currently preparing to debut a new group of 7 Koreans and 5 Chinese, two separate teams under one group name.

They will start activities with the Korean and Chinese versions of the same song at the same time in Korea and China.

They are one group of 12 members in two teams.

They will debut in Korea and China in May.

Edit: “We are currently preparing to launch two new groups. One will consist of 7 Koreans and the other will consist of 5 Chinese members. The interesting thing about this is that the two groups will have the same name. Now we are planning to launch the groups simultaneously in Korea and China–singing the same song in two different languages. We plan to instigate this new idea of two separate groups that will be promoting two parts of one bigger group of 12 members this May.”

* Lee Sooman gave the lecture in Korean with his son as an interpreter. I transcribed the translated part.

A totally new concept of group. An upgraded version of Super Junior? Is this going to work? Whether it succeeds or not, SM’s innovative ideas and pioneering spirit are truly something…

  8. Sounds like another Suju concept. But yeah, like u said. An ungraded version since they’ll debut straight in China. SM sure is something.
