612450033

Girls’ Generation (SNSD) talked about the times when the group fell victim to the Black Ocean.

During March 17’s broadcast of SBS’s Healing Camp, the SNSD members guested on the show to share ‘SNSD’s Five Daebak Incidents.’

Explaining one of the five incidents, Yoona said, “At the time when we were promoting the first album Into the New World in 2007, we performed in Dream Concert, and faced ten minutes of boycott. We started performing in front of the dark audience without any lights or sound, as if no one was there.”

“When we went up to the stage, everyone had turned off their light sticks. We could only see the pink sticks from our fans,” reminisced the SNSD member.

Taeyeon also shared, “When we performed for SM Town concert in China, we saw some fans making the ‘X’ with their red light sticks,” to which Yoona added, “I thought they were making hearts at first, so I started performing harder,” bringing out laughter.


MC Yuri, who was a member of a first generation girl idol group, FIN.K.L, also shared her painful memories of the Black Ocean, saying, “The fans actually turned around in their seats. I had to perform by looking at their backs. But now I can understand why they did that. The female fans just really liked their male stars.”

50476097

Taking the next step into the future of the music industry, CJ E&M decided to incorporate the label system, bringing in CJ Music, Jellyfish Entertainment, Music Works, MMO (Music Makes One), and 1877 under its wings.

“The core focus of the label system is to strengthen the companies through the steadiness of investments. We decided that it would be hard to prepare for global competition with just simple monetary investments,” said CJ E&M on March 18. “For a steady music industry, we’ll continue the existing investments, but we’ll be creating a co-existing system in which we can take responsibility in production, distribution, marketing, and furthermore, global advancement with a label system.”

CJ E&M plans on expanding with companies that focus hip-hop, rock, and indie bands, as well as genres that focus on live performances and vocals.

CJ E&M’s new partners, CJ Music, Jellyfish Entertainment, Music Words, MMO, and 1877 holds artists such as Roy Kim, Son Ho Young, Jung Joon Young, VIXX, Sung Si Kyung, Park Hyo Shin, Seo In Guk, Yu Sung Eun, Baek Ji Young, Hong Dae Kwang, and more.

CJ E&M has plans to reach out to labels in and outside of Korea and plans on parntering up with 6 to 8 labels within 2014.
