Super Junior’s Heechul criticizes own management agency


Super Junior’s Heechul expressed his honest thoughts regarding the drama production capability of his own management agency, SM Entertainment.

During October 10th broadcast of JTBC ‘Talk Battle’, the MCs analyzed the numerous South Korean dramas that were adapted from Japanese dramas. When the other MCs mentioned ‘To the Beautiful You’ as one of the failed dramas, Heechul was left feeling awkward, but still expressed his true thoughts about it.

Heechul criticzed the production environment adopted by SM Entertainment, “I told my agency that I would never do a drama produced by SM. There are teams of actors and singers in SM Entertainment. But the agency promotes actors too similarly to the way they promote singers. I actually made a few comments about this issue before.”

He went on, “You can only find SM actors in the music videos of the singers under the agency. However, it is great that they treat us as the best. They are the prettiest and most handsome, so why should we bring in anyone from the outside?”
