1. [+731] Please discuss it, Hybe... you have nothing to gain from keeping the group like this...

2. [+482] Does Garam own 40% of Hybe's stock or something?
- [+30] If that were actually the case, she would voluntarily leave since she'd know that staying in the group would negatively impact her stock ㅋㅋ 

3. [+463] No, you guys definitely need to be discussing this

4. [+271] So short-sighted... so short-sighted

5. [+369] The longer Hybe tries to wait this out, the more precarious the situation will be for both themselves and Kim Garam, why do they not realize that?

6. [+295] At this point, I'm suspecting there's something between Kim Garam's parents and Hybe down in the roots somewhere

7. [+141] You can tell just by reading the reactions to the group promoting without her just how much she's been holding the group back all this time. Because of her, the whole group has been under scrutiny and now Hybe is trying to use them as a shield for Kim Garam. I can't stand Hybe at all.

8. [+20] Hybe is so ridiculous ㅋ

9. [+92] Just look at how hard Hybe is going for Kim Garam ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+28] They'll wait as long as they can before having her crawl back for promos again

11. [+21] Does Hybe not care for the other members at all?;

12. [+24] Hybe seriously seems so crazy right now ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

13. [+1] Soojin-ah, start rehearsing for Tomboy~

14. [+6] Even if Hybe's being bribed by Kim Garam somehow, they should still be kicking her out for the sake of their future profits...

15. [+30] People should not be letting their attention sway to BTS and Black Pink's scandal. Please keep your eyes on Kim Garam until she is forced to leave the group. Boycott Le Sserafim if you have to;; their digital ranking keeps going up, which gives them no reason to kick out Kim Garam for good. They'll just continue using her for noise marketing...
