Reactions to SJ and SNSD’s Appearance on ‘Music Trip Lalala’

snsj

There have been many opinons on the appearance of Super Junior and SNSD on MBC’s ‘Music Trip Lalala,’ especially on their homepage bulletin board.

On the 25th, Super Junior and SNSD appeared on ‘Lalala,’ following the theme of  ‘Sounds Like Teen Spirit.’ From Super Junior, Leeteuk, Kangin, Yesung, Sungmin, Donghae, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun performed, and from SNSD, Taeyeon, Jessica, Tiffany, Sunny, and Seohyun. The two groups sang each other’s hit songs such as ‘Sorry Sorry’ and ‘Gee’ in a different style.

The problem is that the fans of ‘Lalala’ are becoming disappointed in the program. So far, ‘Lalala’ had a concept of having the best quality music, with singers like Lee Seungyul, Lee Janghyuk, Black Skirt, and more skilled musicians who aren’t widely known. As a program that is broadcasted at a late hour, it is true that it’s free from the competition of viewers’ rates.

However on the 25th, Super Junior and SNSD appeared together as idol groups from the same company. Technically, idol singers are put into the category of musicians, but compared to the quality of their music, their commerciality is more considered and emphasized. On the 18th, singer Son Dambi appeared, but Shin Munhee, Jiteun, and Ran appeared also, keeping a balance in the commerciality.

That is why on ‘Lalala’s internet bulletin board, there are many voices speaking up. Many opinions such as “Lalala has given up” and “Will Lalala break down like this?” are on the bulletin board. However, there are other remarks opposing them, saying, “A skilled idol group’s appearance” and “Let’s break the stereotype of idol groups.”

I don’t know what their problem is but I thought Super Junior and SNSD did a great job singing live in that show. They may be idols but they have impressive vocals like the rest of the other musicians, too.  Sigh. Guess you can’t please everyone.

Anyway, according to reports, the appearance of Super Junior and SNSD on ‘Music Trip Lalala’ boosted the show’s ratings. The rating was 3.2% which is actually high for a show aired at midnight. This is higher than their previous 3 episodes wherein they only got 1.7% (June 3), 1.4% (June 10) and 2.1% (June 17).

SJ, SNSD on ‘Music Trip Lalala’

Super Junior together with SNSD guested on MBC’s ‘Music Trip Lalala’ last June 24 for a special episode of ‘Sounds Like Teen Spirit’. They’re the first idol groups to appear on the show.

Both groups practiced for at least one month and as a result they were able to do covers of famous movie OST such as Notting Hill’s ‘She’ and 200 Pound Beauty’s ‘Beautiful Girl’ without any problem. Highlights of the show is Super Junior doing an acoustic cover of SNSD‘s ‘Gee’ and the latter doing ‘Sorry Sorry.

Osotspa Co, a leading consumer-product conglomerate, is considering expanding the production capacity of its 12 Plus personal-care brand over the next one to three years if Asian economies recover.Marketing director Vichien Santimahakullert said sales of its 12 Plus personal-care products had grown continuously over the past few years after it hired members of Super Junior, a famous Korean boy band, to be its presenters.

Therefore, Osotspa will spend 100 million baht to expand by 30% to 40% the production capacity of all 12 Plus product categories at its factory in the Lat Krabang Industrial Estate.

The additional capacity will serve both domestic and overseas markets.

“We have found that using Korean superstars as our presenters is very successful. Not only our sales increase, the brand image also improves to the international level. Therefore, it is possible to sign another contract with this Korean boy brand to promote our products overseas,” Mr Vichien said.

He said that based on the company’s survey, Korean superstars ranked first in terms of popularity among Thai teenagers, followed by Japanese and Thai performers. “We believe the popularity of Korean stars will continue among Thai teens.”

When the Korean boy band was hired to promote 12 Plus cooling powder and cologne for the first time two years ago, the local market share of the powder climbed to second from third or fourth place. “We also become the market leader in cologne,” Mr Vichien said.

Even in light of the current economic uncertainties, the company has allocated 500 million baht to promote all 12 Plus personal-care products this year. Of the total, about 150 million will be used to promote its new 12 Plus Mini Stick deodorant this year. The company will hire Thai actress Patchrapa ‘Um’ Chaichea, as well as Korean superstars from Super Junior including Choi Siwon, Kim Ryeo Wook, Han Geng and Kyu Hyun to become the new presenters.

Currently, the local deodorant market is worth about 1.58 billion baht. Of the total, about 1.05 billion baht is roll-on deodorant, 461 million baht comes fro the stick format and 73 million from spray deodorants.

With the launch of 12 Plus Mini Stick, the company expects to increase its market share to 16-17% from 10% currently.
