Shorts: Music Shows and Languages

With Super Junior-M's recent stage on M! Countdown! in Chinese, I am starting to see the door opening (if ever so slightly) to mainstream performances in Chinese on Korean music shows.  While it has been done before (I believe there was a Japanese group who performed on a music show once) I'm starting to see this happen more frequently.  First with a few TimeZ and EXO-M stages in Chinese and now with Super Junior-M.  It certainly helps that Super Junior-M and EXO-M have SM backing them with the influence and power needed to get a group onto a music program.
I think maybe in the future we will see more groups performing in Chinese.  Who knows, this might open the door to frequent performances in English. :)
