fuck sm lmao. no promotions at all except music shows — and they’re not doing mcountdown and inki keeps getting cancelled. like at the bare minimum there should have been a weekly idol appearance since IDK THEY OWN THE COMPANY THAT PRODUCES IT NOW.

exo has been the top artist in the entire company for both album and ticket sales for the last several years and they only grow with each era and yet the promotions get smaller and smaller each time. I get that nct is the new priority and they probably want some fans to move on from exo to nct but trying to force a decline or whatever only makes the fans more stubborn and upset, so it’s backfiring on them big time.

That's... super weird. When are their contracts up for renewal? I have some SNSD-10th anniversary flashbacks and I don't like that

Yeah ia, it's weird and I wonder what's going on behind the scenes. Maybe the boys are over it what with Xiumin having to enlist soon and everyone kinda doing their own thing :/

i don't understand what's going on? do finished with his drama so i don't think it's a matter of the members being busy. plus fansigns help with sales (although it's very impressive they already sold so much without many fansigns) so what's the issue?
u_know 8th-Nov-2018 03:35 pm (UTC)
This is really weird. Only two music shows? Barely any promo?
vintage_boom 8th-Nov-2018 04:09 pm (UTC)
They’re on music shows his week too

This doesn’t bother me at all tbh the complaints are so ott outside of omona. Some twitter fans were actual claiming that the members having time to see family, take care of pets, and make time for hobbies was a BAD THING 🙃

They haven’t actually announced anything either way about what’s happening with DMUMT, just that this is a last fan sign so this is not something i feel inclined to be personally stressed about right now.
normanikordei 8th-Nov-2018 04:34 pm (UTC)
there’s definitely two extremes though. you mentioned one but also people who are saying more promotions (aka variety which is what most fans want) would overwork them is ott also.

it couldn’t hurt to throw in a fun idol room broadcast or knowing brothers and the members have said they want to do it! it just is a disappointment to many people when they see other idol groups having full scale promotions with that kind of content and exo doesn’t have that. I’m definitely disappointed, I would love to see them having fun on a variety broadcast. I know individually they were busy leading up to this, but it CAN be done.

at this point i'm grateful if a top group promotes longer than 2 weeks. feels like all the super popular groups only promote one or two weeks and then call it quits.

I've honestly never felt this disheartened as an EXO fan. I've been with this group for 5 fucking years and this is the angriest I've been.

We waited a whole goddamn year with shifted promises for a comeback.We finally get one, with promises of promos and fans go above and beyond to make the comeback a success.And now,a week later-we've had two music show stages. That's fucking it.

Fuck SM.They'll never do right by EXO.I'm not asking for them to be worked into the ground like growl era but a radio gig or tv show is not too much to ask for.

I'm right there with you sister

i'm disappointed bc this album is just such good fucking quality and it deserves to be promoted right.

ppl on twitter are way too ott but we've waited for more than a year and it does feel like sm doesn't care anymore bc they know fans will support exo still, and that's unfair.

how hard is for sm to send them to some variety shows, idrc about fansigns or music shows at this point, i just wanna see them play some games and laugh their asses off i'm tired of this

Lay continues being the only one promoting EXO more than SM at this point and actually doing what he wants. While SM keeps the rest just trapped it seems. And then SM wonders why people leave!

Kind of ironic, isn't it?
ggumd 8th-Nov-2018 11:12 pm (UTC)
*laughs in sone* seems about right for sm’s fuckery i honestly dont understand why they put such minimal effort for groups that are not suju (WHY do they still get so much gigs and albums???) or nct.

but its still not as bad as holiday night promos or any of the recent abismal promos done for snsd, ive read that exo has a reality show coming up and unit promos so its fine tbh exols on twitter have been so ott lol
merlugd 9th-Nov-2018 12:19 am (UTC)
Lol. And...just now they see it? Like ok, i can believe it from tht one girl who works for SM but to see so many others disappointed surprised me a lot. I mean I admire whoever has that much faith, especially on SM.
The album is great, hope the fans could somehow promote it more.
honey_baymax 9th-Nov-2018 01:15 am (UTC)
Although I'm the type of fan that doesn't keep up or watches everything they have been on, I can see why others are disappointed. SM doesn't have a good track record. How many times have we heard the members say that they want to do more variety shows and promote more but it never happens. Of course no exo-l wants them to be overworked, but having waited this long for this little promo is frustrating.

I saw them trending for a while on Twitter worldwide and prepared for the worst, but yeah SM sucks as per usual. Yada yada if they actually tried maybe we wouldn't be dealing with this rn. Man, if EXO were in a similar company like Bighit they would be HUGER than they already are smh. I feel for the fans truly, this is such a crappy situation.
dropit87 9th-Nov-2018 01:22 am (UTC)
This is my first EXO comeback so I'm not 100% sure what's normal. I'm just sad that I'll probably never get to see them tour :(
apathycollusion 9th-Nov-2018 01:56 am (UTC)
Lol hey gurl hey! Same here, I knew of them duh but was mostly neutral it wasn't KoKoBop made me step up and realize them. Suho did say he hopes to see all of the international Ex-ol's soon!!
