Surprisingly, S.M The Ballad’s “Don’t Lie” and “Hot Times” audio teasers did not make me want to cry in front of my laptop like a true Korean ballad should.

Regardless, their sound is definitely promising and I’m genuinely looking forward to their album – well, in comparison, nothing close to how much I’m hoping it’s Saturday already to Hyunbin in “Secret Garden”, but it’s all relative.

And did I say something positive out loud about SM talents?!?! And did I say talents not fabricated idols?!?! It must be the holiday spirit.

Check out the teasers below.
