There was information about SuperM nominated for Grammy in the K-pop documentary, Knet was angry This group is so shameless

SuperM is a project group established by SM Entertainment in 2019, consisting of 7 members Taemin (SHINee), Baekhyun & Kai (EXO), Mark, Taeyong, Lucas, and Ten (NCT). Despite being known as the “superhero” of Kpop, SuperM has been controversial since its debut. They were accused of abusing bundle (selling items with music albums) to reach # 1 on the Billboard 200 when the US advanced.

Recently, the SM boy group again became the focus of controversy among Korean netizens after they appeared in episode 1 of the documentary K-Pop Evolution, produced by YouTube Originals. In the scene where SuperM appeared in episode 1, “The Birth Of K-Pop,” the quote’s content made many people think that they were nominated at the Grammy Awards: Billboard’s Grammy. ”

The documentary's quote is that "super Kpop group" SuperM ...

… was nominated for Billboard’s Grammy.

The fact is SuperM has never been nominated at the prestigious Grammy Awards. Up to now, BTS is the first and only group to do this in the history of Korean music. Moreover, many people still find it difficult to understand because the quote is “Billboard’s Grammy.”

Grammy is an award from the US National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, has nothing to do with Billboard. So the documentary production department K-Pop Evolution was criticized for “a square peg in a round hole,” causing viewers to misunderstand SuperM’s achievements and accidentally lower the unprecedented record of BTS. . However, someone also explained that the meaning of this sentence is that Billboard predicted SuperM to receive a Grammy nomination, unlike Knet misunderstood.

Although this is the production crew’s fault, SuperM was also dragged into the “stoning.” It seems that the bundle controversy or the use of BTS’s name to media play too much since debut has partly affected the reputation of the 7 “superheroes.” As a result, some people criticized the “brazen” group, even though they were not involved.

Knet commented:

  • The Birth Of K-Pop? Crazy… What the hell are they talking about?
  • How can they create this kind of Kpop video without any knowledge of Kpop?
  • What? Did the word “Grammy” have a different meaning?
  • What is this account for? Who produced these videos?
  • But what is Billboard’s Grammy?
  • Did they mistake the Billboard 200 for the Grammy Awards?
  • What? … Are you saying you made a documentary with all this misinformation? What are you doing?
  • I am a BTS fan, so that I can get mad …
  • It’s not a wrong translation; the quote is like that.
  • This group is so shameless.
