1. [+524, -29] Jealous of SM fans...
2. [+465, -16] Wow... They're all going to Hawaii instead ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+142, -8] Better that they can take a break in Hawaii than go on IAC and risk getting injured. I want to congratulate SM for that decision.
4. [+29, -1] That's so good for them
5. [+26, -3] I wish JYP, YG, and Cube would schedule other things for Chuseok too so that we can all just boycott the IAC and finally get it taken off air.
6. [+7,884, -127] Wow, first time I'm jealous of SM artists
7. [+6,591, -117] No one even wants this show, please take it off air
8. [+3,557, -74] Yippeee
Pann: SM is making it easier for idols to date within the company...
"A co-ed vacation for their singers in Hawaii... most fans are saying they'd rather they attend IAC instead."
1. [+230, -20] Well this is going to be exciting for Kaistal
2. [+210, -16] All fans are praying right now...
(EXO fan post demanding that the members only do certain things in Hawaii barring dating activity: Xiumin better only work out in Hawaii, Chen better only sing in Hawaii, DO better only play Overwatch in Hawaii, Baekhyun better only play LoL in Hawaii, etc...)
3. [+185, -3] Hul ㅋㅋㅋ It's going to be weird if none of them got into a some together, especially after spending 3 nights and 5 days together ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
4. [+109, -13] I can imagine fans totally hating this. Even at IAC, fans are watching them like a hawk but still nervous that they're going to get into a some backstage in the waiting rooms or someplace ㅋㅋㅋ
5. [+103, -7] How exciting this must be for Kaistal ^-^
6. [+102, -3] I 100% assure you some of the SM singers are going to get into somes. Even college MT trips end up with new couples.
7. [+100, -3] SM is so lenient with dating ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ and it's so funny because every dating scandal they've had has been so bad for their image. Do they get some freaky joy out of this? They never benefit out of their dating scandals so why do they provide their idols opportunities for it?
8. [+97, -1] They're all hormonal, handsome, pretty people going on vacation for 5 days... it'd be weird if none of them developed feelings for one another in that time. I think we should all be ready for our bias to come back with a boyfriend or girlfriend... ha ㅜ
9. [+84, -6] I'm a fan but EXO really can't get into another dating scandal right now... I don't know what's going to happen to the group if they do. Three member leaves, two dating scandals, the fandom's already split into 8 and 9 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
10. [+84, -3] EXO better get ready to pay the consequences if they get into another dating scandal
11. [+59, -2] I want to be cool about it too but I've gone on school trips in college and have seen so many people couple up when they got back ... ㅜ
12. [+54, -2] Well Dispatch went all the way to London to catch Suzy and Lee Min Ho so I'm sure they'll follow them to Hawaii ㅋㅋ
13. [+45, -0] But SM revealed the location and the dates for their Hawaii trip in the media ㅋㅋㅋ this is no vacation for them, they'll be hanging out with paparazzi and sasaengs the entire time!
