SMROOKIES

This is your one-stop shop for everything SMROOKIES!  As I pick up new information on SM's pre-debut group, I'll update the page.

Check out their Facebook page and Official Website!

SMROOKIES is a part of SM's new "Co-Creation" system.  Fans will be able to participate in preliminary events and showcases before their official debut.  The rookies will have the freedom to form different groups with each other, and show their day-to-day lives and practices to their fans.  These rookies will also participate in concert and variety shows to win the hearts of fans.  We can also expect covers of songs by their company's seniors and their own originally composed songs in open performances to showcase their talents. (Soompi)

One by one the Rookies were released through Facebook.  A few music clips, dance clips, and casual clips were also released on SM's YouTube Channel.  After the opening of their official website, the avenue to introduce new Rookies was switched over.  They plan to release webisodes and pictures as the Rookies strive to show the public their talents.

Consisting of three SMROOKIE Girls - Irene, Seulgi, and Wendy - and a fourth, previously unknown, member Joy, SM is debuting a new girl group, RED VELVET (레드벨벳).  As long as SM updates their ROOKIE profiles with Red Velvet material (their teaser is also posted under "SHOWCASE"), I will treat them as 'ROOKIES' and continue to update here.




I will try and sub the first webisode, but as you know, listening and then understanding is my weakest skill when it comes to Korean.  ㅠㅠ  At the very least I can sub the graphics on the video...

Note:  Some people seem to think that the girl to the right is either Wendy or Irene.  However, she is definitely the girl in the SMTOWN WEEK video.  She can't be Irene because her nose is too short and her eyes aren't wide enough.  She also can't be Wendy because her cheekbones aren't right and her face is too round.
