Netizens aren’t happy with SM Entertainment‘s current female SMROOKIES members, regarding them as untalented as a whole.
In a post published on September 25th through the online community board Pann and titled “This is crazy, I just heard to SMROOKIES girls singing and…”, the original poster continues to complain, saying, “They’re all bad, especially Rami. They’re worse than then worst SM group ever….SM’s going down hilll….”
Currently, both boys and girls currently in SM Entertainment‘s SMROOKIES team – chosen trainees who are one step closer to making their official debut – are being featured in Disney Korea’s Mickey Mouse Club, getting exposed to the public. They include Mark, Hina, Herin, Donghyuk, Lami, Koeun, Jaemin, Jeno, and Jisung.
In early July 2015, Hina, Koeun, and Herin were announced to have joined SMROOKIES. This follows months after Irene, Wendy, and Seulgi – all previously SMROOKIES members – officially made their debut as part of Red Velvet in August 2014.

[+145, -2] SM Otakus don’t like Rookies either ㅋㅋㅋㅋ stop generalizing ㅋㅋㅋㅋ. I honestly thought up to Red Velvet was good ㅋㅋㅋ. Also there’s no guarantee the Rookies are going to debut.
[+137, -9] As an SM fan especially as a Sone. I sometimes wish I could see TVXQ as one, Super Junior’s old “Sorry Sorry” performance and SNSD’s “In To The New World” the way the girls sang it when they had just debuted. I miss “Nuna’s so pretty” from the way SHINee used to be and f(x) when they had just debuted….
[+104, -4] They don’t even look that great....
[+49, -1] I’m an EXO fan but for some reason I can’t bring myself to like Rookies. From TVXQ to RV I’ve never not like a single member but for some reason I don’t like the Rookies. Especially that scammer on Joong Go Nara. He CANNOT debut.
[+36, -0] You guys under estimate SM’s production power….they’re the top for a reason and it’s to early to judge…EXO and RV used to be criticized early to but look at now they all made it..
