Korean grocery giant E-mart and SM Entertainment are reportedly in discussions for a collaboration.
On February 2, a representative from E-mart revealed that they are considering collaborations on developing products that utilize the strengths of both companies. The representative stated, “The collaborations we’re discussing would combine E-mart’s distribution know-how and SM Entertainment’s culture contents.”
Should the collaboration get the green light, it is likely that shoppers will see some of SM’s brands – namely, their artists like Super Junior and EXO – on E-mart products. However, E-mart has made clear that this plan is currently only in the discussion stage.
E-mart stated, “It’s true that a collaboration with SM Entertainment is in the works, but so far we haven’t worked out any details regarding what sort of products will be made.”
What are your thoughts on such a collaboration?
