While HYBE announced plans to take over SM Entertainment, opposition from internal employees is spreading online.

Recently, SM Entertainment (hereinafter referred to as SM) employees voted on the issue of HYBE's acquisition announcement through an anonymous online community in ablind survey.

In this survey, in which more than 200 employees participated, 85% of the employees expressed their support for the plan of the current management Lee Seong-soo and Tak Young-joon, and opposed the move to sell Lee Soo-man's stake.

The result spreads through online communities, making it possible to speculate on the internal atmosphere regarding teh opposition to HYBE's acquisition and the hardships of the employees.


In addition to voting on the survey, they are voicing out complaints such as "It feels like all of SM's history has disappeared", "My youth that I dedicated to SM has disappeared" and "SM doesn't listen to the voices of its employees".

1. What is this gonna change though? I'm asking because I don't know!!
> Honestly, nothing's gonna change since Lee Sooman still had the majority shares

2. So we're now taking opinions of employees that participated to a blind survey?ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. But the shares are already transfered. Isn't the situation inevitable even though there's opposition..??

4. Seriously, this just looks like Kakao doing overtime ㅋㅋ

5. ㅋㅋㅋ the media play has started. Then these employees can just buy the shares and give them to Kakao

6. Of course the employees are gonna oppose. They are all banding together with Lee Seong-soo

7. It's just a shame for the employees....

8. What is this? I thought that it was some official survey

9. Ah... a blind survey... of couse it's possible that this is the employee's opinion but writing an article about it...?

10. Journalists must be freaking excited by SM and HYBE nowadays
