Netizens mentioned that besides earning international recognition, LE SSERAFIM and (G)I-DLE’s common denominator is how they overcame the issue concerning former members’ bullying controversies.

It could be remembered that while promoting ‘FEARLESS,’ the group temporarily halted their schedule due to the bullying controversy that concerned Kim Garam, LE SSERAFIM’s former member.

In July 2022, it was announced that Garam would leave LE SSERAFIM and will terminate her contract with HYBE Labels.

Despite the difficulties the girls faced during their debut promotion and the onslaught of losing a member, LE SSERAFIM proved that they are fearless and are up to take any trials with confidence, as manifested by their latest release, ANTIFRAGILE.

Meanwhile, in August 2021, CUBE Entertainment announced the departure of Soojin. Henceforth the girl group shall pursue future activities and promotions as five members.

Same with Garam, Soojin left the group due to school violence allegations. Regardless of her departure, many NEVERLANDs speculate that ‘I love’ is an album dedicated to the former member.

As LE SSERAFIM and (G)I-DLE capitalize on their talent, it is undeniable that these girls do not just deserve to be applauded because of their abilities and visuals but also for how they have displayed bravery and confidence during times of trials.
