Yeah, we're that famous.
These 12 handsome boys who make girls swoon over them at a glance, has managed to reach that level of fame where they're able to open up their own store. Called 'BOY WHO CRIED WOLF' located at Outlab in Shinsadong, Seoul, the store will offer collaborations with EXO and Korea's most famous street fashion names. The store will be launched in August 10. Once again, SM has found a way to shake the paper out of its walking wallets.

Talking to you, SM.

I'm pretty sure we're all familiar with celebrities launching their own brand of perfume, shoes, and such-- but...a store? Okay... knowing SM, one t-shirt that says 'Naega Wolf' will probably cost approximately...123456789 won? I mean, their merchandise is already costly enough to suck their fans dry at concerts and they now seem to believe that most fans seem to not get enough of the 'bankruptcy', so they're putting it all in one place so that they can spend their parents money more frequently. SM cares so much for their fans. Got your allowance fellow EXOtic living in Seoul? Lucky for you, right around the corner there's a place where you can spend it all in one shot, regardless of how hard your parents worked for it.
Yeah that's right. And hard.
I really don't get how far SM will go until they're satisfied. I mean it's one thing asking 60 bucks for a flimsy scarf with SNSD's faces 'skillfully' plastered all over, but it's another thing dedicating a store to a group who's only a year old--and on top of that, slamming the prices down as if money came as easily as water... well, apparently for you it does. 
I'm really not feeling this. I slightly understand if it's someone like SNSD, SHINee, or f(x)- but like I mentioned before, a group you only debuted under your wing a year ago? Well, if they're that successful, I guess it won't hurt anybody. Hm? What's that I hear? Is that the sound of crying coming from a victimized parent?

  1. 1st NO one can Control to satisfy a person addiction
    like AKB48 fans.. they bulk buying 300-3,000+ Copies just to support them..


    Satisfaction is always top priority...but..


    Now the reality ..


    I read somewhere about EXO expensive Pencil ?..8$ ..
    as fan you must be wise too because DUH ..its just a pencil.


    but anyway i remember reading at NB about fans complaining about the price of SM merchandise ..but well .if theres no such thing is this world easy LIFE..

    It's really ridiculous, asking so much for things you can get much cheaper.

    I agree.




    . if you can't afford then work..save money for it..if you think its not practical to have 30$ TOWEL of SNSD.. then don't have it..

  4. There are also websites out there that let you customize your own T-shirts, towels, etc. for less.

  5. well i can understand the needs of the fans wanting to own everything that related to their idols...and most of them would probably said that they want to help their beloved oppa...but i doubt that the money will go all the way into their pockets...1 or 2 percent maybe? but the rest will definite go to SM...even if they said that they've already changed the terms in their contract but SM is SM...and they never stick to whatever they said...never...
