Most recently, SM Entertainment announced the news of their Sustainability Movement forum that will be held in January. This forum, which will be held on January 1, 2023, will discuss the role of K-Pop and Hallyu, which have a global influence, in the climate change problem facing modern society and the sustainable development of the Earth.
Experts in each field, such as forum, culture, environment, and society, will be invited to the event, and SM artists will also be watching together online. This forum will be held under the theme of Humanity & Sustainability, starting with keynote speaker executive Producer Lee Soo Man and professionals from various fields.
In addition, EXO’s Suho will be one of the panelists for the special talk after the forum and plans to use his experience as an artist to tell honest stories related to K-Pop and the sustainable development of the earth.
Netizens however could not help but notice the expressions of the SM artists in the background of the photos.
- “Top of the class freshman, returning student assistant.”
- “You can tell just how long they’ve been at SM by their expressions.”
- “Wendy and Shotaro at least pretend to look like they’re listening but Kangta really looks like he doesn’t want to tune in haha. Shotaro looks like a freshman that chose the wrong class.”
- “I bet Kangta is on Twitter with his phone in the hand that’s not showing haha.”
Meanwhile, this forum will be broadcast for free online worldwide through YouTube and various platforms on January 1 at 12 PM KST. Following the forum, the SMTOWN LIVE 2023: SMCU PALACE@KWANGYA, will be held from 1 PM KST.
