LE SSERAFIM performed their first 5-member performance with the exception of member Kim Garam, who was embroiled in allegations of school violence. This stage is getting a hotter response than the debut stage.
In SBS “Inkigayo“, which was broadcast on the 22nd, the figure of LE SSERAFIM who decorated the stage of “Fearless” as a five-member group without Kim Garam appeared.
The intro part, which was originally a Kim Garam part, was handled by Heo Yun Jin, and the other Kim Garam parts were digested without difficulty by the members taking turns.
Previously, LE SSERAFIM‘s agency, HYBE and Source Music, completely denied the allegations of sexual assault by Kim Garam, and announced plans to suspend Kim Garam‘s activities for the time being and promote as a five-member system.
This day’s “Inkigayo” stage was the first official stage when LE SSERAFIM started their 5-member activities, and the attention of other fans, including fans, was also focused.
Is it because of this? As of 1pm on May 23rd, the number of views on the stage of LE SSERAFIM‘s “Inkigayo“, which was uploaded on Naver TV that day, exceeded 160,000 people.
Comments such as “I feel better with 5 people” and “I can’t feel an empty seat” were also posted on the video.
In particular, LE SSERAFIM‘s ‘Inkigayo‘ stage, which changed into a five-member system and had their first stage, drew more attention because the number of views was more than twice that of their debut stage.
LE SSERAFIM‘s debut stage recorded 70,000 views as of the same day.
In addition, after starting their activities as a five-member system, LE SSERAFIM‘s new song climbed to 13th in the TOP 100 rankings on the music site Melon, proving their interest.
Meanwhile, recently, Kim Garam , a member of LE SSERAFIM, was caught up in allegations of school violence against her friend Miss A in 2018 when she was in middle school.
The controversy was further aggravated by the release of the photo of the notification of the results of the Autonomous Committee on School Violence Countermeasures that seemed to support this, but Source Music said that Kim Garam was unfairly designated as the perpetrator and was rather a victim of school violence suffering from malicious rumors.
