objectively the kep1er line up that debuted was one of the best options (tho i personally would have taken yurina over dayeon). their album sales are pretty monstrous thanks to ifans, but korea just doesnt give a shit about them and that is a major failure since the girls arent going to be nearly as booked and busy as produce groups were in the past.
obviously the whole issue started with the show itself. knet animosity, biased editing ect. but i think a lot of pre-debut fans, myself included expected the group itself to be warmed up to a little, especially since the most popular members in korea all made it. but here we are. nowhere to be seen on kcharts. is it rlly just bc of the song? even though even ive was able to overcome a mediocre debut song?
