Netizens React To HYBE Calling LE SSERAFIM As Their “first” Girl Group Forgetting the Existence of GFRIEND

On May 2, the girl group “BTS sister” LE SSERAFIM officially debuted with the MV Fearless.

Right before debut, LE SSERAFIM met with many mixed opinions because member Kim Garam was accused of a violent past at school.

Despite public opinion, HYBE still let this member debut with a new girl group.

HYBE’s way of promoting LE SSERAFIM has once again created a lot of controversy.

LE SSERAFIM officially debuted with Fearless

Specifically, in a post about LE SSERAFIM’s new achievement, the management company did not hesitate to call this girl group “HYBE’s first girl group”.

This makes fans of GFriend and GLAM – two girl groups under the company unhappy.

Although they are not the groups that were launched by HYBE, but have joined HYBE, they are still the company’s girl group.

Strictly speaking, GLAM is the first girl group of HYBE when they debuted in 2012, before BTS, then disbanded because of member Dahee’s scandal.

Under HYBE, there are also GFriend and fromis_9, two girl groups that are “transferred” by the company.

In addition to causing controversy for ignoring the existence of previous girl groups to call LE SSERAFIM “the first girl group”, HYBE was repeatedly accused of neglect by Knet, causing GFriend to disband.

GFriend…
… and fromis_9 are both HYBE’s girlgroups

Some comments of Knet:

  • Don’t you dare to erase the traces of Bangtan too
  • HYBE please fail.
  • GLAM disappeared before Hybe so it’s okay, but GFriend is a group under HYBE, what’s with the term “first girlgroup”?
  • What happens to HYBE is that they will try to cover up everything.
