[GOSSIP NEWS] SM Entertainment idols taking lead roles in dramas stirs up argument on fairness0 11
Nowadays it's common to see idol turned actors on movies and dramas. However, it's still definitely uncommon to see them take lead roles only on their third, second, or even very first production. As this unusual case continued to occur with several SM Entertainment idols, an argument on fairness is taking over online communities.
In upcoming MBC drama 'Missing 9', EXO's Chanyeol will playing one of the superstars who ride on the airplane that ultimately crashes on an island. He may not be the main character, but he plays a crucial role. Another EXO member, Kai, will be taking the lead role in upcoming KBS drama 'Andante'. Netizens have already showered him with criticism for playing the main male character. And just yesterday, Red Velvet's Joy announced that she'll be playing the lead in upcoming tvN drama 'The Liar and His Lover'.
Netizens claim that idols turning into actors are not an issue. However, their jump start to the top is unfair. Some netizens claim that Chanyeol, Kai, and Joy's ability to land lead roles in dramas is an abusive use of power by SM Entertainment. It's also argued that it's unfair to rookie actors who struggle to take even small roles in productions. On the other hand, some netizens claim that SM idols have the right to take the lead roles as they too have worked hard for their roles.
Comments state, "Heol.. lead role? Isn't it the first time Joy is acting..? That's just too much..", "They don't deserve to be criticized but you know they're really given the 'golden spoon'", "It's an issue because they're playing lead roles from the start. Do you really think directors want to use idols for leads?", and more.
Do you think it's unfair that SM idols are landing so many lead roles in dramas?

The Top 10 selling albums of 20162 23
This album barely edged out Seventeen's 'Going Seventeen' (released last month) for the #10 spot. GOT7's album sales keep on increasing with each subsequent release.
EXO's repackaged albums always sell well.
The Chinese version of EX'ACT with very high sales.
The highest sales for a solo release on this list.
The highest sales for a sub-unit in 2016.
The only girl group on the list. No girl group in the past 10 years can compete with their physical album sales besides Girls' Generation.
BTS's popularity keeps on rising much like the hot air balloon depicted on their album cover.
EXO's Winter albums always sell well.
In terms of total volume (adding up all the sales from releases), EXO is still #1. However, they have been dethroned if you only measure the top selling album.
BTS broke two streaks. #1 EXO had the top-selling album for the past 3 years. #2 An SM artist had the top-selling album every year going back to TVXQ in 2008. It's remarkable that BTS has climbed up the ranks so quickly.
[NEWS] MBC Releases The Lineup For The 2017 Lunar New Year "Idol Star Athletics Championship"0 9
The highly anticipated semi-annual idol sports event is soon approaching! The ‘Idol Star Athletics Championship‘ or ISAC for short, brings together hundreds of idols, and has been one of the most highly anticipated programs since it’s Chuseok special began in 2010.
On the 6th, MBC revealed the list of those participating in the ‘2017 ISAC Lunar New Year Special.’ The full line up includes:
Male Groups — B1A4, B.A.P., EXO, NCT, SF9, NU’EST, Mad Town, MONSTA X, BTS, VIXX, VICTON, Seventeen, Snuper, ASTRO, UP10TION, IMFACT, KNK and TEEN TOP.
Female Groups/ Artists — AOA, EXID, Gugudan, LABOUM, Lovelyz, Red Velvet, Melody Day, MIXX, Berry Good, Brave Girls, SONAMOO, GFriend, Oh My Girl, Cosmic Girls, TWICE. FIESTAR, Jeon Min Kyung, Heyne and Rui.
Participants will get a chance to showcase their athletic ability, teamwork, and overall sportsmanship. It’s also a way for idols to get together and interact off the stage. Though these events are a great way for participants to shed their idol image and have fun in various sports, there has been previous concern over routine injuries. These injuries have brought up controversy due to concerns over idol’s health and schedule interference. This year’s event will incorporate previous sports activities like sprints, archery, rhythmic gymnastics, and relays but will also include a new event: male aerobics! The staff has selected games that have less chances of injuries due to concerns over health and safety. Hopefully this year’s ISAC will be a safe and injury free event!
The event will take place on January 16th at the Goyang Indoor Gymnasyium and will broadcast during the Lunar New Year holidays.
