They’ve all been real so far.
Shindong was known for having good comedic timing and great potential to be an MC (show host). He did a lot of SM’s internal events too. Remember that Super Junior was meant to be an entertainment unit made up of dancers, actors, comedians and models rather than having them all be idol singers full-time. He also turned out to be a great dancer for his size.
Music shows wins are an easy proxy to measure the success of a group’s promotion cycle, by reducing things down to a single number. It isn’t that helpful for smaller groups or for groups that have other intentions. For example, Crayon Pop’s Bar Bar Bar didn’t clock that many music show wins but you cannot deny that they did very well in terms of establishing a name for themselves.
If a group can use a promotion cycle to get public recognition or support, it can be a good bank of empathy to draw upon on a follow-up promotion.
The parents of the individual, the individual and a rep of the company does. They get a copy of it themselves and they can seek legal counsel if they want. It’s nothing formal like “turn up at this date and you can’t leave the room until you read and sign the contract”.
Take the leap. Don’t worry about language.
Try traveling with a friend who’s experienced.
Once a year is a pretty good bet.
