LE SSERAFIM, a group under HYBE Labels and Source Music, has officially debuted with their mini-album “FEARLESS.” The girls are going on several shows and online programs to promote their debut.

On May 7, “It’s Live” uploaded a YouTube video of LE SSERAFIM performing their debut single, “FEARLESS,” live with a band.

Here, the girls challenged themselves by singing live with a bang instead of being supported by MR or AR, like at music show programs.

To people’s surprise, the girl group’s vocals sounded smooth, with people praising them for their perfect performance. Many even joked that it sounded as if the members of LE SSERAFIM swallowed their CD for breakfast. Not only did LE SSERAFIM sing live, but the members also confidently showed off their dance moves, vibing to the music.

Several members earned praise for their abilities in the video. For example, maknae Hong Eunchae captivated everyone’s hearts with her lovely expression. People believe she has the potential to become one of the most lovable maknaes in the fourth generation.

The idol was previously accused of being a school bully in middle school. People who claimed to be classmates with her stated she smoked and drank underage and bullied juniors who did not greet her well. Photos of inappropriate posts on her Facebook also became a hot topic.

Though she performed confidently, many did not like that Source Music was pushing Kim Garam as the group’s center. People believe the stan-attracting members should be the center, such as Sakura and Kazuha. It rubbed people the wrong way when Kim Garam stood in the center and covered Kazuha, who was behind her.

People believe LE SSERAFIM has the potential to be a top girl group, but this can only be done if Source Music concludes investigations on Kim Garam’s bullying case. Many hope the company is looking into the situation more seriously as Kim Garam continues to promote.
