SuperM is set to release their 1st full album titled “Super One” on 25th September. They dropped their track “100” on 14th August and are currently preparing for another song called “Tiger Inside” early next month.
However, a number of fans have taken to social media to express their concerns over the members, particularly Baekhyun (백현)’s health. Many fans have been worried as the idol looked extremely worn out in the clip.

Yesterday (27th August), SuperM greeted fans via Instagram Live, revealing that they were gathered to practice their upcoming song. As seen in the video, fellow EXO teammate Kai brought the viewers behind-the-scenes to see Baekhyun who was lying on the couch.
In the video, the “Candy” hit-maker looked so tired that he couldn’t open his eyes! “I’m so sleepy,” he said as the camera approached him. Many also noted his lack of energy even though he tried his best to show his bright side.
After discovering this, many angered K-pop fans all over the world voiced their disappointment by trending the hashtag #SuperMDisbandParty on Twitter. Most of them pointed out the group’s hectic schedules as one of the major factors that affected the members’ poor condition.
Despite that, there are also a few who spoke out against the hashtag. In this case, they argued that the use of the word “disband” might be misinterpreted by others. Others also urged SuperM’s home label, SM Entertainment, to take a better care of their artists’ welfare.
For those interested, check out some of the comments left by them below:
Not only kaibaek but all member. Can you see it clearly? They're all so tired. Prioritize your artist health before anything else. They're not robot! Don't make them your money machines, they're need to rest pic.twitter.com/z4GR7Yafkl

#SuperMDisbandParty ? Shouldn't we support what they do? Do u want them to feel useless for working hard bcus there's no support from u and instead want them to disband? I know yall're worried about their condition and health, but Idt we should ask for disbandment. pic.twitter.com/434la5K3uh
