- Complaints on 'Music Bank' homepage
- Hanteo reps =, "It's not only B1A4 but other album sales that show a similar pattern, including TVXQ. It's normal. The supsicions do not make sense."
- B1A4 reps, "Like Hanteo reps said, it's not true that we did sajaegi. We do not see any worth in responding to this issue."

1. [+1,162, -92] It's because of the irresponsibility of the agency that the issue is continuing on, why doesn't the agency know that? And not one B1A4 fan has confidently brought forward proof of an international group order.

2. [+939, -161] Their receipts are Lonely

3. [+846, -99] All of this would be over already if the fans backed up what they were saying by bringing out the receipts. Why are you asking US to find YOUR receipts?

4. [+808, -152] Since when was B1A4 a group that could sell 40,000 copies in three days? Since when were they Big Bang or Soshi level? Stop playing around with words and put out a real clarification.

5. [+831, -304] What a mess they've gotten themselves into just to get some nugus a #1 trophy ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+312, -13] Because the agency is opting to keep quiet, they're letting the issue grow out of control. They should be responding with more action if what they're saying is true.

7. [+318, -29] I'm curious as to why their company hasn't put out any promotional articles for the group when they sold as much to compete with TVXQ. To keep the issue buried?

8. [+265, -15] The fact that the agency is staying quiet just means that they are hoping the issue will quiet down. Other agencies are so quick to clarify when their artist gets wrapped in controversies like this in the middle of promotions.

9. [+256, -26] I wonder where those 40,000 copies went

10. [+265, -21] Then where are the receipts?

11. [+237, -17] As a bystander, this is so frustrating to watch... Why do companies make their sajaegi so obvious?

12. [+222, -13] This company is making me blow up in frustration. Put out the receipts if it's not a sajaegi.

1. [+522, -49] They did it too obviously... 8,000 spike in sales in two hours.

2. [+433, -48] I'm not uptting B1A4 down or anything but I heard that they couldn't even sell out a 5,000 seat concert. Soshi, TVXQ, SuJu, and Big Bang all have long, big fandoms and struggle to sell 60,000 copies in their first week, which B1A4 somehow did. Fans may argue that it's because Baro got popular for Reply and everything but how are you going to explain album sales for Im Siwan, Suzy, or Eunji's groups then?

3. [+371, -43] Rude to be bringing harm to other artists just to make my own artist win #1 with sajaegi

4. [+83, -1] Are fans really arguing that the public bought the album because Baro got popular with Reply???? In a country that illegally downloads because 60 cent digital music is considered pricy??? That the general public bought 40,000 copies of an album that costs over $10? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Just say that a ghost came and went by ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+65, -3] This isn't their first time, they've been doing this for a while ㅋㅋ and oh look! The competition this time is TVXQ! And they've been out for two weeks already so this is no problem... well what do you know, it is a problem, they gambled too far because what they'd normally sell over an entire promotional period was sold in the first week ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
