My biggest unpopular opinion is that SMtown's "live" concerts are terrible, and even worse than actual entertaining award shows. People were saying "now we know where aespa's budget for award shows went" NO! NO! We don't know! Just because they had an orchestra? That was it mate! It was just like those lack luster award show performances.
The budget was no where to be seen. And honestly, after the live I didn't even remember Aespa because of how boring they were and forgettable. Other performances were terrible as well, I don't know how to say this but SMtown's lives are overhyped! It's just music bank performances all bunched together.
I get it, it's online, but there's really nothing intresting going on as much as people like to credit SM. Everybody is lipsynching, the collab songs with other SM artists are terrible and boring. They did 5 ballads like who wants to hear that? There lives are lip syncing music shows performances and that's it! Sorry. SM is not a good company and obviously are incompetent and have made all their artists so boring! Lip synching and terrible choreography. That's all I saw.
