With the amount of talent SM Entertainment houses, it’s no wonder the agency’s spinoff artists have garnered as much success as its billboard acts.
Unit groups may not be a novelty, but SM has shown that they can come in many shapes and forms and still cause a stir among K-Pop fans. So for this week’s poll, we want to know: Which SM spinoff artist is your favorite?
S.M. The Ballad
While idol groups are SM’s specialty, its talented vocalists took over the spotlight in project group S.M. The Ballad.
Composed of members Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, TRAX’s Typhoon, SHINee’s Jonghyun and Jino, the project group made its debut in 2010 with album Miss You.
Despite coming together from different nests, the boys’ voices proved to be the perfect blend.
Super Junior has spawned many unit groups, but members Donghae and Eunhyuk are set to return as duo Donghae & Eunhyuk (original, we know) with the release of its second single album I Wanna Dance in Japan on June 19.
Following the success of the trot-inspired single Oppa, Oppa, fans are curious to see what the duo will hit them with next.
Check out the Donghae & Eunhyuk′s I Wanna Dance below.
This next group didn’t promote, but the collaboration of SM’s top dancers was enough to drive fans wild and is certainly worthy of mention in this poll.
Super Junior’s Eunhyuk, SNSD’s Hyoyeon, SHINee’s Taemin, Super Junior-M’s Henry as well as EXO’s Kai and Lu Han joined forces as part of the Younique unit, a project group formed as part of SM Entertainment collaboration with Hyundai Motor Company, to release single Maxstep.
See what happens when K-Pop’s all-star dancers come together.
Super Junior-M’s Henry
As mentioned previously, this poll is about spinoff artists, and SM pulled a fast one on us, when it announced Super Junior-M member Henry’s solo debut this month.
The response to the Super Junior-M member’s single Trap has been hot, reminding us that the idol star and Master Chef Korea Celebrity contestant knows how to heat things up outside of the kitchen as well. And it certainly helps that Super Junior’s Kyuhyun and SHINee’s Taemin lend their talents to the track.
