Kangta, Hyoyeon, Sulli, and Krystal Regretted Joining SM At One Point


Kangta, Girls’ Generation‘s Hyoyeon, f(x)‘s Sulli and Krystal recently confessed that they regretted joining SM Entertainment at one point in their careers.

At 7pm on April 30, the showcase for SM Town‘s new movie, I Am,” was held at the CGV theater in Seoul. The whole SM Town family was gathered, including Kangta, DBSK, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, SHINee, and f(x).

SM Town’s new movie, “I Am,” is a documentary film that features the behind-stories of the artists of SM Entertainment. Comedian Byun Ki Soo was the MC of the night, and started several activities with the keyword “I Am.”

One of the activities was a quiz, where one of the questions was “I’ve regretted joining SM Entertainment once,” and the artists had to pick an O for yes, and X for no. Kangta, Hyoyeon, Sulli, and Kyrstal were some of the few who picked an O.

First, Kangta revealed, “During my trainee days, I never ordered anything more expensive than jjajangmyun (Korean noodles with black bean paste).” He continued, “Once, Tony Ahn (of boy band H.O.T.) ordered fried rice with japchae (Korean noodles with vegetables and meat), and I got scolded for two days. I started regretting [joining SM] then.”

Sulli revealed, “After being a trainee since I was in 5th grade, I missed home the most. My home was in Busan, so I didn’t get to visit often, and I really missed my mom.”

Hyoyeon, similar to Sulli, said that she “was a trainee since [she] was very young. My house was three hours away from the studio. It was so hard, I started regretting it.” She added, “I really missed being able to play with my friends.”

Krystal confessed, “I didn’t like the fact that I had to be at the company every day.”

On other news, SM Town’s documentary film “I Am” will be released in theaters on May 10. The film will feature the SM artists’ dream-like experience of performing at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
