Editorial that talks about how variety shows are throwing in random idol guests for the sake of viewer ratings when they don't really work with the program or the cast at all. The article uses EXO as an example, saying, "SM's rookie idol group EXO is busy trying to get their faces known wherever they can. Their guesting on 'Immortal Song' should be considered an aegyo, as they've also been on 'We Got Married' with Taemin as well as on 'I Live Alone' as Kang Ta's juniors. EXO fans may be happy to see their oppas everywhere but there's much to be questioned in how much they actually helped Taemin and Kang Ta on their respective shows."

Lee Joon's guesting on 'The Human Condition' is also used as a random guesting that didn't really do much for the show, instead bringing down the cast since they have to adjust to him being there, etc.

1. [+611, -45] I really think agencies need to stop sticking in their labelmates together on every show. SM is guilty of this especially.

2. {+759, -279] I just really don't want to see those EXO or whatever kids on TV anymore

3. [+502, -91] SM needs to stop the 1+1 deal. You turn on the TV and there isn't a channel SM isn't on. They're going way too far.

4. [+44, -6] I don't even get why EXO is everywhere considering nobody aside from teen girls knows who they are...

5. [+40, -8] As someone who enjoys 'The Human Condition', Lee Joon's guesting was a bit random but it was still good to see him get along with the original cast.

6. [+37, -4] EXO is seriously everywhere. Infinity Challenge, I Live Alone, WGM, Star King;;; Their agency is definitely pulling strings from the back. I feel bad for the opportunities they're taking away from other rookies and debuts.

7. [+33, -13] EXO is going to be on Infinity Challenge next week so I guess I'll be skipping that episode

8. [+29, -6] People are already causing a fuss over EXO being on Infinity Challenge next week.. I wish variety shows would just focus on entertainment. They don't need idols to entertain viewers.

9. [+29, -5] Idols just have way too many hardcore fans~ You say one thing and they're all on you

10. [+24, -2] SM is trashing their own image
