[NEWS] SM ENTERTAINMENT REPORTS LOSS OF 4 BILLION WON FROM KARAOKE BUSINESS



It has been reported that SM Entertainment (SME) has lost a monstrous sum of 4 billion won (approx. US $3.7 million) in the last 4 years, which coincides with the company’s expansion into the karaoke business.

In 2006, SM Bravo, a company that specialised in karaoke machines, was incorporated as a subsidiary by SM Entertainment in order for SME to expand their operations into the karaoke industry. Additionally, SM Amusement, a different company affiliated with the karaoke industry, was added to the list of subsidiaries when SM Entertainment incorporated it in 2008.

At the time of this expansion, SM Entertainment had announced that they would revolutionize the karaoke industry with their expertise in the Korean and Asian music market, as well as their influential network-ability in Asia.

However, after four years into this expansion, there remains only two karaoke establishments that are operating somewhat effectively. Additionally, the value and worth of the subsidiary company’s are failing to increase despite continued investments.

To summarise the total loss made my SM Entertainment:
SM Bravo has invested a total of 6 billion won, but by end of August 2010 it was reported that only 3.4 billion won was what remained of the account, resulting to a loss of 2.4 billion won.
SM Amusement has invested a total of 1.4 billion won, but as per bi-annual report, the investment has gone down the drain with the total resulting to impaired/eroded capital.

As a result of the loss, SM Bravo will be undergoing a merge with SM Amusement, with an SME representative stating, “A remodelling of the karaoke business was necessary and hence we are in the process of merging the subsidiaries together. Once they have merged we will come up with a brand new business plan.”

Meanwhile, netizens have voiced their opinions, “Don’t they know what happens when you start carrying too many eggs in one basket?”, “So that’s where all the hard earned cash from their artists go to”, “What a waste of sweat and tears from SNSD, Suju, Shinee, F(x)”, and my personal favourite comment – “This is a classic example of a parent running down their business and making their kids earn the money for them. And when the kids hand over their hard earned cash the parents then spend it on useless things instead of paying off their debt. Once the kids start telling them to stop the nonsense, the parents then tell them not to bite off the hand that feeds them when it’s obvious that the kids are feeding themselves with their own hands.”

[TRANS] 101007 JYJ REAPS IN $6 MILLION IN ONE DAY!


The trio of JYJ, Hero Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, and Xiah Junsu, created a 6.8 billion Won ($6 million USD) record in one day, demonstrating their immense popularity.

The group’s debut album, “The Beginning”, which will be released on the 12th, is aimed towards a global advancement. The record was made due to the album pre-order numbers and tickets for the showcase at Korea University Hwajung Gymnasium.

With only 99 999 copies of the special luxury edition, a total of 400 000 orders were received, so under such an intense purchasing circumstance, everything has already been completely sold out.

Taking JYJ’s extreme popularity in account, the prices of the album were raised to 41 600 Won ($37 USD). Because the economy of the music industry isn’t in good conditions, JYJ’s popularity is still very alarming despite the fact that only 99 999 copies were planned to be sold. At the same time, pre-orders for the normal edition reached up to 200 000 on the same day. In total, the special luxury edition (4.1 billion Won) and the normal edition (2.7 billion Won) reached a total of 6.8 billion Won.

On October 5, starting from 8PM, the pre-ordering of tickets for the “JYJ Worldwide Showcase in Seoul” opened, completely wiping out the 11 000 seats in just 15 minutes. Ticket prices for the 3600 general audience seats sold to a total of 55 000 Won ($55 USD) and the 2000 reserved seats sold to a total of 44 000 Won ($40 USD), earning approximately 600 million Won ($0.5 million USD) for the two performances.

On another note, under the requests of fans who haven’t been able to order the album, the producing manufacturers have expressed, “we will consider releasing the special album in other different forms.”
