Last year, over 350 SM artists and staff went to Hawaii for a workshop, and also to celebrate the agency’s 20th anniversary.

This year, over 900 SM staff are headed to Jeju Island with artists like U-Know Yunho, Girls’ Generation, EXO, Red Velvet, and NCT.


Actors, models, and entertainers from SM affiliates such as SM C&C, ESteem Entertainment, and Mystic Entertainment will also be attending.

Some entertainers signed with SM C&C.

Not only will this workshop help the SM employees and artists grow, but it will also help the tourism industry of Jeju.

In the past, Jeju Island’s tourism industry boomed thanks to Chinese tourists, but after Korea embraced THAAD, numbers have dwindled.
