Notes on a Scandal: What Can SM Entertainment Learn from 2014?

Notes on a Scandal: What Can SM Entertainment Learn from 2014? Written by Kelsey On July 30, 2014

All is not well in the house of SM Entertainment. To be fair, 2014 thus far has given us a host of scandals across the entertainment companies, but SM has had more than a full plate of controversies, most of which have been handled really, really poorly.

I’m sure the big wigs in the management offices have asked each other the question we’re mulling over now: how can so many things go wrong in a such a short time period?

Over the course of just seven months, SM Entertainment has lost grip of the strict, faithful schedules and procedures by which they have always done their business.

These scandals give the public even more reasons to hold SM accountable for their actions, and if there’s anything that the Great Scandal Season of ’14 has offered, it’s that SM is fundamentally failing at managing their idols

Yoona Graces the Cover of Fashion Magazine Sure

By in News posted Oct July 19th, 2014 No comments

Girls’ Generation member Yoona has landed on the August cover for fashion magazine Sure.

Yoona, who is busy with fulfilling her busy schedule by traveling between Japan, China and Korea, did a photo shoot in a quiet studio in Itaewon. While always displaying serious facial expressions or doing chic poses, Yoona ended up comfortably smiling. Yoona was said to have enjoyed the pictures that contained natural parts of her daily life, and she was actively immersed in the filming as she meticulously monitored herself.

All of a sudden, it is Yoona’s eighth year in the industry. While her flexible image is the same as ever, an aura of an actress whose expressions and emotions have deepened to the next level is mixing with her image. You can see Yoona’s “ordinary” and natural beauty on the cover of Sure’s August edition and in the “Dreaming Daylights” pictorial
