(On uncertainty due to the issue surrounding SNSD’s 3 members not re-signing) SM’s share prices had gone down but just as quickly, recovered and for 2 days, even rose, due to bigger expectations for TVXQ.
On the morning of the 10th, SM prices had fallen but by closing, had recovered. Analyst Lee Ki-Hoon from Hana Securities said: TVXQ, Super Junior and other male groups’ Japan activities have great importance to SM Entertainment’s finance results. With the discharge of TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho followed by Choikang Changmin, and high anticipation for the resumption of their activities, is expected to have an influence on the rise of the share prices.
