1. [+530, -42] Lee Sung Soo himself was all up in Lee Soo Man’s behind up till last year. It wasn’t until Kakao came in and promised him money that he stuck a knife in his back. He’s not doing this out of justice for his artists. Though I’m not going to say Hybe is the better choice either.
2. [+336, -29] Kakao’s getting dirtier with the media play ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ taking empty statements and trying to spin them as if they’re supporters of Kakao
3. [+270, -37] Quite amazing of Hybe if you think about it… it only took them one group to gobble up one of the top 3 companies that has led the industry for 10 years ㅋㅋㅋ
4. [+196, -8] Just because the SM artists aren’t mentioning Lee Soo Man doesn’t mean they’re on Kakao’s side ㅎ I just took it as them choosing to be cautious right now
5. [+93, -16] The only thing fans care about is that their artists not getting caught in the crossfire like this. Articles like this disgust me.
6. [+18, -1] I don’t know why people are so worried about Hybe. If you look at how they’ve been managing their other subsidiaries, they’ve allowed them to retain their original images. SM’s fight is only a battle of power right now… and maybe Hybe is better for that since they’re also an entertainment company. We don’t need conglomerates like Kakao sticking their hands in where it’s not needed~
7. [+15, -0] …? I don’t think the SM artists are trying to say anything…?
8. [+5, -0] Kakao is better off trying to convince their shareholders than the public like this… because this will ultimately come down to whether the shareholders want Hybe or Kakao ㅋㅋㅋ and Kakao knows they’re going to lose to Hybe, which is why they’re resorting to cheap media play like this

1. [+1,718] Hybe fans don’t want this either so us Hybe fans will try to hold Shi Hyuk back and you SM fans can try to hold Soo Manie back
2. [+708] I wish SM wouldn’t go to Hybe or Kakao at all…
3. [+149] Imagine how bad things must be for them to leave him out now
4. [+203] I’m just wondering why SM is so okay with Kakao? They’re also pouring money into the company, you don’t think they’re going to start making their own demands? Kakao’s no better than Hybe in the end, no?
5. [+61] I wish SM would go back to their 2010 days…
6. [+142] Antenna, Edam, and Starship are all under Kakao but no one gives them crap about “Chinese investments” so why is everyone up in arms about SM being sold to China through Kakao… and by the way, the true pro-China lover is Lee Soo Man himself. He’s the one who refuses to give up on having Chinese trainees and dreaming up China to be as big as Hollywood. His own greed is leading to his own demise…
7. [+47] I see some comments talking as if Kakao is better for SM because Hybe will limit them in music creativity and freedom but exactly which of Hybe’s subsidiaries look like they’re being limited…? All of their labels have been able to retain what makes them unique so it’s ridiculous that some of you are spreading such blatant lies ㅎㅎ I know not everyone is going to like Hybe but you have to understand that a group like New Jeans wouldn’t even be born right now if Hybe was limiting all their labels like you’re claiming. Hybe has shown nothing but complete support for Min Hee Jin and her visions, which Min CEO herself has said in interviews.
8. [+109] I think people need to realize that there would be no SM at all without Lee Soo Man. SM is not a company that was founded by many but by Lee Soo Man alone. Even if he ran his company wrong, it’s still his company, and a company that wouldn’t exist today without him.
– [+44] He shouldn’t have gone public then
9. [+16] Yeah, well, Hybe fans don’t want you either so please don’t come to us
– [+5] For real, it’s not only SM fans who don’t want this Hybe deal, us Hybe fans don’t want it either
10. [+38] Honestly, Aespa and NCT are still young so I can see them just doing whatever the staff tell them to do or following the vibe of their company.. ㅋㅋ
