Tasty to Join SMTOWN Beijing Concert Lineup, Infinite Can’t Attend Due to World Tour

On August 19, a certain news agency reported that Infinite would be joining the line-up for an SM concert. However, SM C&C sources commented, “Infinite won’t be able to join the SM concert due to their world tour.”

The source continued, “Tasty will be attending the SMTOWN Beijing concert in October,” marking the first Woollim appearance in an SM event after the merge. However, Nell and Infinite will not be performing at the concert.

Previously, the public was put through a shock to hear the news of Woollim Entertainment merging with SM’s SM C&C to form Woollim Label on August 9. After many voiced their concerns over the Woollim artists’ futures, the agency assured that the artists’ music won’t change.

Infinite’s schedule after they return from their world tour is not yet decided and the public is yet to see Woollim’s top group perform on one stage with DBSK, Girls’ Generation and other SM artists.

do u want to know why..? it's bcoz , Infinite is the fastest rising/best star in asia .. they could make more thn 10 million US dollar per comeback within 2 1/2 years .. n their earnings are no kidding .. tht's why SM took them(woolim) to be apart of them(SM C&C)..tht's mean MAYBE they could make a lot of profits for SM to be a major music industry..big) is easy within 8y. .? SM needs more thn 10yrs to be a major company..oke..

My whole problem with this situation what's in it for SM. They would not just accept a merge without a great reward and I'm not sure for certain but SM doesn't need to buy out other entertainments because they are already the largest one.  Also the fact that Woolliment merged with SM kinda ticks me off. Woolliment was doing fine on their own but I can understand why they merged though so I can't be too mad.  I'm worried for Tasty because the fans are expecting SM artists which they technically are but it won't sit too well with the fans though.

I knew something like this would happen. Ugh! Sure Tasty, Infinite, and Nell would get more exposure, but who says the SM fans would like it, especially at a concert? Bad move man. Bad move.

Personally thinking from a business perspective, it's good that they did a joint business merge like this. 

It'll give Woolim a bit more financial boost to promote their other artists more instead of just squeezing it all more from their main powerhouse Infinite. It'll be good for Tasty to have this exposure too 

Even though fans are against, they need to think about from a more logical and business perspective. It's basically like how tons of other major music labels have been doing for years. Expanding in order to grow stronger.

O_O so they're part of SMtown now??? o___o omg, idk if I like this...it's just so weird!

on a very random note, I remember taeyeon from snsd saying her fave newbie boyband (at the time) was Infinite and bcuz of that Infinite was a big fan of her. i'm sure those 2 are happy they're now part of the same company technically. lol
