Reply August 25, 2019 at 9:26 am APPRECIATE YOUR IDOLS. This is the blood sweat and tears they put in to entertain us. Don’t talk shit about any idol because they really be giving it their all! Reply August 25, 2019 at 9:52 am I feel so bad for them, I mean they're expected to work tirelessly and being 100% in perfect form at all times, while also doing it over and over again and also not getting the nutrition, energy or the patience to being a K-Pop Idol Looking at this makes me wanna boycott the whole thing all together Reply August 25, 2019 at 9:55 am Being famous comes at a price though Reply August 25, 2019 at 10:02 am Is D.Holic from this company too?

Worst gimmicky music I’ve heard in a long time. I don’t get the hype and appeal. Bunch of underweight people with no rhythm. Thank Black culture for any ounce of swag these people may ever have.

Reply August 27, 2019 at 4:20 am 내가 보기에는 영상에 나온 분들.. 모두 가능성이 많이 희박하다. 그리고 실패해도 아무것도 안남는게 아니라 백댄서나 댄스 학원을 만들수 있다.옛날에는 걸그룹 숫자가 몇개 안됬지만 지금은 너무 많아지고 경쟁이 너무 치열해져서 꾀 힘들것이다.

Reply August 29, 2019 at 7:45 pm I don't agree how they treat the trainees sometimes as human we're not good at something, we can't force the person to be perfect. Reply August 29, 2019 at 8:56 pm It broke my heart when she did all that training for nothing💔😢 Reply August 29, 2019 at 10:49 pm I really hate how that judge was criticizing that everybody. Instead, she should've told them what they can do better. If you just criticize, they will never know what they can do to be better.
