[ +2102 / -77] This is something I highly disagree with..;;;
[ +1581 / -58] This is way too much…
[ +467 / -8] This is a promotion that is already happening with Japan’s AKB48. I don’t think it would work in Korea’s fandom culture where we think exiting = betrayal and gain fan = antifans.
[ +465 / -9] Are there too many trainees awaiting their debut?
[ +368 / -15] Freely to exit and join hahahahaha This is a mess.
[ +363 / -18] Why is he trying to be Steve Jobs all of a sudden… The more promotion added to their predebut, the bigger mess it is. I hope they can handle this…
