According to Newsen, SM Entertainment will be releasing another idol group for the first time in three years.
An insider has reported that SM Entertainment will be releasing a boy group, bringing together Korean, Japanese, and Chinese members in order to better reach out to a more international audience. The number of members have yet to be decided, however the group will be also working as units after their official debut.
SM Entertainment has not released a new idol group after the release of f(x) back in September of 2009. SM artists have grouped together to form the ‘SM the ballad’, but no new faces have emerged from the agency.
For the past two years, SM has been putting on SM TOWN LIVE concerts all over the world, spreading K-pop awareness in Japan, China, Southeast Asia, as well as crossing over to Europe, and completing successful sold-out shows in major American cities such as Los Angeles and New York.
SM Entertainment has successfully promoted their artists through their official SNS and Youtubechannel, and likewise, fans will be able to immediately receive updates on their new upcoming idol group through these sources as well. What’s garnering more attention is the fact that SME is breaking the current trend of girl groups and will be releasing an all-male idol group.

SHINee Shut Down the Britain’s Largest Theater Chain’s Server!
Britain’s Largest Theater Chain’s Reservation System Went Down Just 1 minute After the Ticket Sales Began!
Tickets for Opening Gala Concert of the 6th London Korean Film Festival, ‘SHINee in London,’ are all Sold out!
SHINee, the Icon of KPOP Wave in Europe, Proved Tremendous Popularity in London!
SHINee proved their tremendous popularity once again by crashing the Britain’s largest theater chain’s reservation system server.
SHINee will hold this gala concert after they are invited to ‘The 6th London Korean Film Festival’ and SHINee is the first Korean idol to hold a solo concert in London.
In fact, SHINee has already performed in AbbeyRoadStudios (famous for studio of Beatles) in June as the first Asian artist, but it was intended for media and music officials and held in private. However, since this performance is the first solo gala concert in London, which is open to fans, competition for tickets was expected.
Actually, as soon as ticket sales began for this concert on the 27th, Odeon’s reservation system, the Britain’s largest theater chain, went down for 5 hours because it was overwhelmed by the thousands of fans who were trying to buy tickets.
Therefore, not only the reservation for SHINee’s concert but also reservation for other movie tickets of hundreds of theaters in Britain was unavailable. Fans made reservation through phone calls or visited the theater to get the tickets after waiting for long lines. Local audiences, who wanted to buy other tickets, unusually reserved them by phone or purchased on site.
Odeon said “It’s our first time to make server down by ticket booking. We never expect this much of people coming in all at once,” and it is said that for SHINee fans’ safety, Odeon will develop measures to keep order at the theater.
SHINee will perform their hit songs including ‘Replay’ ‘Juliette’ ‘Ring Ding Dong’ ‘LUCIFER’ etc. and have an interview session at this gala concert.
Meanwhile, SHINee will leave for the opening gala concert ‘SHINee in London’ of ‘The London Korean Film Festival’ which will be held in London, Britain on November 3rd.
