Korean netizens commented, “I’m disappointed that there are more foreign members than Korean members,” “YG is failing,” “I feel they’re going to have a lot of skills,” “They don’t have a visual member as pretty as Dara or Jisoo,” “This is a K-pop group, why is there more foreign members?” “Wow, born in 2007, I’m born in 1992, I’m like their aunt,” “To be honest, I’m looking forward to this group because they were impressive with their live singing,” “I don’t think visual matter if they have crazy performance skills,” and, “I think it’s too early to be disappointed.”
